Hi James, great landscape shot of this exotic location. I love the hazy warm hue, colours are fabulous. Even from a distance details on the volcano. Great POV.

This is really breathtaking!
WOW! At first, i thought it was taken from a plane...then i read your notes and it suddenly seemed even more impressive!
What a view!
You really needn't appologize...for that kind of haze and distance, the result is impeccable!
The timing here was also fantastic and, besides the great smoke comming out of the crater, you also managed some pretty impressive shadows and highlights on those magnificent crests.
Bravo and TFS

I wonder what the mountain you took this shot from was like... You POV gave you a very good angle and a great DOF of this amazing scenery. Very well composed. It's very impressive. TFS

Very nice presentation of the volcanic island-both the photograph and the note. Colors are remarkable and I think the haze actually works to your favor here.

The sheer scale of this grand view makes it a great image, James. I love the play of light on those fluted sides of the conical volcanic mountains in the distance. The vantage point is really very important here.
Your well written note is highly informative and useful.
Thanks and best regards.

Excellent landscape shot. The haze actually makes the shot more powerful. The smoke from the crater and the ragged mountain slopes with their light and shadow play make it wonderful. You had been to the top of the world it seems. Very nicely composed. Kudos.
I am not disappointed, especially not "VERY disappointed" as you said. Why should I be disappointed? I think everything you do is fascinating. It does seem like a high vantage point. With an eruption every 15 minutes I suspect few days are very clear. It is an interesting shot to be sure. It has an other world feel to it.

Very evocative this landscape!
I like it a lot your POV and the composition made with all the volcanoes, in a very pleasant way.
The wide format stand out the best of this mountains.
I like the nice light there and the colours that it produced.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

The light is very attractive, creating an almost dream like scenery!
Volcanos are fascinating subjects, both because of shape and inherent forces...
Nicely composed image!
