[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The view looking north near the lighthouse, on the scenic Dodong to Jeodong coastal walk. A short distance to the left the walking track becomes a corkscrew set of stairs to reach the shoreline far below.

To Koreans, this is the East Sea, & to the Japanese, it's the Sea of Japan.

Hi Chris,

Gorgeous colors and contrasts, the high POV is fantastic. I particulalry like the different colors and tones in the water. This is a rhetorical question, but who's right? The Koreans or the Japanese?

Have a nice evening.

Best regards,

Hi Chris,
A nice V-shaped composition of this fabulous seascape shot, quite busy with this liner crossing the perspective.
Very nice vivid colors with two beautiful islets in this blue/green water.
A very sharp FG with a considerable DOF.
Good work! I like the vertical format!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Dear Chris,
wonderful blue and a nice POV! Nice DOF as well.
Warm light.
Excellent composition.

Ciao Chris, fantastic sea view by great POV, splendid light and colors, excellent composition, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Boa tarde Chris,

Excellent perspective and a very good photograph showing a beautiful place.
Wonderful blue water and perfect control of natural lighting.
Meus parabéns e um grande abraço.

Hello Chris,

The 'v' formation, from the f/g rocks, creates a good, natural funnel, to guide the viewer towards the azure water and the focal images.
What a pity the boat is not farther across the water, towards the l/h side, where it would be in prime position as the main focal image.
Good saturation and light.

Might I suggest that a crop from the top, removing the wayward branch, would make the composition even better.

Hope you're feeling much better.
I was ill yesterday with an infected throat - much better, today.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
