Hi Bryan - looks like a good trip! Lovely colour in the sky and I like the use of the portrait format. .. You've obviously thought this shot through composition-wise.

The photo is too soft; just not as sharp as a D90 with that lens should produce. The answer to this is to choose a smaller aperture, say f9, and accept a slower shutter speed. The EXIF is very much showing 'auto' mode.... Go to aperture mode and take control of the camera ;-)


Hello Bryan

Love trhe POV.....almost an advert for the trip. The only thing that bothers me is the hidden sail boats behing the palm branch and the long strech of wake left behind by a boat of some kind. Still that is an awesome view.

Hi Bryan,
Good to see you back on TL. I like the vertical frame you used for this landscape shot where you made the palm trees as the main subject.
Beautiful blue Mediterranean sky behind and such a depth.
Very good light management.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Bryan,
a well composed shot and I like the strong gradient in the sky but the horizon has a slight tilt to the left and the little boats could be a lot sharper


Belle prise de vue pour ses camaieux de bleu et de gris et l'ambiance méditerranéenne.
Sujet bien maitrisé sur les palmier.

Merci du partage

Hi Bryan, I really like your pov with the trees and the vertical framing. Fiona
