About the Image(s)

Taken with Z7 and zoom lens at f8 and iso200, no tripot. That was a typical day facing pacific with late afternoon sunlight. This is a beautiful spot for ocean view here.

Beautiful shot and tack-sharp focus. The only suggestion I would make is to crop slightly off the left side and more off the top. The empty blue sky draws the eye off the photo and away from the pretty flowers and coastline. I've attached a sample crop.   Posted: 06/08/2020 10:37:02

I agree, a gorgeous spot to shoot from, nicely done.
I would clone out the garbage can on the right and a couple of those bright buildings in the town, just the couple of white ones that draw my eye. I think you could clone out the rock on the far left that goes out of the frame, or crop as Mike suggests. I thought a little less sky too, but I would keep those cool clouds.
Those purple flowers that swoop along the golden sand are just fabulous. love this.   Posted: 06/27/2020 16:31:15

Wow! That is a gorgeous spot and shot. Everything is so sharp. The waves are fabulous. Love the seal lion! It's so funny how we all see different things. The main thing that jumped out at me were the out of focus flowers in the right bottom corner. I would clone those out. Otherwise, I think it's beautiful.   Posted: 06/28/2020 16:50:43

Well done. For the most part I agree with comments of others. If you use LR, I might add a little dehaze and contrast to the sky.   Posted: 06/30/2020 04:33:04
