Sigma-Foveon: Intimate Places

Challenge #5 in the Insights series. Hosted by SigmaChrome.
Challenge has finished
Show us your best 'Intimate Places' photographs taken with a camera that uses a Foveon sensor. The challenge is to engage the viewer in your reasonably tight composition; make them feel emersed in the mood of your picture. Framing is everything! It could be a garden, a pond, a river, wild flowers, mushrooms or an isolated gully in the forest, park, garden or desert -- anywhere that is, or looks, 'intimate'. :: For those who aren’t technically minded about these matters: Most digital cameras use a Bayer sensor, which captures red, green and blue light (RGB) using a Colour Filter Array -- one colour at each photosite. The Foveon sensor captures RGB at each and every photosite. This is a very different way of capturing an image that produces pictures with great colour depth and sharpness.

2nd place
Lakatnik is a train station named after village nearby. It's famous with it's location. Very steep and sharp edged rocks soaring 300+ meters above the village and the train station. Dramatic relief carved with caves. One of the caves has and underground stream, passing trough the cave until it exit down below, forming beautiful cascade of mini waterfalls. Autumn there is very beautiful, full of falling leaves and color!
