My first attempt at landscapish photography. Critique is solicited and appreciated!! #636528

I love the hugeness of it. There she stands in the midst of all that nature and space, capturing something remarkable, no doubt. I think you did a great job. (Landscapes are challenging for me, so I don't have any "technical" advise on this!) #4211239

Thanks, friend! Yes, it was three hundred and sixty degrees of amazing!! And the wind gusting at forty and fifty miles an hour!! It was heavenly. I'd never done landscapes before... #4211403

Rather frustrating image Sipho! A beautiful scene but now I want to know what I am missing that your friend is photographing! On my only trip to CA.I only spent a few days in San Francisco, so didn't get down the coast to the Big Sur area.
Like Christopher, I have problems with landscapes so congratulations on yours my friend. #4669385

Thank you all! I used a circular polarizer on this photo and did some levels adjustments in CS2. She was actually photographing some idiot tourists that were WAY too far out on the rocks. #4669394
