Hi Francis,

Well-done HDR processing. Very natural looking and you've balanced the tonal range nicely. The human interest factor is well seen here, a nice tourist shot.

Hello Francis :)

You showed this expedition on boats in perfect light and colours very curiously,
and the black gate in scales make up the part of the interesting background in the background.
The very good work executed magnificently.

With best wishes.

Just like a ride at Disneyland only this is natural not man-made. I'd love the explore this cave. Nicely captured with good lighting. Good pov and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Francis!
Interesting place. Must be very pleasant to visit it. Excellent perspective. The black cave makes great contrast with the warm, vivid colors and adds interest to the scene. Splendid light. The vertical format is perfect.
Very well done: congratulations.
Have a nice week Francis.
ciao! Vanda

It must be an attractive trip to the caves, very nice shot, perfect sharpness and light

A wonderful capture of the amazing caves with superb details and clarity, Francis!

I like the POV and the daily life scene you have managed to catch in here.
The sharpness and DOF are well done, and the HDR treatment to the picture really brings out details here.
Good job!


Hello Francis, I like this shot of holiday makers just getting on with the job of enjoying their holiday! No-one seems to be taking any notice of you.
A good PoV and DoF.The cave entrance makes the perfect frame for the people.
A colourful scene.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Francis...you succeeded in turning this scene into art...great colors and tones.
