Photographer's Note

Another view of the lake of Santa Croce, the pov is exactly at the opposite side of the precedent -see Here - (...and 1 hour of run later ;D-) ...), taken from the nautical circle of Poiatte. "Poiatte" is in the local dialect the name of the birds of prey 'poiane': buzzards (buteo vulgaris). In fact i can see these birds very often here.
Poiatte is even the best spot for windsurf (always afternoon, best time in spring) in this lake!

tech:
ISO: 50
Exposure mode: Program
Drive mode: Single frame shooting
Lens: 7,1 to 21,3mm - Focal length: 7,1mm
Subject distance: 655 m
AF mode: Single AF
Focus point: [Center]
Image quality: Superfine
White balance: Auto
Saturation: Normal
Contrast: Normal
Sharpness: Low
N.B.:
Even for sharpen control the right solution is to shot RAW (CRW in the Canon dialect...) and define the amount in post proc., i know it.
But this (old) model of canon use for RAW 10 and not 12 bits: the consequence is a very little difference in color quality (visible only p.es. in a sunset) with a significant longer post processing work (almost with my system)
I have tryed many tests and my actual conclusion is to shot JPG, at least when i take photos during a run... it's for me simpler.
The sharpness is set to "LOW" not because i like particulary a poor sharpness, but because the standard 'NORMAL' is too oversharped (clearly visible a white line along the borders). I prefer to sharpen in post proc.
