Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Sand (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: St Kilda Beach, Melbourne Australia
Date: Jan 5, 2009
Aperture: F11
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/100
Galleries: Water, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Jan 4, 2009

The Image: Used a Polariser to really get the intensity in the sky. Held the camera down low close to the water.

The Edit: Curves, levels, USM, Colour Balance etc, etc, etc

The prediction: I think this might bomb...5.6??? I like it as it has the look of a miniature ocean

Post Challenge: This did better than I thought, so well done Enz! Yes, the camera did get wet after this shot...and the subsequent 30 I took! My T Shirt was the cloth I used to wipe the water off the filter on my lens.

You've got more intestinal fortitude than I have to get your camera this close to splashing ocean! Great life in this shot.

Love the frozen motion of the water and the deep blue of the sky. Too many people go for misty blurred water these days, it's nice to be reminded of the dynamism of water.

perhaps a bit too much contrast and sat boost...

Very nice. Colors and motion. Maybe the dof is too shallow, and the band of focus too small, but a lively capture.

Great Color, the way the image is lit I am left wondering what made the shadow
