Zeiss Distagon 60mm

We were closing our Summer issue at work and we were missing a picture of Serra da Arrábida and my boss asked if I could go over there and take a couple of simple shots. So I went there with my son on a little hiking trip and I toke the Hasselblad and a roll of Kodak E100G.
My task was to take simple landscape shots, we only needed one so I thought: why not? I know slide film can be very tricky but out of 12 at least one should make it.
Slide film can be very tricky, correct color and exposure are very hard to get. That does not worry me much. I can always adjust later in Photoshop and if the picture is going to be printed on the magazine I will surely adjust it, color and exposure.
For me color slide film gives very little room for adjustments. Unless I have a great original to start with, I will have a hard time trying to make it right. C-41 film is much easier to adjust digitally.
Unfortunately color slide film requires a keen eye, competent light reading, competent scene interpretation, all things I do not have. Here are some results.
