Jump, the 1st photo I viewed reminded me of Keukenhof Gardens in Holland last spring. The tulips are at their peak right now at Keukenhof. Brings back wonderful memories.
2nd photo of the Cathedral or Church was wonderful with all the flowers and all the reconstruction going on. The roof is a piece or art! How beautiful. Year 1811 on the steeple.
The interior shot was really impressive. Probably a hand-held shot knowing you. Hands like a rock or a fireplug!
My son who is 32 years old takes slow time exposures hand-held which is wild! Looks like he used a tripod. He has a Canon G-7 with image stabilization. I wish I were so lucky as both of you are with hand-held success. I guess using a heavier DSR camera is the key.
The only way I can do it with a pocket camera is to cradle my elbows near my chest and to hold my breath. Looks weird, yet it does work.
The Waterfalls are wonderful. Where about in Croatia is this?
A gentleman that my wife works with suggested on a southern island of Croatia going inland with a guide. Is that where you were??
Fabulous country and a fabulous photo, Jump. Did you do a time study or slow the shutter down? Neat photo and fabulous terrain. A work of Art! To be sure. One of those "OH MY GOD" Photos. Nice!
It goes for the falls footbridge shot. Did you walk the footbridge!?
Would have been a great shot if you had survived!
You can see the spray coming on the next waterfall shot and smelling the grasses on the banks. WOW!
Now the next one by the footbridge is awesome!
Next: Small ledge and beautiful color of the water.
Next: Foliage and deep-water currents show. Nice!
Next: With that water flow, it's amazing those two brick houses are still there. Nice color and composition.
Next: Down-stream. OHHH!!!
Next: Walkway and water steps are nice. What is your shutter speed?
Next: Water, Water, And Water! Fabulous!
Next: Ahh, calm and relaxing. Nice! Glad I wasn't drowned back there.
Next: OH NO, more water!!
Next: Fabulous shot and a rainbow to boot! Johnnie on the spot at the right time. Nice sky clouds also. So much going on with this shot. NEAT!
Next: Nice waterfalls. Where is the rainbow?? Power Falls! You can almost feel it. And hear them.
Next: Hanging branches over water. Nice composition.
Next: Silver water and great composition.
Next: Croatia?s Landscape. Awesome!
Next: The old city? Nice Ironwork. Crop the man out.
Next: Historical Church? Nice photo and color. Composition is cut out of the sky. Nicely done.
Next: Wonderful soft color to that Church.
Next: A chapel in that church. This is where you shine. Great lighting and camera work. WOW!!! Next stop is the Sistine Chapel!
Next: Super wide angle. Nice action with the angles of them.
Next: Boating anyone? If no one noticed, great powerful angles to this shot. Nice!
Next: Castles by the sea and you can hear the waves on those huge rocks next to that huge fortress. Wonderful composition and lighting. Powerful shot. Shows the impressive structures and why they survived for so long. Seascape is impressive. Great color.
Next: Photo assignment: Photograph a seascape and a landscape together. Great seascape and landscape shot together here by Jump. Hard to do and well executed. Take note of this photo. Not easy to accomplish. Great eye for composition.
I feel like I am traveling with National Geographic and Smithsonian Magazine!!!
Next: A powerful Coastal fortress, a beautiful sea, a beautiful rock structure and a beautiful photo
Next: Now that is a Croatian Landscape and all the structures.
This is where I would have used Adobe Photoshop a little. I will send it back to you later and the results. Say if it is a misty day and you want to cut through that mist. How do you set your lens and camera settings? Same as a misty rainy day or foggy spring days in the mountains of Vermont? Use a special filter? I have no idea.
Page three of Jump?s trip to Croatia?
I for one cannot wait to see and view then.
Jump, I think these are some of your best photos ever.
BE PROUD, they are wonderful!!! GREAT TRIP for me.
Make sure you tell me where all those waterfalls where.
My wife leaves for Croatia Friday night for two weeks.
I want her to view these waterfalls.
