    Interesting composition, very different!

  • LOL!! yeah – I know it’s similar to Slippery when wet … I think I got fixated with these holes in the rocks!!

    Instant Fave! Love the shot, the tones, the perspective!
    Again my friend you have mastered a subject, Landscape and Seascape should be checked off your list!

  • Thank you so much … you’re just way too sweet!
    Far, far, far away from mastering any subject ….. everytime I log onto RB I see how much more there is to learn.

    Oh my….the brown tones are wonderful and the movement of the sea is fantastic, especially how the water curves around the rock on the left…another fave!

  • Thanks so much Roxanne …. I shot a few waiting for the water to swirl around both sides of the rock …. glad you noticed and liked it!

    Nice shot Vik, can you bring down the highlights a bit on the right hand side of the waves. Just looks a little blown to me – but fixable. Movement is great, like the jump from foreground to rock to rock… but the highlights just need a fix

  • Thanks Dean ….. I’m temporarily working on a diff monitor and was relying purely on the histogram to show me if there was any clipping. I’d adjusted levels to ensure there wasn’t any clipping on the highlights and it looked ok on this monitor but I guess I need to rely more on the visual rather than the histogram … will wait for my monitor back before I do more editing.
    BTW – the jump from foreground to middleground … it isn’t too drastic? (with both the grads in the play, it’s almost like 5 stops!!)

    plus your horizon is slightly wonky – but apart from that my friend! ;op nice one.

    (p.s. I’m in critique mode and expect the same in return)

  • Thanks … I too had thought that and checked, but it wasn’t the horizon (measured from the edge to the sealine on both ends), it was the rocks in the foreground that were at an angle and that made your eye feel that the horizon was off. Anyway … did some adjusting to make it not look so.

    How marvelous. What a stunning capture my friend. I love the colour and the movement. Beautiful detail in the foreground. Did you get wet? LOL!

  • Thank you so much my friend – I got soaked!!

    Ha – you know what now looking on the monitor at home and the highlights are perfect… did you replace the image? if not – you can DELETE my comment from above. my monitor at home now shows the highlights I was talking about before to be perfect… just goes to show – everyone might get a different view of the image depending on what they’re viewing it through.

  • Nah – I did move the tones the tiniest, tiny bit …. your point made me realise that it might also be viewed on non-calibrated monitors and that it was too close to the edge.
