I tried to replicate your work on the Alps' hillshade, but without success. I just can't obtain these long straight crests, although I am able to reduce noise and sharpen the image using Photoshop. Could you possibly give more information on this (software, tools)?

Hi Nick and Kathi
My eyes got used to the default projection I guess, but I agree, it doesn't look right. Your idea, Kathy, of displaying the river network is also great. I have to find a suitable colour ramp now. Actually my choice for blacking out low elevations, which I understand is arguable, is to shed more light on the alpine structure.. My point is that the map is not intented as a backrgound for any other information or text, but is a 'stand-alone' picture. However, I still reckon that the colour ramp could be improved.
I am grateful for your useful comments.
All good wishes
