Hello Ho,

Like of a picture from Ireland of england.
Nice coloured picture whit beautiful colours and sky.
Good composition and pov.


Fantastico paesaggio marino, splendida composizione (per te un classico) con la perfetta suddivisione cielo,mare e terra, ognuno di questi elementi può definirsi più bello del'altro, il cielo dalle nuvole ventate, il mare dalle spumeggianti onde e la terra con i suoi colori sgargianti, eccellente nitidezza, magnifici i colori e la luminosità. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Sumon,

Another photograph that looks straight out of a travel brochure. You are the best advertisement for visiting your country. A spectacular seascape with the mountains on the side, the delicious looking waves, and the beautiful clouds in the sky.


You will soon be blessed with a wonderful winter...it is nothing for you to be aware of as you do images all year long and I look forward to winter in NZ! This is simply beautiful as a fall image Tony. Just gorgeous...Whatever gear you have and whatever settings you have...don't change them!

Very fine landscape, Tony!
This is a real "wish I were there" shot :-)
The fluffy clouds, blue sky, turquoise sea and green-covered cliffs all add up to Paradise!
Crisp and detailed, wonderful colours, superb DOF.

Very well done,


Hello Tony,

I am so interested to see how green your cliffs are. The greenery goes almost down to the sea!
A beautifully composed seascape with excellent colours and warm light reaching the facing cliffs.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

What is happening!
I tried to send this to you and the site went down! Now, when did this happen before!! Is it something to do with posting to New Zealand! Has all been okay at your end?

Hi good friend Tony,
Outstanding seascape again and a beautiful one at that. The wooly clouds looks fantastic and compliments that surfy waters so beautifully. Excellent POV to portray this charming view and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Tony,
Like a painting this coastal landscape is well composed with brushstrokes of various types of cloud in the blue sky and ocean rollers, contrasting with the late summer greens on the cliffs.
TFS this lovely view,
