Radu, Wonderful and really lovely landscape. The shot is full of lighting and lovely pov. Ganesh

Hello Radu,
This is a stunning POV and beautiful picture. It looks like a postal card, I love those colors :) If you were there during the hurricane, you must have lived strong emotions... I just wonder why there is some noise especially on the sky but this is an insignificant detail for such a nice capture. It is nice to see a post from you. Thanks,

Hey, Radu, so that's where you are!
Good for you.: )
A very striking composition.
An interesting POV of the conch shell.
I have never seen the animal inside the shell.
You managed to capture the texture of that living flesh very well.
Take care, wherever you go next, and TFS. : )
