There is NO WAY you could have done a lower point of view on this one Niek. I know because I lived in areas exactly like this and I can feel it and the shot. You did well..Photos of the California and Oregon cliffy areas with flora on top and rest way down below would take a lens nobody owns:-) Or perhaps an airplane...although I did see a YouTube of a man who flew a radio craft over Noyo Harbour once...too jerky and it was video...Excellent POV!

Hi Niek. I was going to say i like the POV as we can see some wild flower on the ground from where you took this fine seascape. Also i like the way you have included the trees on the right. Natural looking colours and a fine view. TFS.

I don't see where the mistake is in this picture. The only little "mistake" could be the very black trees on the right. Beside this, the picture not only is perfect, but also marvellous. I like the detailed foreground very much and the delicate pastel colours of the sky are superb. Moreover, the whole atmosphere is so peaceful.

well if i'm honest my first thoughts when i saw this was the position of the horizon too! We do indeed all make mistakes though and this is hardly a big deal when you have such a natural and beautiful view as this. The choice of the framing with the plants in the foreground is great, and the tree on the left fills the middle of the shot perfectly. You created huge depth here! The muted light is also very nice too. Looks like my kinda place, did you manage to get down to the shore at all?
(and yes, i certainly do agree my friend :o)
This is a very beautiful setting my friend and one i hope you got to spend some more time - for yourself and for photography.
The cliffs in the distance act as superb focal points to me and the absolutely gorgeous texture of the small coniferous trees or bushes (i'm not sure what they are) that cover the view up to them dominates the perspective well.
I also have to say that i love the full color of the plants in your immediate FG, too...those leaves in that diffused light look fantastic and fill in that part of the frame superbly.
However, yes, i do feel that there's a bit too much sky...i must be honest. It's probably the lack of contrasting elements there that gives me this feeling...but i do. But don't worry all that much...i'm sure we all have shots like this that on the field look well composed but when we see them bigger, back home, we would have liked them a bit differently. And that's exactly the case here: in my opinion, if you would have lost about 20% of the actual sky here and tilted the camera more down, you would have had it spot on. But again, that's a subjective point of view.
Even so, i'd say this is a good shot of this beautiful coast, By the way, did you get any "red sky sunset" photos from here?
Cheers and TFS

I wonder how you could achieve a lower POV, Niek!Unless you got a rock (which does the trick of faking a lower POV better than the leaves), which I feel would be a very different composition altogether (a la Paul Haynes).This shot is definitely not one you need to apologise about!The greens in the FG and the blurred horizon add a feeling of space (come down to India and you'll know how much one crave for space!!!), while the greyish-blue sky talks of things to come...
Very beautiful shot, my friend!

A fine seaside view with good depth!
F/16 seems effective in creating sharpness all through the frame, with great details in the plants in front and I can even see people on the distant cliffs..?
The thin veil of clouds filters the light nicely!

No way that your point of view is wrong! In artistic presentation there are not only rules you have to follow. I would even say that you have chosen it very well. It gives a very balanced composition and the fine grasses in the front are a very beautiful entrance in your picture. Like alwasy fine and natural colors, what I appreciate a lot in your photos (On TE there are mostly too saturated). Very subtle shut.

Oregon coast is among the most beautiful coast line I have ever travalled on. There so much to see here and each area is so different. I was up there last year for the second time. Your photo certainly proof my point, it is a very beautiful scnerey and well composed photo here. Unfortunately I have not seen this part of it for myself, but there is just too much to see and you can see it all in a few days. thanks
