While archiving tons of films and pics I found the said Sand Canyon pictures from several years ago.
And you know what? I must've had tomatoes on my eyes (okay, german saying don't know the english expression), those pictures were perfectly fine! This goes for a lot of other old pics too.
Just wanted to let you know. *smirk*
Oh, and I made my appointments for the application pictures, I'll get them taken on my birthday in exactly one week, wohoo. I can't wait to see the results.
