Hi Achim,
Nice composition of a beautiful scenery. Lovely colors and mood. Well seen and well done. Thanks
Best regards

Hi Achim,
Excellent example of minimalsm in photography. reat composition of all the different coloured horizontal areas. Although a bit small a less wider frame would be better in this case I think. Nonetheless a fine posting my friend!

Hello Achim

Beautiful panoramic!
excellent look of this salt bed.
Yes in the state of Rio de Janeiro, we have one
great amount of these salt beds in Cabo Frio.
Fantastic visual and compo!
Congratulations, excellent!


Hello Achin
Great artistic composition with panoramic effect creating a feeling of lonelyness. I like the different colors of the different grounds. The subject look very small in the vast desert of salt.

Hello Achim,
Impressive shot. It gives me eternity feeling.
Simple but beautiful...

Very interesting perspective in this shot; you've conveyed the sense of size and expansiveness really well.
Good work, this is a great image,

Beautiful and simple composition, with great use of space and atmosphere. Love the soft colors and the long horizontals. Does the salt affect the donkey's(?) feet? Excellent, well done!

Nice shimmer from the heat haze Achim. Soft colours, the lone buggy and horse seeming to float on air. Nicely done,

Ciao Achim, fascinating composition with wonderful orizontal lines, great exposure, very well done, ciao Silvio

ciao achim..bellissimo lavoro..ottima composizione...molto particolare...bellissimi colori....bel mix di tonalita...complimenti

Beautiful scene. It reminds me of the postcard in the stores. Good composition and presented very nicely.

Beautiful, subtle composition. I like the horizontals - the endlessness perfectly relieved by the cart.
