Excellent shot, Monika...the birds are a wonderful bonus! #155455

Monika Sapek level-classic August 06, 2004

Thanks so much, Ellen! I am really pleased you like this image. Landscape photography it still a huge challenge for me and I work, on improving it any time I can.

Carolyn J. Connolly level-classic August 06, 2004

Wonderful, wonderful image Monika!! You seem to be getting GREAT results from all your landscape 'practicing'!! I also love the birds, but I just love everything about this photograph - and the sepia monochrome effect is just beautiful! Very, very well seen and taken Monika...keep up the great work! :-) #691649

Jennifer Rennison August 06, 2004

Great misty mood to this sunset, beautiful, Monika! #691749

Monika Sapek level-classic August 06, 2004

Carolyn, maybe you will be a little surprised but this is not sepia toning ;-). You can see a little blue in the water. My husband liked this image so I give it try and submitted. Thank you for your very nice comment, Carolyn!

Jennifer, indeed it was very misty and a very nice sunset that day. Hiding in the shadow of this sea stack it gave me different look on this place, which I like very much. I’m glad you took time to comment, Jennifer! Thank you!

This is so beautiful Monika~ I can feel the mist on my face.. I'm assuming this is on the Olympic Peninsular? #691928

Hi Monika What A Great Comp!! A Huge Challenge?Yea Right!!LOL!!This Looks Very Profesional Your Husband Picks Them Well, The Shimmering Water And That Touch Of Color Looks So Good:-) #691936

Monika Sapek level-classic August 06, 2004

Susan, yes this image was taken in the Olympic National Park. I was there last week with my family and had a really great time exploring these places again. I love seashores and the sound of the ocean. Thank you for your comment, Susan!

Terry – You are really kind! You take so much time to write the comments on my photos! Thank you so much for that!!!
I tell you that my husband is very picky if we’re talking about my photos. There was a time when he was happy with them, then he started getting bored, and then he really challenged me ;-). Today I must do something really cool to get him attention. Tough life, isn’t it? LOL….

Cathy Gregor August 06, 2004

This is great.... the water's edge leads me deep into the picture.

Cathy, Cindy, and Jim – I want to thank you very much for your wonderful comments on this image! I am really happy seeing that some of my landscape photos can get attention from the others! It’s a thrill because I know how tough they are to do to me! Thank you!

It's a great composition with lots of mood and high technical quality, Monika! Good luck:-) #693524

Karen Engelbreth August 07, 2004

WOOOOOW - wonderful, Monika! #693630

Carolyn J. Connolly level-classic August 08, 2004

Hi again Monika! Thanks for the feedback... I didn't actually think that you had sepia-toned your beautiful image - I guess I just expressed myself incorrectly by saying "the sepia monochrome 'effect'"! What I was actually meaning was that you were fortunate enough to capture that sepia 'look' when you TOOK your photograph! Once again Monika, a really gorgeous image! :-) #694059

Monika Sapek level-classic August 09, 2004

Mette, Karen, and Carolyn – I want to thank you for your generous and kind comments on this image! Always a pleasure to hear something from you! Thank you!
