Friends, I was invited on a trip to a near-the-city volcano today which is 4794 meters high (15.728 feet) and we saw a most amazing sunset.

I wanted to share some of the photos, as always, critique and comments are always welcome and expected :) :

Two more or less traditional pictures:

One that was described by as friend as 'lacking the cliche sentiment phrase on top of the card' :) :

One from the crater's mouth (a lot earlier than the previous ones):

And a couple a little more experimental. Most people are not too fond of the pole on the first one, but I'm not so sure I dislike it. They were taken at almost pitch darkness, it was hard to know what was going to result from the 2 and 4 minute exposures:

Yeah, Rafa, these are all really nice. It was good that you could get out to places with great scenery, but it is clear that you really knew how to take advantage of the chances that were out there. I agree with you about the pole/tree in the picture looking down into the valley. Although it seems to be in the way, it gives you foreground, which is good in shots like that. Without it it would still be a nice shot, but a rather generic one that (IMO) we would pass over quite quickly. The first is definitely my favorite, but I like them all. Wonderful colors. Your framing additions are nice, too.

I only hope that I can take pictures that look like this when I get my T2i. Awesome shots!

Thanks a lot friends for the words and comments!

When I first submitted a photo to this section I started browsing the treads and almost every thread I stumbled upon had a photo I knew I could not have made with my skills! :( With these I feel I am a bit closer but still very far from the ones pictured in this section of the forum.

Its great to have you guys as 'classmates' on this learning journey. It makes for a much more fun ride to be able to share and discuss the pictures with you fellow T2i owners.

Thanks again,
Rafa.

Have you seen the

Thanks Jason!

Yes, it was a truly awesome day, we were extremely lucky to see the volcano without a single cloud, to be then completely surrounded by fog / mist / clouds (I had never had camera condensation issues before, it was quite a surprise to see the UV filter completely fogged!), we saw small hawks, wild rabbits, and it bid us farewell with that amazing sunset.

An exceptional experience! Thanks folks for all the comments,
Rafa.
