Hansie!! Welcome to TL!! lol! Wonderful shot! I love these birds! Nice shot here, nice thirds! The sky is very dramatic and really adds to the shot. I love the streaks that the birds left in the water! Super shot!

Hi Hans
Całe wieki cię tu nie było. Znowu miałeś cudowną podróż. Boliwia, to na pewno bardzo interesujący kraj. Mam nadzieję, że nam choć trochę pokażesz na zdjęciach.
A beautiful space in the picture.
Best Regards

Hi Hans,
A very nice photo,& welcome to TL, IMHO I have one observation, if the subject is the flamingos, the sky and clouds are taking away from it. It might look much better the you crop the sky just above the mountain top. Otherwise this is a good photo.

Hi Hans,
After a while I see you posting again. A very dramatic capture, one problem is that the flamingos look tiny on the image. I don't know how to deal with that here, I think there are two photos here.

Beauty Hans! I like the shallow crop. The colors and sharpness are fantastic. Unbelievable landscape. Well done

neat shot, the layers in this composition are nice, the mountain has a unique charm,
take care,

Hi Hans...this is an excellent shot. Very nice tones and focus. Very artistic shot.


Hee die Hans !

Lange tijd niks meer van je gehoord. Leuk dat je weer wat upload.
Zelf ben ik ook minder actief tegenwoordig. Je moet maar net input hebben,nietwaar? Maar jij bent naar Afrika geweest en zult wel genoeg hebben.

Mooi plaatje, prachtig landschap. Dat wolkje boven die berg doet het 'm. :-) Het lijkt op een vulkaan-pufje.


Wonderful Hans,
A great picture...
Bravo !!!

Excellent photo. Great view. You've taken a nice moment, when the birds start to fly. Good job.

Dear Hans,
Welcome back to TL. Lovely shot. like the dramatic sky, flying birds. Great sharpness & colors. Well done & TFS.
Kind Regards,

Nice to see you back Hans!!! Nice view of the high Bolivian lakes here making good use of the pano format too...

The saturation is excellent and the timing as the birds take-off is great!
