[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this picture of The Pinnacle in Mpumalanga province. It was a cloudy and foggy day. Light wasn't in my favor. Although used f/16....; ISO 4000
This is a Quartzite Pinnacle...Height 30m (98ft). Originally sandstone.... still erosion going on.

Hello Srikumar,
Soft light in South Africa is always good and you had wonderful atmosphere here. The mist looks like it is smoke emanating from the pinnacle. Just beautiful to behold. Well done.

PS: Perhaps you could have boosted the saturation just slightly but very good as is.

Hi Srikumar,
POV to your advantage as you tower above the pinnacle. The mist covering the tops like a blanket is clearly shown.A different angle in shifting the composition to the right and excluding the harsh sky in the left, just a suggestion. Overall fantastic and natural presentation.

Hi Srikumar,
great PoV and a good result under difficult conditions

Ciao Srikumar, fascinating misty landscape with fantastic pinnacle, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Lovely spot. Not sure about the pinnacle almost in the centre of the photo but the colour and moodiness of the image is good. I saw this spot many times with different weather conditions and always preferred the overcast and/or mist on the mountain view.
Well done
ps. Some rock climbers once disturbed a bees nest very near the top of the pinnacle and got stung very badly. There was no quick escape for them .

Another distinguished picture by very natural lights and colours very impressive image well done SRIKUMAR BALIAL
