Hello dear TrekLensers.

I have disabled my ability to dole out points beginning today. As our good friend Vlad (pozaru) mentioned before, points don't buy me love and can't improve our photographic skills. I will continue my practice of commenting and critiquing your work sans the smileys.

This is a very early morning scene in the island of Catanduanes in the Philippines. I woke up quite early and with a herd of street dog, I walked a quarter of a mile on the beach.

No pp work here except for resizing.

quelle compo e tiamge, une merveille, ces couleurs, ce ciel, avec le personnage dans cette immensité, la couleur merveilleuse, une merveille.

bravo et amitié


Hi Danilo,

I love the mood you have captured in this wonderful morning scene where the different color tones of the sky add a great impact into the shot!

The silhouettes of the palm trees and a diagonally extending arm of the land, also gives a great dynamism and hope. The silhouette of the person enjoying this gorgeous scene, is indeed well shot. Great work, as always!

Thanks and regards,

Bonjour Danilo

Hi Danilo,

Beautiful! Great POV with clear sharp details. Beautiful colors! Dude you are making me very homesick! Tfs.


Hello Danilo,

This is a lovely capture, even better knowing it has had no pp work.
A real postcard shot and a cracking image to view.



Hello Danilo,

I am jealous :) ...wish to be at the place in my life at list for one time...
The whole credit goes to you...one of the best early morning landscape I have ever seen...

Hi Danilo:
A stunningly beautiful sunset with great colour and composition.....looks like me in the picture....... thanks for the dream photo.....Roman:0)

Olá Danilo
As I said before Paradise must be very near the place you took this photo. It is a perfect scene. You captured all the details with a fine sharpness and very good colors.The light is like a wish of good fotune. I prefer sunrise to a sunset. I think because I like more start than endings....
Um abraço

Hi Danilo...
Beautiful shot with so nice composition...
Nice colors, silhouettes...

Hi Best Wishes
So amazing with superb contrast colors and the DOF is wonderful,a lovely sun set with stunning colors and beautiful scenic view.

Best Wishes

Hello, Danilo -
What wonderful light and colors! Aamazing scene with great horizontal layers of clouds, water and land. The lone figure standing on the edge of the surf catches the eye (and provides an important sense of scale). The silhouetted palm trees to the right really enhance the mood. Very sharp throughout. Excellent!

Bonjour Danilo
une photo exceptionnelle, mais peut-être pas vraiment quand on en connaît l'auteur qui nous a habitué à voir des merveilles.La lumière ici est remarquable dans le ciel et dans l'eau et la composition de cet équilibre avec la maîtrise des ombres,où le personnage joue un rôle important , me laisse à nouveau admiratif.

Superb tropical scene-the sky of gold over the silver sea, the black palm-trees silhouettes, the lonely walker. I have always wished to visit a place like this...
