I had to get wet for this shot. I wanted a low perspective so carefully entered the rock pool to avoid a disaster for my trusty camera. With water up to my neck I nervously fired off a number of shots. Not sure if this rather dark shot is the best but something about it appeals to me.

Hi,this is a very lively image because of the cloud formation reflecting in the water and and the interesting rocks,keeping the eye engaged.Well done,Otto.

Hello Terry

I likre the clarity in this image. Horizon in the middle, but still an awesome capture with the clouds in the water. nice


HI Terry...this is a great shot..wonderful sharpness, tones and light. This looks like it was processed using NIK Viveza with increased Structure adjustment. Very well done.


Appeals to me as well :-) good use of wide angle - now you need a full frame camera ;-)

Great work getting wet for this one, I reckon it's paid off nicely and was worth the risk. F10 has given great sharpness, composition is good, cool reflections - no problems here, very nice image.

Very inviting for a little dip! I like your low pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Very nice colors. Well done, tfs.

What a wonderful picture !!!

congrats and thanks,

Hello Terry,
I wasn't really going to do some critiques now but there are a few images here that I have to catch before they pass on to the second page and this is one of them. Your wading into the water up to your neck and risking your equipment paid off very very well. This is a great image! In fact, it is fabulous. The way the horizon is broken by the rock formation in the foreground is excellent. I have no suggestion for improvement. Congratulations.

Bom dia Terry
You achieve a great definition in this image..the reflection are superb.
Um abrašo

Full credit for putting your neck out - or rather in - for this pic Terry! Nice to see the low POV here. Overall, the possibly harsh combinations of light and shadow have been well dealt with. Interesting scene, great sky!


Well...the risk you took really paid off! Absolutely stunning landscape with beatiful composition and excellent metering accuracy to capture this amount of natural looking true to the eye dynamic range. The reflections of the clouds is amazing! Well done!

Hi Terry,
Really nice low PoV for this getting that lovely sky in, the rock gives a good focal point, I like the fact that not much is reflection apart from the edges of the rock which give it the look of reaching out of the pool. Nice view through the water to the bottom of the pool and great focus throughout. Best wishes

Hi Terry,

This is a great shot, worth getting wet for I think. Fantastic sky with lovely clear light, sharp detail in the rocks and good reflections. Excellent landscape.
