Oh, this one was definitely worth the work. Yes, it was!
Lovely photo that might do well as a monochrome, also. Waterfalls are indeed tricky. I generally underexpose them by at least two stops from the exposure recommended by the camera.
A beautiful leaf butterfly with a great contrasting background.
Beautiful juxtaposition of the zebra's head on the striped background.
Absolutely lovely pair of storks. Wonderful depth of field, great background, and nice color. Very sharp.
Hmm. I commented on this photo before, but somehow it seems to be lost. Now perhaps it will show up twice.
Anyway, beautiful shot of one of our favorite spots. The highlights and deep shadows give a real sense of depth to the picture.
Great background, composition and lighting. Really, an outstanding photo.
He is much more agile than I am! A very nice depiction of the climbing abilities of this bug.
I love the black background and the crisp lighting -- the plant almost seems to glow.
The color and composition are beautiful. I like the warm color balance, the depth of field and the background. Those red eyes really make the shot.
