    Wow fascinating pictures! Do you have any pictures of their homesteads? Rural communities fascinate me

    Really nice portraits! To help you choosing: I don't like the second (nose too much out of focus), the fourth (framing) and the sixth (framing) in direct comparison to their 'similar' counterparts.

    Btw, why did I think of a big online store when I read the title? God, am I really such a trained consumer? :O

    8 - This was a very stunning thing to witness. You could actually see a mass of tropical storm drop down in a very specific place...like in the cartoons.

    9 - With or without the boat?
    [​IMG]

    10 - This river is called Rio Negro (the Dark River). You cannot see ANYTHING bellow the surface.

    11 - One of my dreams came true. I dove with a wild amazon river dolphin (btw, I´m not the guy feeding it...I´m the silly chump looking in awe)

    :eek: Second set is just awesome!!!

    Regarding #8 and 9, personally I prefer it WITH the boat, since it gives the viewer the ability to comprehend the size of the sky and sea ;)

    Super series. It must have been an amazing trip. PP is a little different but for me in a good way for that series.
