Good to see you back on TE, you have continued where you left off. Excellent beach scene, perfect vertical format while you have splendid colours. Excellent job.

A fien view of the lighthouse from a fantastic point of view, showing the beach in all details together with beautiful refelctions and rocks flowing to the horizon. Good natural colours too.

To start with, I'm not at all into HDR, however I know, what it is. This picture from the first page of your gallery impressed me despite it is HDR as you explained. I fell, it still looks natural to me, what I treasure most. It's a fine composition of a lighthouse and and the sandy beach with rocks. Color saturation and sharpness are at its best, well done
