Congratulations to dallvr for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 21 votes - View Previous Winners


Here are photos from two areas of Botswana, the Kalahari and the Linyanti. April was late summer in Southern Africa and the skies were dramatic, the sightings terrific. Will post Okavango photos in another thread.

Wow Shirley ! These are beautiful. What an incredible set. I'm having a hard time coming up with how I can express how much I like these. Fantastic work. Voted for sure.

Shirley, it looks like you had a wonderful trip and some wonderful shots as well! Did you use a drone for the wildebeest aerial?

Shirley you have a creative eye, you don't miss opportunities to take all the goodness in. Yes I have favorites here but honestly I just like that you saw and presented everything wonderfully. The mix is entertaining as are your varied POV images from at the waterline to way above.
I voted, you shared a wonderful series here

Shirley, I am impressed by the wealth and beauty of the images from Botswana! The aerial view of flamingos in-flight is abosolutely a rare sight. There are too t many to pick additional favorites and I also enjoy the close up images of the frog and water lily at sunset. They definitely EMV! I wish you had listed the FL of lenses you used for those. It doesn’t have to be the full exif…just the FL would suffice.

Thank you, Chris. It was great to see the cheetahs on our very first game drive in the Kalahari. The elephant in the water was a first for us, being in a boat next to several of these giants. Fortunately they were all very calm.

Yes, Bob, fantastic trip and a great escape from our post-Covid reality. Not a drone, the aerial photos were shot from a doors off helicopter. It was great to get up in the air after the pans had filled with rain water. Downside was a ton of mosquitos hatching.

Thanks Karl, on a safari, I just photograph everything interesting that I see, whether it is animals other than the Big Five, animal interactions, or landscapes.

Joshua, I will check my post, I had checked the EXIF boxes, nor sure why it doesn't show up. In any event, the flamingo aerial was 235 mm on the FE 100-400, 1/1600 sed. f/5.6, ISO 1250. Reed Frog 90mm with 90mm macro, 1/1000 sec. f/6.3, ISO 1000.
Lily, 28mm with Tamron 28-200, 1/640 sec. f/10, ISO 8000. Many if not all of these had noise reduction in PureRAW. If you know why the EXIF didn't show up after being checked, I'd love to know.

Hi Shirley, thank you for the info. I will be going to the general area next week; hence, my interest. I was surprised how well the Tamron 28-200 performed there. I do have that lens but I will not be taking that and will be opting for a different setup. I won’t be taking my macro lens on this trip either. Too much gear already.., .

You either host the images somewhere else and link them to FM or one of your steps in the work flow stripped the exif away, I would say. It looks like the second case applies to your situation. I don’t know what process/step did strip the exif away though but typically is the conversion from TIF to JPG.

I have figured out what the problem is. I had minimal export info checked in my LRClassic settings. Restoring more of them resulted in getting my EXIF information to show.

Where will you be going? We stayed at Jack's Camp. We have stayed there before, but a long time ago. It has a Victorian decor, which I personally can do without, but the camp is well run and has good guides.
