p.1 #1 · Winter Surf at Point Reyes


Wild surf this afternoon at McClure's Beach, Point Reyes, CA. NEX-7 with ZM 50mm Planar at f/8. Shot directly into blinding mist and fog, so heavily worked over in LR3...

Spectacular shot, it doesn't get any better than this, you have stopped the motion of the waves, mist perfectly .
How do you like the lens ?

Thanks! I really like the ZM 50 Planar. It's very sharp and contrasty from f/2.8 across the frame on the NEX-7. I also have the g 35, which has a little softness in the corners up to f/5.6-8 (a NEX-7 issue, I believe), and the g 90, which is very sharp and contrasty.

I wish the NEX-7 got along with the wider ZMs, but it doesn't. The 5n does much better. Maybe there will be a NEX-7n down the road....

Really incredible shot! It is a very dramatic photo, and that is really what I look for in a good photo. Congrats.

Love it. This one would make an excellent large print.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! I may print this on the 3880, but I suspect it will be tricky to print well. High surf called for this weekend, so I may head back out there!

Outstanding image - the mistiness gives a great added dimension.

The frozen wave exploding on the rock centre frame is evocative of "The Great Wave", by Hokusai

Great image! I love those layers, the dramatic light and the huge water plash.
You even did catch a bird in the mountain mist.

Thanks again for the kind comments!

I printed this today at 8"x12" -- the tonality on exhibition fiber was really nice, but the print seems too small for the image. I think I'll try it at 16"x24" and see how that works. I have a place for it over my desk!
