Default Experimental Seascape taken with a CPL

After pouring down rain, and an over night freeze, today can packaged with a bit of sunshine for a change. Because a classic line of building cumulus clouds dotted the shore line nicely, I mounted a CPL on the FZ40 and got this shot. I have also attached a link to a full resolution copy of this photo here:

This was shot from our breakfast table.

As always a great photograph

What settings did you use?

Looking at what you suggested in your start-up (fz40) guide, and what LTZ suggested in another link the settings are slightly different.

Is it down to photo subject or your preference?


LTZ..............................................Y ours

all intelligent options turned off
contrast +1 (+2 for B/W)................. 0
sharpness +1 (+2 for B/W).............. +2
saturation 0................................. -1
N/R -2......................................... -2
AWB 3 clicks to blue
3 clicks to green

square one-

The photo was taken using the "P" or Programed Auto, with EV at-0.3. There are no "hard and fast" camera settings, at least for me, as every camera environment is bit different. I also shoot my FZ40 at 10.5mp rather than 14mp. However, I do not see that as a big deal

Gary/L'duck-

I am located 20 miles north of the California border, obviously on the coast line. That is right near where they film lots of TV commercials, take photos for Oregon postcards, and those photo used by the Oregon State Department of Travel.

Joe Bananas-

We have a different kind of coast line here than in Australia, but I have many fine seascapes taken along Australia's Gold Coast. Thanks for the nice comments from everyone.

As we got into the "Golden Hour," the hour before sunset, I decided to take another seascape photo. This one was with the Sony H2in the "P" or Programed Auto Mode, and vivid color, as I did not have a CPL to fit the H2.

This makes a nice contrast to my first photo which was taken to the west, while this new photo is more south southwest in terms of direction.

As usual, here is a link to a full resolution copy of the photo.
