We definately have some serious talent on this forum. Some awesome photos, especially the tortoise Madach. A great little' moment' nicely captured. I''ve only been using digital this year so most of my favourites are on slides, but then I'm headed to Kruger this week end so will post an amazing shot soon :)

In the meantime here's my favourite from the last trip.

Lovely pics in this thread...wow I've had a look at my first effort in Kruger with digital....some big disappointments with the setting at sun white balance and under exposure of .7 stop...still came out a bit washed out but I will keep the good washed out ones in the hope of fixing them when I learn to do this digitally in photo shop or NX Capture...still to be bought. Some of my shots on the other hand came out stunning on semi cloudy days so I now really want to get some pics on the forum so bear with me as I try later this week.

With Adobe Lightroom you can correct that Peter. If you shot RAW that is. AL is still a free download at the moment.

Please try to keep it to a few photo's people! Not 10 in a post but three or four max. It's supposed to be your favourite photo.

Keep the poor people on dial-up in mind....
