[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the Pacific Ocean meeting the western shoreline of south central Costa Rica. I was flying from the Osa Penninsula in a smaller commuter Cessna at low elevation when the waves meeting the land caught my eye. Taken with a 5meg. point and shoot the image needed a good amount of prep using PSE4 to saturate the colors.

Thank you all for taking a look and sharing your thoughts. Richard

hi vincent
i like this country
good picture of the littoral

best regards
see you soon for other pictures

Oh man... I've got vertigo! I actually feel dizzy! It is a very interesting shot Richard. The saturation you gave to the colors is effective. I'd be tempted to crop off the top bit where the whites of the waves are overexposed. Thanks for sharing... I have to go lie down!! : )

Beautiful picture!I like the details and the POV
of this lovely shot. Well done!! Carme.

Hello Richard,
Wonderful point of view!
Pleasant composition with good details, in particular I notice the rythm of the surf washing the shore...
Attractive colours!

I think saturation is important here because you are showing all of the spectrum of blue green in the water and green on shore with a buffer of earth tone. Very nice.


Preciosa toma Richard. Es de esas fotos que tienen vida y crean sentimientos. Aparte del buen encuadre y bonitos colores, a mi me hace soņar con esa tierra. Una foto estupenda. Saludos : J. Ignasi Tejedor

hi richard,
beautiful shot, the pov is very good, lovely natural colours, liked the composition too,
tfs & regards

An amazing littoral shot, Richard. I love the hues of that shoreline and the gradations of blue within the water. Whatever PP you did paid off handsomely -- it looks great. Of course, no small amount of the impact is your composition, too. You have some wonderful lines here.
