Vanishing Point

By MarkT  
Another from my recent holiday to Florida, taken at Ponce Inlet just south of Daytona. This Jetty is about 3500 feet long, on the left you get the surfers and to the right is where all the fishing is done in the calmer water. I saw quite a few dolphins from the jetty and I wish I was still there now!

F19@ 6sec
ND Grads
Raw ISO 100

Cheers for looking.

Sitting on a jetty in Florida ..... or sitting at a desk in a stuffy office in Coventry? I'll join you Mark.

A good peaceful feel to this shot. The strong perspective is the main point of interest but I quite like the subtle colours too. I'm almost tempted to suggest that you do an alternative version and Photoshop in a low setting sun for extra impact and a stronger focal point. Although maybe not .... pretty much anything goes in the way of digital manipulation as far as I'm concerned, but I do have increasing reservations about manipulating landscapes. It just does'nt seem the "right" thing to do. God but I think EPZ will make a proper photographer out of me yet Sad
