mononk: Interesting indeed. But may I suggest you post an identical article with examples from places not so exotic as Iceland and Africa? I.e. NY City, Paris, London, Rio... The average Jo will more likely visit these places a few times in his life and will try his luck in finding a new point of view. Many thsnks.
For landscapes, imo, location is extremely important. And more often than not, one has to travel a little bit to get a great shot. You can be the best photographer in the world but if your subject is blah, you will have a great image of something boring. Sure, anyone can find things to photograph near by but if you're looking for something like Antelope Canyon, for instance, and you live in the northeast... there's not much you can do. Also, it is possible to travel to places like Iceland and Alaska on a budget, I did, and it was great.
That's kinda cool!
Horshack: If I'm ever lucky enough to be in Iceland I'll be out taking landscapes every day even if the forecast called for earth-destroying meteors :)
recently tried that but there's not much you can see when it's snowing with hurricane-level wind speeds, believe me :)
cantanima bis: I've heard that Iceland is one of those places where if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes.
until it gets much much worse!
Great deal of talent in this one, well done!
HELP! What kind of bag for LSST for my safari trip???
Quite a few animals in the "Things" category :\
yesint: #7 looks like an absolute winner for me. Just can't understand why #1 and #3 are so special.
I'd definitely take 7 over 1.
Nicely done. Way better than 3rd.
