Hi Nelson, what a beautiful luscious view, great PoV, though for my taste, I would have raised the lower crop to take out the bottom RH group of leaves, this would have made the shot more balanced IMHO. It gives me the feeling of a green paradise in a jungle wilderness. Thanks for sharing, Regards Tim
I haven't critiqued a photo from you in a long time....don't ask me why.
The view with the palmtrees across the river are wonderful. The use of the branches are perfect. Just a pitty that the sky is OE.
I have been here.It is truely a beautiful place. Well, the whole of Angola is. Saw a baby crocodile here; a friend tried to catch it.
In the tropics it is hard to control the light entering the camera. The sky does not seem to be blue; and,normally
it is a rich blue. However, this is a great capture.
The best to you, Mario.

Sorry I'm a bit late with this update, but the rat-race really had me in a strangle hold.
This is a lovely capture of a very tranquil scene. Something I could do with right now, sitting on a canvas deck chair with something cool in my hand while listening to the pleasant sounds of nature.
I like the composition as you utilised the trees in the foreground to frame the shot while it also gives some scale and perspective. Being after 6pm you probably had to push the light a bit to get the scene to display properly, but that has cost you somewhat in the sky that came out a little bright. Anyway, the colours are well saturated and the details are well defined.
Good work and TFS.
Ciao Nelson, fascinating landscape, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
