Comments and feedback appreciated.

These are seascapes as opposed to landscapes. They were shot in Xiapu, Fujian province (China), a hidden gem for photography. It offers different scenes throughout the 4 seasons and during harvesting time will have different scenario. I went there twice and feel like going again. Its never enough.

    An absolutely stunning set! It's hard to pick a favorite. Love the simplicity of 1 and 9.

    Tks Phil,

    Many of them are equally my fav. Personally I also don’t hv a preference of one over the rest. If given just one choice, it would be (1).

    What an awesome set, David! And the other pictures on your site - to say "nice" would be an understatement :-) Very interesting compositions and processing, at every single of them. Most inspiring, thanks for sharing!

    Amazing photos. You started with remarkable subject matter, obviously, but the compositions are excellent.

    Wonderful body of work. I didn't know that there are that many poles in the entire world.

    Hi Guys.

    Tks so much for the nice comments. Very much appreciated for complimenting and encouraging words. Most often I asked abt stupid technical issue in this forum. I’d say this the first major set of pictures I post since 2008 !

    Just WOW. Amazing set. Number 1 was my favorite until I saw number 9 - and then there are the rest of the beauties. I envy your eye, shooting, and post-processing talents. Incredible series of seascapes.

    Wow, wowo, wow!!! These (as well as your other current sets) are fabulous! While I also follow the trend of liking 1 & 9, 2 (the reflection of the clouds on the water!) & 7 (those two colored "kites" in the rather monochromatic scene) both appealed to me very much as well. My least favorite of the bunch was #3 where I feel that the white vignetting is a little heavy-handed.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    Thank you Sara and appreciate very much your comments and your personal view for #3.

    That's what make tweaking a photo interesting, to what extend become acceptable or overdone.
