Birling gap

By worldseyeview
An early morning visit to the Birling gap offered up a few reasonable shotz for me. Sky wasn't overly interesting but the water was lovely and warm....
Shot is composed of three exposures, merged in photomatix at a very basic level so as to not acheive an HDR look then processed in photoshop.
The weather was warm, the mood was very calm, but you can just feel that the Autumn is trying to creep in.

This was the vibe I was trying to create......

Lovely colour and mood, that is a purple autumn haze if I've ever seen one! My only issue is the left side of the frame looks a bit burnt out, could you have perhaps retained highlight detail in this area?

The exposure looks good to achieve the popular milky effect to the water. The main point I would make is regarding the composition. Taking that the aim is to capture a sea scape the image takes foreground interest to the extreme.. It is a picure of rocks.
Please ignore me it this was your intention. Ian

Milky water, but this one is pretty good and one of the best outdoor HDR that I've seen. Might just sweep the burning in tool across the left water.

This is very beautiful... In fact quite an exquisite image... IB
Beautiful stones. The horizon makes a smiley face. There is also a bit of a glow along the line demarcating a contrast shift. Just the right amount of sky.

To make the composition appeal a little bit more, I feel that a portrait style format may have helped. Doing this with the horizon on the top third would mae good proportions of sky to rocks ration with a dramatic foreground interest created by the rocks.

I also notice lens flare near the big rock on the top-left third of the image, coming from the out-of picture sun of course. Did you use a hood when you took this picture? It's barely visible, but it adds nothing to the image and may even be considered bad technique by some. Coupled with what was already said re: the burnt out left hand side, I think this image could have been improved with a slightly faster exposure (3-4 seconds) and the use of a hood if this wasn't attached.

I like the colours and the mood here, well done.
