Hello JAn

I do alot with guassian blur myself. I then go one step more. I use multiply in the blend mode. looks very similar to the result here. Anyway I like the lighthouse on the far left in the image. The crop bodes well also. Interesting artistic result.


Hello Jan,
nice composition and presentation.

Hi Jan,

Very nice picture! This looks like a back at home for birds after a day flying
over the sea! The panoramic format is interesting too, bringing a great sense of space and freedom. Excellent post-processing so well done that it is imperceptible.
Best regards!


A pleasing image, nicely presented horizontally and well framed.

Hi Jan,
A wonderful seascape panorama of this cloud of seagulls flying towards this lighhouse. Superb presentation of such a windy day with that rough sea and dull weather enhanced by the Guassian blur filter.
I like the panoramic format to increase impact to such a scene.
Well done.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Jan

I really don;t know what I like most about your photograph. The panoramic effect works well, the hue works well, the sky's cloud formations and colour certainly looks like there's something on the horizon that could bring bad news for sun-seekers and the lighthouse looks really lonely stuck out there at the end of the breakwater.
Nice work

Great shot Jan. Beautiful color and a great composition and presentation. Well done! TFS, Lori

Hi Jan...great shot...beautiful tones and colors....nice work.
