Hi Tony!

What a pleasure to look at this natural and wild countryside! The atmosphere is crystal clear, I can feel the healthy air as if I would breath it myself. The coast seems to rest in a peaceful and calm condition.

Kind regards

Hello Tony, perfect landscape shot in all aspects. TFS. Regards,

Is this the result of low tides??? hmmm...if so then they are at a peak high and low which is when us folks who lived on the NorCal coast used to go Abalone hunting..now considered a rare prize...Wonderful image 'tony and a nice dedication!

Hi Tony,
A lovely scenery for Selen. Superb composition and very nice view. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Tony
What an excellent shot and beautiful landscape! I love the POV and perspective and overall to see a beautiful beach free of human traces. That's something impossible to see here in Spain, I think.
Magnificent job, my friend.
Thank you very much for sharing.

Hi Tony,

The clarity of this beautiful landcape is outstanding. It is such a pristine scene which looks untouched by man. The shades of browns and greens and the perfect blue sky are beautiful. A superb composition - I'm sure your photos are making many of us want to visit New Zealand.


Hello Tony,

Good dedication to Selen.

Nice landscape with beautiful colors and pov.

Hi Tony, splendid landscape, great composition with fantastic colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi My Good Friend TONY,

Every time you give me a dream through images..
The lovely coastline in natural moods is in it's finest smiles..and a dear dedication to Selen.
For this cool shot, my smiles.
All the best, dear friend.


HI Tony,
Techincally a wonderful shot, aesthetically a superlative one!I love what you call, the simplicity of this shot!

Hi Tony
What a large beach you captured here, it seems to go on forever. The water seems to draw your eye to the background nicely. The clusters of rocks seem to add nice interest to your image. This looks like a beautiful place.

Hi Tony,

I've been out of town for much of the past 3 months but am back now for the summer. I'm glad to see that you are still posting landscapes/seascapes. They seem to be rarer these days on TN. I love your seemingly deserted beaches. This is a really sharp image.

I'm pretty sure your camera has an auto-bracketing feature. You might try to take multiple shots of a scene like this and clone in or blend two of them so that the sky/clouds could be better exposed.... just a thought.

Evelynn : )

Great composition and worthy dedication. The dof here is spot on and I really like the balance of the different elements in the shot to create a really great image.

Hi Tony,

I think landscape shots are pne of the most difficult kinds in photography for the sheer number of elemenst the photographer has to think of to bring in a balanced manner in the composition.Pankaj our mutual friend on TN also mentioned this recently in his post.
This shot you present is proof of this very fact.

The mountains afar, the sandshore, water and the rock formation in FG and the bl;ue sky provide fantastic combinations in this composition.Perfect exposure, colours and lighting in this shot with a nice PoV managing a fine DoF.Very well done.
TFS & Cheers


Hello Tony,

Just what Jamesp said and I'm agree with that opnion:"
The dof here is spot on and I like the balance of the different elements in the shot to create again a really great image"

Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day and TFS BOB

Hola Tony,
Es un placer y relax contemplar estos preciosos paisajes que nos muestras con tanta elegancia. Muy bonito el punto de vista con una iluminación de lo mas agradable. Un cordial saludo
José Ramón

Agréable paysage bien équilibré.
Bonne journée.

Hello Tony,

You are definitely the landscape master, my friend!!! You know how to choose effectively the POV and how to build working composition... The elements here are well balanced and the colors very natural... I like very much that "simplicity"... :-)

Great job and TFS!


Hello Tony,

This is a very beautiful coastal scene.
There is a great divergence in the shapes and textures.
It is so serene and unspoilt, and the sand and pools, so tempting. Do you have a little paddle after taking your photographs?

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

This is a natural beauty landscapes Tony... I am sure selen like it...Thanks to put TN...Kind regards, Leyla

Hi Tony
Simple & effective composition with nice contrast, colors, and detail.

Como siempre te digo Tony, eres un privilegiado de vivir en esa bella tierra. Yo pienso que disfrutaría mucho por allí con mis macros jeje.
Captaste bien el espectáculo de esa bella y enorme playa, supogo que con marea baja. Un excelente trabajo con el color.

Hello Tony,
What a beautiful view of this coastal inlet. I expect it is low tide as the sand looks so smooth. It looks very peaceful and untouched by man! Excellent POV and great DOF showing very sharp details and lovely colours. I like the rectangular size of this capture too. Well done!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Tony,
exciting, emotionally touching beauty of untouched nature. Unforgettably beautiful landscape presented in perfect light, looking like a precious painting. I love the deep contrasts and the slow flowing motion.
With thanks, and all my best wishes.
