Hi again

I'm posting some more photos from my trips last year. I still have many photos taken in my England and Croatia trips which i want to share with you (aside from the big archive of other landscapes and animal shots from Romania).

This is another shot from Kimmeridge Bay - where i went with my good friend Paul Haynes - a truly inspiring place which i think looks always different and holds unlimited potential for seascape photos.
I think i'll always be craving for a sunset here, but to be true, i can't complain about the mood the clouds have brought to some images.

You can check out some more photos from my England trip here on my website.

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Horia. Back to last spring for you with this seascape of Kimeridge bay. I like the way the picture stars with warm colours in the foreground and ends up grey in the sky . You have handeled the poor light to get the warm colour in the slate and sea weed. i like the straight lines in the pool . wel ldone TFS.

Mr Horia

Its strange my art lecturer at college always used to tell me that there are no true straight lines in nature, well if only I could take him here ! I have stood in this position many a time, too many with Mr Haynes to mention, and you have captured the essence to a "T" as some might say.
Good work all round.


foarte frumos peisajul Horia , la fel ca toate compozitiile tale ,lumina e perfecta , detaliile evidente iar culorile minunate !

Hi Horia,
You chose always a POV that can bring some interesting things as the center of interest.
I like the framing and composition proposed here, well devoted to the rules and very effective.
So good the lighting and details of the things close to the camera. The greens adds some colour accent to the image.
Great work and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Horia,
Fantastic light in this photo. But the perspective is the focus of this image. Everything, specially the lines, points at the horizon. Perfect POV.

Hi Horia,
Excellent picture of this beautiful landscape; good POV and composition, great DOF, sharp interesting details, excellent lighting.

Hello Horia !
Another wonderful shot from you - you are really talented with landscapes. I particularly like the colors, the vertical composition and the POV. The shape of the rocks is unusual, very beautiful, and I also like the touches of green made by the algea. Very well done !

Sorry buddy, Not much time this evening.
But a well deserved :)

Hi Horia, beautiful place, nice warm colours in front part, stones have wonderful design.
Bye Martin

Hi Horia,
A beautiful landscape shot of this rocky bay. Very well composed with very nice natural colours. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Horia

A lovely seascape capture,the foreground looks almost fashioned by man.
Excellent sharpness and detail,well focused.
Well illuminated,the colours appear natural.
You have chosen your POV well and composed the scene beautifully.

Hello Horia,
This image has two attractive aspects for me: firstly it is a well composed view of Kimmeridge bay on a dark and cloudy day. Secondly it shows a fine pattern of cracks in the sea-polished limestone and a line of shallow rock-pools meeting the sea in a fine perspective.
An attractive and interesting image despite the poor light and thanks for sharing it my friend!
Best wishes,

This shot is what inspired to post my latest offering my friend. It is always good to look back on times past and this was indeed a great day from a wonderful place. As always Kimmeridge Bay has given us a landscape full of detail and interest, even in less than perfect conditions for shooting ;o) Hope we can return here again one day..

Hello Horia,
Lovely shot, beautiful natural colors, excellent composition, good sharpness and nice textures.

Hello Horia, Superb landscape shot and the picture way picture is composed. Lovely view. Ganesh

Those lines in the rocks really add an interesting effect to the image. They lead you into the scene. Very nicely done.


Hello Horia,
Nicely done with the wide angle lens. Once again you managed to get a good composition.
Overall sharp. Of course you used a tripod and through the former you were able to get a lot of depth of field. Sharp throughout the image.
I wonder where you focus as the result is accurate?
Maybe you know there's some kind of formula something like (I don't have the characters on the keyboard)
v(hyp)=f2/Fxc. This is actually the distance between the camera and the point where the depth of field begins, taking into account that the focus is on infinity.
So if you focus on v(hyp) the range of depth of field starts at v(hyp)/2 until infinity.
Important parameters are for example focal length(f) and aperture(F).
Well done
