Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

This is Knights beach, Pt Elliot, South Australia. Prior to this shot i was out there in the water bodyboarding, it’s great when you can have a fun surf and follow it up with a fun shoot…heaps of fun really, fun all round.
I have a similar one to this on RB already, which had a longer shutter speed and was tweaked in photoshop (colours etc), and i thought i might just try this one out, shorter shutter, and untouched in the processing department. By the way i found it really hard to not tweak the photo, and i do mean, hard!
Please, Let me know your thoughts.

    Excellent work mate and glad you had some fun :). If it were me, i would lighten the foreground and apply a graduated filter to the sky.

  • Cheers craig, and for the tips. :)

    i like it.. i think tweaking it might do it harm.. sure a sharpen here and there might help pop the rocks out.. but the softness is just brilliant i think. i love the natural tones set from the sun. reflection looks every bit spot on.

  • Cheers Josh , much appreciated
