A nice photo of this site, Ninfa - the humid setting is very well rendered and the color of the sulphorous spring is quite distinctive. The fine backlight effect on the greens over most of the frame makes up for the slightly bright appearance in the upper right corner. Beautiful shot, and thanks for the very informative note as well.

That water is such an odd colour. Does the river smell very strong? Very nice composition and detail, just a little bit of over exposure in the top right, maybe a bit of PP would help. Great notes, thanks for sharing Ninfa.

Nice one ninfa nice place, the only problem with it is the over exposed sky, always diificult when under tree and it is so dark, oyu could under expose the tree area a bit then lighten that afterwards .

Excellent photo of what could be a scene from the days of the dinosaurs. The unusual colour of the water and the heavt vegetation makes this unusual but interesting. Many of your close pictures of insects are terrific and this puts them into some context. TFS.
