Hi Tony,
POV, DOF and the secenery looks very nice. Good exposure control, composition and colors. TFS
Have a nice week,

Hi Tony,

Good colours and the lines of the waves take one's eye out to the horizon. I presume it was F32 and not F3.2 to get the DOF.


Hola Tony, MARAVILLOSO paisaje, con una buena exposición y atractivos colores. Un saludo

It is a beautiful coast and a great ocean Tony, in spite of an f/3.2 the depth of field is phenomenal, thanks to the short focal length of your lens. A dynamic composition my friend, I can almost hear the surging waves!
Greetings from Izmir,

Hello Tony,

Very nice seascape. Beautiful capture of this long beach. Very good POV, DOF, light and colours.

Hello Tony,
A delightful coastal view that would in itself be a an inspiration to visit NZ!
A beautiful composition of rollers, beach and coastlands and the FG vegetation in the RH corner is great to give the whole perspective.
Well done my friend and thanks for sharing this beautiful view.

Hello Tony,
Sometimes the POV can make or break the photo. This high POV is very beautiful. Certainly in combination with this composition. Even the clouds were cooperating.

Also nice the sky.

Hi Tony,

I'll never tire of these magnificent seascapes. The coastline is beautiful and the waves rushing into the shore are spectacular. Wonderful blues and white of the water, and shades of green on the land. I love the clouds hugging the mountains in the otherwise blue sky.

Hello Tony

A beautiful postcard quality image.
The lighting and colours are excellent.
Wonderful sharpness and detail.
The POV is well chosen.


Hallo Tony
Once more a spectacular landscape from your lens. There's so much to see and appreciate. It is like a viewing a dream. This image is a real pleasure on the eye, and I wish I could witness it in real, but looking at it now gives me great pleasure. A very peaceful landscape. A simple, yet very delightful seascape. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Ha! Tony, one day I will go there, just to think of those beautiful beaches, quiet and so big, I dream! The waves make a nice pattern in your picture and the colours are superb. Summer is coming for you as fall is replacing the brightness here. Thanks for sharing another beauty from your country, I am a fan!

Hello Tony,
New Zeeland often reminds me of Sweden as there is still so much undisturbed nature left! This coastline looks very beautiful with the wash coming in. It must be great for surfers? Great DOF and wonderful colours in this fine composition.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Tony,
What a superb panoramic shot vith very impressive colours, light and POV.TFS.


Hi Tony,
Nice to see a different view not pointed toward the sea but toward the beach and country. It looks like there has been many trees taken down for timber.
I like the the rock in the FG and the many waves rolling onto the beach. It seems to be a pretty nice day to be outside.

Ciao Tony, great POV for a splendid seascape with fantastic colors and splendid light, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Tony,
Another marvelous landscape shot from your beautiful country. I like the grenish blue see in this shot and the composition. Many thanks for sharing this fine scenery.

Hi Tony,
it's a very nice shot as always, with huge depth and excellent clarity. The details are very good too...beautiful!

Ciao Tony,
un altro meraviglioso paesaggio marino, eccellenti POV e composizione che evidenzia lo spumeggiare delle onde, ottima nitidezza, bellissimi e luminosi i colori e come sempre una splendida luce.

Hola Tony, nada que comentar a tus tomas de las costa de N. Zelanda que ya no te haya dicho alguna vez. Creo que tenéis un clima muy variado. Me gustaría conocer los cultivos de allí, pero lástima que esta web solamente sea para temas estrictamente naturales.
Precioso panorama el que nos presentas esta vez con un bien conseguido equilibrio, por lo que has cuadrado de manera maestra los diferentes elementos. Un excelente trabajo.
