Hi Saeed!

I like the color tones and the deep contrast very much. The point of view is surprising: is it taken from a plane or from a summit? Anyway, the view and the perspective are fine. It would be interesting to know a bit more than the content of the spare notes.

Kind regards


Salam Saeed,

Beautiful landscape.
Pure white clouds on blue sky are amazingly pretty.
Very nice shot!

Deep colors, fantastic clouds, nice composition. TFS

Hi Saeed,
Fascinating image!
The c. polarizer created a very particular effect here, almost night in day.
I like a lot the way the clouds looks like, plenty of good details on its whites.
My compliments and thanks for share it.
Best regards,

Hi Saeed
great composition and colors, the clouds are really awesome.
Good DOF, and sharpness, and yet a good use of the PL filter.

Hi Saaed,
I have been myself in the region of Sabalan, but I did'nt succeed like you did in making such good pictures! Of course it is the polarizing filter that renders clouds so plastic, all the better for the landscape shot. My compliments, Saeed, and thanks for sharing
Best regards

HI Saeed,
Wow beautiful, love those big fluffy white clouds and the bright blue sky. Beautiful landscape. TFS

Hi Saeed,
I love the darkening effect of the CP filter. It brought out the details and whiteness of the clouds perfectly. The colors of the warm landscape gives the photo that bit of warmth.

Hello Saeed

The DOF and POV is wonderful.
The clarity is superb creating an almost 3D effect.
I feel as if I could run up that hill and grab the clouds.
Excellent composition.
The colours are rich and well saturated.


Hi Saeed,
Very interesting photo. Seems like it was done with at least 0.7 underexposure, or even more (1.0). A bit strange colors (perfect white though), but I like the image as it is. Not the everyday type landscape.
Congrats and tfs. Best wishes from Your Hungarian friend, László
