Olá Joseph,
Soberba imagem do mar sem que é português.
Bela paisagem, cores e tonalidades.
Meus cumprimentos.

Hi Joseph

I have to say that I'm not a big fan of this, but, like you I am a keen amateur only. The first thing I notice is the horizon in the middle which, in the majority of instances, is not good. And I don't think it works here. I think if the image was cropped to just below the bottom of the pinnacle on the left it would improve the composition. It would also remove the over exposed wave. Also, I find blue sky bland and boring. I think it nearly always needs a cloud or two to add interest.
But the exposure, focus and depth of field are all good.

  • Good

The composition and the exposure are good, but definitely not the focus.


Hi Joseph,
I love the endless blue expanse of sky and water broken only by the large and one small rock outcrops.

Olá Joseph

Conheço esta praia :) Gostei de a rever.
Bom registo de um azul de quem conhece a ilha da Madeira.

Hi Joseph! Great tones of blue. Nice view. Lets keep it for forever!
Regards Csabi
