[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These trees made me think of long thin legs taking a stroll on the beach. Actually, this is the world renowned Sodwana Bay, and inbetween the "trunks", you can see people snorkelling. Closer towards the horizon, there could be people diving with the sharks! It is a very beautiful beach, and this shot was taken through the trunks of some nearby trees on the shore. Unfortunately, at the time of the shot, I was not so familiar with the camera settings, so the quality on this was not so good. I had to do almost everything, from sharpening, contrast, levels, noise and even run through NeatImage. Just another part of our beautiful country.

You right Judy - very well spotted - could perhaps be a giraf ;-) Fine quality after the workshop.

I think in your post-work you pulled a lot of quality and detail out of this one, Judy. As this one comes mostly in my favorite color, blue, you can't do a lot of wrong in any case, but the idea for your composition is very nicely chosen - the pieces of the tree do indeed suggest "legs". Well seen and captured.

great idea and shot Judy! beautiful colours nicely composed, well done

this reminds me of the legs of an elephant in a painting from salvador dali. well done I wish I was in South Africa, the weather has stuck in the US, lately east coast at least. great job in Neatimage, Judy!

If this are legs, I am glad that you cropped the top, it may violate the TOS. A very nice shot, Judy. I like the curves of this legs, na dthere's a wonderful ocean behind.

Well seen Judy, they certainly do look like walking legs...excellent! Lovely colours, makes me want to go back to Duban, but hey, that's life.
Nice one.

Great title and composition! I've not been to your country but from what I've seen on TV it must really be quite lovely.
