Took many shots trying to get the right shapes, light and colour. There was all cloud on the horizon which I think helped. Adjusted colour temp, bumped up contrast and saturation in RawShooter. Adjusted Levels in photoshop.

:: Critique Club ::

Love this effect…and you did it well. I really like the overall blue…to get very “critical” I think the blacks are a bit too black…you lose some of the appeal…just becomes a black shape instead of interesting textures…now in your defense it might have been impossible to get the rocks properly lit due to it being very dark and if you let shutter open more to let more light in the highlights would have been blown which would have been a bigger eye sore. So “if” it was possible to get the texture back without ruining the rest of the shot I think that would have made it a bit better. Overall I think you did a fantastic job…great work.

I love the feel of this. The colors are a little off of what I would've expected, but this is still one of my top 5 picks this challenge.

Yes, this works. I love the water/rocks section. The sky looks a little artifical, although who is to say with this sort of exposure.
