This is so completely unbelievable… and not in a good way!


1st November 2012 at 8:07 am

Incredible. Keep going

Maybe “just another guy with a camera” – but you DO know how to use it! And this is NOT just another photo! It is simply amazing. No, it doesn’t look like it would to someone standing there, but you have beautifully executed your vision in a striking way (pun intended?). ;)

Totally epic!


1st November 2012 at 8:13 am

Awesome capture! Congrats!!!


1st November 2012 at 8:23 am

Great picture. What lense did you use and at what setting please ?

1st November 2012 at 8:39 am

Well done, I dig the treatment.

1st November 2012 at 9:08 am

Photo of the day, or PHOTO ART of the day? Is it even a photograph?

1st November 2012 at 9:32 am

Amazing!! Fantastic work =) I love the colour contrast between sea and sky

This is a devastating image. Photoshop or no photoshop, it still has the power to move.

1st November 2012 at 9:58 am

Cool image; can hardly believe it is real it is so perfect.

This is not photography, it is computer generated graphics.
This is not Earth Shots.

One of my favorites. Stunning

1st November 2012 at 12:39 pm

I like the sky here.

1st November 2012 at 12:51 pm

Outstanding image!

1st November 2012 at 1:20 pm

Almost unreal! Great shot. The lightning in the center fits perfect.

I like the reflection of the lightening in the sea~~brings it all home.

1st November 2012 at 2:15 pm

Technically I don’t think this shot is possible in a single exposure. I thought the idea of this site was minimal manipulation?

I agree its a beautiful image but I think it goes against what I expect to see on this site.

1st November 2012 at 3:10 pm

Beautiful !!! perfect shot, congratulations!!!!

1st November 2012 at 3:30 pm

Amazing and beautiful capture. It makes me wonder how long you were there and how many shots it took. You netted the big one!

What a wonderful and surreal photo, Mr. Bocasan.

This is something that always bugs me, so I’ll ask; is it olay to download the photo for a background on my monitor? I feel like a crook when I do this, when there is no “hey, grab this image and share it!” sidebar.

Yes, I’m kinda anal like that; I lost quite a bit of money invested in iTunes music after I re-installed Windows and found out that transferring the song files onto a disc or other media was not only encouraged, but a vital necessity. I thought of it as somehow stealing. D’oh!


1st November 2012 at 5:01 pm

This is an amazing and inspiring photo.

1st November 2012 at 5:24 pm

LOVE it! And, everyone here knows (or should) that if you’re going to take the time to set up and wait (and wait & wait & … ) and take a gazillion shots looking for the ‘right’ one, you’re not going to post it straight out of the camera. The development of photographs is part of the art. I think this is freaking amazing! Bravo!

1st November 2012 at 6:59 pm

wow. that is a fantastic picture. I just got your web site off of a top ten photography blog list, you defiantly deserve the #4 spot! did you use any editing, and if so what software? i have been sadly running without any editing options, and i need some advise for what might be a good purchase. (:
