I see you've used the Lee filter holder system here with a 105mm front polarizer. Does it have any vignetting at 16mm and the front polarizer attached? (I assume you have used a wide angle adapter ring)

Hi,

1st od all sorry the late answer!!
With the lee 100mm + 106 polarizer you will get a small vignette on the corners, nothing that a clone stamp, ou a crop wont fix.

Cheers,
Hugo

Hey!
I'm planning my holiday-photo-trip and I've seen your wonderful photo. So my question is - when did you take this photo? Are there many people in summer so I have to go there in winter? Thanks a lot for your answer!

best wishes,

emats

Hi emats,

The best time to take some photos here is out of summer, because of the footprints on the sand! You have a lot of good skies during spring, autumn and winter! Summer with good luck you have some great magical hours too!!
This is called Adraga, and it's located near Sintra/Cascais, right here:

This beaches have cold water in summer, so there isn't too much people, but you still have a lot of people there.
Cheers,
Hugo

Something about this image is just surreal--maybe the way the sky is almost as dark as the land, or the way the outcrop and bedding planes are skewed. I don't know, but this is beautiful.

This is absolutely beautiful. First, the landscape is great - that's wonderful, but not really your doing, I know^^.

Anyway, there's more! The composition is wonderful, too. The way that rock stands in the middle, more or less framed by those other rocks works great. I don't know if you planned it or not, but the fact that the clouds are lighter directly behind that central rock fits perfectly. Add the soft water that forms some surreal patterns and the beautiful blue tones and you have me speechless.

Somehow the photo gives me the creeps, but simultaneously I want to see more, go closer, stay longer.

You have a challenging way of expressing your unique pieces. Your gallery is of astonishing elegance yet still making a strong statement. You try to get in a piece of your mind in the messeage that the viewer is reciving by viewing your pictures.
I am a quite stunned by your sophisticated gallery. But this one is something other most raw i love it.
