Coastal Curves by DrewHopper Coastal Curves by DrewHopper
I really like how this draws you into the shoreline and leads you on a journey down the coast. I was standing in the water to get this composition, my tripod sunk a good foot or so in the sand which was a good anchor to keep the camera steady for the exposure. Where you see the tide in the foreground was where I was laying each time the waves went back out to capture this shot

Thanks mate, I wish there was some more focal point in the foreground though.. maybe some rocks or something would improve this one :)

Nothing done to the sky what so ever, except a slight boost in contrast to the whole scene and convert to b&w. Glad you like it :)
