Wonderful composition! I'd like to own that house :D The backgroud mountain is amazing!

This is a lovely image, almost monochromatic with the sky mountains and sea sharing similar hues, and the house adding a splash of colour and focal point to the scene.

This shot represents the dreams and hopes of millions of people...To find a place like this and enjoy life...Wonderful composition and colors...
Edwin (188) 2003-07-21 4:28
I can only agree with the previous comments. Not just an ordinary landscape shot but also a shot that includes its inhabitants. Very well done!
Keitht (1310) 2003-07-21 5:33
This most definitely has the "Wow factor". The light blue of the sky suggests a pleasant day, whilst the low cloud and the waves indicate something much less pleasant is ahead. The muted colours work perfectly.

Stunning scenery, really well captured and technically excellent. It's a really good representation of the landscape.
I guess you have chosen to show the setting of the dwellings in this picture. However, you could also have taken the shot closer to the dwellings to show a bit more detail there. Great pic overall

I have never been to Alaska, but when I think of this place this is the kind of landscape that comes to mind. Excellent shot...the colors, composition, overall feel of the shot is wonderful. The buildings and people on the shore add a human touch to the image. Very well done!

Un de mes rêves, aller en Alaska et quand je vois une si belle photo, j'y rêve encore plus. Magnifique photo, les couleurs nettes et précises. Magnifique. Bravo.

dominique (11414) 2003-07-21 10:00
Very beautiful, veiled a clean and clear image and a splendid sight.
thien (2112) 2003-07-21 10:12
Welcome back Ned! Lovely photo. Composition is great as well as DOF and sharpness. And the whiff of low hanging cloud is great.
touristdidi (8583) 2003-07-21 11:33
As a picture, nice indeed, I love the mist, and choppy water. I can feel the clean air from here. As a place to live, looks too cold for me.
Motrem (2392) 2003-07-21 20:03
Oh! What a magnificent photo! The composition, the colours, the neatness of the image, simply excel.
Oh la la! Quelle photo magnifique! La composition, les couleurs, la netteté de l'image, tout simplement excellent.

Seward is an incredible place. When we went, we camped at the old railroad. Good memories, hope to make it back next year. THis is sharp, good colors, like the leading line here(shoreline). Good choice including the foreground buildings as it helps us see the light haze in the background. Nice shot here.
Curioso (9271) 2003-07-22 15:46
What a spectacular place ! I really like the DOF and the framing of the montains.
The shot taken from the shore really enhanced the perspective.
On top of that, the colors are great !
ornis (1271) 2003-07-26 13:09
Your composition is perfect, with some color and presence in the middle of a glacier blue panorama. That's what makes all the difference! Beautiful shot, Ned.
Coyote (457) 2003-08-01 20:58
Ned- You've done it on this one! Sharp as a tack with wonderful colors and the composition would be hard to beat. Might be your best yet. I'll give it a 9.8 ...
Porteplume (3470) 2003-08-07 9:19
Well Ned! I want that too!!!
It's such a beautiful scenery, it reminds me of our travels along the fjords in Norway.
Colours, sharpness, framing... All very well done.
heru66 (31) 2003-08-18 6:20
Beautiful place and excellent shot! The clarity of this picture is amazing, and the houses are a good addition to this pic.
danielo (0) 2003-08-29 23:18

angel (34) 2003-09-05 20:42

I LOVE THIS PHOTO! My Favorite, now!
CoolDan (2516) 2003-10-24 17:10

iamxa (3103) 2003-11-02 6:54

scalerman (26900) 2003-12-14 15:49
what a classic shot. beautiful colors and sharp. how do you like the D100? looks like it does nice work.
kazan (779) 2003-12-16 4:04
Believe me, this is something a lot of us would want, too!!!
Lolydodia (580) 2004-04-09 20:14
what a dream...
rabani (9645) 2004-05-23 22:56
All I want...is to sit down here, listening to the waves, breaking on the shore.While taking in the sight of the majestic mountain.
kinginexile (2598) 2004-10-02 0:38
super sharp, fitting well with the cutting cold one may experience in such surroudings. I feel at the same time breathless and catching a breath of fresh air.
Very happy you did not crop that satellite dish....:-))))
mikoyen (1180) 2004-10-03 22:02
Beautiful picture, very nice.
colinbrenchley (6431) 2004-12-31 16:26
Superb location. The extra bit of light on the buildings really lifts them against the blue backgraound of the mountains. The problem with this shot is that I now have another place added to my list of "places to visit"!!
Albrecht (11281) 2005-02-01 5:31
This is a very nice picture because of the dark side of the mountains and the soft clouds in the sky. The little waves bring some movement in the picture. Good shot
errorist (668) 2005-02-16 15:27
Fantastic photo. Very impressive.
tsumeb (470) 2005-02-16 15:27
Awesome image with great colors. This is a very evocative shot. Excellent work!
sboseramesh (7) 2005-06-23 23:35
Beautiful picture with contrasting color, a dream place to live watching the water hitting the shore, thickness of snow changes with weather up in the mountains and home on the shore. Nice spot and best combination of mountains, house, shore and bluish tint.
maphoto (8082) 2005-08-24 22:31
Beautiful place and wonderful point of view, simply beautiful with these mountains in the back. I went through your album Ned, congratulations, this is a beautiful one, high quality photo, thanks for sharing, continue your great work.
waswib (22) 2005-08-25 10:53

The blue is so wonderfull.

deud (1920) 2005-09-05 1:58
very pleasant and majestic view. lovely composition. good dof. good job.
Yamada (2309) 2005-09-27 3:38
Great shot. Very sharp details. I can stil remember seeing the house with the small room on top of it (most right house). Funny that one remembers something like that more then the view of the bay itself :)
Anyway, Great job.
dbezan (166) 2005-10-02 20:11
Nice title, great photo. The color of the water is very nice and Alaskan. I wish I had better pictures from up there.
PLD_images (7149) 2005-10-06 20:42
What more to say about this great shot.
Just wanted to add that I think this is a wonderfull photograph with a very special composition. Water and ice snow in the same image... WOW... ;-)
MLINES (12516) 2006-01-06 16:14
Great capture of the houses and mountains and sea all in one.The thin clouds between the peaks and the sea make it special. Good clarity and colours.Well done.
randompics (957) 2006-01-08 10:15
Wow a perfect composition and surreal scenery. It is almost like a piece of heaven.

absoultly perfect..the mountains and the sea..the colors ..wow..an awesome photo!! tfs!
rajhema (1873) 2006-08-15 8:33
Your angle keeping one home within the natural space is awesome Ned. Its a dream location for me to spend few days. I don't know I would like to spend the rest of my life there but certainly for few days its a paradise. Colors and the natural beauty is perfectly blended in this picture.
bend1k (934) 2006-11-16 4:38
ya i would want to climb that too
Juniper (16) 2007-01-13 22:06
I agree. If I had this Seward home and a lone well photographed home in Glen Coe Scotland I'd be set for life. Wonderful photograph of a wonderful area of the US. Thanks. ep
nwoehnl (122) 2007-08-14 8:15
Hi Ned, I hope that all is well. This photo came up on the TE front page, and I want to take the opportunity to bring it to a well-deserved score of 100. The inclusion of the curving foreground coastline and colorful houses provide just a perfect intro to the presentation of the grand scenery. The low-hanging clouds in front of the range is another detail that I like quite a bit. Beautiful shot.
zumoduvas (2069) 2008-01-12 12:11
Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.
fed3 (18) 2009-03-20 15:07
"I want it all" :-) Fantastic place. Very good shot. Regards, Andrzej
AnaRita (1741) 2009-04-26 2:18
your photo caught my eye and attention because of the colors and the title All I Want is the title of the song by Joni Mitchell :)
This place is charming and perfect for some "nature vacations".
Thank you so much for sharing,
JudyR (1671) 2009-08-18 8:16
It's hard to believe that people can still live like this in America, isn't it? Wonderful capture of this unique place, surrounded by high mountains. Great color and detail. Thanks, Judy
smash2707 (3320) 2011-02-03 10:35
This place looks so beautiful on your shot that I want to visit it. Nice composition showing these houses and the stunning mountain in the background. Regards, Yvonne
