Gunang Bromo

By Ridefastcarveha
I know I've been going over the top with the classic lead in shots, but I discovered this shot today in my catalogue and decided to edit. Turned out pretty well, and wanted to share with others.

Had to walk up the 258 steps to get to the top of the still active volcano in East Java. The people in the shot are local villagers selling bottled water and snacks.

Thanks for the comments on my previous 2 shots.

Love the perspective - particularly on the figures.

Thanks Moria,
I was unhappy with the contrast on this upload. After this upload I re-touched the photo by boasting the lights (a lot) some shadows and darks down to add to the contrast.
Maybe should have desaturated the sky a little more..

great shot,as Moira said the figures really help the image . The sky looks good,i may have chopped an inch off the your portfolio it deserves more credit than it gets.
