Back from a scintillating week in the Masai Mara ecosystem (Kenya). Must admit the amazing wildlife sightings kept me too busy for much landscape shooting, but I do have a few that I've yet to download.
For now, here's a photo taken with my iPhone 5 (HDR function on) and processed a bit further in Photoshop. The sheer number of wildebeest we saw (not in this photo) is just impossible to convey with any camera equipment known to man.

Hi Morkel, a very nice smartphone capture. Love the sky and the placement of the trees within the comp. I have downloaded a few HDR apps for my Samsung but have never really liked the effect. The HDR from the iphone 5 looks very nice.
Seems fitting to reply to a smartphone image thread via a smartphone :)....besides my internet at home is currently out of commission for what may be another 48 hours.

Very nice for a phone photo Morkel!
The FG has a nice 3d quality to it.

Great shot. I like the composition. It's great to have some Zebras in the picture.
I might darken the sky a bit for a more dramatic look.
