Whats possible to criticize here? I love your seascapes, youve certainly honed a technique (pp and framing) that works suprbly every time.

Again, Luis,  this is far removed from my "thing" whatever that is but a) you do with complete mastery and compositionally as well as technically it is a significant achievement and b) like Jorrit (who is not foolish or crazy at all in spite of what some f his more energetic fans say), it is a very welcome contrast on the site, which is pretty much in mourning most of the time ;o))) All greys and dark shadows (lie in my latest upload, ha ha). Nice, funereal galleries we have here and then SMACK, out comes this burst of glorious color...
Keep it up, brother!

Another spectacular offering, Luis... this just could NOT be done more perfectly. The beauty of your project pulls me in and fills me with such a fresh breeze both spiritually and visually... all this without being kitchy... The orange clouds meeting the mauve sky, the famous Luis rocks in the foreground ;-), the impeccable placement of nature's sauvage elements, the superb place itself and this incredible mood reminds me of the famous Matisse dictum that art should be something like a good armchair to rest in from physical fatigue... the Giant Brothers are this armchair, indeed.
I have been thinking a lot about the relationship of art to beauty, how the latter has been more-or-less ousted from the realm of art and how it may slowly gain new ground... we should not think of such oppositions, really--and your work is a testament to that, Luis. That's why many comments you receive these days have to do with your bringing in a "new dimension" to Holik-with refinement. Couldn't be more for it.
Take care,

Luis, this is exactly what we need. I would like to invite the 2 boxers of this afternoon to sit on these rocks, feet in the water and smile to the beauty of nature...

it is said before but the fresh breeze you provide in putting this project on here is amazing, you singlehanded are able to loosen up the dimension here... bravo...
