Wow, incredible pictures. Any of these could be in a magazine showing the beauty of CR. If you're not a pro photographer you should be. Thanks for sharing!

btw - where are the snake/iguana pics from?

Great pics! Thanks for sharing. Do you shoot digital? What type of camera/film did you use to get such great color saturation? Just curious...thanks again for sharing.

Sorry, looking at the pictures again I noticed that all the info is printed below each shot, oops. Thanks again

thanks cykelly for mentioning about the camera, I went back and looked and found it at the bottom. (though even if I were to get the same camera I doubt my pics would come out this great).

Robin, again, thanks for sharing, incedible quality.

Another Wow! Those are absolutely beautiful.

robin, did you use a tripod for most of the pictures taken? Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely stunning shots, and very inspirational. I looked at some of your other pbase galleries as have a wonderful eye. Thanks for sharing these.

Thanks everyone ,
After a few years with the Canon 10D , it finally occured to me that the image quality would never equal that of my EOS 3 ,so to try to get close,using the fastest shutter speeds with the smallest apertures and then flash on top of that when no tripod is available , which there wasn't for this trip.Wish I had one though.That's the only way for full control if you've got the time and patience.Most of the pictures were doubled and blended with a little blur in photoshop,which adds that nice deep,warm,saturation.It's irresistible to me.E-mail if you'd like the details. The Boa/Iguana dance came to me when a local saw me with my camera and wanted to show me something very exciting , so through a kitchen and into that very natural setting ,small waterfall,shrubs etc...
A very nice place for a ambush indeed.That was Drake Bay on the Osa.
Thanks again
