OK you are getting our attention now!

How about putting us out of our misery and giving us a potted, photographically biased, biography of yourself.
It is clear that you get around a bit.

Biography? There's not much to say, really... I travel, take photos, and sell them to claim a tax rebate on travel expenses and camera gear!

Thanks for that.

I have also discovered from another post that you appear to be based in Australia - is that correct?

Yes - Melbourne.

And, no, I am not Peter Lik.

One of the nice things when I worked in Australia was the liberal tax deductions on work-related expenses, liberally defined.

Really nice water in this shot.

Yes, the water really is quite smooth but textured at the same time.

Orange sunsets like that aren't uncommon in Melbourne, and there's the bay to add in beach/water (which is more often than not choppy), but getting the boat in frame like that is quite marvelous.

That's not Melbourne - it's Zanzibar.

Yes, I know... what I was trying to say (and obviously failed in doing so!) is that whilst the colour of the sunset is not uncommon in Melbourne, the other aspects are and that trying to take the same photograph there would be ... more challenging. Then again, maybe it was in Zanzibar too?

The near graphically flat style, combined with dominantly saturated colors while maintaining 3 dimensional reality for supporting elements, and in this case a strong visual metaphor, absolutely works. Judging from your website, this isn't a consistent style for you yet, but I would seriously consider cultivating this direction of your photography.

If I had a high-end gallery and these prints were truly limited, I would certainly try hard to obtain one or more prints for my art collection.

You caught the Sun like that on digital? However and whichever way, it made my day, as Clint might have muttered; lovely image just perfectly made for 'traditional' All Rights Reserved stock. Would have sold over and over.

Wow!

This was a double exposure - I exposed once for the sky and sun, then waited about ten seconds for the boat to sail into the frame, then exposed for the sea and boat.

I generally don't sell images as stock - only as large, gallery-style prints, usually on aluminium (like Bay Photo's Metalprints). But, then again, photography isn't my main source of income.

I'm not quite sure what that means - I can only capture what's in front of me...

Incredible shot and composition... Can you share some more details on the camera, lens and settings?
