Continuing, this time with some colour ones. The first photo is a 10 minute exposure in Fogo, pre-dawn.

Regards.

Nr 3 in monochrome would be an absolute winner! The circular effect of standing there is immediately obvious, but it also depicts that more subtle idea that nature is neither chaos, nor structure...

Good capture!

I like the shape of the first two.  Good to see that you get outside in this busy world!  Beautiful landscape.

Great shots Paulo! I am including link to my slides from 30 years ago. I lost them when I threw out an old computer and later realized my CD with the images was on the tray!! The air is so clean I never once saw a sunset or sunrise like yours.

Good capture!

And if you perhaps added a judicious crop to the bottom of the shot, just to emphasize that circular shape and the spokes of the palm, it would be a real stunner  ;)

Absolutely! Unless you've cropped, you're not finished.

John, those slides are great. You should contact the local government and see if they want a copy for their historical records.

As for the others that suggesting cropping, hmmm, not sure... I like the way the trunk leads into the scene.

I like the colour in #1, and the rest are engaging.

Hi Paulo, I suspect you thought I was agreeing that a crop was necessary. Nothing, nothing could be farther from the truth.
