My apologies for not posting for a few days, but as always, things have been a bit hectic.
As for this shot: it was taken last night on Fleetwood beach and I used a two stop graduated ND filter to darken the sky; i.e. to balance it with the foreground illumination, and a three stop ND filter to get the slower shutter speed.
OMG can i say only
C'est absoluement genial! Superb! Wonderful :)
It will certainly retain a place of honor in my bookmarks ;)
Amazing! More of that!
Very nice indeed :)
much beautiful, like always ... ;-)
Ian says he likes it and that it looks like a painting, he also loves the detail in the foreground. As for me, I would just like to take off and fly towards the light, looks like a very inviting silver lining.
really cool photo.
Great lighting and I like the contrast between the relatively static sky and the blurred movement of the water. Nice link between the break in the clouds and its reflection in the water.
Lovely. The movement in the water is beautiful and the sky a fab mixture of tones.
A well composed and thought out shot. Love the mood created by the dark sky and silky sea. The only thing I would change is the crop, think I'd like a full portrait and a bit closer to the sea, you know, a lower angle. other than that brilliant :)
This is exceptional. Very moody. Excellent work.
great ambientation. Beautifull colours.
Somehow you have the nose for special moments in seemingly ordinary places...
The aperture in the sky and the light on the waves...
The milkyness of the textures in the sea...like a slowly moving ectoplasmic presence...
The grad/ND filters work out beautifully!
Almost a biblical scenery...
Nice shot. Moody and dynamic comes to mind. I like the sense of motion in the water contrsated against the stillness in the sky. I like the tones as well.
Beautiful shot. I love the blurriness of the water and those clouds are incredible. Nicely done.
"Let there be light"... wonderful, wonderful... :)
Best picture for a very long time David, I'm going to think about buying this print. This is wonderful stuff!
Absolutely fantastic. Great atmosphere. Looks like the sea was a kind of a strange being conquering beach.
Amazing shot. What strikes me the most is the softness of the image, although it's kind of rugged and rough.. Nice!
I'm just curious. What time is this taken?
Beautiful shot. I'm impressed.
Wow, beautiful picture. I almost believe in angels.... ;-)
Very nice. I like the dramatic sky and the monotone style. Regards.
Thanks for the explanation on the filters. It amazes that even with two filters, f22 and at 8:48PM it worked out to a 1.6 second exposure... seems like it should be longer!
Wow! This is amazing. The movement in the water seems to be mimicked by the clouds, like some sort of dance. Absolutely fantastic.
Like Ronald said: "Almost a biblical scenery..."
I'm almost expecting to see Moses riding a surf board on one of the bigger weaves. :)) Narly.
As for the tehnical accomplishments, I think every thing worth mentioning has been said. Congrats. :)
Today you are officially Turner! Amazing capture...
Strange and beautiful tones, and colors..Well done..Bravo!
Truly Amazing!! The interplay of elements here make this simply a brilliant capture!
I just gaped in awe.
Cool result you've gotten here. The sea and sky look really menacing :-)
wow. stunning image and i like the desaturated tones. a very moody image!
Awesome shot. The shape of clouds, tones & colors are awesome.
I have to say the mystyness in the middle of the sea is what does it for me :)
I like the perfect storm feel to it.
Best shot thats been put up here for months, seems a little noisy though.
Your heaven is so beautiful with great atmosphère!!!
Look at mine... ;)
More or less Aivazovsky.
