[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi guys! This is a shot taken about a month ago in Pellinge (an islet outside Porvoo in Finland) one afternoon. PS-work: contrast, saturation, burn & dodge tools and different layer modes.

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

Hello Paavo, this is an excellent shot. I love the composition and the satuarated cololurs in the foreground. Very good work.

The colourful rocks in the foreground are so beautiful they cheer up the ominous sky in the background. Great shot.

Its beautiful how the color of the rock contrast with the whole scene. Just incredible.

Now that is ART. The limited palette is wonderful. Love the only color in the foreground transitioning to only tones of black and gray in the BG. You managed to do some great PS work without the picture looking artificial.

Artful composition Paavo. Wonderful saturated colors in a gray sky. I like how the ambers colors rocks vanishing in to water.
Great work,well done.

Very artistic, Paavo. I love the bright shiny gold rock in the foreground, contrasted with the soft gray tones in the back.
Lots of texture and beautiful lines. Great job and TFS. : )
