Hi Achim,
i think i recognise this from Selens post a while back...it's an awesome looking place. Great colours and very good exposure too, personally i would have liked a little more space to the right towards the open sea, but thats just personal preference...nicely done and thanks for sharing!

Hallo Achim
A lovely relaxing and colourful scene you shared with us. I like the simple, elements here. The golden coloured sand, the different layers of colour in the water, the clear blue sky and the lonesome rocks in the middle of the frame. A very peacefull and relaxing scene. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Achim,
I remember this place very well :o) It is very good to see it again through your camera. Good DOF, colors and composition. TFS
Best wishes,

Hello Achim,
Interesting combination of geometrical figures in your work; in other words well composed nature photo.
Thanks for sharing

This is such a distinctive natural feature that it is no wonder that so many of us recognize it fro Selen's post. I really like the geometry in your composition... grand curve, and triangles. Color, exposure and sharpness all look great.

Hi, Achim,

this is amazing! it's a perfect display of "against the gravity" here. the light and pretty water and sand seems to lift the heavy hard rocks on top. the composition makes this a very intersting photo indeed. tfs.

Hello achim, Fantastic view and superb shot. Great sorroundings and nice lighting. Ganesh

Hi Achim!
Fantastic capture! Colours, composition and details and amazing. I wish I will see such places someday :)
TFS and have a nice weekend!
Greetings from Lodz,

Hi Achim,

The curve of the beach is an asset to the composition and leads our eyes toward the Pinacle. The different tints of colors are enhanced by the good light. The subject is well frame. have a nice day.


Hi Achim,
I remember this pinacle from a photo from Selen, but taken much further away. This close capture is also very interesting and shows us some more detail of the lava rock. The beach and water color make this look like a tropical beach. The photo is wonderful in color, brightness and clarity.

A very nice pleasing composition with the curve leading the viewer right into the background all with an exceptionally nice exposure showing great detail and vivid colors. Well done Achim.
Paul :)

Hi Achim

An absolute beauty here!
I really like the bold composition here and what it actually does to the scene. Let me elaborate on that:
most people would have focused strictly on the pinacle and added a lot more sky in the frame. Normally, that would have brought a big patch of blue into the scene and nothing more.
You on the other hand kept the pinacle on a side (well visible and off-centered) and focused the attention on the beautiful curve of the beach. As a result, i for one feel actually there, as if i could see this view with my oen eyes. For managing this, i congratulate you!!!

Bravo and TFS

Hola Achim,

Hi Achim,
such an exciting rock well presented in sharpness and clarity. You have given a good emphasis to the texture and the graphical line of the blue shot. Very stylish with nice colours.

Hi Achim, You are generous to show us this untainted beach on Galapagos Island, somewhere very special in this world. The curce of the beach and the tall sharp, unusual spire are good to see on TN. The split between sand and water works well. TFS, Murray.
