[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the highlights of Madagascar.
All travellers come in this magic place to wait the sunset and to make pictures.
Few kilometres is easy to reach this place coming to Morondava after the trip on the Tsiribihina river and Tsingy.

Hi Aldo

This is a truely remarcable photo!
I really love the POV here and how everything appears to be simply huge (not that they aren.y in real life, but your angle really helps).
The lighting here is also terrific and it makes all the colors so saturated and lovely.
The DOF is excellent and the overall composition is fantastic.
Nice to see that person there in the corner - it gives a great idea of the size of everything :)

Cheers and TFS

Hi Aldo,
a spectacular photo of these magnificent trees. These baobabs have a very special aspect, a very good photo.

This looks like something out of a science fiction film. Great light, excellent POV and fantastic composition



I can see why this is a favorite tourist destination. It is truly remarkable. The angle of the light is wonderful, as is the pov you chose for recording it.

A very nice composition of these baobabs, Aldo.
You have chosen a good perspective that shows the strange shape and huge size of these unusual trees.
The inclusion of the photographer is a good move as it gives us an idea of the scale.
The light of the sunset is beautiful and well caught.
TFS. : )

What a wonderful angle and composition for these trees. The person really helps for scale which is very needed in this picture. The evening light really works well as well.

Hi Aldo,

Ciao Aldo,

stiamo pensando ad un viaggio in Madagascar e, esplorando TN per ammirare qualche scatto, ho scoperto la tua bella galleria. Splendida questa. Imponenti i baobab, la presenza umana dà un ottimo effetto di scala.



amazing! TFS Ori
