This is fantastic. It looks so amazingly noise free that it is almost hard to believe it is a photo. The crisp sharpness of the tower and the rocks stands out against the mistyness of the sea and the softness of the sky, fabulous.

Hello LanndonKane,
hum...for processing :
Colors balance correction, levels, sharpen...
Thanks


Wow, the exposure is so perfect I thought you must have done HDR techniques! That's absolutely phenomenal, you must really know your equipment to get such a perfect shot!

Hi Jamie (i see your personnal portfolio, you are so pretty !)
To make long time exposure at broad daylight, you need a tripod & a neutral grey filter (Hoya ND400 now B+W ND 1000)
Thanks ;)

AND...
* LOW ISO (50-200) because the long time exposure is sensitive to a noise !
* Lock the mirror (for reduce vibrations)
:)

This is such a cool image, it almost looks like a painting. I am assuming you did some PP on this, and I really like the way it looks. The colors are very nice and the composition works beautifully.

This is right out of a fantasy. Very dreamy. It almost appears to be a digitally illustrated image, like you'd find in a fantasy film. I love it!

really pretty shot... the rocks and the water both look fantastic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2008 11:34:30 PM
Like the overprocessing (which looks like it was done on purpose, compared to other images that have ruined their result). Great use of thirds and mythical feel. Well Done. Good Luck. 8.

My number one, waw! I love the contrast between the pastel colors of the sky and the sea, in movement on the left, and the brown land staying still on the right. Very brilliant!

Feels too much like a drawing, overprocessed.

What a spectacular location! Nicely executed capture with strong composition. The rocks look great, but I think a little tweaking to the sea & sky would have complemented them more. Beautiful!
