Inside Lake Naivasha – located at an hour’s drive from Nairobi – lies a beautiful crescent moon-shaped island.
Just like its shape, the island is named “Crescent Island”. The island isn’t big, but is surely entitled to be called the most peaceful place on Earth.
To enter the island, you need to take a boat. Because water has dried in the Lake Naivasha, you can also get to the island by road, but then, what’s the fun? Approaching the island on boat is much more exciting.
You are greeted by a small sign that reads Crescent Island.
This island gained popularity with the movie “Out of Africa”. It is also well known as the scene for the Tomb Raider that starred Angelina Jolie. The ancestors of the animals living here now were the ones relocated for the movie shooting. Then, the lake was deep that the animals were trapped on the island. But now, many animals escape the island by crossing the land.
This place is practically the one and only walking safari in Kenya. There are no carnivores that can harm humans. You may want to watch out for hippos, 3~4 meter long snakes and hyena that appear occasionally at night.
However, this island breathes of wild life just like all the other national parks in Africa. This is the rough thorn of acacia tree that giraffes eat.

Following is a user's work with Samsung NX10 camera.
Here are ingenious series of artworks by Ben Heine, a Samsung imageloger. All the pieces of images, served to complete the panoramas, was taken with Samsung NX10. Enjoy the fact that the world we are living in is perfectly round. The Earth continues to spin…
Ben’s note : 3 days of intense work to make this huge panorama of Cologne, Germany’s fourth-largest city. This is a 360 degrees view, I tried to get as many details as possible, sometimes repainting different parts of the cityscape. The original composition is really big (almost 20.000 pixels wide!) because I assembled more than 30 photos. I took all of them from the top of “KölnTurm” when I was in Germany 2 weeks ago… (FYI, I didn’t use any autopano or fisheye). The city’s famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) is the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Cologne. The University of Cologne (Universität zu Köln) is one of Europe’s oldest universities.
Cologne is a major cultural center of the Rhineland and has a vibrant arts scene. Cologne is home to more than 30 museums and hundreds of galleries. Exhibitions range from local ancient Roman archeological sites to contemporary graphics and sculpture. The Cologne Trade Fair hosts a number of trade shows such as Art Cologne, imm Cologne International Furniture Fair and the Photokina. Cologne is also well-known for its celebration of Cologne Carnival, the annual reggae summerjam, and Cologne Gay Pride. Within Germany, Cologne is also known as an important media center. Several radio and television stations, including Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR), RTL and VOX, have their headquarters in the city. ©Ben Heine
Ben’s note : This is the landscape I saw from the top of Beynac Castle, in the Dordogne department of France. I visited this beautiful place last week. I spent several days to assemble and edit some 20 photos I took there (no Fisheye and no AutoPano). The original image is huge and it was quite a challenge this time because my graphic tablet just got damaged and I had to do everything with a standard mouse. :) ©Ben Heine
Ben’s note : This is where I used to revise my books when I made my degree in Journalism. I didn’t use a fisheye lens. I have actually assembled some 14 photos I took when I was there. The original image is huge (12000 pixels wide). The “Mont des Arts” (meaning “hill of the arts”) is a historic site in the center of Brussels, Belgium. The showcase square was created for the Universal Exposition held in Brussels in 1910. It featured a park and a monumental staircase with cascading fountains descending the gentle slope from Place Royale down to Boulevard de l’Empereur.
The original square was destroyed during the post-war construction frenzy known as Brusselization; between 1954 and 1965, the square and its surroundings gave way to massive, severely geometric postmodern structures such as the Royal Library of Belgium and the Congress Palace. The Mont des Arts offers one of Brussels’ finest views. From the vantage point on a hill, the famous tower of the Brussels Town Hall at the Grand Place is clearly visible. ©Ben Heine

Followings are user's images taken by Samsung NX10 camera.
In July, I’ve travelled to Japan with my girlfriend. On our three weeks trip we saw many amazing sights and experienced the Japanese way of living. It was a treat to our eyes and cameras. In this blog entry I would like to share with you some photos of the Gion Matsuri festival in Kyoto.Samsung NX10 │ 1/180s │ f2.0 │ 30mm │ ISO 3200
This annual festival is one of the many popular festivals in Japan. Beforehand, a lot of people warned us that it would be very very crowded, but due to all of our big music festivals in Belgium, we felt prepared.
What we saw was something quite different though. The Japanese people who seemed (with all respect) quite modest, closed and calm turned into wild party animals during the consecutive celebration nights.
A lot of them dressed up, most of them in traditional kimono, but we bumped into a lot of silly costumes as well.
The main attraction of the nights we visited seemed to be a group of Shinto followers carrying a mikoshi (a portable shrine) on their shoulders, jumping up and down and shouting. It created a very energetic atmosphere.
Samsung NX10 │ 1/50s │ f2.0 │ 30mm │ ISO 1600
Despite the beautiful decorations, the streets were dark. Too dark for most cameras perhaps, so I didn’t have to think long which camera to bring. I took the NX10 because of its ISO 1600 and 3200 setting in combination with the pancake f2 lens. The results were a bit grainy, but after all these are high ISO values. In my opinion, this grain doesn’t bother and I like the quality, especially when you think of the size and weight of this camera.
