Lovely shot! That is a wonderful view and shows the depth of the shoreline fading into the horizon very well. THe H1 really does a great job from what I have seen! I used a DSC F717 for a couple of years and still have it.

Do you live near that coast? I bet the sunset is gorgeous there also.

I think this is a great shot, but technically, and esthetically. Even though it shows the waves crashing into the shore, I find it to be very relaxing to look at.

Very nice. You could have even used in in the Vanishing Point challenge.

Thanks, Trique and Cal for your comments.

Trique, I live some what near the cost (35 minutes from Santa Cruz). However, the North beach is about 2 1/2 hours drive from home. So, going there is a day trip, unfortunately. It's a beautiful place to visit. Yes, the H1 handles just about anything real well. It's the best camera I've ever had (and I've had way too many).

Cal, although I too findbeach a relaxing place, the North beach is always very cold and windy, to the point where I could not keep the camera still (thanks to the H1 IS, 99% of the shots were good). So, I'm not sure it is indeed relaxing!!!

Tullio,

Very nicely composed. Love the sweeping vista incorporating the blue ocean and those waves. Those waves are to die for.

I suspect that this would look even more aesthetically pleasing in its original format wihtout any loss of quality due to compression artifacts.

Aloha

Thanks Walter and Selvinfor your comments.

Walter, I took many pictures of the Ocean from that location and I did think about the Vanishing Point. However, I did not feel confident it would qualify because of the lack of "true" parallel lines. Idid post a different shot in the Landscape forum a while back.

Selvin, you are absolutely correct. Those waves are to die for...from freezing!:lol:They are sooooo cold that make your bones hurt. This is no Hawaii by any stretchof imagination.That's why we go toMaui on vacation everyyear instead of coming to the North Beach!!!

The foreground makes a nice angle with the dreamy horizon.
And the landscape on the left-handside especially makes a 'seen from the airplane' effect over the wing-like foreground ! Well done Tullio

Then try also the landscape or architectural forums above :blah: You'll not get dissatisfied. You see I'm an orthodox man who feels best in his territory :lol:
