  1. As the old saying goes, in the eye of the beholder. I enjoyed seeing nature’s beauty through your view. Thanks Arno for sharing your views.

  2. Geoff, thanks for your comment.
    I have no doubt whatsoever that there are better photographers out there than I am. I’m not preaching to be the best. Nor did I say that my rainbow images are the best ever made. I’ve seen plenty of rainbow pictures, plenty better than these, also some less good. But if you live in a country where you hardly ever see a rainbow like this, it IS a big thing.

    And where photography and art are totally subjective things and depending on one’s taste, I’m sure that there are people out there loving and hating my pictures.
    In the end I’m shooting mostly for myself, and enjoy sharing pictures with others. I take no offense if you find these images just average, and hope you’ll come back again on a “good day”, and find the wow factor in some of my images 🙂

  3. Arno, while I applaud your love of country and enthusiasm, the images you show are about average for a photo enthusiast. The physics and geometry of rainbows is well established and there is little mystery left as the fanciful myths have been shown to be just that.
    If you are trying to pas on a message, I think you will have to either move further away from ordinary photography, or develop some signature styles that earn you a place in the annals (which is not easy).
    Maybe you’ve caught me on a bad day. I’ve judges many comps so far this year and seen a lot of fiar to good work. There is something that leaps out when you see top work. Can you help me to describe what that something is?
    Please don’t take this comment as discouraging, take it as a challenge to produce at a higher level. The Net is wonderful for the exchange of ideas, but people get to filter sites for the ones they find best.
