One of those locations you just never get tired of seeing pictures from. Smile

very nice processing, what noise reduction software have you used as I'm trying to find a good one at the mo?

crickey where do i start on this one..... the atmosphere captured is simply exquisite, the long shutter creating the milky effect and the glistening foreground rocks are beautiful. Composition works nicely, stepping on the rocks through to distance right peak on the third.
The righthand side of the image does finish rather suddenly and doesn't flow as well as the left hand side, but thats being rather picky for what is a wonderful image, and in my opinion one of your best.

Top work.

As good as it gets at Elgol, excellent image worth the loss of a tripod end.
Superb work Ian, your deep images are quite spectacular at times, this one is gorgeous with the pink light and lovely wave motion.

Thanks, everyone, for your fantastic comments.

And many thanks, Dougie, for your UA. It means a great deal to me. You've lifted the gloom on this dark and wet Friday 13th!


Quote:what noise reduction software have you used as I'm trying to find a good one at the mo


Angie, I tend to use Noise Ninja, but for this long exposure PS's own noise reduction filter didn't seem as unsubtle as it normally is. I applied the PS noise reduction to a layer and then erased the reduction from the foreground rocks and mountains. Smile

Kevin, Terrific comment re the right hand side - it was something that niggled me at the time. In retrospect it would have made more sense to introduce a little more beach into the composition to remove that congested "going nowhere" feel. Something to bear in mind for the next visit!
13 Nov 2009 10:36AM
Wonderful image indeed - superb foreground detail and tonal quality !

Wow! This is outstanding, Ian, and every inch a delight to view. There are so many elements to this fine composition that make this one a real stunner and I love them all. I especially admire how you used the heavy cloud cover to your advantage with those distant mountains but yet there is that shaft of light reflecting on the surface of the water. I'm just sorry that I don't have a e2 membership because I can't give this my award.

Regards,
