Reading about the theme of today "colour pallet" I kept coming back to this fanatstic scene time and time again. The beautiful shades of orange of Dead Vlei. The sand, the dunes and even the dead trees, everything matches. Only exception maybe the blue sky.

Shot in JPEG
PS CS3 processed. Clarity increased. Highlights and saturation adjusted.
Resized and framed.

Oh Edwin - what super a super capture. Well composed and the colours are perfect for the Theme - well done

Edwin, eigenlijk zijn dit meer mijn voorkeurskleuren op de kleurenwaaier. Heerlijke foto - fantastische compositie en passend warme kleurnuances ^-^.


PS Die blauwe lucht is precies de tegenovergestelde kleur in de waaier en die heb je dus nodig om de oranjetinten nog beter uit te laten komen.

Hi Edwin, this is so stunning!! the colours are awesome, I can really feel the desert and the heat!
I love your frame too!

Hoi Edwin,
Die Namibië-foto's van jou vind ik geweldig mooi! Deze mag er óók weer zijn hoor: prachtige kleur en een heel sterke compositie.
Groet uit Renesse,

This is what i call Fantastic shot :)
very dramatic and strong of characters.
I like to call this photo "still Have a hope" like my photo if you see my photo in my gallery.
very well done for this shot.


What can be said about such an incredible image Edwin?
One has to almost just enjoy it for what it is.
There is nothing imperfect about this shot.
Color, placement, composition, presentation, DOF it's all here!
A masterful landscape image.
Well done.
- Vincent

Hoe vaak je dit soort afbeeldingen ook ziet, het is en blijft wonderschoon.
Ook hier prachtige oker tinten van het zand, het vaal blauw van de lucht en de zinderende hitte af te lezen aan de dode bomen....


Belle présentation qui représente bien les difficultés de la vie dans cette région.
Bonne journée.

Hello Edwin,

You have composed this with great skill!

The tree is just in the right place and with the smaller ones in the b/g, gives a good sense of perspective.
Good use of thirds and the colours are amazing!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Edwin!
Wonderful image from Namibia!
Looks so strange!
Great colours and perfect clarity!
Lovely composition!
Best regards!

Hi Edwin,
Good colours and composition, I like the sharpness of the line between the sky and the sand.
Well done
Regards Andy

Hello Edwin

What an incredible shot here, the colours are amazing and the contrast between the trees and the sand is just outstanding. The detail is superb here and your framing enhances the shot perfectly. A superb posting my friend

Hier laat je zien zien dat ook landschappen wel degelijk aan jou besteed zijn Edwin!
Dit kan zo in de GEO.DE Sahara kalender,spetterende kleuren en leegte compositie.
Ook je frame is met stijl en smaak aangepast aan de foto,goed zo!

This is really a fantastic image Edwin and thinking "out of the box" with great creativity for this week's theme. TFS
and into my favourites...

This is so nice, Edwin! Very nice composition, you framed your shot very very well. I like the hues of warm orange and the cool bluish-white contrast of the sky.

Beautiful capture, nice framing and colors. Have you tried varying your composition on this one, maybe the main tree is off-centered?

Hello Edwin

She deserves the theme that you gave the this beautiful picture!
Wonderful visual and presentation!
The colour combination and contrast i great,
and me love this lonely tree.
Congratulations, great shot!


Hi Edwin,

hello Edwin

Nice capture of this stark contrast of sand dune color vs the dark branches, pale blue sky and yellow sand. Great composition in this pov.

Larger branch, smaller one and smaller ones. Good layout.

tfs, bill

Hallo Edwin.
Ik moet jou toch maar in mijn 'vrienden file' plakken, dan mis ik deze foto's tenminste niet meer. (moet ik er wel een ander uitgooien, haha)
Ja Namibia. Mijn vrienden uit Suid Afrika (wonen nu in Qatar, maar zijn op dit moment weer even 'thuis' in Kaapstad) zijn geboren en getogen in Namibia. Niks is er mooier, nie, zeggen ze.
Kan het geloven als ik dit soort plaatjes weer zie.
Groeten van Jan
