    Celebration for 60 years old and one year on CiC.

    This May, I became 60 years old and I have completed one year in CiC.
    To celebrate these important events, I prepared two series of photos from a place that I like very much (the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon, on Rio de Janeiro) and I posted my self portrait.
    I'd be interested in your comments please. Best viewed full size.
    Antonio.

    Hi Antonio

    Congratulations on both milestones. Lovely set of images, that blue sky is just magic. I like the composition in image 2 the best. It has good sense of depth.

    Dave,
    Thank you for viewing and commenting.
    White clouds in the blue sky (photos # 1 and # 2) seemed to invite me to take those pictures of the beautiful scenery.

    Hi Antonio. Great photos. They would make great advertising for a travel brochure.

    The last image, however, needs lots of work. Your complexion looks very much like an Olympus camera. Perhaps some post processing would help.

    Antonio and Camera,

    Thanks for sharing your milestones with us. I think the members of CIC are going to bankrupt me, either in camera equipment or in travel expenses. I see so many beautiful pictures!

    I really like the close-up of the rock formation. Does it have a name?

    Very funny (LOL)! (If I can take a good self portrait, I will post in "People" section). This is the camera that I used before digital photography. It still works perfectly (I have three primes and two zooms), but now I prefer the digital world.

    Antonio.

    Photo #4 shows the "Morro dois irmãos" (Two brothers mountains). From the position the photo was taken, it is not easy to see there are two mountains (the one behind is higher).


    Photos #5 e #6 show the "Pedra da Gávea". Pedra da Gávea (literally Rock of the Topsail) is a monolith rising 842 meters above sea level at the highest point, located in Floresta da Tijuca in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro. It is the world's largest monolith on a coastline. You can obtain more informations on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedra_da_Gávea.

    Cheers,
    Antonio.

    Hi, Antônio. Very nice pictures of a beautiful place. I like the light and the soft treatment applied. Thanks for sharing. Well done! PS.: You might want to improve the last one, replacing the Olympus OM2 by a D5100 (just kidding!!).

    Abraço!

    Hi Antonio,

    I do find #1 has a bit too much distracting bright blocks on left for my taste, so as (the other) Dave says; #2 is best.

    I do like the series of ever greater detail of 3, 4, 5 and 6 though - England's rolling hills (especially where I am from in south) rarely have the vertical scale of these features. I am fascinated, from occasional holidays abroad and flying, with looking down on to a scene reminiscent of the perspective I had of my model railway.

    The series certainly makes me want to visit.

    #7 - neat ear-rings

    Cheers,

    Otavio,
    Thanks for viewing and for your encouraging words. I prefer a more natural look in my photos. In the case of over sharpening, there is a risk of appearing jpg artifacts, what is more common in the case of small sensors like superzoom cameras.

    Although I would like to have a D5100, I think that in this case the OM2 is better, because it is a classic camera with a retro look (this will happen with D5100 30 years from now).

    All the best,
    Antonio.

    I appreciate very much your commentaries. Thanks for viewing and commenting.
    Rio de Janeiro is a beautiful place to see and photograph.

    The picture of my avatar is one of the sharpest that I took with a digital camera and was taken with a budget model: the Kodak Z990.
    All the best,
    Antonio.
