[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The bird wasn't so lonely actually. There were a few thousands of flamingos, but what a crop can do, right?!
Photo was taken at Laguna Colorada, a red coloured lake (due to algues and iron sediments) at 3500m altitude (for you footers: around 11000 ft).
Made some minor adjustments to colour saturation. The white in the background is a bank of borax. A substance used for the making of cosmetics (soap, shampoo,...)

Hi Joris,
Nice idea to single this one out. A shame about the OE on the water in the BG, maybe crop the top more and leave space on the bottom instead? A very well composed image however, and the flamingo looks nicely exposed. Interesting pink tones on the water.


Hello Joris! Amazing miminal composition. Wonderful colours. Perfect capture. Ideal frame. Well done!

Grate minimal shot
god colors but i have to agree with Scott for the BG
otherwise beautiful reflection of the flaming
grate colors

Have a good day!


Hi Joris
Great mood behind this, I like your toughtful note and wisely choosed title.
Simple but eyecatching composition, despite that OE part of water, it is a well managed shot.
Best wishes

'Morning Joris,
An elegant soothing composition. I don't actually mind the 'oe' from the water. To me, it adds complexity and provides a wide spectrum of exposure. Best regards.

dear Joris,
a fantastic and illusionary picture.
like in a illustrated tale book, and it must be read on this beautiful and mysterious water.
rippled reflections are splendid, it looks a universe.
thank you for your excellent shot,

Beautiful look , perfect pic colors and details .
