Challenge: Sea (not land) (Basic Editing)
Camera: Olympus E-300 EVOLT
Lens: Olympus 11-22mm f/2.8-3.5 Zuiko Digital Zoom
Location: Ft. Bragg, CA
Date: Jul 1, 2007
Aperture: f/4.5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/50
Galleries: Sky, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Jul 3, 2007

Taken at 10 mile Beach near Ft. Bragg, CA.

As the waves would recede it would leave a thin layer of water on the sand that would create this reflection. Combined with the sky it was a breath-taking sight.

Used a circular polarizer on a 11-22mm Olympus lens.

Post-processing included:
Black Clipping
Curves
Color Balance
Brightness
Resize and USM in 3 steps.

post-challenge: Thanks all! I'm glad I could share the northern California coast with everyone!

That's awesome. The little bit of orange on the horizon and in the clouds really adds to the feel of the photo.

Very peaceful. Dunno how it will rate with the challenge description fundamentalists, but for me, this is real nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2007 04:45:08 PM
This is so pretty! I guess one could argue there is too much land in the image, but there's water over that land and I am a softie for lovely reflections so this ranks highly with me!! Nice composition and detail, plus the tones are perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2007 01:19:14 PM
Beautiful... Just perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2007 11:17:08 AM
Too much land IMO - almost half the shot.

Nice sky though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2007 11:13:10 AM
I am trying to decide if this is more about the sky or the sea... It's avery beautiful image certainly. Also you will probably get a few comments about the horizon being centred ...but I do see that it works in this image having a balance of image and its reflection.

07/04/2007 10:51:18 AM
nice picture, i reall like, but your composition is all wrong.
