I love this photo, the DOF is great. Blue seems to be my colour. The rock seems to point directly at the (what looks like) the setting sun in the horizon.

Impresivbe shot, great colors and details. TFS

Hello Giorgio. Nice shot of this fascinating rock formation. It reminds me of a Henry Moore sculpture. Thanks for sharing.

Regards Phil.

Hello Giorgio,
This is a wonderful frame!
I like this composition and the impact is strongly enhanced by the awesome colour palette...
Good lines and fine textures, the little white spot in the horizon attracts attention!

Ciao Giorgio, bello il contrasto bianco/blu, il gioco di ombre che disegna la pietra. Con questa giornata grigia vedere un po' di luce fa allegria! A presto, Cinzia

Hi Giorgio,
Incredibel vista of this island. The composition is surreal, almost abstract like. Good work. Greetings! Danilo

Well composed picture of this interesting structure. Looking at the thumbnail, I thought you traveled to Antarctica or some similar place:)

Hi Giorgio,
The effect works well with the gorgeous landscape. Well chosen POV, excellent shot. It's almost seems to be floating.

Original subject shot at the right time of the day. It looks like Salvador Dali's soft yacht on the Mediterranean Sea. Amazing!

Just very special
never seen before
like the work of the shadows

Hi Giorgio,
Wow ! A beautiful composition, with great use of the natural luminosity, light and shadows zones. The neat horizon is just set there like a reference, and the different tints of blue set the distance. Nice details and texture of the rocks (it really look like snow). Very well done. TFS,

Well Nice Capture , But there is a problem with sharpness

any ways Thx for sharing

ciao Giorgio,

Mi piacciono molto i contrasti tra il sasso ed il mare! (Did I write that correctly?) I like the contrast between the stone and the sea. in boca a lupo!


Ciao Giorgio
Mi tocca sgridare i miei parenti che mi hanno portato a San Leone, u' Cannateddu ecc. e non mi hanno fatto vedere questa meraviglia.
