Ciao Valter ,
A beautiful coastal landscape . Interesting contrast between the emerald water and the dark cloudy sky . The horizon line is centered , but that works well here .

beautiful scene with cristal clear water.Very nice tranquil atmosphere.Just love these color combination and its superb saturation.Another highligt are for me cloud formations-they look amazing.At first I thought you used long shutter speed or any filter to create this awesome effect(they look like they were in motion).
Very inviting scene-just to relax and do nothing.Great work!
Have a nice weekend

la foto è più o meno come la mia....vabbè nella mia ci sono un paio di ombrelloni di troppo.
Alta qualità per un bellissimo scatto, la profondità mi incanta e l'acqua è molto invitante, il tutto coronato da un cielo da far invidia.

Superba qualità dell'immagine

This is a very fine composition with superb colours. The clouds are impressive and play a major role for the impact of the photo. I also love the narrow area of turquoise water.

Ciao caro Valter,
A very interesting note and a beautiful photograph with which to illustrate it! I love your large-scale photograph too on Panoramio - there we can really enjoy this picture to the fullest extent. Strangely, though, despite a long search on Googl;e Earth, I'm afraid I can't find your picture there! Perhaps it's not yet been uploaded to Google Earth?
The most impressive feature of this picture must be the clear blue/green water in the foreground through which we can see rocks and plants so clearly, and the way the sunlight "plays" on the more distant water as well as the foreground rocks. The sky is wonderfully interesting too with those lovely almost "explosive" clouds that come from using a wide angle lens.
Excellent composition, glorious vibrant colours, perfect exposure and exceptional detail and sharpness.

Marronnamia che bellezza! Credo che quel mare sia piena di smeraldi invece dell'acqua! Impressionante la resa cromatica qui, é ancora naturale, ma ancora ricco e forte. Il f/22 ha fatto bene qui, ancora una volta l'immagine é come un rasioio. Complimenti, questo é veramente paradiso.

Vista presenta un bellissimo ed elegante. Nitidezza e l'esposizione sono molto buona e attraente. Ben fatto.

What a sweeping view, I think we are rarely blessed with this kind of conditions and nature. This particular shot has its outstanding beauty, the combination of grey, white and blue sky is extremely remarkable. The bright fg rocky line lifts the contrast so well while taking viewers down and beyond in sublime light and colors. Yes, certainly they hide surprises that Mother Nature can inflict upon us. Simply gorgeous, TFS

these vibrant colors are really beautiful! This is actually the seaside at its best. You have composed a wonderful impression taken from a very well working POV. My compliments, also for the nice note!
