Oh man that pic caught my eye for sure!
This is my very first post here so I'm a newbie here. I'm into making flash and working on my own hompage at the moment. Anyway I was wondering if you'd be ok for me to put your pic in my Gallery section on my hompage? Of course I will remove it straight away if you have any objections. If not then of course you get full credits for it. So please let me know if you're kool with idea. I gave a 10 btw. Great pic and looking at it makes me forget how annoying my motherinlaw is at times.

Can you tell us, was there any type of lens filter used for this shot? Thanks.


I used a cokin G2 graduated neutral density filter.

Nice work. I like the composition and colors but the processing makes it look like you almost cut and pasted two different images together?

The outer edge of the rocks at the bottom of the image seem unreal.

I rated it 7 overall.

WOW, that's nice. great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Such an unusual depth of colour to this image. And even at this limited size it somehow conveys more strongly than many landscape photographs a real vastness of scale and also serenity. 8

Super shot, great color, slightly noisy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent use of foreground - awesome color - I gave you a 10! Nice work.

I like the way you have shot and the colours you have been able to produce. But, I do think that you have gone a little bit over with it. I think I would have really liked it without so much processing on it. It's way too sharp that halos are around the rocks and the digital noise are sticking out from the water. Too harsh a treatment for a rather soothing scene. You have done a great job with composition and exposure, it's just the processing that I am rather unhappy about.
11/11/2004 08:01:49 PM
I would love to find this in a calendar. Well done, lovely colors.

9 very cool shot. I absolutlylove the colors. What kind of filter did you use to get so many rich colors?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2004 07:26:58 AM
WOW, nice!

Well you know - there are landscapes, and then there are LANDSCAPES! And this is a beauty. I often find it tough to vote on shots of wonderful scenes unless I can see some creative input in the shot itself.

Here, I see excellenece in every respect - the POV, time of day, DOF, choice of lens, exposure and processing. I love it and it deserves to grace a well printed calendar. You will surely ribbon with this one.

Very good composition and balance. There seems to be a bit to much post processing in the water closest to the shore but I have to admit that it's cool. It seems to me that the horizon is a bit sinking to the right. 1° or less. Anyway very good photo that would fit nicely in a calendar.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2004 06:38:25 PM
The colors, the rocks floating in the front, the dynamic lines - all add up to a wow and a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2004 12:47:55 PM
The rocks at the bottom are blue tinged. But I love the sky. 7

Call me a sucker for sunsets, but I really like the colors and the fog along the rocks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very serene scene, great shot, one of my favorites in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2004 04:51:30 AM
Sometimes one just has to say "10!" even before they've given it much thought. In this case, the thought didn't change my mind. The black frame suits this image well.

Wow, this is very saturated...
