wild,treacherous and astonishing in it´s beauty,the west coast of Portugal near cape Roca is one of my favorites places to photograph or just to admire the never ending movement of waves and gorgeous sunsets
Here,"where the land ends and the sea begins" in the words of poet Luis de Camoes,is really the edge of the world and I feel insignificant face to the vastness and power of Nature!

Firstly Pedro congrats on passing 800 pnts.
Secondly, I feel like I am having an out-of-this-world experience! As I explained to Horia I am not familiar with an ND filter... but I can tell you that the results here are amazing.

I like your PoV and compo. Tfs, Jay

Wow! Dramatic and beautiful! Excellent!

Hi Pedro,
Very nice capture. Lighting in this shot is fantastic with good use of the grad filter. Composition is nicely balanced with good overall sharpness throughout the image.

Hola Pedrö:
Este es un fantàstico atardecer, con una luz y colorido muy especial. Resulta un lugar apacible y un paisaje grandioso que empequeñece al ser humano con su vastedad.
Es una gran compo. Felicitaciones.

Hello Pedro!
Very nice dramatic composition which for me remind landscapes from Tolkien's "The lord of the rings" ;>
Very beautiful colours, good DOF and light.
Best regards,

PS. I will come back here tomorrow with points :)

Hi Pedro,
What a wonderful sight, what a light. You were at the right place at the right moment. To be at the edge of the world is hallucinating.

Hi Pedro

Another splendid seaside view from you! These thinks are slowly but surely becomming a hallmark for you ;)
But again you managed a great job, especially with the exposure here which is just magnificent.
Thanks to that great exposure all the colors here came out charmingly and there are no blown parts in the sky...bravo. I guess the usage of the ND grad was a very good call ;)
Lovely details and tones everywhere and a brilliant composition.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Pedro, wonderful sea landscape with splendid colors of thee sunside, great composition, very well done, have a nice week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Pedro,
beatuful composition. The exposure is excellent. I love the mood you created with the colors and textures.
POV, details and presentation are great.

Hello Pedro,
I like your opening lines describing the west coast of Portugal.."wild, treacherous and astonishing in its beauty". Those words tell the story of your photo as well. The shot evokes an immediate reaction from the viewer. Great technique, I like it.
Very well done.

Hello Pedro , Fantastic landscape shot , Great compositie details colours very good ,tfs Greetings Teunie .

Hi Pedro,
What a spectacular view and the HRD gave you such great details and exposure. I love the way the photo is balanced in color. The warm spot on the rock with the same color sun and sky on a diagonal. The cooler colored ocean with the blue colored sky in an other diagonal. The depth and details are excellent.
