Was mental, we played with wild snakes n scorpians thinking we were invincible. Looking back we were morons. But we'd all spent the previous week wrestling crocs and then we were in the middle of the jungle just wandering about with venom everywhere, so we kind of HAD to feel untouchable or we'd have poo'd ourselves lol
Haha, the crocs weren't so much messing about, We'd been working at the Madras Crocodile Bank for a few months, and when you need to move crocs, you gotta wrassal um first lol I've never attacked a wild animal.... tho I have defended myself against a few mozzies that left them wishing they hadn't messed with the slap master!
lol This photo (and all my india shots) was during a trip to a research centre in the jungle that I arranged for my last week in India, all my other shots from the whole 6 months are on a broken MP3 hardrive :'(
I like this one best out of the edits, I'm not sure why, I just like the way the shapes catch the eye and the silhouette allows you to follow the contours and curves instead of being distracted by detail.
Also, I am confused, D: you took this photo in June 2010? You can time travel?
I like the 2nd one too, it has more.... feeling than the others.... although the 4th one interests me more as a zoologist because you can make out the snakes scalation pattern more
Essentially this is one of those "Great Subject, Poor Photo" shots lol I was using a broken point and shoot (lens was jammed so had to move camera closer and further to acheive focus lol) and it was getting dark. But yeh, I still love the shot.
such a small watermark. if someone wanted this picture it would take 2.4 seconds to remove the watermark from this photo. The DA watermark is pretty good. Although I have always thought that watermarks destroy the essence of a photo.
Yeah I know the watermark would be easily removed in this pic, but any eatermark would be as its really only 2 tones for most of the picture. Normally my watermark works quite well and I put it into complex areas to deter theives lol
Personally I hate the DA watermark, as you can't control opacity or location, but thats just my opinion.
I agree with you that watermarks can kill photos, which is why I try and keep mine small and unobtrusive, whilst still in complex enough areas so that removing them will destroy the shot.
