    A second and a first in a "Best of" challenge - that's awesome. Congratulations.

Jan 10, 2017
    Congrats John. Nice to hear about the background for the shot - memories like that are very precious.

    Jade O. - Not sure if my PP, gives you enough info on combining the 3 images. I'll be happy to explain, but not much to it. Nik suite, is now free as far as I know, and it can be used stand alone if gimp does not accept it's plugins. Probably the best set of tools around barring, you standard imaging program

    Thanks Neat, actually I use it all the time, I find it great for adding micro contrast. Works awesome on trees with many fine branches, where the sharpness can be overwhelming.

    Oh this is Cape Town, awesome place indeed! I See you used Glam glow, don't you just love that! I do believe I have never seen you use it before.

Jan 9, 2017
    Congrats John. Glad you had a great time in S.A

    Thank you everyone, for the comments and votes, the result is truly surprising. I got to spend a great time in Cape town area Betty's Bay in South Africa, thanks to my brother Anthony. He rented a place and got all our family together for Christmas, I am truly thankful for that. It was just beautiful, this and many images I took were just steps away from where we stayed.

Also it was a welcomed break from all the snow I've come home to.

Over the next few days I'll post some others in the outtakes.

Thanks again.

    Beautiful view, well composed. In my favorites.

    The colour and detail in this photo are really beautiful. What a rugged shoreline.

Jan 8, 2017
    Nice seascape. I feel like it's missing a bit from the sides. though. Still looks good.

Jan 8, 2017
    Amazing detail in the rocks. Powerful shot.

    I'd like to know how you combined the 3 shots.
This is really nicely done.

Jan 8, 2017
    Very nice landscape! In my faves.

Jan 7, 2017
    I think I like this a bit better than the Main shot. It has a bit more 'dream like' quality. Very nice. Especially the texture of the rocks.

Jan 7, 2017
    Another gorgeous composition. Love the textures of water, rocks, and clouds and subdued color palette.

Jan 7, 2017
    Very nicely executed, but to me the large patch of open water looks like something is missing.

Jan 6, 2017
    Pretty shot. I think I would like to see a bit more contrast between the sky and see.

Jan 6, 2017
    a prefer the other shot . but still a nice result in view of multi images

    Good choice. I love the flowing water in the foreground... Definitely a interesting way in blending multiple images. It is a fantastic image.
