Challenge: Clouds (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED
Location: Western Cape, South Africa
Date: Nov 21, 2010
Aperture: f/16
ISO: 100
Shutter: 10 seconds
Galleries: Landscape, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Nov 22, 2010

Near Gordon's Bay in the Western Cape province of South Africa.

Taken at the 18mm end of the lens. Used a 3-stop graduated neutral density filter to hold back exposure in the sky and most likely a circular polariser to increase saturation.

RAW conversion in Lightroom, noise reduction, resize, sharpen and save for web.

Baie Geluk Konrad. Oppad Kaap toe in Desember en wil graag die plek sien wat julle (Philip en jy) so mooi laat lyk. Ek sal dit sonder my kamera doen. Ek wil nie eers probeer om fotos daar te neem nie en net die omgewing geniet.

Al weer julle Kaapenaars met julle mooi strande. Ek was daar laas week maar kon ongelukkig nie met jou of Philip praat nie want my tyd was propvol met familie en hulle wense. Ek was rerig kwaad to ek by Kogal Baai en Gordon's Baai moes verby ry...next time!
Superb work Konrad.
