The colors... my God, the colors! This is truly a phenomenal photo! It couldn't have been captured in a more brilliant way :) I love the purples, the oranges, and the shades of reds... no, I just love it all! Photography has always had a special spot in my heart but I've never pursued it as a medium (steadily) and wish I had done so earlier.

Although this is an older piece (the first one I've seen of your work) this is simply just fantastic :D
I'll be browsing your gallery as soon as I hit "comment" :)

The blues in the shadows are a little rich in my opinion but yet again I love the wonderful colours here.

Great shot man and I absolutely love the rock in the foreground showing the different layers. But for some reason this didn't turn up in my devwatch.

Great shot. One of the best and most original I've seen from you lately in my opinion. (not to downplay any of your others recently at all, they all have been great but I really like this one.)

lovely streaky colours in sky and foreground...if you want crit....i would just say maybe the composition could be better. ...i read what you said to andy...and understand difficult conditions...could you have got low enough to avoid the sea in the shot altogether...the colours marry so well in the rocks and sky i feel the sea is unnecesary in the shot....

so how do you like the 16-35 hougaard?

Stunning piece! The colors of the sky and the colors of the shore look beautiful together! The grass adds a much more mystical feeling to it, as though you're walking on a ledge instead of the shore. The angle is superb as well. It's an overall great capture. :rose:
