A visit to Uganda is not complete until you have been on a safari in my opinion.
Uganda can`t compete with South Africa, Tanzania or Botswana with number of animals but on the other hand you have the national parks almost for yourself( we were only 3 cars during my visit)
Many of us remember Uganda as a unstable country with a brutal dictator, torture and abuses. Today most parts of Uganda is safe for tourists and i can highly recommend this beautiful country with warm and friendly people.
This shot is quite unsharp because of the bumpy roads but i decided to post i anyway.

nice note, good to know that this country is more sage nowadays. I like your point of view with the safari car. I don`t see any problem with the sharpness. But I think that using a polarizer and adding more contrast you could have a more life photo. I made a workshop for you showing this, hope you like it.

nice to visit someone these counties of the middle-South Africa.But the political conditions must to are a bit curious and to stay someone there dangerous.
The view of the car as taking place in the safari with the tourists in it must be a great experience.

En mycket enkel men synnerligen välkomponerad bild. De två reservdäcken fungerar som en effektförhöjare och den ensamma palmen är mycket välplacerad. En vacker och dessutom intressant bild.

Så dålig är ju inte skärpan. Den duger bra för mig :-). Men framför allt är detta en enormt stilren bild, väldigt snyggt komponerad. Få element, snyggt placerade, god balans, snygga färger. Helt enkel alldeles utmärkt.

Few elements, the car and the tree, are the main subjects in this very attractive image.
I think that the quality it isn't so bad!
Congratulations and TFS.

A defender Range Rover with "dome" to photograph.
The beautiful Africa and environmental situations.
Certainly the political instability, religious intransigence. The uncertainty on this property do not attract mass tourism.
I personally would take the plane today so I love a pie noire.
Thank you for the beautiful gallery and sharing

I have loved this picture from the first time I viewed it. Yes, you`re right, most of us think of Idi Amin and his regime while thinking of Uganda. I like the way you have composed the shot with a single car and a single palm. The fact that the car isn`t totally in focus can also be interpreted as a nice way to show motion and then becombes a nice addition to the scene. The red/brown colour of the road adds a fine contrast to the dominating green and blue. Wonderful - keep on shooting:) TFS. Have a nice week.
Best regards, Erling

Excellent composition with the palm, lovely African colors. The wheels look like the eyes of jeep. Very interesting and useful note!

this is quite a characteristic and minimalistic view :)
I don't mind its being a bit unsharp: what's more important is the subject of the photo.
I can only dream of going on a safari in Africa... sometimes I wish I were a man! LOL thus it would be much safer to travel.
meanwhile I can only admire photos taken by others and I have to choose the safest places for travelling as I always travel alone and can rely only on myself!
but maybe... in the future... we never know?? :)
