[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Crocdile River, named that way for its abundance of crocdiles is the border for the southern part of the Kruger National Park. The bridge that leeds into the park makes a good vantage point for visitors, if not chased away by traffic officers, to watch crocs swim by, this particular day we were scanning the river to see if we could not see interesting stuff, when i saw these clouds and the sunset, and when i looked around there was so many photo oppertunisties that i shot a 512kb card full this was one of the nice ones....

Hi Quinten,
picture is full of atmosphere which is really nice. Well processed also which gives a nice effect.
Did you use a polarisation filter?
Regards, JAcob

Hello Quinten,
This landscape is wonderful and you caught it well. Powerful colors and clouds also.
The "+++" : composition, subject, POV, sharpness, colors, light,exposure...
The "-" : I wasn't with you there :-))
Congratulations and TFS.

Hi Quinten,
Did you use some filter?
The result is very impressive!
The high contrast of this image is excellent.
I like so much the gorgeous clouds formations, the bright sun shining at the back, and the vivid green from trees at the ground.
The composition made is very good.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Superbe lumiere capturée. Salut

Hello Quinten,
This is an impressive landscape with great colors, composition, exposure and amazing clouds. You notes are very interesting too. I guess that I wouldn’t be tempted to swim in this river :) This is superb with great mood! Well done and TFS,

hi Quienten, very nice shot , wonderful landscape woth nice dark coloures.

Hi Quinten,

Very dramatic shot, the colours and the contrast between the elements are amazing, what a wonderful spot to be for such a great sunset!!

The lighting is brilliant and the contrast between the bright orange band and the clouds is what makes this shot really work.

Good work,


Hi Quintin,
It looks like I missed an awesome photo. This is just marvelous. Again that sky is superb, with such great texture in the clouds and such an intens color of the setting sun. WOnderful work on the exposure, keeping great details in the landscape and sky. I really like the way you used the hill to cover the bright sun.

This is a dramatic image Quinten. I love the composition with the river meandering into the distance. The sun also draws the eye back. The photo feels a little over enhance to me on my monitor. It seems a little too saturated and some of the darks are clipped but that could be a platform issue. I use a Mac which generally makes PC images look lighter so I don't know.

This is a MAGNIFICIENT image.
