Jaco Sunset

DSC_0309, originally uploaded by Daniel Bott.

So I finally got some more of my photos edited from the trip to Costa Rica. I was satisfied with how they came out for the most part, but I have finally realized the limitations of my tamron 70-300 lens. It isn't the best piece of glass for low-light, especially when it loses sharpness at the long end. Oh well, time to think about upgrading....

Anyways, this is my favorite shot from the trip. There were some minor corrections (color, contrast) that were necessary but overall I really like this shot. Possibly one of my best.

The rest of my set can be seen here:

Mak's shots can be seen here:

Have a great day!

Pura Vida en Costa Rica!

As you can see, the blog has taken on a new language for a bit. Mak and I (the 2 photogs...dur) are in Costa Rica until Saturday shooting away. Our time here has been in Jacó, a surf town along the Pacific Coast. The scenery is great and the wildlife is very unique! Click the photo below to view the (few) pictures that I have uploaded so far...
