I saw at least 3 photos of Chile today in TE. Just a way of remembering the country which is in mourning with the earthquake hit them once again.
I was in San Pedro Atacama, November 2007 when a 7.7 earthquake hit northern part of Chile, with Antofagasta as the epic center. 100km away from where I was having my afternoon nap inside my little tiny room when suddenly transform to a giant cradle that rocking. The owner of the guest house was so calm and told us to stay where we are ( at the garden ) when we watched the whole room and trees moving sideways.
The photo taken in San Pedro Atacama one day before the earthquake. I had no idea what I was doing. I dropped my camera and accidentally got a weird picture with me in it. So I took another one and I kind like it.
I increased the exposure from previous post following Waylim's advice. Couldn't make it brighter without burning my photo :-)

I really like the colors in this photo. I like how you're shadow adds a point of interest between the deep blue and deep red. Nice photo and a nice tribute.

I like that self portrait with almost nothing in the background. The only drowback is the cropping. In my opinion it needs more at the bottom, and does not need that much sky

how much have I to attend for a new image? :-))
This is absolutely superb, the composition is perfect, what a landscape, the shadow in FG give a very great effect to your splendid photo.

Wonderful picture. Magic atmosphere !
Just 3 comments ! Incredible. People are no longer able to distinguish among art and trivial documentation.
