I really like the viewpoint on #1, #2, and #4. There is a very nice glow on the rocks and the water really adds to the scene. However, this image elevates itself way above what a normal photographer would take. Thus when you compare it to the "Into the Blue" image which is the same class as this one, the sky determines the major difference. The "Into the Blue" photo the sky really adds to the scene, in this one there is to much transition from white to light blue to blue within a limited amount of space. Thus the way the colors (colours) interact with each other in the sky is almost to harsh in my opinion. You set the bar high with your initial photograph of this scene. This is by all rights is another great photo, but if it were me, I would re-shoot when the conditions were more favorable. Sorry my friend, but when you achieve this level of perfection, this image deserves all the attention you can give it. Of course you may take this with a grain of salt because I'm being very nit picky here...

These are stupendous and astounding by composition, light, color, texture and details. I am speechless really. The dynamic range in #1 and #4 is awesom!

Well done, Dustin - you are a "beacon" for us amateurs!

Thank you Jehan. I am glad you enjoyed the color and my compositions. I really enjoyed this shoot. I noticed the curvature too, was at max wide angle and i didnt fix the distortion in raw. it didnt bother me terrribly. but i figured i would get a comment. i can fix it easily next time.

Thank you Ordo for the kind words.

Ancient, thank you for your commentary. I have already planned to reshoot with a nice textured sky. We just haven't had that yet, its either raining or clear as a whistle. Or about to rain, like "into the blue"

I plan to visit this area alot, there are many rocky piers to shoot and many conditions i want to shoot them in. Stay tuned!

Walter, thank you for the most generous comments. As much as you state that I am a beacon for you, your shots of norway are a constant source of inspiration for me (and many others) as well

Wonderful set. I particularly liked the 3rd shot. Seem's like you're having some fun with the camera

Hards,

I think the EPL-1 and the change in tempo with work has really ignited your creative streak. The posting form the last couple of days are fantastic.

thanks shoturtle. not having my dissertation hanging over my head, and then moving and getting a new camera really invigorated my shootings. and the epl1 is just such a joy to carry with me, no reason not to have it.

That is always a good think, and for the rest of us a added push, MORE PHOTOS TO LOOK AT.
