This looks good Vivaldo. Nice light and good blending. I would consider a slight CW rotation as I know it's hard to get a "level" with this kind of comp but the LHS seems to be sloped on the horizon?

Yes Vivaldo, this is a very pleasing image to look at. You made the 14-24 "sing". I agree you could rotate a little to make the "flats" on the left look level. Who knows if they actually are level?! My eye is drawn to the rock which exits stage bottom-right. I would have tried to get the whole rock to eliminate it all together in the in-camera crop.

Hi Vivaldo,

Lovely scene and well composed...agree on the rotation. Nice work with the blending as well!

Thanks of comments and suggestions. Will have to relook at rotation but agree with comments it does look slightly out :S3:

Hi Vivaldo - nicely done and the plant really adds to this. Rotation issue already covered.

Hi Vivaldo, this is very nicely done. I might would add a tad more contrast or sharpening to the clouds. That is just me!
Have a great day

Nice one Vivaldo. If it were mine, I would add more punch to the sky, seems ever so slightly flat. What a spectacular landscape the Richtersveld is!
