lovely rock formations....any idea where I can get some info on the local geology?

Hi Tim
I love the atmosphere you create with your beach shots, and this is another fine one. The sky has a great dof for me, lovely shot.

Hi Tim,
I love the rocks in the foreground- great detail and PoV... not sure about the HDR effect, would liked to have seen the untouched one to compare

Hi Tim,
Very beautiful scenery, vith excellent POV and perspective.TFS.


Hi Tim,
I like your composition and the colour here, but I'm not so sure about the HDR effect either. I think your usual shots look more natural.
It seems to bring in a kind of grainy, almost pixelated look that reminds me of shots I took when I had the Canon S3IS for a short while.
Somehow, I didn't like the shots I got with it as much as those I get with the Lumix.
It would be interesting to compare it with a non HDR version as Jack says.

Hi Tim, unusual colours in this photo, I like the scale of the people against the rocks too, shows how massive they are. Good depth of field too :-)

Nice one Tim. :-)

Very impressive work you have done here, great result. You are obviously really getting into the HDR, good on you. :-)

Congrats and TFS.

Hi Tim
Great pov, nice and sharp, like the rocks in the foreground,
set the scene of.
How are those people in that cave going to get back
Have a great day

Hello Tim!
What a beautiful place.
Very nice picture!

Hi Tim

I like ths POV and the prespective here the only absent here is the effect, If only you can use the slow speed about 1 second maybe the water will look smooth....

Hi Tim,
It is an interesting process, seems to give perfect exposure across the entire image.
Well worth the effort.

WOW Tim, you are quite talented! your pics are getting more and more intense! I love this! The rocks are with super details! Love the water! Very nice!
B-) I'll be back......

Excellent Tim. I have tried HDR but I don't know enough about Photoshop to process them there. Good POV and lovely details in the rocks. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘More Belated Birthdays’
