Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Landscape V (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: Kogel Bay, South Africa
Date: Nov 21, 2009
Aperture: f/14
ISO: 200
Shutter: 5 & 20 seconds
Galleries: Landscape, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Nov 21, 2009

My favourite spot for seascapes. Some voters might recognize the mountain formation in the background from one of my previous challenge entries. I was really busy the whole week, and conditions were awful, so this was my only chance to get something for the challenge. I'm happy with the result, but I really hope the voters like it too :)

This is a manual blend of 2 exposures. A 9 stop ND filter was used to get the long exposures.

Thank you everyone for the kind votes and comments! This was one of those weeks where the update button really took a beating :)

Veels geluk! Ek het die afgelope naweek weer verby hierdie ongelooflike landskap gery en weer vir myself gesê hierdie is my gunsteling seetoneel. Die VSA kan maar Big Sur hou!

Holy crud! I just learned something new. I didn't realize that we could combine multiple shots of the same scene. Thought that was for Expert editing only. I'm SO glad I read your notes on this photo (regarding the two shutter actuations/exposures) and proceeded to review the Advanced rules. I just added a new tool to the toolbox!!!

The combo you used worked very well here. Congrats!

Almost has to be a ribbon, this one...

This seascape is beautiful and serene with the soft flowing waves. The rich reddish colour of the light on the rocks, the tumbledown sky over the darker cliffs and the sweep of the blue combine to make this outstanding. Kudos, superb capture.
