Brilliant textures in a moody landscape make this an all round excellent photo. Well done.
10/10 Love it! Hauntingly beautiful.
The lighting is dull in a qualitative sense, but the effect on the subject is to reveal 10,000 different grays. Spagtacular.
comment to Cabo Raso I've enjoied all of your B&W lansdscapes, but I think that the special fascination of this one comes from the coexistence of all the visual scales as metaphores of spiritual states: the clever detail of the foremost plan and the vast breathe of the far horizon, the steadiness and the change, sharp shapes and vanishing ones. IMO it's the best of the set and an absolute compositional and emotional reference.
I like the shot very much. Although, I do not think the foreground rocks add much to the composition..seems to push you back to far from the more interesting part of the scene.
Beautifully mysterious landscape.
Through the years I have come to realize that using a wide angle lens for landscapes requires skill and planning. You could use this as an example of how that kind of effort pays off. Interesting foreground, mystical spray, dramatic cloudscape.
Great Makes me want to visit Cabo Raso :)
This is an excellent wide-angle shot with great tonality and composition. The foreground beach rocks, ocean mist, and rock outcroppings all make this a very interesting image.
I like this photo a lot. I think the round cobbles in the foreground contrast nicely with the rough rocks to the sides and rear and add depth to the photo. I assume, with the long exposure, that it isn't "mist" in the background, but spray and the movement of the waves?
Wow. Eye poping foto. Great one. I would want to see this in color. (just to see how it looks)
Wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing, great picture! Hasan

Really metaphysical slash mythological sea and land 'scape. Caught my eye. Land and sea blend curiously with horizon dissolving in mist. Tortured rocks, brooding sky. (Great creepy setting for a gothic murder mystery.)Attractive work and worth savoring,i,e. I like it. Great ad for B and W too. Thanks for the opportunity to comment.
Aesthetics 9, Originality 9 Great composition! I'm partial to a B&W photographer using a boat-anchor Pentax - great, if heavy, camera.
Very good, but could have been really excellent... I feel that this image is a bit too symetrical, and as such, would get a bit boring on a wall after some time... at least for me.
I have a problem with the fact that one of the far rocks ends up exactly in the center. It happens to be very dark and surrounded by very bright waters, and therefore, this high contrast attracts even more attention.
Basically, there's imo too much focus on this rock.
Imo again, the stones in front - center - are too bright compared to the rocks front left, and I feel quite an artificial burning there...
Solution could be:
1) to simply crop off the right side of the frame, where the rock isn't fascinating anyway, and to keep a perfect square - the left side of the image.
2) then to burn in the stones a little in front.
Then, I'd probably hang the result at home with greater pleasure. Regards.
Good composition and tonality I totally disagree with Mac Gouguenheim.
Excellent Detail The contrast between the detail in the foreground rocks and the water is excellent. I don't feel at all that the photo is symmetric. The only area that lacks interest for me is the small pool of water in the near foreground... if only it had clouds reflected in it...
Aesthetics 7, Originality 7 You have the best monotone work on this site. Your work is extraordinary and inspiring. Thank you thank you thank you.
Wow Really great!
Beautiful, beautiful image.
Wonderful image, wonderful folder.
If you're in Colorado My eye was caught by the portrait of Sandy #3. But I see you are also a really good landscape photographer. My two favorite forms of photography. If you are ever in CO and want to shoot let me know.
expressive, dramatic.....I only can say 7/7 !
what more can I say ? A perfect picture!
great! it's one of the greatest bw photos here. I love everything in it, rocks, little pond, clouds... congrats and thanks for show it :)
