Very good capture and postprocessing, Marie! The silhouette works fine, and so do the color.
Regards, Martin

Interessante Himmelsfärbung. Ist das so Orginal? Die Antilopen und Bäume davor im Schattenriss wirken sehr gut! Sehr schöne Aufnahme.

Just wonderful, well done

Great work...
Welcome to FC!

Ruud van der Lubben, 8.07.2006 at 9:38h

Very nice silhouete with a very good feel !

Victor Servián, 8.07.2006 at 14:38h

Un trabajo muy fino, las siluetas son hermosas. Felicitaciones.

Theo Weijmer, 8.07.2006 at 17:23h

Very good silhouet and nice gentle colors.
Greetings Theo

Mark Johnston, 8.07.2006 at 20:28h

Hope no one minds, but the fist words out of my mouth when I saw this was "bad ass!"
Great shot.

wovo, 9.07.2006 at 20:26h

very good - like it .

Suggestion: use a (very small) inner frame (outline) - so one can see where the frame on the botton ends and the picture starts.

Veronika Ahlin, 9.07.2006 at 20:41h

What a lovley shot!

Esti Eini, 9.07.2006 at 21:05h

Just a wonderful shot of nature

Frank Cecconi, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h

Patrick Parenteau, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h

The sillohettes, colour and composition are very calming. We are viewing a private slice of time where everything stops for a moment while the sun breaks the horizon. The image is sharp with lots of negative space. Pro

Valfoto, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h

Pro for me too

Peter Kis kalóz, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h


Marcus Gutsche, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h

Nice work. I like the composition and the warm colour. There is a little bit too much dark in the bottom part of the picture for my taste and I would have cropped it. Still PRO! Regards, Marcus

Abdul Khaliq, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h

Sorry for breaking chord of appreciations, imho more cropping at lower dark area makes it better.

Clà Riedi, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h


Christian Knospe, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h


Patrick Parenteau, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h

Just a quick word on the "cropping the bottom" comments. Marie added a black border which makes it look like there is more black on the bottom of the shot. Just a note..

Robert L. Roux, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h

PRO ... ;-))

Kathryn Dixon, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h

I think this is a great photo and a wonderful start in the fc. Welcome, Marie. With a few small touches it would be a gallery photo for me: no frame and maybe a slight recrop to take out the bush at the left or add more of it. skip, but only just.

Peter Mertz, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h


Ali Erbas, 10.07.2006 at 1:42h

Oh lord above, Marie your pictures set in the true African bush veld, are attributing to my itchy feet.
I am tempted to kom kuier in die land van my voorvaders.
