Seal Rocks Wash by CainPascoe Seal Rocks Wash by CainPascoe
Amazing bit of coastline located on the Mid North Coast, NSW Australia.

Testing out a newly acquired 6-stop ND filter, this was taken in the middle of the day!

Upon seeing this in my messages, I had to see it in full view. What caught my eye is how smooth the camera caught the waves and water. I have always wanted a camera that could do this. This picture is now, one of my favorites on dA.

What I love about it is, again, how smooth everything looks. The color is perfect and the effects the camera had on this photo are amazing. I love the redish color in the rocks, it has a sort of dark look to a very bright photo. This photo has a lovely composition and the blend work is also as lovely. The processing on this photo is, in my opinion, perfect. The details this photo shows makes the scene a dream like look to it, and this photo makes me want to visit this place.

There is nothing, that I can tell from my experience, that I think could be fixed. I would like to see how this would of turned out if there were no clouds in the sky, but this still is an amazing shot.

Great job on this photo!

This photo really benefits from the ND filter. First, the clouds in the sky become more defined. Second, the time-exposure allows the movement of the water to turn from choppy to silky, an effect worth aiming for, if only because it is seldom seen. Third, none of the objects in the picture are washed-out. All have that pop color that delights the viewer's eye.
The horizon is not a straight line, which keeps it from becoming trite, and which guides the viewer's eye around the picture, from left to right. The composition, framing of the subject, and technique are excellent.
What do you think?

Incredible... what lens were you using with this? I just bought the original 5D, looking for a lens which is beautifully sharp :)
Great work...

:iconcainpascoe:
CainPascoe Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2010  Professional Photographer
wise choice:) i'm using the 17-40mm and i use it ~80% of the time, it rocks for what i do(wide scenes) and resolves excellent for a wide angle... if you want sharpness though look at some prime lenses, maybe even start with the 50mm 1.8?

absolutely stunning shot!!!

my only comment would be the top left corner came out a touch on the dark side in relation to the whole composition. (just 2.2 cents worth).

Was up there the other day... incredible place. Love the look of the water man!

Also love the crispness and the sharpness of the entire shot, what is your sharpening workflow if you don't mind me asking.
