[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
This is the identical same scene of the Shingwedzi River posted HERE. a la wide angle. Together, these two pictures illustrate the power of a zoom lens, and the visual effect created in choosing the different focal lengths. This was picture was taken with the 28 mm end of a 28-200 Tamron lens. I seldom take only one picture, and also not at the same focal length, if using a zoom lens in landscapes. Now, with digital where we do not pay for film, you can take a series of pictures at different focal length and at different exposures, a boon that was only for the rich not so long ago.

Nice shot!
Great colours and atmosphere.
I like it very much.

Well, in 28 mm it looks more impressive than 200 mm.
Very good picture and very beautifull place, the panoramic crop is very good.

Great shot Callie, the reflection is superb!
Nice colours and composition!

The photo is very calm and "quite", I like it.
Thank you for posting.
Well done.

Hi, Callie--

This is beautiful. The colors are exceptionally rich, and the calmness of the water provided for a great reflection. I especially like the little hint of blue below the horizon line, showing the river continuing out of view. Very nice.

Great shot Callie.
Another POv that yesterdays post, but same beautiful colours, composition and details. It's a great post.

Your macros looks very good, I have not seen any tests of this lens yet, but your photos looks good.
Congrats for your new lens,I know you be happy for this one.
How did you passed your MRS. ;-) huge bouquet of flowers ;-)

Hi Callie, this is great too, I don't know which I prefer. The blue of the water is very calming, and the composition is great here too. Well done.

Excelent view again Callie. Like the deep hues of blue. Well done on the composition and details.


Callie, Think I prefer this WA shot over the previous..More of this blue-blue water and more of the tree-line reflection in this one...TFS!!

Peaceful "zen" picture. I like it. Nice reflection, beautiful blue color. Well done Callie.

It will not be easy to "widen" my comment of yesterday. Two photos of the same scene taken from the same place but with different lenses. This one offers us more recession, the other one a link. I also like both, without preferences for the one or for the other one. But what I like beyond both photos it is the experiment which you make us live by such presentations. And you do the same with the Workshop.
Thanks Callie.

Thank you for sharing the different focal lengths here Callie. It makes sense because of the advances in technology to do what you say. Thanks for the good advice.

Hoi Callie,
Met de tweede foto via scan, maar het is er bijna niet aan te zien, prachtig beeld met de kleine wolk op het einde, misschien vind ik deze mooier dan gisteren.

Hallo Callie,

Ek hou meer van die 200mm se composition, maar die 28mm se beligting en kleur is weer beter, die groot vy moes miskien so bietjie meer links gewees het in die 28mm.

Goeie foto's.

Lovely rich colours and even more depth, makes me want to go back to the tropics!

Great African Landscape Callie. I like your WS - very informative. I think I like this shot more than your yester with 200mm. But both are excellent of course.

You made amazing and wonderful landscape!
I'm impressed from yesterday! It's just perfect!

Great shot Callie. I like this one even better than the first one. I like the tranquility of the scene. Well done. Perfect. :)

I love your landscapes they are so warm, great for the winter time.
Well done.

Joli travail, les couleurs, l'effet miroir, tout est bien

Intresting short series this Callie they are both good images of this beautiful river scene and show well the benifits of the different focal lenghts well, it is good to be able to compare the 2 images made at the same time . I prefer this one as it for me leads more naturally left to right and clear out of the image up the river, TFS

The colors are amazing. The large tree adding a nice anchor. Exceptional landscape Callie. I just love this shot. Well done.

breathtaking.. i enjoy looking at this photo very much. very calm..and peacefull.. the colors are superb!!!!
