Photographer's Note

I posted this photo first in 21/11/2005, and it was my post #10. The picture has 2.703 views, 90 points and was choosen by 2 members as a favorite. Its one of the few pictures taken with my old sony DSC-S60, a little camera snapshot of 4.0 megapixels. Why I decided to re-post it? Well, in the beggining of my TE's carrer, post processing was a big mistery for me, and I didnt know how to add a simple framing. So, this picture hadnt any pp to do the right corrections. Since that time, TE has been a nice school for me and the many posts, workshops and critiques made me a better usuary of the photoshop. So, since I consider this photo as one of my best pictures (post processed last year to have it in my home gallery as I am posting now), Ive decided to re-post it in its actual version to my TE gallery.
In the post processing, I did the corrections on the white balance, colour saturations, brightness & contrast and I also used the median filter to eliminate noise, everything to have it equalized and eliminate the oe. I have this new version in a copy enlarged to 30cm X 40cm and it is nice even in this size.

About the scenery:
This is a scene from Tamandu, a farm region in Southern of Brazil, nearby So Luiz do Purun. The Spring is a good season to watch and capture heavy waters coming fast and going on even faster. Surprisingly, this tempest didnt shower this cows, just turning around to pass away. I had the sun on my back, around 5pm, giving me colours on the foreground.
As soon as I saw it, I got out my car and run into the pastures to find this POV, leaving two fellows in the car without any single word. They found me crazy, but I am not! And you know! I am an amateur photographer like you and we are just waiting to take off the car to take a picture when we see anything like this. ;-D

Regards and thank you for your time visiting this re-post.
