I have always been fascinated with these monolithic formations in the sea in this part of the world, James. They look awe-inspiring, jutting out of water like some grim sentinels keeping a vigil over the surroundings.
This is a beautiful capture from a low angle. Going by the boats in view, this area in Vietnam must be a great tourist attraction.
Have a nice trip to Libya. I am sure you would come back with some great pictures to share with us here.
All the best.

Wonderful landscape shot. Those gigantic rocks rise from the water so majestically. I like the strace of your boat on the water which lends a different perspective. The subdued colours and the haze looks so natural. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Just think if the whole world was like that, it would be hard getting from one place to another. Really great shot of Halong Bay. Have fun in Libya, be safe. :)

Hi James, a wonderful composition of these amazing rock formations. Perfect POV with great reflections. You have caught the light well giving subtle soft colours. Beautiful composition. Enjoy Libya.

Another wonderful lacdscape from you, my friend!
The look of these two imense and solitary rocks here is amazing and the POV from where you shot this is exceptional.
The contrat between them and pretty much everything else is impeccable and the details on them are great.
The colors are ok, considerring the not-so-good light and weather.
I understand that you wanted to keep their reflections in the frame, too, but i'm still wonderding of how a vertical compo. would have looked. :)
Oh...almost fergot...having also a chemistry major, i really liked your note ;)
Bravo and TFS

This is so interesting! I have never seen something like that! It is nice to see that those landforms are classified in the World heritage list like the mountain here close to where I live :) Those places always have something very special and these islands certainly are! This is a technically good picture with excellent notes. Have a nice trip! Thanks,

this is so special. Well seen in half of it under the sea. Very exciting indeed. I could inmagine this. i have seen a lot in Langkawi island. Yet to venture.
such abeautiful karst with the reflection on. the ripples gives a good artistic effect and this style enhance the shot a lot- aethetically.
