Mirror Lake in Yosemite

I know that probably there will be a lot of pictures of Mirror Lake here in this Mirror Image contest, but I am sending mine anyway because I like how it turned out.

This is a stitch of two shots in portrait position taken at 10mm f22 0,3s iso80 using a Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 lens with a Tiffen CPL filter mounted on my Pentax K-5 II. Photo stitched in Microsoft ICE and then treated in Lightroom.

Parabuteo unicinctus (Harris's Hawk, Gavião asa-de-telha) in the wild
Posted By amrocha

Views: 294

Scientific name: Parabuteo unicinctus

Popular names: Harris's Hawk, Bay-winged Hawk, Gavião asa-de-telha

We spotted this hawk on the side of the road near El Calafate on our way from El Chalten, so I stopped the car to try to photograph him, but he flew away as soon as I started to approach him. He was twice the size of three adult caracaras whom he stole food from a minute later.

Location: Ruta 40, El Calafate, Santa Cruz, Patagonia, Argentina

Settings: 1/400s f8 iso200 @ 115mm

A bird and a big bonsai tree with fall colors in Patagonia

I know bonsai means a small tree, but some of those lenga trees in the trail to Laguna de Los Tres does look like a bonsai from a distance! The bird gives you a good hint of the size of the tree and prove it is not a bonsai.
The fog in the back is the result of a long rainy day with temperatures around 10°C (50° F)

El Chalten, Parque Nacional Los Glariares, Patagonia, Argentina

Pentax K-5 II + smc PENTAX-DA 18-135mm WR @60mm 1/160s f5.6 ISO400

Contemplating the sky in the desert

This photo is a result of shooting at 10pm near San Pedro de Atacama in the Atacama desert, northern Chile. My wife and I drove to an observation point outside the city for some Milky Way shots when we some new friends. Raj and Sharul, this great Indian-British couple, were just parking the car at the same spot also for shooting stars, so we joined together for an hour of fun shooting. This is a two-shot pano stitched at Microsoft Image Composite Editor and then edited in Adobe Lightroom for white balance, tone curve and some contrast and saturation touches. I sincerely can not remember nor correctly identify who is that in this photo.

Grandma's last portrait

Here is my grandma Alzira with 91 years old back in 2013.
This is one of the last photos I took of her during the weekend for Mother's Day celebration, a few days before she was hospitalized. She never recovered and sadly passed away one year later, but I was lucky to be able to be there that weekend and meet her one last time while she was still in good shape. She was born and raised in the farm, raised 7 children, did not have an easy life, but made a wonderful family.
I liked the BW version better than the original color one. I think I did a little crop from the original (I need to look for it in my backups).

I had to wait quite a while to get to the spot where I took this photo from without anyone in front of me. The crowd was huge that night at Lincoln Memorial, but I was able to get a nice shot up close holding the camera tight against my belly for a steady shot without my tripod.
