The full quotation is:
“I discovered that close to half the planet is ‘pristine.’ We live in towns such as London, Paris or Sao Paulo and have the impression that all the pristine areas are gone, but they are not.”

I admire Sebastiao Salgado as a photographer as well as a man. His work with the rebuilt of the raniforest around his birthplace and the institution of a National Park around him are an example every organization on this planet should follow.

Congratulations on Top 10. I agree that this shot (especially with that quote) was extremely underrated. I expected to see it on the front page. Beautiful image and sentiment.

Thank you for the nice comments and votes.

I have to say I expected a bit more with this shot... Salgado is one of my favorite authors, I'm very fond of this quotation and I thought the picture expressed it well, in a "natural" way.

Anyway, happy with the result.
