Challenge: High Contrast IV (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Hvaleyri, Hafnarfjordur
Date: Jun 25, 2009
Aperture: f/20
ISO: 50
Shutter: 30sec
Galleries: Landscape, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Jun 30, 2009

Taken on one of my many trips to the Hvaleyri beach (which is normally under the sea. When the tide is out, then marvellous small streams can be seen and when the sun is going down, the reflections are beautiful.

This was edited mostly in Lightroom, with blacks, fill light, wb, recovery, contrast and more. Final touch in PS.

Now this was a surprise! In my wildest dreams I didn´t think that a score of 6.585 would land me a blue ribbon. BUT HEY, what the heck, a blue is a blue, and it´s my first one so I´m happy!!

Thanks everyone!!
