Recognition of my camera work as being pretty good has been expressed by some professional photographers I interact with in the blogosphere. Wow and thanks is all I can say! Cool ! To have great photographers encouraging me is really heartening, and the tips they are passing on I am lapping up!
Mari at mariscamera.blogspot.com/ has been fantastic at passing on her wealth of knowledge about the artistry of photography. Lots of tips and techniques are talked about on her blog. Her latest post sees photos submitted by a host of people to illustrate different methods of creating that great shot. And a couple of mine have been selected.
Take a look at her latest article. mariscamera.blogspot.com/
There's a few other photos I thought were pretty good which I wanted to send on to her. Let's have a look at these. Shot in Namibia and Botswana last May/June.
In this first shot I like the way the clouds are highlighted along their bottom edges.
After the sun has set behind Brandberg Mountain, Namibia.
And from Botswana.
This I like because of the light reflecting off the crocodiles scaled bodies.
I like this because the eye is confused by the closeness of two zebra. It's almost as if you can see both sides of the same animal.
The impala below is in such clear perspective, and the shadow of another upon her side is very interesting.
