Jurassic Park (231 days ago)
A real eye grabber here with silhouettes at rest at the end of the day and the colours are vibrant and visually excite us. I like this shot a lot.
I am pleased you like the image. It took several visits to the site to get the sun in the right place as it set, and to get the sky vivid as well. The time frame for the shot as the sun set was very tight. Not much wriggle room to take another by moving position as I was standing on the top of a crumbling cliff.

I bet this is a SOOC image. Simple and strong following the KISS principle and I am a sucker for KISS. Sharp and clear with good exposure.
Thank you Olga I adjusted Shaddows and Highlights in CC.
That's what I thought...very little monkeying with image, seems the more one monkeys with it the less beautiful it becomes. A lesson worth remembering: get it right, right off the bat.
You are up early? 5:15 a.m. and I would rather be warm in bed under many comforters. You caught a bit of a "sundog" (that's what we call them in Canada's north country). I really like the story of this image, not only a sunrise, but a sunrise giving us much to chew on. I do wish you had put up in your notes about where this was taken. Where are you going? Why are you going there? Top notch work here.............as always.
Thank you Olga for your comments. I took this image when I was on my usual 30 days shift in the oil field. It's usual time for going from the camp to the rig site Some years ago there were few joint ventures with Russians and Canadians here in this region. That was a good time to work with guys from Canada. We often sow "sundogs" here. I have lots of sundog pics. BTW, few days ago we had sundog, but I did not grab my camera.
So the dog got away Did you know about the island in the Arctic where Denmark and Canada are at odds as to whom it belongs to? The Danes claim it as their own because of it's proximity to Greenland and Canadians claim it as theirs. So, on a regular basis, the Danes come over and remove the Canadian Flag, put up the Danish flad and leave behind a bottle of Schnapps. Then the Canadians come around, remove the Danish flag, put up the Canadian one and leave a bottle of Canadian whiskey. Now THAT is the way to fight a battle!
Thank you Olga, yes I heard about this odd war story. AFAIK, there was a proposal made to make the Hans island with shared sovereignty under two flags (and two bottles) I wish all disputes would end like this

Good composition - some excellent points of interest to keep the eye working through the image. This type of shot needs sharper focus not the soft treatment which for me flattens it out too much.
There is a killer technique out there called the ORTON effect which indeed softens out and ruins otherwise good photos. FULL BLOOM is a good example of a f**ked up image. This is a good reminder so thank you.
Boats on Koh Lanta (232 days ago)
Looks like Thai boats...ahhh Koh Lanta, of course! A romantic getaway, this would look great in a travel magazine. Tide is down, the day is ending and your piece is embedded with peace.
Thanks for the comment. Appreciated.
