    great photos.....that one of Namibia looks like an illustration. I can't imagine it as a photograph. I'd like to see it in real life.

    awesome places! The tulip fields are only about an hour's travel away from me in spring, but most of the others will require serious travel... I'd like to see the pink lake in Senegal when I go to West Africa...

    a few of them are in the States Kristen ... you've more chance than I of seeing them!
    there are some fascinating/beautiful images there, but i notice the photographers aren't attributed. Are they all stock or PD images?

    A lot of wonderfully odd stuff, but the one from Moravia just blows me away.

    They would look a lot more normal without the overcooked processing.

    That is true. "Gullfoss - Iceland" for instance, is straight off the sensor of Trey Ratcliff so you know that the image has been HDR'd to the max and then HDR'd some more.

    I count 3 that are overcooked....YMMV. Enjoy the ones you like and ignore the ones you don't.
