[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Khasab, Oman

Khasab the campers haven and ideal pleace for a getaway...the shot featured is that of one of the many mountain goats taken at 7.00 am. auto levels and colours cropped and sharpened in photoshop....

The small town of Khasab is situated on the northern tip of Oman's Musandem Peninsula, separated from the mainland by the United Arab Emirates. The striking scenery of this rarely visited peninsula is marked by dramatic mountain ranges. This region along the Strait of Hormuz is responsible for approximately 25 percent of the world's oil production. During the 16th century, the Portuguese settled here, leaving behind small fortresses, which were taken over by the Persians.

Hi dugulk
Good work !
I liked the landscape viewed bi the goat !
good DOF and POV.
I think you forced too much the sharp tool on PS, (you created a halo in the goat), but the result is great.
well done.

Wonderful ! Great moment, great details in landscape, excellent composition, much like a symphony ! One really can feel the wind that ruffles the goats fur. Thanks for sharing, Patrick
