I like the rock pyramid, bottom left, and the gentle waves, Zed.

That bloody pandanus is spoiling my view. [grin]
zed: tongue, spoilt my view as well Ray

You've got a lovely silvery sea here Tony
zed: Thanks Chris, you can hardly see that there is 7 surfers out there

I like the photo... I had given him more leading role to the sky saturating more the colors that prove to be too homogeneous. Greetings Tony!smile
zed: Thanks Julian, personally l prefer the scene to reflect reality and that is what l try to produce with my PP
Wrong Ray - that pandanus IS the view. I love the way it is silhouetted against the lightening sky and sea.
This is full of atmosphere and early morning peace and cool.
zed: Many thanks Sheila, Ray is just pulling my leg...dammed Australian sense of humour
I realized that Ray was teasing, but it's not often anyone gets a chance to tell Ray he is wrong. I couldn't miss the chance to tease back.
zed: lol, feel free to tease away... you are so right smile
Right, Tony.. you've asked for it...! Please straighten that horizon. I like the bank of clouds on the horizon and that little hint of red in the sky.
zed: Dammit your right, never even noticed and l tend to be fanatical about it...silly mistake really. Thanks Alan and your right l did ask for it tongue

My avice is to sit and take in the beautiful veiw and Chill smile
zed: We took our time and soaked it up smile
Beautiful.
Horizon seems to be leaning right, however.
Would have liked more colour in the sky, but we cannot always have what we want

smile
Cheers

zed: Agree totally about the horizon, just missed it. l like to keep it fairly natural, l know l can boost the saturation but that isn't what l like

Thanks Rob
A great atmosphere to this Tony. Just the one criticism...As Alan pointed out.
zed: sad stupid mistake, just didn't notice.

Thanks Ron, we live and learn smile
Would just straighten the horizon and you've got a great shot.
zed: lol cant help but agree Bernie, silly mistake on my part really
All the compositional elements work well, just the horizon that needs a tweak ;o)
zed: Thanks Mike, have to agree about the horizon, l just didn't notice
Apart from the leaning horizon this image is perfect for me Tony. I really like it!
zed: Thanks Richard, not sure how l missed the horizon

Since others have said it, I won't mention a word about the horizon! I can see why you took this picture with the silhouette of the pandanus (thanks to Ray!). It totally makes this image for me!
zed: grin, what horizon....many thanks Ginnie

Really like this, except for the obvious. lol
zed: lol, wish it was obvious before l posted it
I find nothing to really criticise about this image Tony. I suppose the sea could be sharper but obviously this was down to the time needed for the exposure.
zed: Many thanks Chad

i like very much the silhouette of the tree over the sky and the water...looks beautiful
zed: many thanks Kimera, its a beautiful spot
An excellent shot Tony although Alan is right about the horizon, remember my tip, View-Grid from which you can check verticals and horizontals. Also I find the little pyramid a bit annoying bt it was there and would be difficult to clone out.
zed: Thanks Brian, seeing as l didn't spot this l will have to get in the habit of doing that
Apart from the horizon the sky and sea provide a great backdrop for the tree. Nice atmosphere zed.
zed: Thank you janet smile
A little more light and detail in the foreground and straighten the horizon and its a cracker. Like the diagonal
zed: Thanks Bill
It's a great shot. Dark enough but you can clearly distinguis the ground. Just one piece of criticism. The sea line at the horizon is clearly sloping down towards the left. I love it anyway.
zed: Thanks Albert, it was obvious to everyone but me sad

Live and learn to observe smile
Wonderful picture : A likey !
zed: Much appreciated Zeb grin
