Seaside Sunset [5 images]

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Winnie, Aug 2, 2007.

  1. On our little child free sabatical to Wales we went to the beach after dinner in hope of a decent sunset. The weather behaved but sadly what looked like a great beach on the map was not accessable at high tide so I had to make do with what was there. It was a good challenge and the rock had great texture to use. Let me know what you think.

    I think using f22 to lengthen the shutter speed caused some defraction and the image is a little soft as a result.

  2. Great Alex. I really like the last three.
  3. The sweeping strata in the cliff scenes give the shots a really dynamic feel but my favourite is definitely the shot with the fisherman. The foreground sets the rest off very well. Excellent.
