Seaweed Corner by Garth Smith


Available to buy on…

Such an ordinary name for such a colourful image I know but thats the way it is sometimes.
Near Stanley is a little corner of a beach that the locals gather seaweed from for the garden.
It happens to be a great spot to watch the sun disappear from the sky.
West Inlet, Stanley.

Nikon D90
Sigma 10-20mm
Colour straight from the box untouched.
Sharpened in NX2.

    Beautiful color saturation and composition. I aspire to taking shots like this with my new D90. Beautiful work.

  • Thank you DilettantO.
    Its easy really. There is one answer to how I managed to capture this image.
    I bracketed the exposures til I got the perfect histogram for what I was working with. Then I changed my settings as the light dropped.
    And I shifted the camera around all over the place looking for a composition that worked.
    Damn clouds made it hard as they kept shifting.
    So basically this is the only shot out of about 30 variations that works properly for me and even then I didnt quite get the focus right because I had it set hyperfocally for 10mm but shifted to 20mm without changing the focus.

    Wow simply wonderful love the light and colours but it is the textures and rocks near the foreground that grab me. : )

  • Thank you very much Karen, yes was a fine line I trod between foreground detail and blown sky highlights.
