[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is possibly my favorite shot from my trip to England.

I don't know if it's because the weather conditions changed and gave us (Paul and i) that great break above the horizon.

I don't know if it's because Paul lent me his terrific ultra wide Sigma 10-20mm lens.

Or if it's because this was the very last photo of a FANTASTIC day of shooting and exploring some amazing places with a great friend.

All i know is that i love it and i can only hope to go again there next year and have some more.

Hope you like it, too, and this time, please check these links for more photos:

O alte minunatie de peisaj, cu planta surprinsa, parca asa din greaseala, dar care contrasteaza perfect cu albastrul cerului.
PS. Acest WE il fac la socri in Oradea, daca iti incape in program, dau o cafea!

Hallo Horia
Although the sky looks moody this is a great portrayal of the ambience and the tranquillity of nature. A very peaceful and relaxing scene to look at, with striking colours. The yellow flowers on the foreground, cancels the somber atmosphere making this and refreshing image and very pleasing to look at. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards

Hello Horia
A fine scene taken with a good eye....BUT.
Most of all congratulations on being featured in Last weeks Amatuer Photographer Gallery and recieving the Editors Choice.

Hi Horia. You kept this one for a long time . I must say i do like it a lot my self. For me its the sky that makes this a fantastic picture of our local coast line. And such a well know spot in Dorset. Well done TFS.

Ciao Horia. Excing perspective and spectaculare light. Anazubg colours too and right spaces management.

Hi Mate,
aaaah this brings back very fond memories! Right at the end of a very long but enjoyable day! I don't think my lens can take any credit for this, you gotta know where to stand how to operate your box of tricks! Its a super composition here, i love that long sweep of the cliff edge and the subtle diffused light, probably the best we saw all day eh? Great shot mate, well done, lovgely to see it. I hope we can do this again too!
(thank you so much for adding a link to my site too, really very kind of you mate, i need to put a link to yours on mine!)

Cok etkiliyeci bir manzara..Kutlarim Horia

Hi Horia,
Great to see another photo from your trip to Paul's country. I really like the muted light here. It gives the photo a very equal exposure and the pleasure to view. I hope that palying with this lens will make you save some money and buy your own. You will really enjoy it having it in your bag.
The room between the headland and the horizon is just right, it still has space enough not to get connected. A view with the headland above the horizon would not have worked.

Hi Horia,

The simplicity of your composition gives this image a lot of impact. You used that lens to great advantage with a strong foreground element and a grand sweeping curve leading to the sun and clouds. That lens does magic with clouds. Lovely work again.
