This is my favorite shot of all my desert pictures, for the colors and especially for the simplicity of the lines and composition.
The Namib desert colors are unique...

Hi Luis,
Great shot, beautiful colour contrasts. As with Tim this is a place on my list, specifically to photograph the area.

A very artistic composition. Good exposition and good sharpness.

Classic Namibian desert picture, Luis. Simple in features but very beautiful. The tones of light and shade are perfect.


Hello Luis,
great view, good colours and compo, TFS.
Best wishes,

Hi Luis,

This is a beautiful photo with great lines and color. The low light gives it a good combination of light and dark.

Une belle prise artistique et originale.Félicitations pour les belles couleurs et les joli contrastes.

Merci Luis!


Ola Luis,
Fantastica ... digna do mais belo postal ou cartaz de filme. A escolha do 80-200 parece estranha, mas depois de ver o resultado deixe de o ser.
Estas contente com o 80-200 Estou a pensar comprar um daqui a uma semana nos USA. Tens alguma ideia de como ele se comporta com um bom duplicador de focal ?


Esta foto é um espectáculo

wonderful shot, excelent POV and coloures. IS it for TE? ;-) TFS

Privet Luis.
It seemed, that the American canyons. Magnificent paints, a composition and a foreshortening. Bravo two times!!

Hi Luis

Stunning shot. The lines flow with ease and the colours are magnificent. What a wonderful site, cram packed with visual impact. Nice work and a pleasure to view. :-)

Not only is this a fantastic image, it is also art with an awesome perspective. Well done Luis. :)

I spotted this today and thought fantastic. But there is a little more noise in the sky than I would like if it were mine, shame your not allowing WS's.. its useful to see the difference....

BUT Fantastic photo, colours and lighting. You really know how to take stunning photos of this desert.

Colores Impresionantes...
un ritmo magnifico!

This is a wonderful picture Luis. I love the contrast between the orange and blue. Very good visual impact. Light is fantastic. Composition is excellent. Thanks for sharing!

Simple and perfect! Brilliant colors! Excellent job! TFS!


awesome and stunning landscape picture, the dessert in my mind is dry, hot and arid, but this picture is kinda different, excellent contrast and composition, its really like a painting for me, I found the web address annotation is a bit to big for this beautiful image, TFS

great pic, TFS Ori

The red colour looks like glowing iron.
The curve and lines are perfect!


ça parait irréel !!
aleks belles courbes!!

Hello Luis,
I agree. The lines and the compo are great.
The light is wonderful.
Well done

Hi Luis,

Its a very beautifully composed landscape. The contrasting colours are adding to the beauty of the picture.

Thank your for sharing.
