Hi Agnieszka, I like the strongly contrasted textures of the porous volcanic stones you accomplished in your shot using your camera settings and taking advantage of the direct sun.
Good use of the DOF as well.
The wide black frame is appropriate for the image, but the big 'Pumice' title is not necessary and spoils somehow the beauty of the post, you already had titled it. Just my thoughts ;)
However, it´s a great shot!


nice frame for warm colors,

well done Agnieszka
