[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken at an important archaeological Inca site in Ecuador called Ingapirca , meaning " Wall of the Inca " , obviously the stone structures here live up to its name and reputation as it is the most important Inca site in this country . Will post one or two photos of this great place eventually , so i do not intend to describe this site at length at this time as the photo has more to do with showing a simple scene of a tourist couple enjoying a reading session in a pleasant enough grassy field after their sightseeing of the site , i thought the lamas were a nice addition to the BG. I had done quite a bit of walking myself even though the site is rather small and i was making my way to the exit when i caught this . I also found the cool afternoon refreshing for reading and picture taking, it's pretty cool up here at 3230 m above the sea .
F/8 , ISO 80 AT 1/250 , applied the burning tool to the hat, succesfully ,hum not sure ,,, curves adj, sharpened and framed ,
Thanks for dropping by ,

Hi Carol
such a beautiful moment captured here in a cool calm atmosphere... they seem absorbed in their books!! the lamas are definitely a plus here, and the depth of this green field is outstanding.. very good idea, well balanced and an excellent frame!


Hello Carol,
Lovely capture of this nice scene. Excellent focus, colors, POV and lighting.
Very good presentation.
Best regards Siegfried

Now this is living!!!! Beautiful surroundings and a great book!! I love the pov and the colors and detail are very good. TFS

Haha, who am I kidding! I can't stay away that long!!
Great observation Carol. Love the way they both have their legs crossed the same. What a great spot to recline and enjoy a book. You're right - the llammas are a great addition. And this is an interesting frame - someday maybe you can explain how you do this .. but not now:) You've got more important things to do!!
About 36 hours now? Exciting!! Happy sailing my friend!
Adios amigo

hi Carol

Oh how I would also like to lie down here and enjoy the view of natural landscape with the animals adding a nice touch to the green. Good depth of showing the couple reading at FG while the animals grazing at the BG.

tfs, bill

Bonjour Carol
L'image du berger que je m'était faite en prend un coup!!
À quand le gardien de troupeau à l'ordinateur?!!
Bucolique à souhait et d'une disposition admirable dans le cadre.


I love the concept and beauty of the photo, but something about their legs being crossed the same way strikes me as a bit staged. I'd prefer their legs to be in different poses so that the pose seems less... well, posed.


Bonjour Carol.

C'est vraiment une belle capture que cette scène. J'aime beaucoup la similitude de position des ceux lecteurs. On dirait presque qu'ils ont pris cette pose pour toi. ;-)


Bonjour Carol

Je viens voir ta galerie ( impressionnante, tu voyages beaucoup).
Et je m'arrête sur celle-ci, le pov est excellent.
Tu as su saisir ce moment de zenitude à l'instant I carrément insolite.
Le must : qu'ils tournent la page de leur livre en même temps ... lol.
Excellente photo.
Bon week end
