Hello My long lost pals,

I know it has been I while since I posted but I have been busy at work and not had time to post or take photos!

This was taken on my holiday in Bahrain recently, the Jeep is my Dads and was mine and my brothers transport for the week. Its is a cool vehicle to drive and we had lots of offers to buy it.

Taken down the south end of the Island which is the only bit of natural landscape left in Bahrain and it seems to be shrinking all the time as Rock is quarried to build more and more roads and buildings.

Hope you like it.


P.S Taken with a sunset filter and autoleveled in PS. I liked the long thin crop as it cut it down to the essentail elemaents of the photo.

PPS I have posted the original for anyone who feels like it to play with.

bonjour Tom,
super composition, avec juste cette jeep qui vient apporter une forte note de contraste dans ce paysage si... rose
bonne journée


Great panoramic... Great colours too. Well taken.

Hi Tom,
Nice shot, I like the colour that the filter has produced, a good panoramic landscape shot, I know the jeep is not moving but In My Opinion think it would be better the other way around with room infront.
Regards Andy

Hey there

Hello stranger long time no critique..love this shot, simple and straightforward and very effective, excellent colours,nicelty seen and shot

TFS kind regards Helen

Hi Tom
Just been out for a curry with John and he told me about this jeep.
Cracking shot and brilliant PP
Regards Pez

beautiful composition tom. I'm a little bit disturbed with the bluish color cast. The exposure too is a little bit high for a sunset picture. However, these factors were all surpassed by the powerful composition.

Hello Tom,

Excellent landscape! Wonderful colors and perfect light, bright and contrast! Very well done!
Congratulations and TFS,

on wednesday

good composition Tom, colors and the sunset is amazing, well captured.

Wow what asuper conception , the colors are special and very hard . I like this style post be sure

hello Tom

Very lovely jeep as FG subject to contrast with the desert and afternoon sun colors. Nice pp work for this effect

tfs, bill

Hi Tom, nice shot of the LJ80 and the sunset, I like the long thin crop and the colours. Is that a monopod I see on the bonnet....?
Cheers, Dad

Have a wonderful weekend,


Hi tom!

Amazing outstanding view and colors!

Orginal is even better!
I have never seen something like that!
I want to go to Bahrain!!

Nice one Tom, this brings back a few mwmories! I love the colours in the sky, and the composition works really well, especially cropped like this. Personally, I like it because the jeep is on the left of the shot - even though it's technically "wrong", it seems to me to give the picture a big sense of space.
Cheers, John.

Hi Tom,
Beautiful composition,nice place,good light.Congratulation.
Best regards,

Sorry I missed your return Tom!
I love the pink sky and dreamy yellow Sun here.
The widescreen presentation is very appropriate.
Excellent shot and welcome back!
