I prefer this one mainly because of the amazing light! The glow on the trees really makes this shot. It often pays to wake up early. There is also something about the compo that makes it more attractive. Maybe it's the road going up then down and then turns right to somewhere we can't see...it adds some perspective.
We could only see this type of set up on the old continent.
Careful with the brush, some strokes are visible around the second tree from the left.

Hello Agnes, it was a pleasure going through your photostresm for the first time.
I stopped on this one because i love coastal shots. very mood atmosphere gere! I like to see the footsteps on the sand, it gives an idea of it's texture. It also gives a human presence to your picture. Nobody can be see , but someone was here a short while ago!
I also like the thin layer of water remaining on the sand as the wave goes back to the see. We can sort of get into the wave rhythm.
And of course the powerfuk wall of white rock is an immense presence. It takes only a small percentage of the frame bu we can feel its weight everywhere in the picture.
If i had a criticism to make, it would be that you went a bit too heavy on the brush, especially around the rock...it is a bit too obvious and it sort of reminds us that we're just looking at a photo...our mind can't wander and be part of the scene because thosenbrush strokes keep on jumping at you. Don't take it badly, it is meant to be helpful.
I wonder what a longer exposition would look like. I bet it would look awesome.
Have a good day!

Hey Jeff, i'm preparing a trip to Iceland at the end of next summer. That kind of photo will be a real inspiration for me. I absolutely love how yo managed the light and the contrasts. The yellows and th blacks...
And you took an angle so wéd get a view on the mountains on the background for more perspective. Very well done sir. Very well done...
Have a good day,

Ahhh Patrick, quelle belle lumière filtrant à travers la brume du matin! Vraiment superbe. Le contre-jour te donne des ombres pleines de vie. Une photo toute en subtilité.
As tu essayer de couper en haut des herbes pour simplifier la composition? Il n'y aurait pas assez d'espace entre le bas de la photo et le bateau probablement..
Les reflets/halos dans la lentille sont un peu dérangeant dans ce type de composition, avais-tu un par-soleil?

Hey Isa, glad to see some of my old friends stil post some photos here.
I like to see the soft light filtering through the mist revealing the parliement. This is quite the contrast witch the strong Colors that you have in the foreground. The reflections on the ground are a nice detail as well.

It has always been a dream of mine to go to Antartica! I can't believe how close to the penguins. This is amazing. I Would have like alower point of view in order to be able to see some more of the beach. I like the shot anyway.

It is very beautiful how the warm light filters through the mist revealing this series of very impressive summits!!
the longer focal length was a very clever choice here as it helps really give this effect that the mountains are stacked together.
Have a good day,

I've been there! one of my favorite place in the world!! I spent only 3 days in Cinque Terre but to this day, the time spent there still provide some of my fondest traveling memories.
this is not the classic view of those place and it makes me like this photo even more. Those were difficult light conditions to manage and you did fine. This photo does not have the huge wow factor but it's very pleasant for me to look at.
have a good day,

You well worked tones make this one visually appealing. Otherwise though, this is not your best. There is not much happening here, the pp vignettes are somewhat disturbing, the lady is just too random and the focus seems to be on the wall (which is an error in my opinion.
I gotta say I like the recall of the white color of the umbrella and the cross.
