Mt. Pinatubo, Tarlac

This is what's inside the crater of Mt. Pinatubo. This is what's left after it collapsed in 1991 following its' series of eruptions. I've been dreaming all my life to see this place. When we arrived there, it was love at first sight.

Absolutely gorgeous capture. I LOVE your inclusion of the sweeping greens on the right leading the eye to the center of the crater. Stunning!

Edwin, I´m just impressed. I already started on this, and I would like to learn a bit. How do you get this colours?? Processing the imagin iIsuppose. Is it like that? Excellent composition

@Mone: Mone, Thanks for the kind words.

As far as I remember, this photo came straight out of the camera. maybe slight adjustment on levels, but I dunno. The thing is you should be at the right place at the right time. for example, the best times to take photographs of landscape are from 5am-8am and 4pm-7(or 8 in some places)pm. you also have to be at the right place, the sun should face your subject. you could further adjust the saturation or levels of the colors in photoshop if you're not contented with the results. I shot this one as JPEG file so it's already processed in the camera. if you shoot RAW, I think you really need to post process it.

have a nice day! :)
