Clearing Skies by DrewHopper Clearing Skies by DrewHopper
Super low tide this afternoon at Valla beach. The skies we're beginning to clear and some beautiful sunlight illuminated the foreground. I didn't use any filters here, just the 10mm :)

Dude, this is awesome. I love the rivulets in the foreground. Nice high contrast black and white, as well.

I agree that a bit more contrast would have been good here. With the CPL that may have been accomplished without any post work.

Great concept, and I am really diggin' your black and white stuff lately.

Haven't boosted contrast, I personally prefer it like this but that's just my style I guess. Some people love strong contrast mono shots, I don't really see much in them.

Great shot ... I would really like to see the colored version or a different B/W color filter here for the contrast ...

I have a portrait format one in colour I'll process tonight, and probably convert to monochrome with a cool blue tone :)
