My first attempt at a long exposure, taken 30mins after sunset.
All comments and pointers for improvement very welcome.
ISO 100, f/22, 44 secs (bulb).
No filters used on camera(as I dont have any) so selective filters used in PS in an attempt to level exposures followed by a low level of digital velvia to try and a little punch to the photo.
Wow, now that is some shot, excellent, love it, stunning.
Just superb shot!!!
Very good i like the open feeling. The long exposure has given the water and etheral feeling- which is great.
However i think that the top right is just a little bit too empty (an apropriate boat would look great- silhouetted of course)
This is already a fine photograph Adrian. For the purposes of discussion, perhaps the headland and rocks could be lightened - just a fraction - to bring out a little more detail? (Difficult to tell without trying).
I'd give you no advice for improvement, Adrian - accept it as the excellent shot that it is!
As above no advice needed a job well done.
not bad eh? clixxxxx
This is a good shot but whats "digital velvia" ?
I'm sorry, you don't need any advice. Just keep taking more of the same stuff!
Really great shot, super colours and nice composition.
You've inspired me to have a go at a similar long-exposure shot myself! Excellent.
Thanks to everyone for your comments and advice. Though I am quite pleased with this pic, I feel there is something missing, probably in composition.
Aidan. 'Digital Velvia' is a technique used in PS to try andemulate the saturation achieved with Velvia film. For more info on the subject take a look at this thread.
Thanks Adrian. As I said, I do like this shot, but maybe it needs more forground interest, or maybe (as shed said) a boat or something. Still, lovely colours n'all.
Have you tried any star trail shots?
Any way, i like this, well done
Beautiful picture,well done.
Whassa matta you! Why do you think this needs improving. It's absolutely awesome - the colours are superb. You've done a great job here and the long exposure has really made an impact. Just keep clicking away - you know what they say about beauty - in the eye of the beholder and all that. Well, capture what appeals to you and you'll not go far wrong.
Keep up the good work. Look forward to seeing more.
Nice one Reg.
Well, I love the space between the rocks. The sea is vast and this conveys a sense of openess and lightness. Den
Very nice. I too don't think you need advice, save to say continue to take more like it. John
Adrian, can see what you mean about something missing but this more than holds its own as it is. A quality shot
Thanks to all for your kind comments, encouragement and advice. I will definitely be giving this another go soon.
What else to say than this is a very good taken Image. Well done.!
Looks perfect to me.
Al, a special thank you for taking the time to look through my portfolio and leaving comments on some of my older shots.
Excellent shot great colour CLICK.
Excellent colouring to this one Adrian. The long exposure has given an atmospheric feeling to it, and a calmness to the sea which is very appealing.
Guess that add up to: it works
Great shot - can't use too much of that digital velvia. click. Cropping off the sky just above the headland makes it into an interesting panoramic as well. click.
Its a lovely shot Adrian. Click! Steve.
This is great shot, very inspiring. I am very much looking forward to getting a camera with wwich I can make long exposures as well.
I would like to see a little more foreground detail, but you've captured a very atmospheric image all the same.
