[Gdal-dev] UTM to Lat/Lon

I am a GDAL beginner, and I have a very basic question.
(It is probably a FAQ)
I have some TIF file defined in UTM (zone 19N), NAD27.
I can retrieve from those tif :
- The ProjectionRef (PROJCS["NAD27 / UTM zone
19N",GEOGCS["NAD27", . and so on.)
- And the 6 affine transformation coefficients
I would like to implement to raster projection: Converting a pixel
coordinate (in the bitmap) into a position in Lat/Lon coord system (in
WGS84 for example)
I guess the way to do it is:
1) Convert from pixel coordinate to the geotiff file coordinate system,
ie in my case UTM zone 19, in meters. (There is no problem for that, I
will use the affine coefficients)
2) Convert from the geotiff file coordinate system to lat/lon system.
(u,v)Pixel ---------1----------> UTM(x,y) meters ---------2---------->
How to do 2) ??
Am I on the right way?
Do you have a sample doing this kind of projection?
Note : I have tried to create a OGRCoordinateTransformation with my
file's OGRSpatialReference and a simple lat/lon OGRSpatialReference. It
does not work, even if the transformation seems to be well created.
