it looks like a giant creature drinking sea water... excellent POV (I've seen it only from the other side). good use of HDR created clear textures and sharp colors. the image has fine depth and scale.

What a stunning seascape Francis, this jumps off the page, even as a thumbnail.
Nice placement of the scenne through the arch, well done.
New Zealand has a similar tourist attraction out of the Bay of Islands, up north.
I have a print somewhere packed away, so mhere is a link to show you our version.

An awesomw capture, the colours and texture of the outcrop is amazing, the way the light hits the layers and the weathered sides makes for such a stunning image. The arch and the view thro' adds much coupled with the richness of the waters, truly wonderous.

Hello Francis :)
Monumental, splendid gate through which it would like oneself to swim steels.
Surrounded the the blue of water and sky looks fantastically.
Looking by this the gate I see in people standing over the bank distance. Miraculous rocks, water and sky, their colours and beautiful light, they created the fantastic composition, magnificently by You showed.
With best wishes.

A very impressive place indeed. I like this POV, obviously taken from a boat? Given what the note says, I would not walk on or sail under this one!

A good upward pov on the arch & a fine entry in the low pov theme. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red & blue. The arch frames the bg rock shelf superbly & the people add scale. Tfs. Have a great Sunday!

What a wonderful capture from this natural eroded "arcade", Francis!
Great sharpness and well kept focus with superb details and colors.
The POV and DOF are excellent, and HDR treatment brings great results.

Hello Francis, the HDR has served you well here,the Window looks SO solid!The light was kind to you too, as it highlights all the colours and textures of the rocks.
I like your proximity to the phenomena, and it is good to see the distant cliffs, and the tiny people.
Tfs, regards Jean.

An excellent image of this sea arch. Your low POV give the view a sense of the scale and the deatil and color are natrually rendered from you PP HDR.
It reminds me of a similar one in Los Cabos, Mexico at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula.
