Very beautiful wide angle.
High dynamic range was probably a plus.
TFS Pedro.

Hi Pedro,
excellent shot of the rocky shore.The colours are what works for me in this photo as they are so very mellow looking.The point of view is also very good. Bob

Hi Pedro,
Magnificent effect got with the HDR.
The light at sunset was terrific, and you managed to catch it pretty well.
Textures got on the rocks are very good.
I like so much the composition made with the inclination of the beach.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hi Pedro,

This are the most difficult pictures for taking through the backlight, you did this wonderful, I like this type of compositions with the big stones on the beach, and the reflections in the water, I can enjoy from this picture.

Have a nice day,

This is a realy nice shot with good compositon, but you can sooo tell that it's HDR, it gives it that CGI effect.

It's such a good subject and so well taken, I'd love to see it prior to the HDR work.

Hi, dear Pedro.
Fantastic in its unusualness and beautifulness view and picture. How expressive low clouds and fairy-tally illuminated sky and sea and coast. POV and composition are perfect at high range. BRAVO, and best wishes, my friend.

What an unusal shot for a seascape. I like the detail in the foreground, with the drainage back into the sea to very apparent. The HDR has worked really well. But the only thing here I would say, is that the sun itself is too central... I think it woudl be better off to the right to counter the beach and rocks.

Hi Pedro

Wow. I am rather impressed by the results from this HRD process you refer to. I do not know what it entails or how it works, but I've seen some other photos prepared in this manner as well and I am impressed. Would it perhaps be possibly for you to give me a short summery of the technique?

I really like this composition with the triangular placing of the ocean and the rocky beach which actually forms a rectangle in the lower 2/3 of the horizontal plane. This left the top 1/3 for the colourful and cloudy sunlit sky. The whole picture has a beautiful colour cast and the textures on the rocks are absolutely stunning. The exposure was spot-on ensuring amazing contrasts throughout.

Very well done and TFS.
Friendly regards
