photoblog image Obudu - Tiv Village

I did one of the cancer 'Race for Life' runs yesterday and would have liked to get a picture of the backs of runners (and walkers) with their reasons for running (in memory or celebrating the life of, their loved ones).  Unfortunately I didn't feel up to running with an SLR camera round my neck in the heat!  So here's another one of the Obudu Cattle Ranch instead.  Not sure if I'm breaking all conventions by putting it out in this shape and size...but I guess rules are made for breaking.  In trying  to get rid of the relatively new landscaped gardens which give the game away, as to this not being a real village, I thought I got this very ''through a letter box'' look..  The mists up the mountain make everything look sooo mysterious.....even by mid morning.

Firstly well done on your run.

The letterbox standard crop is a 16:9 you could also try the 2x1 crop too, they are very easy on the eye and also close to the golden ratio.

As for your shot, well I like it, only the crop is too tight.
Barbara: Thanks Jide, I'll try that out

Will hit you back as from tomorrow. remember, Suby shows no mercy for dud shot and loves stonking images. I like the shot above. Good one.


Sorry too busy at the moment to comment extensively, will do that once I am back to full speed, still in holiday mode here smile
Barbara: I tremble in fear!... In the meantime I'll enjoy the moratorium.

I love the picture - it feels like a recollection from a dream (if you could capture it!). Just wondering though, why is it called Obudu - Tiv village, since Obudu isnt in Tivland (Benue/Plateau/Taraba). Anyway great picture!
