WOW what an image! Simple composition but yet so powerful
Papoa A great shot.
Framed nicely Interesting lens distortion here. Creates a tunnel that the water appears to be rushing through. The only thing you don't have here is a strong focal point. I think John Peri's comment was reaching out at the same idea. There seems to be a missing element. Not necessarily a person, but something that could act as a more powerful point of interest.
excellent i aspire to take photos like this
This is fantastic! It just draws you in, in a way that other formats could not. The exposure and tonality are wonderful. A human would detract. it is very surreal and appealing, as if it is on some alien planet on the shores of some strange seas.
Watch out! You're going to get wet! This looks like two or three ansel adams shots all rolled into one. Spagtacular!
Another incredible shot, but I would love to see some human figure added in the foreground.
Aesthetics 10, Originality 10 This is georgeous! My favorite so far of your images! what a tramendous image!!!!!!!!! wow . Great stuff!
Fantastic! I love it!
Ha Ha! you are saying I am a little obsessed. Maybe you are right! Still love this incredible photo though (I originally gave it 10/9) and came back to see it again. That being said, I maintain that a reclining nude in the foreground would be stupendous...
Aesthetics 9, Originality 9 Love that 35mm lens
Well now... I'm going to have to ask you to stop taking pictures completely, so that I don't end up with an incurable inferiority complex. Beautiful.
Aesthetics 7, Originality 7 I cannot get over your work. You are a master.
Aesthetics 6, Originality 7 Amazing

you posess a gift
Its hard to pick a favorite out of this sumptuous set of well done and well chosen photos. Absolutely captivating.
Really great photo!
I would love to follow you around for a week to see how you do this. It feels like a brain massage when I stare at your photographs! You are one of my favorites on this site.
OH Yes! This is SUPERB!
It's too good.
Fisheye Effect Overdone? First, let me add my compliments to your overall portfolio. I would suggest, however, that you consider utilizing a digital editor, such as Paint Shop Pro, to reduce or eliminate the "fish-eye" effect introduced by the wide angle lens used for this and some other of your images. I have taken the liberty to utilize Paint Shop Pro's "Fisheye Distortion Correction" filter to create an alternate version of this image. In my opinion, the corrected version showcases the spectacular landscape (and your talent for depicting it) more effectively than does the uncorrected version.
Breathtaking! You have an amazing eye!
Great shot. I really like the fisheye - it creates a sense of inevitability/unstoppability with regards to the encroaching waves. The effect creates a point of interest otherwise absent in the actual composition - to remove the fisheye would be to remove the particular appeal of this image, which is quite subtle, but very effective.
A wonderfull image in a truly inspiring folder.Your seascapes in particular appeal to me.The wideangle distortion in no way detracts from the impact.Regards Pete.
Hi. Came here from a Forum thread discussing the 35mm lens. What a great photograph! I am also impressed with the corrected version posted by Bill. Regards.
