Your photo here is simply astonishing. The mountain is so magestic and the whale adds so much interest. I love all the varying shades of blue. You feel like you are really there.

Incredible. I love it!

The more I keep coming across this picture the more I like it. It has a fantastic mystical quality with the mountain taking a while to come into focus. FANTASTIC !!!!!

Thanks for all your comments everyone! Actually Fujisan is a few hundred kms away from where I took this, hence the haze, but on clear days you can see Fuji from all over the place.

It looked so familiar, not because I have ever been near Japan, I am just interested in the country and its culture.
The color transitions in this image are awesome, 6/7 different layers of blue on top of each other. Some clouds to add something to the background and some rocks for the foreground.
A bit hazy, but that adds to the mystical/divine Fuji.
Too bad it didn't make the first three. :-(

A beatiful shot which I'm sure you are hearing a lot of. I'm a little undecided about the rock in the forground but I think it works well enough. I wish I had photographed our Mt Ranier instead of the stupid picture I submitted : ) Your composition, colors and execution are very nice. Good job.

Gorgeous shot! Is this Mt. Rainier over Puget Sound? Great landscape.

I like the composition and contnt, and for ths challenge I can even see deliberately heightening the difference between fore- and background. Still, I think I'd want to boost the contrast and detail of the background if I was going to print it for frequent viewing...

Beautiful picture. I love it framed between the snow capped mountain and the white caps where the rocks break through at the bottom. Beautiful job. PTL 8

Mt Rainer?? very nice shot 10

very nice. a little more rock or no rock might improve it, because i first want to know what that dark thing is and it irritates me that i have to stare at it for a second to figure out that it is a rock and not a whale or something. i love the peak in the background, how at first you don't notice it and then wow when you see it. maybe that's what the black rock it there for, to get your attention.

very nice. Crop the rock out, makes a stronger/simpler composition IMO.

Hooray! What an AWESOME shot! This is my "Alan's Surefire Pick of the Week" shot (I'm 2/3 in making this prediction in past challenges). I expect to see this on the front page of the new DPC2! The layering of different areas of the landscape is incredible; the blue water is beautiful; the cloud adds perspective, and the snow-capped mountain literally tops it all off. I'm looking forward to learning where this was taken. Is this a volcano? It reminds me of Mt. Vesuvius in Italy when we visited a few years ago. -- alansfreed -10

This is just great. I love the watercolor effect of the layered hills and the mountain. Fits the challenge, no technical troubles... 10 ~indigo997

Oh my God! Is that a whale popping up??!?!? Where were you for this one!? Your blues are crisp and rich. The dark to light transition is pleasing to the eye. 9 kosmik

Ohh yeah, I love it! Great job.

Awesome pic. I guess it helps to have a volcano near your house, just for this sort of occasion. Great work. 8
