This is the first of two shots of much the same scene. Well, to be accurate, it's the first of two shots of almost exactly the same scene, but tomorrow's has been horizontally flipped. Both were shot with a reasonably long shutter speed – this one was five seconds and tomorrow's was 3.2 – but this is definitely the 'softer' of the pair. As always, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts: about each image, and about how you think they compare.
incredibly beautilful shot Dave. what ND filters did you use?
It reminds me of the promo for perfect Storm, but slightly lower on the stormy scale :-)
I prefer yesterday's as there is more detail, but it's still agreat shot and i'm still not bored ;-)
Another great shot! Moon light? Experimenting with aperture and shutter speeds is a must. You can really see the difference between our two cameras' sensors as you get a wider image with the 5Ds sensor compared to my 1DmkIIn. I will just have to take a few paces bacwards.
Love this one - kinda like the first one of the set. I like the softer versions, and I like blue tones so this one is exceptional to me.
I have been following to you for a long time and I have not been able to resist to escribirte, magnificent blog and fantastic photos to me.
I love this series! I found the "abstractions" created by the sea when captured for some seconds a lot, and that alone would have been great for me, but the combination with the amazing sky above, and the coloration, are just great!
This one looks a lot more surreal than the previous ones, I guess because there is no beach/sand/rocks to bee seen... can't wait to see tomorrow's :-)
Very nice tones! Almost like painting with the slow shutter-speed and all. Nice.
To be perfectky honest - I find this shot rather dull.
Many of your shots are simple, but have a seriene & calmin quality, which I love.
This one is just sort of boring.
Still love your work ;)
I absolutely disagree with the latter commenter!
This one deserves soem time to work on you...dó be patient!
Dave, this photograph has a more calm effect than the previous ones...
The sea is like a slowly moving surface of liquid metal...
Though the sky is heavily overcast, it matches the colours of the sea, or vice versa...
There is definitively movement in this photograph!
At first glance this scene is quite bright, but it kind of grows on you while watching it longer...
The dark areas seem to build up their contrasts and seem to turn darker the longer you watch...
A desolate and cool place, of beautyfull lonelyness...
And it is Alive!
I love the tone and the sky in this shot, but I'm not sure if the composition does anything for me.
yeah, love the color and sea surface, terrific!
Mo: I used a couple of Lee ND Grads.
Simon: yep, I do think the full-frame makes quite a difference.
maybe my prefered
