Challenge: Wind (Basic Editing II)
Camera: Sony DSC-F717
Location: Oregon Coast
Date: Dec 12, 2004
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/13s
Galleries: Nature, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Dec 14, 2004

One day this week, it was not raining, I went photoging to the beach. Twice, that day, capturing the elusive wind.

Would also like to call it 'Sea Breeze', but the wind is blowing from the east to the west, and a sea breeze is actually from the ocean.

Kinda looks like a flag, blue, green, white. =)

Editing: brightness and contrast, levels, color balance, hue/saturation, neat image, size, usm.

Would like to spot out some of the debris infront, and play with the sky.

A simple three shot made up from three main areas - sky, grass and sand. Simple and appealing.

I love the way the top of the grass and the clouds blur into each other. Beautiful capture.

Just really, really pretty. Makes me want to go to the beach terribly. Lovely shot of the sea grass blowing against a moody blue sky. Love it1

Very nice! I like the softness in the grass and clouds caused by the wind. Good light, too.

I was ready to not like this based on the thumbnail but I really like the textures and colors and I get a feeling of the wind. Nicely done.

Is this the Oregon coast? Great shot! I have one from a few years back. So far the best I've seen.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The colors are great, and it matches the theme well. I'd love to see this with more of an angle to the horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice Composition. Best shrub picture I have seen so far. I really commend you for making such a nice picture out of ordinary shrub.

The subject here is a little on the boring side, but I love the color, texture, and treatment on this shot. 8.

I like this one very much. It's calming and you can almost hear the breeze. Great picture. Excellent use of an extended shutter speed for effect as well. - 9

I like this a lot, almost the best of the grass blowing in the wind entries. My beef with this from an artistic viewpoint is the skewed horizon. Purely an artistic and subjective distraction in my opinion. You and others may disagree, but ultimately that's my final impression. Nice job with the interesting sky and composition otherwise. Tonal range is very pleasing and the image has just the right amount of sharpness, detail, and motion blur. Well done.

The lighting is wonderful - so soft and diffused. The colors of sand, grass, and sky are very appealing to the eye, as are the distinctive bands of layers containing them. The presence of the wind is almost subtle but yet has a wonderful impact on the image. It's simplistic and yet it is possible to look at it for a while.

Very clear, very impressive.

Very well executed, showing the wind with the partial movement, a dead on shutter speed! Good colors.

Beautiful! Is this the Dunes in Provincetown, Mass?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2004 08:35:59 AM
Beautiful.
12/15/2004 05:05:14 AM
Very well done! LIke the soft blue and green color. I really like the dof used. The sharper focus on the grass roots, with wind motion blur on the grass tips, carried throughout the sky. Great composition using the rule of thirds.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2004 02:02:52 AM
beautiful. extra sharp at the roots, motion blur at the tips. great sky, can see some texture in the sand and good balance all around. not sure if the horizon is slightly tilted or if that's just a hill. also, it looks like there may be some sort of figure/house or something right above the grass line on the middle-left. great though, i like it.

I love how well this image captures wind, with the bases of the plants remaining relatively sharp while the tops blur
