Hi Stephen,

looks like a wonderful windswept place, great foreground with that yellowish rock against the green. Very well spotted! Is it me or the horizon slightly on the tilt to the left??

Hoping to visit your part of the world this summer...



Hi Stephen,
Good wide angle image again.
Carved by the wind and swept by the rain...(had to type this one ..sorry:-)

I'm sure this is level but it sure feels tilted until one looks at the waterline at the far mountains and at the clouds. I have to remember that you no doubt are using a PC. For some reason your images aren't as saturated when viewed on TN. When I drage them to the desktop the look SO much better. It's frustrating. I use a Mac. I like the foreground interest in this shot and the grand vista to the far shore. The colors look very natural... especially the greens which are the most sensitive.

salut Stephen,
très impressionnante ambiance dans toutes les images. Le contraste fort et les couleurs donnent une atmosphère lourde. bravo

Hi Steve

Another splendid shot from you, my friend!
I really love the difference of tones here between the FG and BG...they are really great for attracting attention :)
The details everywhere are also terrific and very clear, the tones are simply amazing and i really love that wide blue sky, nicely covered by small clouds.
Now i don't know for sure, but i think that that horizon is ust a very little bit tilted; sorry if i'm wrong :)
Anyway, another outstanding compo.

Cheers and TFS

Hi Steve,
Eventhough this might not have been the light you so much desire, the view and composition are still very beautiful. That white rock realy makes for a stong lead in to the photo. I do agree with Horia on the tilt, and I have to agree with you on the very dark viewfinder of the Canon cameras. I've strugled with it many times. If I only had the money to buy at least the 5D.

P.S. totally forgot, that only piece of plastic........
