Shot with a Nikon D70 at f22 with a 28-90 lens. This was before the big storm at New Years 2005-6.

Hi,

Welcome to the forum.

The shot seems very noisy - what ISO were you using here?

I really like the colour of the blue sky - very nice and the waves make really nice shapes. Can't help feeling like it is off horizontal? Maybe a degree to the counter-clockwise would help?

I lilke this. It's got a real surreal feel about it. Can't say any more other than I like it.

Regards,

Syd

Dom, I do not see tha noise but your are right about the horizon. I never noticed that. I used 200 ASA.

Syd, I am glad you like it.

Hi,

ASA = ISO... 200 should be fine. Not sure if it is due to the resize but the sky looks quite grainy. I do however like the picture.

I think it's more likely to be haze from the sea and also perhaps diffraction limitations making it a bit soft at f22.

Of course it could also be resizing.

Remember that anything smaller than f14 or so on the crop SLRs will likely suffer some diffraction problems.

Dramatic shot though!

Aha! Now I shall tell all. I added the sky to a black and white image. The black and white was made from a color using Channel mixer. At my senior age, I do not, and did not see the noise. I doubt it would bother me if I could see it. I have to use f22 because I am using an old lens on a digital Nikon. It only seems to work if it is attached and stays at f22.
