Hello Tony,
An impressive rock to the right side!
Interesting to see how it has been shaped by the sea over the years...
Pleasant composition with the beach, good foreground interest!

Hi Tony,
i like the way the edge of the lapping water leads the eye further into the frame here, and the large cliff looming on the right is quite dramatic. The reflected blue of the sky in the wet sand is great too.

Hello Tony,
So wide-screen! I like this nubilous sky and calm beach.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Tony,
Wonderful shot of the Piha Beach and you have captured the atmosphere beautifully. The tranquil environment and the charming setting is illustrated well with the blue sky, the gigantic cliff and the rocky FG. The sheen on the water gives a fine effect. A wonderful place to be in and Jane should feel proud for the dedication. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Tony,

Thank you so much - I love it!! Believe it or not I haven't seen a blue sky in weeks and this one is lovely. All my favorites - the mountains, water, the shore and the rocks - in a wonderful composition. Just beautiful.

Hello Tony

A wonderful landscape shot ,I think Jane will be thrilled with it.The clarity is very good with terrific focus and sharpness.The lighting is very well handled.Nicely composed in the frame.The water and the sky seem to balance each other nicely.TFS


Although this image is sharp and the color looks very natural, the composition feels a bit unbalanced to me. It is very heavy on the right side and kind of weak on the left. Perhaps a better POV would have been to get closer and lower to the foreground rocks to make them a stronger element in the scene.

Hi Tony,

That's a beautiful bay. Sand, rocks, silence and gras. All what a human need to relax. I like the blue colourshine on that sand where the sea withdrew himself. A very nice composition. Regards and TFS Bob

Hi Tony,
You always seem to get a crystal clear and very sharp image. The light here is stunning. Well composed and beautiful colors.

Hi Tony,
What a superb image of this wonderful deserted beach. The composition is lovely with the rocks in the foreground and the reflection of the sky colour in the shallows. Impressive.
