Svetlana - how is it that you are not a pro? I was at an art show recently and none of the photographers displaying showed your level of creativity. Maybe it's just me, but I think there's something unique and special about your photos. Every time I come across one, i end up staring at it for a while.


What can I say about your comment, Peter? Thank you seems like a very small word.
I believe that we are able to notice in others what we have in ourselves, so, yes, I think it is JUST you.    
However, I appreciate that you have shared YOUR view with me.


It is not JUST him. Me too, and I bet many others think the same!


You too! Thank you for your willingness to bet.

Very atmospheric - lovely balance between sky, sea and sand. And then the man and his board - it brings back so many memories. But for me what makes it so very good is what you cannot see or what is missing - the kite part. Mostly that would be included and the absence of that with the string moving out of the picture gives much more.

Excellent

Nice scenery, but they look over sharpened to me.

Thanks, yes I was a bit 'heavy handed there with the sharpness'. I'll take note for future shots.
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser.

Much prefer pic 1 - for me the other three are too enclosed somehow whereas the openess of the composition in pic 1 means you can apprciate the movement of the palms more, so this is more alive. Again, I like the human element which adds something to it further. Just my opinion, but really like this one

As a matter of interest how much pp do you do with these type of pictures? In pic 1 what sort of settings are you using?

Very nice job!

I am mesmerized by the sky in photos one and four. Your sky in kite-surfer is equally impressive. Not to relegate the water to second class. The water is equally impressive. Where were these photos taken and please share with us a little about the photo including any post-processing. I've been wanting to make my shots stand out.

Thanks in advance.

Think that both are very good but for totally different reasons. Great colours, sky and sea balance plus the branch in pic 1. Pic 2 has so much atmosphere.   

Love them
