Hi Jack,
It looks like the stones in the foreground forms a paved road towards the island.


Hi Jack

"If you want to take an interesting photo, stand in front of something interesting". You have done that, but you have also done a very good job of it. Love the lead in lines of the rocks, it's a pity they are not wet. But if there not wet then there's little you can do about it. I also like the dark mood of the scene. Not sure about the black border though.

Best photo on Trek Lens for a while.


WOW ! This dark and silvery scene is gorgeous.
Beautiful rendering of light & colors.
A mastered work, aesthetic and technical.

Hello Jack,
Outstanding exposure, really beautiful and first page magazine photo, the frame looks spot on.
Well done and TFS,

Hi Jack
This image is somewhat mysterious.
I like the stones in the foreground, the dark clouds and the sky tones, above all close to the horizon line.


Hi Jack,
I love the way the rock formation leads one into the scene and what a fantastic image you have presented.
