[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
...headed back to the camp before the rain fell... I had this feeling I forgot something :D

- Contrast adjustments
- shot at ISO 800 for the fun of it, was testing how the 28mm prime lens + D50 perform at higher ISO. Results are pretty ok, 28mm Nikkor is a fine glass.
- NeatImage, surprisingly very minimal noise at ISO 800

Oh, this was shot with a tripod (pun intended) ;)

The photo with the tripod cloned out is in the workshop.

Well composed this beautiful scene . .


Awesome shot and awesome clarity!
It's a great composition with the overpowering clouds in the top and land converging to a far horizon. Wish I could give you 10 points for this pic.


Hi Allan,

The image is VERY sharp and clear. The clouds really give it a special feel. Good range of tones and clear contrasts.

Hello Allan,
A nice and a bit funny minimalistic composition!
Impressive is the capture of this wonderful sky, well exposed and with excellent details in the cloud formation...
The brown and green in the ground contrast well with the sky!
