Some of the photos are breathtaking.

Unfortunately the phytoplankton (shown in the photo of Gotland) is a serious problem in the Baltic sea (farming's the main culprit). Looks gorgeous from a satellite though.

I loooooove photography, but I've always felt that digitally altering pictures is cheating. Like you couldn't get a decent shot as a photographer, so you use effects to make up for your inabilities.
