I'm new to DPChallenge, but this photo caught my eye. It looks just like the rocks at one of my favorite spots on this earth, on a Maine island that I visit each summer! So I was not surprised to find that it was taken in Newfoundland, just a stone's throw up the coast. Beautiful shot!

I'm just a beginner at photography, but I rated this high and thought for sure it'd be a winner. BUT, I'd really like to learn how you processed this one. Do tell!

Wonderful image, congrats on your ribbon!

Nice composition. Well done on the result. I notice all your winning images are shot in a high ISO mode. You must have to be careful with the noise issue. This one looks like it was processed using strong noise reduction software at a fairly aggressive setting.

how did you get the softness in the clothing and rock? I really like it and it doesn't seem natural
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great work!!

10/22/2006 11:11:39 PM
Lovely idea, poses, composition, colors, sharpness, and DOF. Leg tucked in might be better, but that's a nit. I love the feeling of family, sharing, belonging...

I get some strange feeling of comfort looking at this picture, i think i've lived this moment myself. I can hear the roar in the ocean. Great!

Beautiful! Love the wave. I'd say to show a little more connection have her arm around the boy or her head tilted towards him. Great processing.

Very eye-catching. Nice smoothy effect (can you tell I'm new to this? hee hee) on the people in contrast to the rocks. Also really like the color fade.

This should be a blue ribbon for sure, at least it is in my book! Absolutely stunning! Everything about it... perfect! Love how they seem to be looking right at the big wave rolling in. Like the soft highlights and colors . Really makes me miss the shore even more! Beautiful! 10!!!!!!!
