Re: Samarkand Hotel by Monika Dannemann I can say with confidence that this image is the most accurate reproduction from Monika's book online..
A number of years ago I released a full set from her book that I scanned, that set along with many other images that I have found online are flawed from the scanning process as there's bleeding taking place along the borders from the white paper surrounding the image.. a quick google search will reveal these flaws and many of which derive from my original set.
This image was photographed using the sharpest Canon camera and lens in RAW format. Canon 5DS with a Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L. very minimal post production.
