Hello Ho Tony!
Excellent moment and view!
Atmosphere is mystic a little bit!

Hi Ho Tony,
Not the first stretch of wild coastline I have viewed today.I like how you positioned yourself right on the division between sea and land....the waterline drawing you in. Also a clear emphasis between land and sky giving the image more depth.I like the misty spray of the surf.

I like this beach shot, it certainly feels like an NZ beach - but I couldn't resist chopping it up - just a little bit!
pablominto (53744) 2007-09-08 23:12
Fine diagonals are created by the foam left on sand!
I like the moist in the air that adds to the atmosphere, a pleasant composition with emphasis on the beach...
The rugged cliff makes a nice balancing of the composition!

The sharpness and atmosphere are stunning Ho!

Beautiful photo of the beach & coast. I particularly like the capture of foams & bubbles the waves have brought. Nice textures of the sand, colors, and a bit of mist. Quite atmospheric. Greetings. Latiff.

splendida foto, nel tuo stile!
Un pò sovraesposta sulla sinistra, ma l'effetto è ugualmente positivo, la brezza sollevata dal vento è stupenda...complimenti!

Bella foto e bella la nebbiolina che sfuoca un pò l'immagine.

I like very much the texture of grained sand and the stripe of fuzzy water.
Well composed picture, with only a bit lack in the top-left corner with a bit of overexposed sky.
picardo (2459) 2007-09-10 20:15
The picture transmit the calm and peacefull of the place. The fog on the rocks at the background make the picture more misterious. Nice work
P.S.: Thanks for your comment
ryno (6398) 2007-09-13 4:59
Hi Tony, all seven of your photos posted so far capture New Zealand's renowned natural beauty very well. This one is probably my favourite. I like the fine, fragile detail of the mist and bubbles on the beach. Well seen!
naturelover (306) 2007-09-13 18:51
I like the composition of this seacape and the way the white sea-foam draws your eye toward the large rocky hill in the background. The soft colours create a quite mood.
mphotographies (1976) 2007-09-14 1:24
Your composition is very good here. A beautiful harmonious division of the horizon, the coastal shore and rock mountain. You favoured a more prominent foreground showing interest in the details of the sand as the sea softly waves into the shore creating 'foamy' shapes, something we like to see and discover around this shore. The mist that cuts across the horizon gives a very unique touch...Very Nice!
saxo042 (33992) 2007-09-14 3:53
The division of this picture in two part is obvious here; darkness and lightness. The division by a line of foam is very appealing. A very fine photo, thanks for sharing.
marietom (34607) 2007-09-15 3:47
Jolie composition,; avec ce chemin d'écume qui mène à l'eau. Belle diagonale.
shevchenko (18725) 2007-09-17 19:56
Good pov to show waves at the middle of the photo, fantastic light reflects by the sea, mysterious felt at the foot of hill, good shoot.
*Thanks for write into my photo yesterday.
balatrek (7447) 2007-09-23 3:42
The composition is good and the foam in the sand create balance, great perspective and immense depth, you have captured a very interesting atmosphere, I believe that with some element in close-up the work would have more force and balance, good shot and thanks to share.
captainsgirl (3448) 2007-09-28 17:43
Beautiful beach photo, love the misty air lingering , and the foaming water on the beach...beautiful angle you had..great color. TFS

josepmarin (56585) 2007-10-14 2:31
Nice graphism that the diagonals of the foam form in the wet sand, with a good effect of the mist and the gray sky.
The off-centre setting is good, the rocky coast aside balances the composition.
It's a nice work.
kiwi_explorer (12209) 2007-10-15 1:11
Wonderful contrast in texture ... the foam against the solid rock. I like the impact of the foam ... it leads the viewers eyes towards the horizon covered with sea mist. Perfectly composed ... excellent work! tfs
gunbud (34066) 2007-10-17 20:18
Beautiful contrasting colors between the pale blue sea and the brown beach and white foam left by the surf. The rocky cliffs make a beautiful accent toward the blue sky. Excellent sharpness and clear colors to this fine image.
azaf1 (15929) 2007-10-18 0:25
No words to describe this beauty. My Respects!
darrasin (2860) 2007-10-18 22:23
Hello Ho! That well-angled line of foam really attracted me to this composition. It adds great depth to the scene and leads the eye nicely to those interesting headlands on the right.
emjleclercq (15778) 2007-10-22 13:08
A wonderfull view, with the fringe of foam left on this very dark sand, and a superb silvery aspect of the sea on the left. You seem to have lots of beautifull shore views, so I must come back when I have some time.
All the best,
Truja (4953) 2007-10-23 8:50
fantastic image with the diagonals of the waves of the sea and smooth tonalities. Great quality of image.

Well senn and well done.
With regards from Luxembourg
rushfan2112 (2965) 2007-12-16 1:08
Hi Tony. Fantastic photo. I love the limited and slightly de-saturated colours. The dark sand contrasts nicely with the white foam and the mist makes the shot feel very mystical and serene. Excellent work. Regards, Paul.

Beautiful and well composed shot here. Lighting are very nice as the watter surface.
Beautiful shot from Waitakere indeed.

Hello Ho Tony,
Wonderful waves! Excellent moment and view! I like this beach shot, wonderful sea landscape. Quiet and beautiful moment. Well done and great POV.
Charo (51208) 2008-02-12 2:13
Gran imagen con esa bruma que crea el batir de las olas, me gusta mucho esa espuma que queda sobre la arena. Gran POV.
jusninasirun (17146) 2008-02-24 6:48
I like the ribbon-like texture of the bubbles left by the pounding wave on the sand here. You captured it right on time before it disappeared. The fog at the bottom of the rock creates pleasant perspective with softness in sight. Well done and best regards.
foozi (7101) 2008-04-07 2:51
thanks for the comment. It is a nice feeling to have somebody from NZ to write in Malay.
It gives some excitements. But to see you photos are more than that. NZ, is very photogenic and with great scenes.
This one gives a very special aura, with somesort like misty.
Your ability to shoot at the right moment is the sttrength here. The lines formed by the coming waves give element of uniquness. The sky gives element of dramatic as well as the bigger waves are coming .
The clear and crisp sandy beach add power to your photo, producing a captivating one.
Thanks for sharing the photo and skills, and also looking forward to hear you speaking Malay.
lucasgalodoido (21046) 2008-04-14 14:53
brm interessante essa imagem, a textura da areia ficou ótima, mas a névoa foi o melhor da imagem mesmo.
Parabéns e Abraço!

you've chosen a very interesting low pov and the diagonal line formed by the surf adds a dynamic touch to this composition. It seems peaceful, so enjoyable.
Best wishes for the upcoming year.
