I you climb Kili via Machame route you can not miss Shira plateau (3800m). To my mind this is one of the most beautiful places in the area.

The hazy background creates a magical sense of depth. The white cloud is a little off the brown colour balance here, but it balances the composition with the tree,

Beautiful. I love the Sepia tones. Was it originally taken in B&W?
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful photo. The tones are wonderful and the sense of magic is in the air.
Only one minor small thing the cloud almost seems too white to be here, I'm not too certain if that makes sense but it just appears to be too white.

You really captured a wonderful atmosphere here, Sergey. The silhouette of the trees in the foreground is very beautiful, and contrast nicely with the lighter cloud. Good choice of frame. Well done.

Wooow Sergey...this is a very beautiful place! This could easily be a postcard although (sorry to repeat everyone else) that bright cloud is a bit distracting from the mountain since that is what you speak of in your note. Take care

I was in Tanzania in January, but alas I did not have the time to climb Kili. now you made me regret it even more! What a grand scene. The sepia works really well for you and the compo is classic.
The postproccessing is very nice. I'm curious as to how you did it.

Hi Sergey !
This is a very beautiful sepia. The light is quite impressive. The one which is passing through clouds gives a very special and diffuse luminosity to the scene. I like it very much.
Congratulation for it !

Great atmosphere and mood here!
The brown toning is a nice choice!
Great silhouettes and I like the dramatic contrast with the black and brown against the white cloud.

Nice composition and I think that the sepia mode is a good choice. I like the light you have rendered here.
It works perfeclty.

I like this cloudy and dark mood very much. The silhouette of the tree is greatly located on a strong node. The subtle different shades of sepia enhances the perspective very well ! Great shot !

one of the better africa pictures here. I can almost smell the air.

je retiens donc la voie Machame pour mon future voyage sur le Kili !

Stunning picture! I really love your work!! The colours are great and so is the vibe let out by this image!
RegisMinot (1543) 2005-05-14 2:35
It's a great picture. I guess you obtained the colour by switching a sepia option on your camera or through your photo editor ? There is nothing to say about the technique itself. What is great here is the composition and the artistic sense.
