Great shots SW. Out of interest, how'd you take the shot with the black background?

I haven't been on the forum for quite a while but we just decided to make another Kruger visit (our 3rd) in 2011. It is a magical place. Hope to spend a lot more time on this great website.

Thanks! :thumbs_up:

The photo was shot at about 10 in the morning, not exactly golden hour, but still good side lighting. The area around him was quite a bit in the shade and having so much dark around a white subject, it is easy to over expose and lose detail in your whites. So, I under exposed the shot and the EXIF data looks like this:

ISO: 400
Aperture F/8
Shutter Speed: 1/2000
EV: -0.7

So basically it's the water around him that's in the shade that shows up dark and I under-exposed the shot. :thumbs_up:

Nice, Bennievis - captures the feel I know of that dam. :dance: :dance:

Switchback, what fantastic photos!! :clap: :clap: :clap: They're all great, but I especially love the (is it a) swan - just white with the ordered reflection on a black background!

What a pleasurable hour I've just spent (very slow connection) feasting on these stunning photo's! A wonderful theme, and I think the water contributes to the sense of tranquility conveyed by so many of these. Thanks to all you very VERY talented photographers.
