Hi John,
This is a very beautiful photo of this coastline.
Superbe composition and natural colors.
I like the light which carves more the rifts and gives them great textures in relief. The little red roof of the shack enhances this beautiful image! Bravo!

PS/ Take care with your eyes!

Well, I see that our Balkans are a wonderful and pcturesque place.
A wonderfully captured coastline stretch and the boat add value and motion to the photo.
The sea is of fascinating colour.

John, those high cliffs make this is a very beautiful coastline indeed, especially in the evening sunlight (is the time in the photo info correct?). The distant mountains form a nice backdrop, the chapel (??) near the coast is located magnificently next to the sea... the tourist boat looks like an ant, compared to the height you took this shot from. Somehow I wonder if cropping about 3 cm from below, getting the picture a much wider aspect, wouldn't make for a stronger compo... but that could be my preferral of wide aspect pics.
Take care of your eyes!

What a beautiful coast! Well composed vacation shot, well presented too. Regarding the frame. I do not like too much the soft (blurred) border.
Regards, and rest your eyes,

Hello John,
Spectacular . . . a good, layered composition with lots of detail; great lighting (I love how the water glows here and there under the cliffs; and the boat and the little house with the red roof are perfect points of interest.
Take care of the eyes,

Nice layers of colour here John. Good light, well composed and very good detail. I worked with a few people from that part of the world once, their home brew was poisonous.

ciao John..
i was there 2 years ago.. traveling by motorcycle!! Montenegro is one of the most beautiful place i have visited!! ;))
compo is really romantic.. a boat, the calm of the sea.. this little old building on the hills coast !! an excellent mood indeed!! bravo! many thanks
ciao Marco

Hi John, The small boat shows the scale well. It is certainly an attractive place for a cruise along the coast. Good horizontal split between sea, earth and sky. TFS. Murray.

Marvelous work John! LOVE that warm sunshine on the rocks! The water is so nice, looks like a peaceful place, and I LOVE the little house, with the red roof! Super!

Hello dear bro, very nice composition and well balanced to my taste.
I think that the distance from the sensor plane and the subject is well chosen thus, the equilibrium of water, cliff and sky is perfect.
I would have done the same. But then again it is a matter of taste.

The water ratio here is almost 1/3 of the pic, then the cliff a little more then a little less on the sky. And I think that the ratio proportion of the sky here is just enough sky that is needed to the comp. Not being the main focal point but the cliff, the litte boat and the house on the cliff are.

Nice depth of colours, details, sharpness. I love also the quality of the light here and the reflection at the bottom of the clif on the water.

I like it very much.

Take care of your eyes. I am changing my glasses prescription this week :)

Cheers to you and Yolanda.

Hi my friend John,
Memories are made of this, when I see your wonderful image. Years ago we spent some happy days there.Very beautiful photo you made.
Allthe best for your eyes!
Freubndliche Grüße Rose

Hi john,

Very nice to see how the little house and the little boat give a bit of a reference for the size of it all. A very rocky and rugged coastline for sure.


Awesome scenic view John. The composition is great and the detail in the picture is very clear. I like the boat and the house in the shot. It gives the pic. a sence of how massive the rocks and cliffs really are. Great capture.

HI John
Its a great photo of the rugged coastline showing us the immensity with the tiny ship.Pretty steady hand to have caught this from the cruise liner.

Next time someone wants to give you a gift, suggest to them to get you the gps for camera,they are called APT photo finder,Geotagging Data or GPS picture tracker.

It calculates and records gps data and allows you to precisely track the exact location and time where your pictures were taken. The price a mere $80 dollars.When you get home you just plug it in the pc and all data is recorded with each picture. A must have gadget for a traveller such as you.



Beautiful capture.
Nice proportion when it comes to the sky, land and water.

The small boat on the left gives a nice little touch to the image.

Hellou my friend!

Great photo, amazing place, colours and perpective.


What a beautiful view. The small boat gives us some idea of the massive height of these cliffs. The lighting is excellent showing up the textures of the rocks, and the little house with the ref roof just adds that touch of colour.
Cheers Joan
