Winter Beach - 冬の浜辺

Rabbit Island, Nelson, New Zealand

Nikon D200
AF Nikkor 50mm F1.4 + PL Filter
F2.8, 1/500, ISO-100


  1. Constructive criticism? Advice? Ummm... I think I'll go with plain old comment.... The hills look like it's painted, not photographed, dear.

  2. Ben
    I really like the toning of this shot

    as way of constructive criticism...
    I thing most your photos would look better on a lighter background something like the gray at the top of this comment box (around the word "welcome" level)or a pure black background as there is something about the gray you have used that just doesn't look right

  3. What a glorious scene, my goodness. Just breathtaking. I love the shades of blue and gray.

  4. Thanks, everyone.

    Keith, It was good timing you suggested this. I was thinking about change. So, I will try your suggestion. Let's see how it gores. I quite like it.

    I love pure black background, but text looks blur on any colour on my screen so I need more experiment.

  5. Well I like this shot. It looks like an oil painting and a very inviting place to visit.

  6. Thanks Sue.
    It's a very good place. We love there to be for just a walk or having a picnic.

  7. love the blending tones of sea and sand. very painterly. i wonder what it would look like cropped?

  8. I'd call it one of your signature shots that I so much admire!

    wish I was there too...

  9. Well, as I don't understand photography, I have no criticisms to make - I was just amazed at the blueness of the picture and loved it =)
