This one is dedicated to Paul Haynes for all his incredible landscape images. He's been a huge inspiration to me and one day I would love to be able to capture shots as good as his! :-)

This is my first proper landscape shot on TN! :-)
I thought I'd post something different so found this shot from Wales in my archives.

This place is called Llanbedrog and is famous for the iron man up on the headland (not shown). This was taken with my trusty old Canon S3 IS at late evening after a lovely meal in one of the restaurants there :-)

I hope you like it!

Hi Joe,

I love the tones of colour here and the composition is very good too, with a big open view, lots of FG interest and a great mountainous skyline. This is indeed s beautiful part of Wales that yout have really done justice here. Well done and thanks again, into me faves she goes..

Hello Joe,
We are neighbours today!
A fine N wales landscape taken in the evening with a good use of the light to show this bay from a fine POV in a great composition to include the mountains in the BG.
Brings back memories of my time in Wales and I can say that this is very good in Welsh - Da iawn!
Great tribute to one of our foremost landscape photographers on TN, Paul!
TFS this fine image,

Hello Joe,
This is a wonderful view of the Welsh coastline in evening light. The colours are very beautiful and I like the thin Cirrus clouds across the sky. A very fine composition too.
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Hello Joe,
Splendid dedication to a great photographer, your image has a calm and peaceful atmosphere. You have composed it very well and the serene scene is one of great beauty, thank you joe, great job.

Hi Joe,
Great to see you post a seascape photo. This is a beauty and had a kind of tropical feel to it. The subtle colors are great and the curve of the shoreline acts as a good leadline.

Hi Joe,
It's a very nice dedication for Paul. I'm not used to seeing landscapes from you, but this looks very good. Well composed and exposed with very good color tones. TFS
Best wishes,

Hi Joe,
Great landscape shot and great dedication to an landscape expert on TN.
Well done OwlMan:-)
TFS and have a nice weekend.


Great job Joe, beautiful sky.
Back this evening,

It's like a high definition HD format! And quite a different technique than Paul's as well...Paul's almost look unreal in their start reality...quite the conflicting statement but it helps me to understand the differing perspectives...Nicely done Joey!

this is a perfect landscape.
beautifully composed.
thanks for showing us a part of wales.


Hi Joe,
A nice capture of this beautiful seascape. Superb composition and a lovely composition. A very good dedication for Paul. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Joe,

Never expected to find a landscape from you! This proves that you are a fine all-around photograher. Beautiful scene which is very well composed. It has such a peaceful atmosphere. I love the sky with the wonderful clouds, the mountains in the background, the lovely reflections, the water and the interesting foreground.

Hi Joe. this is somthing different for you but it shows the talent you have with a camera in your hands. I think this is a stuning eve seascape. I Like the blue colour it has. you hace a god POV showing the bay. well done TFs.
Have a good weekend.

Are you not out taking pictures at the moment or is it the football. !!

Bellissimo paesaggio, ottimi POV e composizione, perfetta l'esposizione con la poca luce a disposizione e una buona resa dei colori, un'immagine d'impatto emotivo per l'atmosfera di quiete dopo il tramonto che hai colto con grande maestria. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Joe.
Your first on TN landscape picture is very nice. There are many more beautiful places and their images. However, you managed to select a very nice POV, compose image perfectly and reflect amazing lights, reflection and colours. Well done and TFS. I wish you many new landscape pictures so fine as this one.
P.S. I have only one landscape shot here too : ))).

Hi Joe

I'm a bit behind with my critiques again (i was away this weekend) but i wouldn't miss your debute in landscapes :)
A wonderful dedication to Paul and i think this is a good beginning for you to start thinking of getting one of those ultra wide angles and start shooting some of the nice places you keep traveling in :)

A very nice and moody shot with this sunset here. The clouds and colors in the sky are gorgeous and add to the scene a lot.
However, i think the nice curve of the bank in the lower part is the element that makes this such a great composition and a beautiful shot.
Lovely work...keep on doing it :)

Bravo and TFS
