Default Oregon coast

took a trip to Cannon Beach yesterday, the weather was disappointing - hazy and cloudy, even though the forecast was for clear skies - but i did manage a couple of shots i sorta like. taken with 5D and Tamron SP24-135, various settings...

looking north from Ecola Point toward Indian Beach...



here's the view south toward Cannon Beach... the mist and low clouds made for pretty poor conditions, but gave some shots a nice, moody feel...

cloud bank in #1 is very special indeed.

and i love the misty effect with the rocks in shot #2. i could imagine this pic would make a nice artistic b&w conversion too.

great set

Both shots convey movement. I especially like #2.

From foreground to midground and then to the background, very tasteful captures from you! The suble hdr job(if I'm not mistaken) in #1 adds a paing-like feel to it...

Default Well done!!

Great pictures of a beautiful and dramatic landscape.

The waves coming in and the heavy fog coming across the shoreline in #1 make some powerful expressions.

And #2 with all its mystery, the ever fading shoreline in the background, and the movement of the heavy swell, and those jagged rocks sticking up - superb!

thank you, gentlemen!

Bahadir, you're correct, this was processed as a pseudo-HDR, using ReDynaMix to bring out shadow detail. good eye!

squirl033,

Beautiful landscape pictures. Some poetry refers to the sky as a sea, the sea of the sky; the skysea. Don't know about the poetic value in English but in my language it's called "himmelshavet" wich is a beautiful word

You can lay on your back watching the skyships pass by and at times the cloudwaves forming. Your first picture reminded of this

I was in the same place on the same day. You definitely "cleaned up" the haze. I prefer #2. The Oregon coast is much more like that.

Great shots,

Garry

Both are wonderful. I think the 2nd would do well as a B&W; the yellow at bottom left is a bit distracting in the otherwise monochromatic image.
