Brace for Impact

By blohum  
The tides finally fell into place and I managed to make the trip to Shag Rock from Downderry; only accessible at the extreme of low-tide and it takes a good 20 minutes plus to walk down the beach so the window of opportunity is pretty slim, probably giving you a maximum of about an hour at the rock...

The waves were also in a playful mood, with several gentle waves being interspersed with the odd giant wave as in this image, in fact I didnít even finish this set of 5 images for HDR as I saw this coming and turned and ran... unfortunately not fast enough as I got very wet feet when my wellies were overrun!

This is an HDR image, so the same wave is actually shown twice which I think adds to the drama. I've also added in the clouds as the sky was completely clear... any thoughts on the processing? Too much?

I think you need to get bigger wellies for next time ... waders, perhaps ...

I love the colours here, and in terms of processing I don't think it's too much. Perhaps just a touch less pink in those clouds, but that's a personal taste thing as I'm not what you'd describe as a 'pink girl' Grin

However, what I would like to see is this in landscape format, rather than portrait format. It feels a little bit squished at the moment, whereas I would love to see an expansive view of these 'playful' waves ('playful' he says ... hah!).

Thank you BRITCHIE and Tanya!

With some of the shots I aim for waders would not be a bad idea! Smile I have to say that I struggle with landscapes in landscape orientation... I much prefer taking landscapes in portrait orientation as my mind sees lead-in lines much more clearly that way, I know it might seem a little back-to-front but I guess that's just how I am!
