    Lovely, Rafa. I think you should be able to "edit" your pictures as well.

    Good Rafa-esque pics.

    Prefer 1,3,5,7.

    2 and 4 are too close for my liking and 7 is more 'interactive' than 6.
    but like Vivek I think if you are old enough to 'develop' your snaps you are old enough to edit them.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    p.s. What a great location.

    Realistically it is nice to have input that affirms our instincts...from those we value and trust.

    Wonderful, exotic and so profoundly Brasileirao.....well done.

    I think Rafa is much better than getting stuck with a mutual appreciation society.

    Thansk for the kind words, guys.
    These were chosen from many other, but itīs nice to to take advantage from the forumīs experience and understand different points of wiew of why one is better than the other (when people care to elaborate)...I also have to confess that sometimes Iīm just lazy and really want to share the pictures fast hahaha....but donīt worry, I wonīt post 10 similar pictures for you guys to choose from

    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?


    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, Iīm not the guy feeding it...Iīm the silly chump looking in awe)

    Thanks, my friend.
    Iīm particularly fond of this photograph. While I was taking it I was thinking "This could be a poster for a movie...or an ad at the very least"

    Re: Manaus - Amazon

    That is exactly what I was alluding to earlier, Rafa! You would know that you have a picture even before you have actually tripped the camera trigger! The major part of the editing is already done! Some later trimmings may come because of technical reasons...

    Rafa, words cannot convey my admiration. This is beyond photography, it is teleportation. Beam me up, please!
