Sunset through the « Window » of Isalo
The fish eye’s distortion reduced under Capture NX2
Top and lower parts of the photo cropped in order to get a panoramic effect and, last but not least, to remove the heads of people sitting in front of me !

Hallo Albert,
Normaal vind ik foto's waar de zon opstaat maar niks.
Deze vind ik echter mooi omwille van het feit dat de zon er tamelijk subtiel opstaat en ook en vooral omdat de voorgrond en de indrukwekkende rotsformaties goed 'belicht' zijn. Het panoramaformaat is zeer goed wat betreft compositie.
Mooi en sfeervol!

This is really nicely done Albert. You managed a wonderful solar flare/star! The sharpness is good as are the details in the shadows. Nice work.

Bonjour Albert,
belle photo, j'ai fait quasiment la même en mars dernier. J'ai beaucoup aimé cet endroit. J'ai même trouvé trois variétés d'orchidée terrestres autour de la fenêtre;-)
Merci pour la photo

Hello albert,
An interesting and original way to capture a sunset: through a hole in a natural rock formation! I like the way the lens has captured the sun to show the 'rays' of sunlight.
TFS this fine contribution,

Hello ALbert,
What a marvellous moment you've caught here!!
I love the shape of the rocks and the sun just disappearing in the 'window' leaving its beautiful rays on the rock. A lovely sky beyond and a very fine composition.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

salut Albert

WOW ! superbe effet du rayon de soleil au coucher,
tu ne pouvait trouver meilleur moment pour faire l'image,
j'aime le cadrage panoramique que tu as fait,
et si tu n'aurais pas dit que tu as aussi croppé
pour enlver les têtes de gens devant toi, j'aurais cru que
(l'image donne cette impression) tu étais seul là-bas,

Bonjour Albert! C'est une photo fantastique, c'est tellement beau que ça semble irréel! Ça me fait beaucoup penser aux superbes images de Stanley Kubrick dans '2001 A Sapce Odyssey'! C'est vraiment une image unique, bravo!

Hi Albert.
Very nice work. I am impressed so much. I have not wide angle lens (except not so wide on Minolta 17-35 mm zoom) and naturally have not such wonderful landscape picture. I like your note and applied technique. It is so useful. Pictured subject is great as well as selected POV. You have used sunlight very well at your composition and exposure of the image is superb. I also like perfect sharpness of the image, nice cropping and wonderful colours. Well done and TFS.
P.S. I am very pleased with your decision to mark me as favorite TN member. It is great honor for me. Thanks a lot for kindness.

Bonjour Albert,
Wow, c'est superbe cette prise avec cette formation rocheuse originale et une grand maitrise de l'exposition. Le tout ressemble à une carte postale! Bien vu et félicitations!

Hallo Albert
You have been on the right place at the right time to have been able to capture such a special scene. It is really lovely. I admire the timing here, capturing the sunlight just at the right spot. The colours and view are really wonderful. Great sharpness and exposure. A lovely presentation. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Hi Albert,
What a very impressive and beautiful photo. I love the position of the sun and it rays peaking ove the rock. The colors and details in the photo are very beautiful. I like how you still got so much detail on this side of the rock while the sun was shining in the camera. Did you render this in your post processing? The few clouds add a lot to the sky. Its a good idea to correct the lens distortion, but it did cause you to loose sharpness and details on both sides. Still the feel to the photo is awesome.
