Here's a shot of the Victoria falls taken by hanging out of the door of a helicopter. I think I may need to calibrate my monitor as this looks a bit over done on my laptop.

That's quite a view, and I'm sure it was a special experience. As far as being overdone, the only thing I see is what appears to be a bit too much contrast that blows out the water highlights and leaves areas of earth too dark.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll have another look at the processing.

It's the first time I've shot from a helicopter and with the movement and rotation, concepts such as portrait/landscape get a bit mixed up. It was a b*gger to try and find the right orientation for this shot. I have a few more which are equally confusing :confused:

So you're staying in the Zambia site of the Victoria Falls as everybody else?
Did you also walk to the Zimbabwe site as a day-trip?
Any problem getting into Zimbabwe to visit the Victoria Falls?

Thanks for the sharing!

That is something I'd love to do, complete with the Devil's Pool too.
