[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot from Pellinge (an islet outside Porvoo in Finland) taken about a month ago. I tried to make this one the moodiest of all my shots, so that's why it is so dark and all.

PS-work: contrast, saturation, burn & dodge tools and frame.

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

Very fine composition. The rocks themselves with variegated colors and textures suffice to give the picture a complete and highly aesthetic outlook.

Hi Paavo,

You are putting on a clinic on how to fix the lens distortion in photoshop.
Excellent capture and well done on the composition. Beautiful work.

Man, I just love your sea/landscapes. The rocks are great and the sky is very impressive. Good colors and sharpness. Well done & TFS!


You have come up with a very interesting technique. I like all of this seascape series. Thanks. It would be interesting sometime to see the photo both pre and post processing. Better yet I'd like to be a fly on your wall so I could spy on you! I'd love to see just what you do to get these results! TFS

A wonderful composition with a mystical mood to it. The colors are amazing.

Excellent shot Paavo!
Those colors are out of this world!
What planet are we on?! ;)
If I didn't know better I would think that I am looking at a painting.

Hello Paavo,
Fantastic seascape with unbelievable dark sky.
Great wideangle and framing. Very well done.
TFS Thomas
