Dynamic image, Jim. I like the way all lines converge on the center and the strong sense of foreboding, as if something might rise from the deep, if we just wait a little while.

Another winner Jim... the leading lines, the 1/3rd rule of horizon placement, great exposure, nice foreground, not overcooked colors... perhaps this should be a learning example for all the aspiring landscape photographers like myself.

This spot is South Garbage Beach.
The image was taken at the Blow Hole (now collapsed).
My hood.
I'm surprised Henry made it up the rope
Last time I was down there with him it was sketchy
Great capture!

Nicely captured, Jim.
What kind of HDR processing did you do on this?

Hey Maji,

Thanks so much for the kind words. I am glad you enjoyed the shot, and that you can learn from some of my photos is just an added blessing.

Thanks so much Patrice! You have quite the imagination. And the last time a sea monster rose from the deep my D700 drowned, so fortuntely no sea monsters were rising that night...

Yikes, South Garbage Beach? I am thinking I like the more general name for the area then... This is my 3rd time down there to shoot, so I had no idea to any historty of it, it's too bad I wasn't able to shoot it while there was still a blow hole there.

As for Henry, no, he didn't lose his mind and climb down or up the rope. He met me up on top in the parking lot. We walked just to the edge of the cliffs to enjoy the view, before he went back home and I climbed down.

Thanks so much,

Jim

Thanks! I appreciate that.

As to the shot, no HDR was harmed or employed in the making of this shot.

I was using an ND grad while the sun was still shining on my earlier shots. For this one, it's a simple double processing of a raw shot, making sure that the highlights aren't blown and then a simple layer blend to balance out the exposure of the sky and ground. With the large Dynamic Range of the D800, that blending was very simple. So I just adjusted the contrast for the sky, and then adjusted it for the ground layer, and that was about it.

the clouds seem as if they are in motion even in the still picture, I think you took a great picture and the timing was perfect

Wonderful, Jim. I love a sunset with orange and purple hues. Lovely area down there. Had a chance to visit there the weekend after meeting up with you in September. Would love to get back.

Cheers,
Ed
