A marvellous scene well captured from an interesting POV with the tree serving as a natural frame.
Excellent DOF in equal sharpness both the FG and the BG.
Great details all over and very natural colors.
A wonderful postcard of this Hout Bay.

I like the POV you choose : a large escape to the right, from the tree to the mountains. Soft colours and good control of the light.

Very well composed landscape Hans - great exposure under the southern sun and f16 renders a really sharp image and deep DOF..

You are obviously enjoying this holiday.
Although I love to photograph the snow, this sunny scene is extremely appealing!
I like the inclusion of the tree which acts as a welcoming pointer, encouraging the viewer to look out across the bay, into your frame. The surrounding hills fence the bay and prevent any visual escape from the beauty of the scene.
Lovely textural details and a good dof.
Good luck with the rest of your journey,

Kaap Goede Hoop was vroeger voor zeevaarders een gevaarlijke ronding om naar de oost tekomen.
Maar goed dat je aan land bent gebleven om o.a.deze mooie opname temaken van "Hout Baai".

Kia ora and welcome back Hansie - you have been missed...
What a lovely scene - your focus is great - the details are very crisp and sharp.
I posted a snap from almost the very same spot :-) http://www.treklens.com/viewphotos.php?l=5&p=465771
I was lucky with a few clouds but I like how you have included the tree to add depth/perspective/scale/interest. Really a fantastic stretch of coastline, Hans, and you've done it justice with this shot. Good one, big fella!

Hello dear Hans!
Very lovely shot in vivid colors and good DOF. The tree in the FG is quite touching and enhances the beauty of the shot!
TFS, indeed lovely composition.
