Still trying to decide whether or not this is a keeper. I don't know about the grass in the foreground. The contrast is deliberately low to keep the subtle tone variations. What do you think?

PLEASE don't change a thing. A definate keeper for sure! You have several types of landscape in the one photo and shows the rest of us another side of Africa.

Very stunning! My oldest sister and her husband are fortunate enough to be visiting for the second time. I can't wait for her to come back with another 300 photos!!

Beautiful shot,

Rose

hmm... i dont particularly care for the weeds in the foreground.. i wish that rock in front of them was the foreground, and placed right where it is.. and from there the rolling landscape would flow to the right from it.. the weeds just detract from the form and addnothing imo.. would it be possible to shoot right in front of the weeds so you still get that rock and then the hillside?

I sort of agree with this: I like the idea of the weeds being there, but they look a little harshly lit, or maybe it's just the kind of weeds that makes them look that way :lol:

Beautiful shot. The even tones in the rolling hills really have a relaxed feel to them and beg you to examine them more closely. I think the color works well with the horizon. The weeds in front are somewhat of a distraction in that they draw away from the rest in two ways 1) the harshness of the lines 2) the color.

I am kind'a picking nits here though since it really is a nice shot.

Good news for me - I'm going to the spot again in two weeks - hopefully I'll get some great shots. I've posted similar shots to this without the weeds in the foreground over here:
