Challenge: Free Study 2012-09 (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenges 2012
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Manhattan Beach pier
Date: Sep 30, 2012
Aperture: 7.1
ISO: 125
Shutter: 1/800
Date Uploaded: Sep 30, 2012

Shot this morning, the last day of September. Shot into the sun, which is one of my favorite things to do. Wickedly overprocessed with "Bleach Bypass" in Nik Color Efex, and cropped to cut out the huge sign warning against eating contaminated fish (people do fish off the pier, in the same proximity where people surf - I wonder how often people get hooked!)

This is entry #500. Have not yet decided if there will be a #501. I suspect a 5.7ish/50%ile type of score. So surprise me, DPC. Let's see what this will do....

Post challenge:

Ha. Yep, 5.7 and 56%. So there you have it!

Ha!! Just noticed the commenter average. I'm going to take that as a sign!

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Wow, look at the light here - I do look at the figure and the lamp post but your leading lines take my eye to those distant high palms with their shadows cutting through the haze - it has a cinematic quality about it.

Critical stuff: The figure could do with a little more space to the right.

Overall: Glorious light, perfectly judged exposure. I like this a lot.
