[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've removed lens flare, burned highlights & dodged shadows. A big improvement on the oe original. Morning light would be better than afternoon light, at this location. Ilsan Beach & Baengojin, (an eastern beach suburb of Ulsan), are in the background.

Taken from Ulgi Park on Daewangam Headland, which allegedly has 15,000 pine trees.

Hi Chris,

The POV is great and you've done a good job battling the light. The backlighting looks good on the trees.

Best regards,

Wonderful capture !
Great seascape!

Hi Chris,
What a marvelous high POV to capture such a panorama!
Nice beach shot with such a difficult exposure, yet you produced an excellent exposed picture of the city at the BG.
Good lighting and accurate sharpness.
Very well composed and neatly presented.

Another great capture from a beautiful landscape and a nice view to the cityscape!

Great use of the natural light. The green dominated landscape gives great contrast to the blue greenish waters. A great mood is reflected in this work. The sharpness and POV are perfectly chosen. Well done, as always!

Hi my friend Chris
I admire your beautiful landscapes
These are very nice work
sharing and work great

Hello Chris,

A good pov with so much f/g interest as a preliminary to viewing the interesting b/g. The trees look to be nicely blocking the dazzling sunlight on the water.
There a ppears to be a slight tilt to the buildings in the b/g, something with which you will easily be able to deal.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Fantastic view!
Lovely POV, perfect sharpness,excellent DOF.
