Portman Bay, Costa Calida, Spain by Squealia

Portman Bay, Costa Calida, Spain by 

Another view of Portman Bay, Costa Calida, Spain on the Mediterranean. You can see where decades of mining silted up the bay. Orton effect added.

Nikon D40 18-55mm

    I have been through those periods to celia, to be frank I wish folk would critique my work as opposed to all the ‘oooh ahhhs lovelys etc’ but thats just me – stick with it gal

  • LOL you are one of teh few! I have commented on work where critique was requested, where they have then either not liked the response or removed my comment even when I have put only a slight negative, about one small aspect of it! For example a night shot, where the one negative were some lights over exposed! On an otherwise great first attempt at a night shot! Thanks I am sure I will get my enthusiasm back! I must charge my batteries for the compact camera and get some underwater shots of Hannah! I can just about stand the pool temperature now!

    beautiful scenery!! beautiful with the misty clouds!!!! reading above I agree with you but I don’t see anything to critique here! But I’m not an expert at this either. But I know what I like, so I’m ooing and ahhhing over this one! Ü

  • LOL you made me smile! It was really strange I only took this last week. The mist suddenly rolled it, I have never seen this before in Spain! It can be very frustrating here as the atmosphere never seems really really clear to get great clear shots in teh distance, it always seems hazy, although before I took photography more seriously, I used to comment on how clear it was when you could see for miles and miles! I guess that must be called luck!
