"Taejongdae is a natural park of Busan, South Korea, with magnificent cliffs facing the open sea, on the southernmost tip of the island of Yeongdo-gu. It is a representative visitor attraction of Busan, which has dense evergreen trees, and several facilities for tourists, such as an observatory, an amusement park, a light house, & a cruise ship terminal. It is said that its name is taken from King Taejong Muyeol (604 - 661 ad), the 29th king of the Silla Kingdom, who liked to practice archery at this place, after the unification of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. Taejongdae is designated as the 28th Busan monument, along with Oryukdo Island."

I like the use of the vertical format here and the inclusion of the foreground rocks, which point like fingers towards the headland and the ships on the far horizon. The light brings out the warm tones in the rocks to good effect. Good natural looking colours and excellent sharpness throughout.

Nice, nice view again. I'd preffer a wider view to enjoy the sea, but it's only an opinion.

The contrast is trully strong, but the outcome is very attractive.
Beautiful paints of sea, vegetation, rocks.

Nice coastal view, Chris. Good depth accomplished by including the foreground rocks, and overlooking the water towards the boat traffic in the back. Vivid color range.

Magnificent turquoise sea below the lovely blue sky and the brilliantly contrast green hillside.
The jagged rocks make an interesting lead and ships on the horizon are a plus to this lovely coastal image.

Very nice color contrast of the rock formation cropping into the air against the sea water and the pale blue sky. You have here the elements that I like in a photo, water, stone, sky.
I wonder if the natural geography of the earth is telling us about the rotation, because the cliffs and some exposed coastlines of the world are located on the east coasts of the land. Like Barrier Reef.

j'aime bien mieux l'exposition ici, plus basse, ce qui fait bien ressortir les contrastes et les couleurs. Avec un peu plus de recul, tu aurais pu cadrer en horizontal, ce qui je crois aurait mieux convenu.

The cliffs are framing well the sea. The presence of the boats has an effect of scale. The point of view takes our eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the photo. The luminosity is enhancing the different tints of colors of the scenery. Have a nice day.

Like the contrast between the colour of the rocks & the deep green of the sea, merging with the blue of the horizon. Good idea of taking into the frame the green triangle of the slope on the left. well done!

namaste, interesting one from your gallery. Minimum items are there with a maximum effect. Love the contrasting colours and the sheds of water. The frontal rocky parts provided here excellent depth. A superb one. Tfs.

The special texture and sight of the rocks in the foreground makes a great scale to comprehend the sight of that place above the bay, Chris. The "falling" slope from left gave yet another dimenssion here.
Nicely spotted and posted with good depth and clarity.
