Default Ocean Jetty (shot in moonlight)

Shot of the jetty at night in Avon. This shot was taken at 8pm at night in the dark. The moonlight from a full moon caused an interesting effect. Beautiful




1.

Tv = 8 yes, that long haha (well worth it though)
Av = 4.0
ISO = 400
Auto white balance

Default Another similar effect

Similar photograph.

Using the full moon reflection to snap a long exposure.



2.

Tv = 6 not as long as first shot, probably due to better reflection off the swell
Av = 5.6
ISO = 400
Auto white balance

***Horizon has been corrected and is now straight***

I like the first one. It really has a calming effect. Ya know sit back, relax, and listen to the waves.

Seascapes seldom turn my crank, but not in this case. Great shots with beautiful colors in the waves, in spite of it being shot at night. Well done.

Default Very nice seascapes! I like them a lot:

#1 is near perfection - in fact I cannot see anything that should be different.

#2 could do with some levelling of the horizon, otherwise the ocean will emty itself. And may-be (just may-be...) I would tweek those wonderful clouds a bit...?

What I really miss - when admiring a good picture - is having access to its EXIF-data, so I can learn a little bit every time I look....

Mostly I wonder of HOW long your exposures were.

Thanks for all your comments guys, I'll post the info shortly on those pictures. Feel free to mess around with them if you'd like, not too familiar with photoshop yet.

I really, really like the first one. I attempted to do something with the sky in photoshop, but couldn't get any result I liked better than yours.

Great job!

Sorry, the devil made me do it. I didnt think this pic would be improved any more than it is. I just put it through Shadow/Hightligt and tweaked the Mid tone contrast.

Nice job Bynx, it came out really well.

I must admit I am partial to the mood set with the original, something about the light struggling to overcome the darkness is intriguing.
