This has to be one of the most photographed locations on the Monterey coast. Again, I was using the Ultra Wide Sigma 10-20mm lens at 10mm. The green branches at the bottom of the photo were about 2-3 feet away. I love the way every element in this shot seems to be pointing to the middle of this scene, even the clouds.

This is a 16x9 crop taken at 16mm.

Hi Steve

Wow, both are great photos. I also have the 10-20mm Sigma lens, and it's great for these dramatic effects at wide angle. The coastline there is spectacular!! Lovely colours and contrast.

I agree with you, the first photo has a lot of elements point to the centre of the composition, it really draws the eye in.

Well done.

Paul

Perfect! Both are beautiful shots. I have photographed scenes similar to this near Coos Bay, Oregon but they didn't turn out this good!
