Hi Tony!

It really looks perfect, so rich in details many things to watch: the foreground full of action, that wonderful cliff on the left, the little rocks on the right and the beautiful little clouds in the back, all framing the perfectly straight wave lines! And the clear blue sky showing the really good weather... Such a nice composition Tony, TFS and making this awful day here with rain all day brighter through the monitor!


Hi Tony,
"The man of youngest land on earth" ;>. A superb capture of this beautiful seascape. Superb composition and lovely colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Tony, just about perfect, great details and wonderful colours, the clarity of the water and seaweed is first rate. Fine work tfs

Hi Tony,

Just as beautiful and perfect as all of your other seascapes. I love the water rushing against the rocks and the row of perfect clouds just above the horizon. The colors are breathtaking.


Hello Tony
what a wonderful scene you show us here,
Perfect composition,exposure and POV.Superb shot my friend.


Hello Tony,
Oh to have the perfect day here soon!
What a beautiful site you have shared with us, excellent pov, with the waves cresting and the rocks, beauitful color in the sky. TFS

Una giornata limpida per uno splendido paesaggio marino, buona la composizione, graqnde ricchezza di dettagli e magnifici i colori e la luminositÓ. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

This one appears to have a bit of the Paul H Seascape touch to it...and his Canon prolly cost him 4x the one you have....although there is something to money in glass...this is a fine image Tony. I am happy with all from "down there" in this way. It gives me notions that perhaps in another life I shall visit...unless I am granted some rescue from this medical pain.....

Hello Tony, my dear friend,
It was really perfect day with a excllent scene from O'Neill beach. I am happy when I see your new shots from beautiful nature of New Zealand. White of low wavies of sea, blue of sky, green of vegatation also splendid colored. Nicely composed. rock on left, possible small island, great for composition. Thanks for sharing and showing this beauty.
have a nice new perfect day.
your friend, Ahmet

Hello Tony, another one of your perfectly done composition! Nice place, sharp details and good exposure, thanks my friend!


Excellent display of a wonderful perfect day Tony. The wave is pleasing to look at ponding on that moldy foreground. The rock make a good perspective in this composition. Regards. Jusni

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

Hi Tony,
Another great shot with a very well lit and clean sky and details like the clouds sitting in the horizon.

Great composition!!


Hello Tony,

This must be a perfect day. Sun, blue sky and a little breeze? But oh so dangerous about the UV A and B. Agian a very nice land/seascape. When you see this photograph you get sense to be there. It's sparkling. And take a look to teh baseline of the clouds at the horizon. One horizontal sharp line. Very special and maybe unique. Greetings and TFS BOB

Hi my friend Tony,
Another wonderful landscape shot my friend!
TFS. Cheers,

Hi Tony, It's really a perfect day, splendid light for this wonderful seascape with fantastic colors and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

I keep saying this to myself, should I reach out an touch the water?This is so real, and such a beautiful, warm and simple composition, my friend!You rock!

Looks beautiful Tony, a nice break from the dark dreary skies lately here in Central Texas..Some sunshine ahead for this weekend though :)
Well done,

Hello Tony,
I like the surfers waves coming in here, framed by the rocks in an excellent composition. Though it looks sunny it must have been early or late in the day as the light was weak. Even so you made good use of it and avoided a steamy look to the waves with a sufficiently high shutter speed.
Thanks for sharing another fine seascape,

Hi Tony, what a stunning day indeed - my fiancee keeps trying to persuade me that we should emigrate to New Zealand - with the evidence of scenes like this it's at times a compelling argument!! Great shot, lovely composition, such amazing summer colours!

Thanks for sharing such an inspiring shot! Doug

Tony it is more than perfect, it is paradise on earth! Superb, I love the low clouds at the background, adding movement with the waves which are also white with foam. The composition is superb too with the rock both at an angle of the frame. Thank you for this beautiful sight!


Hello Tony,

A perfect day for photography, I wish it was like that here!
The water always looks so beautifully inviting! Do you find yourself tiptoeing in for a quick swim?

I like the swirling motion of the tide in the f/g. Then the eyes are drawn via the wave-caps to the majestic focal point of the rock.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Tony,

I really like the movement in the water here and the position of the rocks in the foreground and the mound in the background work really well together. Lovely colours and light.


Hi Tony,
Yes, another perfect day in NZ! I like the blues of sky and water mixing with the white of the waves and clouds. Well balanced composition with the forground rocks and BG knoll all sharply detailed. Tfs Richard

Another stunner Tony!
I can't even remember the last day we had here which was as great as this!
Excellent composition and POV.
Sharp and crisp.
Great light.
Do you ever use filters? Your skies and FGs are always perfectly exposed!
Well done my friend,


Hi Tony!

How's life down there? It's always so surprising to see your wonderful summertime impressions when I come back from a ski tour.

Your title suits the picture very well, not only because of the subject the picture is showing, but also because of the manner you took it: technically perfect. Moreover, it's so pleasant and healing to look at it.

Thank you so much and kind regards


Hello Tony,
You have developed into an expert in depicting water in the most attractive way!
So natural when the Pacific washes the shores of Waitakere and the white surf come in an never ending rythm...

Hi friend Tony,
Another magnificent seascape and I like the rolling surf and effects on the water. Fabulous details and colours with the blue sky setting a fine tone to the image. the low lying clouds at the distance look superb. Excellent POV, DOF and composition. Kudos.

Ahhh...it does look like the perfect day. I can imagine sitting there listening to the waves roar in and hearing gulls and smelling the air...yes, you've created a real experience with this photo. WOW!

Hi Tony

I could do with a perfect day like this. I long for some blue sky and sun instead of rain. Beautiful light here and I love the textures in the FG rocks



Hello Tony
Your right is sure looks like a beautiful warm day. Your so lucky to live so close to the ocean. I can smell the salty air in the breeze here. You've captured the moment so well.

Hello Tony,

How do you think you can avoid us all coming there? This just too beautiful. All in focus, very good colours.

Hi Tony.
Once more great seascape picture. You have many amazing place and transform this situation into superb pictures. It seems to me only one minor moment is present (for my taste) it is a bit deep shadows. However, colour palette and lights, crisp details and sharpness and of course composition and farming of the image are excellent.

Hi Tony!

Beautiful country. I saw many photos before and I'm fascinated. Especially coastlines ( as You showed on this and other photos) are very attractive for me. I very like landscape too. i have many captures on TE gallery. Beauatiful shot ( as others). Well done!

Best regards

Hello Tony,
I must say that I truly enjoy all of your coastline images, they are breathtaking in their raw natural beauty. The power and awesome reality of the natural wonders of this earth is seen in every one. Thank you for posting these outstanding landscapes! Best Regards Thomas
