Polders

By KevinGoodchild    
A truely inspirational morning last weekend,
after 4 hours sleep I wasn't really up for this... 1 hours drive later and I looked down on this scene, it was a bit of a wow moment ...

many thanks to FLINDT and dp for guiding me to this area


EDIT : - adding some details

camera 20 secs @ f18, 0.9 ND grad
capture one - tweak in curves and a little extra saturation.
Photoshop CS3 - added a soft light layer at 20, noise reduction mask, sharpening mask, border.

this is spectacular in its simplicity. the nice graphic nature of the cloudless sky flat calm sea & the way the posts draw the viewer into those rich warm colours is classic. such subtle beauty is awesome.

one for the expo!
