[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lagoa do fogo, meaning "Fire Lagoon", is a lagoon located, as usual in this island, on a volcanic crater. Although this looks a peaceful place, it's one of the most active volcanic places on the Island. It's so powerful, locals managed to get electic power from geothermal activity. This energy, besides clean, is strong enough to provide 60% of the population.

The texture of the water is stunning. Like silk. Nice light and colours and interesting info.

Olá João,
Cenário imponente, gosto da côr e profundidade. Boa continuação,

Gosto muito da composicao. Belissimo cenario e luz. Parabens

Nice POV. And good sharpness on the photo. The scene is mind blowing. Good capture.

Um belo olhar sobre um local maravilhoso!! bela luz!

Very good picture, Joao. I like the composition a lot. You're right, it does look like a peaceful place! Thanks for the interesting note.


lovely wide shot and interesting note too.

Good to see that you managed to keep some detail on the foreground slopes. It's easy to black those out when adjusting for the exposure on the water.

Did you use a polariser. If not, this may have helped a little with the reflection on the water.

Take Care,


  • Great

Captura muito boa dum cenário espantoso...Em relação á crítica do Lance (correcta mas com solução inadequada), acho que a correcção da gama dinâmica pode muito bem ser feita nas "curve" e "levels". Um pequeno ajuste e só com má vontade se podem fazer reparos críticos...Parabens.
