Sunrises and Sunsets in the Overberg

The Overberg region in the Western Cape, South Africa is known for it’s magnificent and sometimes unusual coloured (even saturated) golden hours. And I love the early hours photographing the never boring landscapes. Always a surprise. Most of the pictures did not need any post-processing (= in-camera settings); with a few I added a texture only when it did not (or hardly) influence the colours.

 

Photo Art or Photo-Software Skills?

Some people think it’s ‪#‎ART‬: a flower against a black background. For me it’s just skills but I know that if I add a nice story to it this image will increase in value. Just a thought on a Sunday morning.

(replaced the original garden background with black plus texture)
