This is the first in the sequence of three tidal pool shots. Taken about 15 minutes before my last upload. The water has just started to flood the pool. I particularly liked the way that the bright band of cloud mirrored the pool railings. This was a 2 minute exposure, shot with the 3 stop Lee ND.

The Long exposure works well in this gives a surreal foreground.
Well worked.

I've actually been speaking to the guys at the gallery that sell my work today. They're going to do a window display and it's going to focus on the recent mono work that I've done, with these three images as the main centre piece. The thing is I've done a couple of prints but am going to get them done again with a slight adjustment to the toning. They just didn't look right. Very difficult with this kind of image to translate what looks good on screen to what looks good on paper. There's much less leeway than with colour I think.

Yeah, I can imagine - I'm sure it'll look superb when you get it right though!

I bet the guys who built these pools never thought for a moment that they'd provide such wonderful subject matter for photographers years later

Very classy Mike. Even stronger as a square crop I feel?

These recent square crop b/ws look great together as thumbnails on your portfolio page, so I'm sure the prints will be fantastic hanging next to each other!

I must try my hand at long exposure b/ws some time, although I sometimes think this sort of thing doesn't get the attention it deserves around here.

Steve.

One feature I wish they'd add to DSLRs is a variable viewfinder option, where you could select different aspect ratios. Still recording the full frame image of course but it would really help when composing the images to see the intended aspect ratio through the viewfinder. I'm sure that, especially with live view models, this wouldn't be a particularly complex addition.
