An excellent composition - great mediterranean blues and greens - so much more intense than northern colours (struck me on my recent visit to Italy). Great use of sight-lines to create an excellent shot.

This image was very well done. I love what you did with the slow shutter speed. Fantastic composition. Well done.
The lovely blues were attracting my eyes!
I like the point of view looking along the shore, adding fine lines to the composition...
I notice the rocky shore that makes me wonder if this is a part of a reservoir?

Nice landscape of this place. The sky is ok for me, my polarizer make strong blue hue. The composition follows the rule of 1 / 3 and I like the diagonal rocks. I like the effect of the slow shutter speed on the sea.

very nice work my friend, i see you have been experimenting with long exposure seascapes! Personaly i like the strength of the blue hues here, they contrast very nicely against the pale rocks. Great POV giving you huge depth too. Some people will say they don't like the effect of the long exposure, but i'm sure you can guess my thoughts on the matter :o)

Your name just came up by me in a critique and it involved water images....what a coincidence...water seems to be the theme..I wonder if this is the hundredth monkey effect? I have not really read the book but I think I understand the principles behind it...A super shot and keep on coming back with more sir Horia! I miss your pics and visits!

The effect of the shutter speed with the CP filter created a very interesting and almost sureal effect. The fact that you can see through the water and do not see a distinct line from the water give the rock shoreline a sort of floating effect.
The composition is wonderful where the diagonal line of the shore guide the eye perfectly.

Very good contrast. The composition and the colours are excellent and very interesting.

A beautiful view of this rocky coastline with the sky reflected in the water. A fine composition from a nice POV and in lovely colours. I'd love to see the archipelago of Croatia!
TFS and regards,Ulla

You're traveling a lot, so we are expecting plenty of new material soon.
I like a lot the composition you present us today, built from the greens up at the mountain to the algae into the water.
I like also the effect and intensity got with the polarizer.
Great work and thanks for share it.

This is very blue blue :-) Last day of holidays? I hate it :-) Leaving some beautifull place and returning to work and grey, cold days of winter... Fortunatelly we can plan next holidays!
Blue is great on your photo. Fascinating thing is that sky has got exactly the same colour as water. Great composition and fantastic place.
Watch out! My no.20 arrived :-)

very nice shot, beautiful vivid colors, the blues are amazing, good sharpness and depth of field, excellent composition and good low point of view, nice textures in the rocks.
I do like the colors and the composition and the calm, peaceful feeling of the evening. The polarizer really added to that feeling. I see you have caught the slow shutter speed bug. I am not overly fond of the effect in most cases and am not sure about it here. I am glad you had a nice trip (except for the food poisoning part... yuck!.
Evelynn : )
These reflections with the slow expo turned out very very wonderful! Light and dark parts are very balanced in the picture. I traveled through that area and passed that border too near Neum some years ago. (If you have a chance it's much worth planning your route through Bosnia-Herzegovina along the Neretva river, that's a photo paradise!)
So to get to the end of the story these shores are where we ended up in Croatia and were left with our mouths open when we saw the huge mountain cliffs with these amazing blue tones, so I know it's no photo manipulation! Nice to see it again so well presented. TFS!
The exposure is not balanced well...you overexposed the rocks to sort of obtain the blurred water movement, while the green of the trees is too dark...just looks very unnatural.
I can't really tell where exactly you made the focus, due to the size, but it should have been on the rocks close to the water...if it was there...well you have some camera shake...you should try using a remote.
