    natural beauties over there. Please drop by the IP address below if

  2. Great images Ronald. I felt I was right by your elbow all the way there
    You are very fortunate to have the skill to take such pictures, and I
    consider myself fortunate in having seen them.

    Congratulations on some *stunning* landscape shots.

    Your work is worthy of publication. These shots would surely be in
    great demand for calendars. Your eight favourites plus four more
    would make a superb calendar.

    I work for a UK calendar publisher who (alas) accepts only shots of UK
    subjects but you should contact calendar publishers in Canada and the
    USA, if you haven't already done so.

  7. Ronald,
    Beautiful images!!!

    I'm confused by the lighting in your image:
    Sitting Sun and Rising Moon, Waterfowl Lake, Banff National Park # 98-08-F

    The light on the moon and mountain tops says the sun is to
    the right, but the sky and clouds are brightest on the left
    implying the sun is near the left edge of the image.
    Is this a polarizer effect or what???

    Thanks for your kind words. You are right, the setting sun was to
    the right. However, I used a polarizer on my Nikkor 17-35 mm/2.8 lens
    and the lens axis was in such a direction which has the maxium
    poarization effect. So, the sky and clouds at left edge look much
    brighter than those at the right edge. I wish I had a ND 0.6 filter with
    soft edge in hand, but I did not bring it with me. You have good eyes.

    Awesome, simply superb.Would you consider giving less mortals like me a
    crash course on photography? :)

    Stunning images Ronald,

    I particularly liked the Fiji ones, as it appears that you went to nearly
    exactly the same places I did in May this year...not only that, the same
    people are in it, including the same villagers in the ceremony, I
    unfortunately did not get any photos, as I didnt have my ew camera at that
    stage and all I had was a P & S canon, which did an ok job except I left it
    on the plane and some turkey decided to wipe the images and put his own
    collection of pics of himself on it.

    BTW did you go on one of the cruises? Blue Lagoon maybe?
