[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After a few hundred meters from the start of the Gamkaskloof Pass one realizes there is now no turning back as the road gets even more narrow and the bends tighter. A U turn is impossible with the cliff on the one side and the sheer drop on the other. The cold beers at the end were really very welcome.

Sorry Jonathan, but I can't see the perspective you're trying to portray here.

I've had to look at the shot for several minutes to fathom out the detail, shadows, distance and depth.
The whole image is truly flat, simply 1D, without any real definition, contrast or vibrancy and has no real awe to capture the imagination.

I know this was taken way back in '07 on a 35mm film plane camera, but in their day, the FujiChrome film series were arguably the best 35mm films to use, and the Nikon 801 was a real competitor.

Maybe the scanning has destroyed the shot here, bur for me, I find it hard to see the beauty you're trying to show. Sorry.

Hello Erwin,
For some critics, this is not the place to show beautiful places and best colors, this is a place to share good, bad, ugly or not, this is to learn and teach, you wanna something more exciting? Go to other web sites, there are tons of them, even this photographer has tons of beautiful photos, you could just pick one and comment.
Now to this image, I know what you mean , you gave us the moment you experienced in this click.
Thanks for sharing!
Nelson
