    That could almost be a painting. Nice one.

    Very nice.. the colours are very vivid; I'm undecided if it is too vivid but I like the shot a lot anyway.

    Only one minor thing: the boat on the left, it's a bit of a distraction for me.

    Wow, epic shot mate :thumbup: Even thought of hanging that on my wall. The other pics on your site are great as well.

    Just curious if you stacked the ND filters and which one's you used, if you don't mind sharing?

    Cheers ;)

    Nice shot. Great colours! My only criticism is that there seems to be a bit too much 'fill light' on the right hand side - I would like to see a bit more contrast there.

    Great photo.

    Personally I'm looking on a laptop screen which cut the image off at the 'o' in christopher and I actually preferred the image with the right side cropped like that.

    It is a bit blown towards the right but hey, who cares? It is bloody epic. Better than anything I'm capable of.

    Nice!

    Probably because the light changes so quickly at sunrise/sunset that the shots from one side of a stitch to the other are going to have exposure discrepancies.

    I like the colours, but the horizon is off.. its slanting to the left (particularly apparent on the far left of the shot).
