[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

thought i'd have a look back to the summer months when we had some sunshine for something to share today. This is very near to my home, at place i've posted from many times before, Hengistbury Head. It was taken during an evenings stroll after work as i was heading home. In the background is Christchurh Harbour, where many, many different birds feed and live.

I'd like to dedicate this our friend Horia, who has actually been here when he came to stay with me last year...not exactly a seascape i know, but it's the nearest category to it!

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for looking...

Hi Paul. Mary was looking looking at the computer when your picture came on and she said that one of Pauls.
This has such warm colours. With the last few rays of sun on the rocks. From your POV i would have not know it was Hengistbury Head. Good cloud colours. TFS.

Hows the new camera going.

Hi Paul,

This evening we are neighbors.
Splendid scenery with some fabulous colors.
Exceptional detail and clarity.
Have a pleasant Saturday,

Hello Paul,
How are you?:-)
I immediately liked the light on these rocks. A lot of depth in your work as well.
Well done

Cracking shot, Paul!
The colours are magnificent.
Very good clarity too.
The low, golden light is beautiful!

Very well done,


Hello Paul,
Fantastic warm light and a very nice composition, in your particular style. The photo is very dynamic: the stripes on the rocks and the grasses with the warm touches on its tops. Well done!

Your the man Paul. Haven't seen one like this in quite a while. As I have said many times..it is a special talent which you handle well...Absolutely beautiful image!

Hi Paul,

You certainly know how to condense the drama from most any scene. Wow. Light certainly makes the photo. Nice work.

Evelynn : )

hello Paul
very good and beautiful lighting,gives in the picture very good colours,nice and fine output!
thanks for sharing

Hello Paul!
Another fantastic picture with splendid colours and very nice composition! Once again you shown that simple things can be presented in very unique and special way.
Morover, when I was looking for your photo for the first time, my mother came to my room and said (watiching you image) - what a great photo! So this opinion is only my :>
Greetings from cold and grey Lodz!

PS. Many thinks for comment to my photo from Pamukkale. Nice to know that you like some my landscape pictures :)

Hello Paul,
Amazing photo! The warm light on the rocks is gorgeous. The colours in the clouds are also very beautiful. Great depth. Your choice of POV was perfect, also for the composition.

A fine, rocky formation Paul, grandly illuminated with the warm rays of an evening sun, the same also producing a beautiful effect with the clouds in a blue sky, the exaggerated perspective of your customary wide angle enhancing the image. TFS it indeed MF. Horia would love this, I'm sure.

Hi Paul.
I am impressed with your work with filters and wide-angle lens again and again. Every your landscape shot is amazing and this one is no exception. Fantastic sunlight and colours, terrific sky with clouds, excellent choice of POV. Well done as usual and TFS.

Hi Paul!

You present us a majestic spot glowing in the evenening light. The atmosphere is dramatic and I particularly like the superb sky. On my screen the whole picture appears a little bit oversaturated.

Kind regards

Well this is not how i remember it :)
You really got some beautiful weather this time and managed to stay long enough for those extra deep colors...something i never got around to. But i do want to correct that next year ;)
This is a lovely shot, mate and one with a lovely view.
I think most of all i love the clouds - their colors, shape and depth they give to the entire scene. Also, the ultra wide angle of your lens gives them that extra something that makes them so very photogenic!
Further on, there's the rocks with their texture and really warm tones. They contrast very well with the sky and create a very eye-catching element.
Finally, the rest of the landscape completes the scene nicely, but it doesn't dominate or distract it...it simply adds a bit more light and details without overwhelming the composition.
Lovely work mate! Thanks a lot for this beautiful dedication!

Cheers and have a great week!

How did you get the light so correct, Paul?
I keep saying this come here, and I'll organize a photography workshop for myself!
Love your shots, bro!
