Hi Tony, an other splendid sea landscape with a wonderful lonely tree, very well done, have a great week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Tony, superb photo Ciel, ground and sea combines perfectly, right damage the presence of this tourist on the right but thank you to divide it with us.


hi Tony,

I have rather seen this tree (-:. A beautiful sea- landscape Tony. Colours are wonderful. Just what Mecamich said, it was be better to remove those tourist. Anyway POV and BG are oké. Regards, have a nice day and TFS Bob

Beautiful seascape Tony.
Nicely composed and the time of day gives pleasing light.
I did a WS to add a tad more contrast and also sharpened a click along the way. The original is beautiful just wanted to compare.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Tony,

It's nice to see that lonely and lovely tree again. I'm wondering what time of day this was taken to get the wonderful blues. I read the other comments and had to look for the tourists! They give a perspective of the size of the cliff. Nice scene.

Hi Tony,
Another lovely seascape from you with a good POV and composition. Good exposure handling and colors.
You are teasing me with your seascape photos, considering my being in a city far away from the sea... this is not fair :o)
Best wishes,

Hi Tony,
Another great composition with beautiful colors and outstanding light. The waters and sky are such a pleasing shade of blue. Angy's tree adds interest to the shot.
Best wishes,

This is a lovely image with all the different shades of blue. I like the movement that can be seen in the water. Nice image.

Hi Tony,
Wonderful seascape again and majestic setting. So much detail and beautiful colour tones here and the atmosphere and mood is aptly presented. Love the surf and the effect it creates with the splash. Sure Angelina would have loved the lonely tree and the beautiful surrounding - hey, can I see her there in a blue outfit?? ha ha ha. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Tony,
It is like a seascape painting! Wonderful tones of blue in the sea and the sky! The tree is taking a bow to a wonderful artist!
Angelina must be very impressed!
Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Beautiful beach peisage.

Hello Tony,

What another remakable composition from you, my friend! It is obvious that this little tree is our little star! The horizon is perfecly horizontal and the composition and the POV you took are splendid!

Great job and TFS!


Hi Tony,
Very beautiful view.Great colours, POV and perspective.Well compo.TFS.


This is beautiful Tony. There is a lake here in Quebec where a lonely tree stands like this one. It has been there for years in its solitude :) Again, this is such a beautiful scenery with great details and natural exposure. Thanks,

Hola Ho. Una exelente fotografia y muy buena dedicatoria a la Sra. Angelina. Creo que se lo merece. Me agradan los finos detalles y la iluminacion lograda aqui Ho. Saludos Luis52.

Hi Tony,

I think you chose a nice composition. That lone tree is an effective focal point. A couple of things that bother me a bit (at least on my monitor) are the cyan cast to the whole image and the barrel lens distortion at the horizon. I did a quick workshop though it is difficult to work with such a small image....not the original.

Evelynn : )

Hi Tony

Beautiful!! Great POV and light. The shutter speed was ideal to capture the waves!
