Challenge: Free Study 2012-08 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-50D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Muir Beach, CA
Date: Aug 13, 2012
Date Uploaded: Aug 28, 2012

As Vikas mentioned, :) I really need to thank the people in the Out and About thread I posted before taking this trip, especially 21_N.gif BrennanOB, and 21.gif Bear_Music for suggesting Muir Woods and Pt. Reyes. I try to visit the Bay Area once or twice a year but have never been to these places. They're both beautiful.

The person on the rock was having his friend shoot some pictures of him while standing there. I was just lucky to be in the right spot when he was doing this.

This is an outtake from Pt. Reyes that I considered submitting this month but wasn't quite happy with it.

Beautiful processing, Mark. I know that place well and have tried to capture its beauty many times. Never to this lovely extent, though.

Congrats mark! The best part for me is the color of the ocean, in the context.
It's a beautiful image, probably nothing like the original; it's what you took with you in your mind.

Very ominous.

I love the sense of vastness and scale the tiny figure gives this but I must admit that without your title, I would never have seen it and the impact of the image would have been left to the glow and shimmer of the tones. Voted earlier.

Mystical and magical. Great 'rules' image. Odd gold/yellowish glow but appealing.
