About the Image(s)

Photographed in the "Judean Desert and Monasteries" workshop.

On the way to Mar Saba Monastery in the desert we met a herd of camels and cyclists. Of all the group of photographers, only I turned out to be nimble and managed to photograph the dialogue between a cyclist and a camel.

Your opinions?

I shoot in RAW format and process with Lightroom: basic adjustment, detail, texture, etc. Then in Photoshop I used a Filter Nic Collection -> Silver Efex Pro2 -> Preset Antique Plate II.

Camera settings: Sony a7r III. ISO 160, 1/320s, f/16, 123mm, lens: Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OOS.

Israel, this is an outstanding photograph! Your image not only tells a story, it tells an intriguing story! I can't look at it without wondering what the situation is. Why is the camel out on the road without a rider or person leading it? Of course, I know nothing about camels, but it seems strange.

Monochrome works beautifully for this image and the Antique Plate preset is perfect. I especially like your use of a light vignette since it fits the antique style so nicely. Sometimes it's virtually impossible to suggest improvements for an image. This is one of those times. Well done!
