I am not going to leave a score for this because i am probably too biased. To me this stands for everything landscape photography should not be. Fake, contrived, overdone and lacking in any real photographic skill whatsoever. This type of shot is the same corny rubbish which has been so overdone its not even funny. I have no doubt that my hard words will get slammed to hell. I am not really a purist, just a realist. Pictures or rather art like this convince me to take the opposite end of the spectrum. No doubt it will score highly. Sorry!

Yes, certainly another beautiful landscape taken by a photographer with knowledge and skills to be jealous of. Can't see any reason not to rate this highly.

What is fake about it? PS mods were kept to a bare minimum of adjusting levels and colour balance slightly. Also, where is the lack of photographic skill? Do you not like the composition or anything about it? Your portfolio doesn't really back up your frankly rude remarks either!!!

I love the the sky and water complimenting each other. This image has terrific
mood and is highly deserving of top marks. I think the rude remarks smack of jealousy. I also agree gav's images are in a different league!

My portfolio is far from perfect. I am not an egoist. My shots have many faults. This is straight out of a photography book. As I said I am a realist and you take the other side of the scale. This is not REAL in any way. the oh so overdone long exposure turning the sea into mist, the almost mathematical rule of thirds which have hamstrung this shot. Venture out be different. If you bothered to look at my portfolio you will see some good, ok, and not so great shots. We all make mistakes, you are trying too hard for the "perfect picture". I am not trying to insult you, hence i will not score this.

Yes Gav, please stop posting your frankly skillful work and subject us to endless postings of poorly composed, dull, toneless, uninteresting subject matter.............in the interests of boredom and keeping it uncheesy (don't try and convince me there is skill in that!)

Sorry THIS IS BORING SEEN IT ALL BEFORE!!!! I will make enemies on this but somebody needs to speak out!

So what you are saying is to ignore the rule of thirds, have a poorly composed shot, a poorly exposed shot, and to make my shots look completely lifeless?


Hmmm, think I'll stick to my own style thanks.

"This is straight out of a photography book" - thanks, I take that as a compliment. Wink

Do stick to your style, if you like it great. I am not saying have poorly exposed shots. The rule of thirds needs to be broken and twisted a little. Do we really need to see another sea mist long exposure shot??? Again? It is cheesy and corny sorry! Try something slightly original, a little bit off the wall, but please don't call this photography, because its not. This bears no relation to what was in the viewfinder. As for out of a book, yes the same shot all over again, and again. Pro means earns a living from it, not takes great shots.

Barry, I think you need to go and take some photography lessons with a proper landscape photographer and a handheld spot meter(and an SLR) at different times of day, year and weather...then you will know.....

Great Shot Gav! Detail lost a little in foreground prevents a 10.

This is the sort of artwork I was brought up on as a kid, and this is the artwork I still admire and still get jealous and green with envy over. Pure class imho.
