Hellshoogte Road

I have just got back from a trip to the Western Cape - perhaps this picture may illustrate why the call it "the fairest Cape".

I hope you like it it.

Lovely pastoral image.

On a technical side, I think vignetting might be too strong, creating "muddiness" in the upper parts of the sky.

I agree Slobodan - In my haste I forgot to do the "Lens Correction" - I did not add any vignetting to start with. Thanks.

That's really nice. It cries out for a really big print.

Absolutely gorgeous!
That road is full of spectacular vistas - another reason to start feeling homesick again!

I'm looking forward to my daughters wedding which will be celebrated in Stellenbosch in December. Your really nice great picture makes me much more impatient.

A really engaging image, I agree print size would really open this up to full enjoyment.
