    A image in one of my favorite coastal peaces of Portugal (Costa Vicentina, Porto Covo). Here i was almost completely in the water playing with the shutter and motion of the sea.

    Hi Luis

    Beautiful palette of colour and dynamics here, Well done..! My eye move into the image LRC, follows the water flow out to the rocks on the left, then back to the RHS and around again.. Wonderful..!! My only niggle (and its totally nit picking) is that I am not completely satified with the rocks, I think they could be a little lighter although it looks like you might have lifted them already as there seems to be a slightly darker Halo around the edges...

    Nice color blends, like the low angle, water motion is nice. ~ MT

    With the changing hues from yellow on the left to blue on the right and how the water renders in this long exposure, it really looks like a fan to me and I find it very interesting. I really like the composition; it's very different from most seascape I have seen. Great job, Luis. I have several near miss with this type of sea shot where I almost lose my camera falling into the water but it's worth it.

    I really like this, Luis. We are so used to see the sweeping view over the ocean, and this low angle almost submersed in the water really gives a fresh perspective.
    Lovely gentle processing here, works for me.

    Hi Luis - The low pov really takes this up a notch and makes it a bit different. Good thinking in the field. I too like all the different colors and the bit of blur from the ss. Nicely done.

    TFS,
    Rachel

    This is lovely in every way from the soft light to the great colors to the image design to the moving water blur. That yellow is to die for.

    Were you on a tripod???

    A little late to the party but what a wonderful image I love the color pallet as well as the tonal value of the light. This needs to find a home on a wall a nice 20X30 print on aluminum would be my choice.
