Well I grabbed a few "snaps" while in South Africa. I wasn't there long, and our company urged us not to flaunt anything of any value, so I left everything of value in the hotel including my precious camera. But while we were coming, I did manage a few pictures of the port.

When I looked back at the pictures, they appeared flat. I bumped to what I liked and came up with this.

But of course I dug deeper, but perhaps TOO deep. Did I overcook this image? I like it, but I also feel I may have went overboard. What are your opinions?

haha

Well I liked the colors in the mountain range, but I think the boats were a little hot.
So I kept the mountain (hot) and kept the boats (cold).

Still too much?

The second pic is way overcooked!:eek: Nothing like the colours of the Cape. I think that the main reason that the original looked flat was the time of day and the light.

I have! Eat you heart out infamous20V! :lol:


Cheers, Helen

Thanks guys, I will keep the last pic on file then ;)

I had some friends take some cable car to the top (not climbing, I know) but they said it was just an amazing view. I don't think they yelled either :(

I climbed Fuji way back, and it was awesome. I personal accomplishment. Check it out if you ever have time. Just be sure to do the climb in the summer. Even in the summer, the top was FREEZING!!!!
