In July and at the beginning of August I was in Africa visiting Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls). It was a magical trip. Seeing wild animals which I usually see only on TV it made me fall in love with them even more. They are all spectacular! Here are a few images, all taken with Nikon d810 and Tamron 150-600 G2:
#2 African elephant
#4 Lilac Breasted Roller
#5 Female black rhino
PS: I have uploaded some images to 500px and I was wondering how can I paste links here? Thank you for your help.
It was on my bucket list as well. I planned to visit Iceland in 2015 but I injured my ankle just before departure and had to postpone my trip.
I had Iceland already on my bucket list - with this series it moved up the list.
You should visit Iceland soon. It is getting more and more crowded. As I mentioned before if you want to go there during midnight sun season you can take advantage of long periods of sunshine (when there is sunny weather). It is less crowded after 9 PM on many locations and you get better light as well, as it is golden hour(s).
At the end of June I finally visited long awaited destination of Iceland. My girlfriend and I spent 14 days there. It is such a magnificent place to visit and I want to go there some day again. Yes, it is very, very expensive there and more and more tourist visit it, yet you can still enjoy Iceland's beautiful nature in peace, mainly late in the evening (one can take advantage of Iceland's long hours of sunlight during summer time).
Here are a few images from my trip. All images were taken with my Nikon d750.
Londrangar, Snaefellsnes peninsula
The famous Kirkjufell mountain:
I will upload more images in the the next few days.
Urban, I tried lightening the foreground, but I couldn't get it to look natural with the post-sunset feel I got in the sky. It is probably doable, but I couldn't help inducing an artificial feeling that way.
Thanks to all who participated in this week's editing exercise. Some interesting interpretations.
Bart, I like sharp rocks on your image and your overall conversion to b&w. I think rocks really come to life and the sea just fades in the background.
deano, I like your interpretation as well. It reminds me of an old movie scene with much softer approach than Bart's.
Peter, If Bart's interpretation highlights the rocks, I think yours highlights the sky with very gentle and soft colors. I would just add a little bit of light on the rock and that would be it. I hope you don't mind me saying (writing) that.
As I wrote, I had some issues with this image. Being very busy at work at the moment, here is my take on this image:
I applied these settings:
I also added graduated filter on the top and bottom of the image and added some highlights on the rocks.
