Hi Tony,

Another beautiful scene. A special treat for those of us who are land-locked in Arizona. The turquise water is marvelous - reminds me of the ocean in Bermuda. Your usual superb composition with the blue sky and the clouds over the rock.

Hi Tony,
a great POV that guides the eye out to sea after scanning that impressive looking headland. The colour of the water is beautiful and the patterns in the shorebreak are fascinating, lovey shot!
tfs and have a great weekend,

You and Paul today do seascapes with various curves and mixtures of texture, colour and form. And cut off angles make it an enigma!

Fantastic timing here, Tony!
This beautiful and well composed land/seascape is enhanced by the marvellous pattern of the water's edge, the broken wave causing a fine lacework pattern that decorates most of the front of this image. This is a really attractive image and thanks for sharing it Tony!
Have a good weekend,

Hi Tony,

You see Tony, to me a beach is always filled with people, lots of people. And there you are with paradise, with empty beautiful beaches where you can walk along, contemplate et breathe! Fantastic and superb are the two words that come to my mind looking at this sunny picture with great colours and a fantastic blue sky. thank you!

Hi Tony,
A nice capture of this beautiful sea/landscape. Excellent composition. Here I like the water colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Gorgeous water here Tony. The leading white edge is so cool. Good timing. Nicely composed, wonderfuly sharp and colorful.
Tfs Have a great weekend yourself! Richard

The colors! WOW! Such amazing colors!
That's the first thing that strikes me here. A rich palette of blues and greens - and everything in between. Wonderful lighting to pick up the subtleties from one shade to the next.

Hey Tony,
I'm actually planning to do only landscapes, apart from elephants,going forward, so inspired am I with your work!
yet another perfectly flawless shot!

Colors and contrast are so amazingly live, I just feel like jumping in there! Composition superb as always, with those clouds only above the rock and nowhere else. Very nice job, TFS!

Hi Toni!

With the help of this picture, I was able to live very different natural beauties this week-end: my snowy mountains live and a delightful seascape on the other side of the world over internet. Thank you for this!

Kind regards

Hello Tony,

All ingredients are present for a great landscape and sea sight.
Quality and sharpness are fantastic, also your composition and colours.
Very well done.

Best regards,

Hello Tony,
I'm always amazed by the fine clarity of colours in your beachside captures!
Seems like NZ to some extent has the same kind of light as we have up here...
Another well balanced composition!

Hello Tony,

My first point of view at this photo were the expanding waves on the beach. Just an umbrella. The colour of the sea is lovely. The clarity is famous. Compo is also oké. To show us a part from the little bushes on the right, you have created depth in the photo. The white clouds behind the big rock is an artistic show of mother nature. The diagonal line on the rightside from the rock into the sky and then the white clouds are amazing or.....luck (-: Well done. Greetings and TFS BOB

Hi Tony,
i can imagine that being there and watching that ocean.. the world has no end.
great composition: a very good mix of natural colours. Good POV and DOF. I can´t stop looking at that sky!! Good work!! very well presented.
have a nice day

Hi Tony,

I love the foam patterns in the water, particularly the line passing across the water's edge. Also, the colours on the water are really striking and you've captured them so well. Really nice shot, really well put together.


Splendido paesaggio marino, eccellenti POV e composizione, bellissime onde, bellissime linee, magnifici colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hello Tony. Another stunning shot with the wave hitting the shore captured well. I like the clear water against the pleasant blue sky. The rock have very interesting texture with green on top. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Hi friend Tony,
Another outstanding seascape with such wonderful colours and details. The saturated tones compliments so well and I like the effects on the surf. The huge rock looks grand and juts in elegantly into the sea. Excellent POV to portray this majestic scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Splendid and perfect landscape shot of this beautiful coastal area with nice details, lighting and framing. TFS. Regards,

Hi Tony.
Thanks for net true masterpiece from you. It is really amazing place and so wonderful picture of it. It is difficult to comment so outstanding work. Bravo, my friend. And my congratulations.

Hi Tony,
Wonderful view and composition mf.
Beautiful colors in both sea & sky, and I like the timing/look of the surf line as it breaks forward..
Well done!

Hi Tony,Beautiful place,beautiful photo.
Best regards,

Hello Tony.,

Fantastic landscape. Splendid colors and composition. It has the 3D feeling of wideangle shot. Did you use wide angle converter?

Hallo Tony
Today I played eni meni myni mo in your portfolio. There are just so many and they are all so beautiful and pleasing to look at. We have had heat wave temperatures rising as high as 49C on some places these last couple of days. Looking at this refreshing scene makes me forget for a few moments about the sweltering heat and uncomfortably conditions we had. How I would love to be on this unspoilt beach right now. The seascape and part of nature you have captured here is awesome. This is my kind of photograph. Relaxing, inviting, unpretentious and pleasing to the eye and the whole psyche.
Best regards.
