    These were taken in a recent trip to Arraial D´Ajuda (Bahia, Brazil). I use the NEX5 with the 18-55mm and the 16mm 2.8.

    Very nice! I am from Brasil, but never ventured up to Bahia. But your photos Definotely remind me of ome of the parts in northern Rio de Janeiro. Thanks for sharing!

    Many thanks for all the nice words...but let me tell you that this is a remote paradise like place and unfortunately not all Brazil looks like this (although we have our share of places like this). I live in Rio de Janeiro, which is one of the biggest metropolis in the world and even though it´s an incredibly beautiful city full of nature, it´s also full of people and I could never get these shots without having a bunch of people in the background (unless these were taken REALLY early in the morning).

    Please keep the shots coming Rawfa. They are awesome!

    Like others have said, really love the colours here. I assume they're not OCC JPGs so :clap2: to you post-processing formula. Very nice work!

    Rawfa, I really, really like the colors and that first one really knocks me out with its vibrancy but it's the angle of view that really hits a home run for me! Love the way you've framed it with the motorcycle, the power/street light pole and the low view shooting upwards. Super!

    You're doing wonderfully with your eye and your camera.
