Africa chapter 2 (imgs)

Dear guys,

I'm embarassed by all of your nice comments on my previous set, and I could't thank all of you beacuse the thread reached the maximum of 150 replies allowed, so sorry if I couldn't reply to all of you.
As kindly requested I'm posting an other series....

Still not enough

I was gonna answer to your first thread, but it was already 150 messages. Anyway, I believe you were wrong saying it was enough for the day. It was clearly not, and it is still not enough yet if you have something more to show.

Really gorgeous pictures you have here. I hope I can go to Africa at some point in my life (I've wanted to go for long time), but I also hope I can get 1% of what you've got in your pictures. With that, I'd be more than happy.

Congratulations,
Dioni

Alex, this chapter is as awesome as ...

the previous one. I love the degree of saturation you choose on the tritoned gnu picture. On NG TV channel, I’ve seen the dramatic moments of gnu’s caught by ferocious crocodiles while crossing the river. Shall we wait for one of such images in chapter 3?

Other images are stunning as well!

Great shots!

Although of course they would have been much better if you had used a Canon!

Incredible..or in Italian: MITICO!

Congratulations! Sono delle immagini davvero belle..da mozzare il fiato. Ottima la composizione, la scelta della saturazione il post-processing in PS. Davvero molto belle.
I hope to be able to shoot like you.
Thanks to share with us

Teasing again? :)

I've visited your gallery and bookmarked it.

Can you please tell us the short story of post processing? First time I thought of getting D100 (I use D70 now)

I was about to comment on your first series, but the maximum of 150 posts was already reached. Anyway, both the first and this series is stunning. Among the best photography I ever seen on DPReview.

WOW! Question:

EXCELLENT photos - those are some of the best photos I have ever seen on this forum! And they have been taken with the D100!

While I realize that probably most of this excellence lies in the taking of the photos, I wonder if you would share a broad outline of your post processing technique? Did you spend much time on PP for these images?

Best regards,

Re: Africa chapter 2 - Velvia Vision

Hi Alex,

Please let us know how much you attribute the beaut colour and contrast
to Fred Miranda's Velvia Vision plugin?

I read you used a low setting (1) but still it must have boosted the colours
etc. to enhance from reality.

Lovely work.
Ciao, Rudi

How about a link to your website?

I'd like to see what you get up to in future!

Congrats again on great shots - I'm surprised you didn't end up as dessert for one of those lions - it looked at though you were a bit close!
