Coastal Serenade by DrewHopper Coastal Serenade by DrewHopper
Final kiss of light illuminates the ocean as the sunset colours explode throughout the sky. The waves were quite fierce, allowing me to get creative with the water.
I would have loved to expose this for longer to get the clouds streaking through the sky, however my cable release is broken and 30secs was the longest exposure I could use. Enjoy!

wow, marvelous mate!!!

for 30 seconds exposue this is really an amazing result, if you had your cable release working, I'm sure you could have achieved even more :) heh, hope you-re going to get a new one soon :)

How do you keep spray off of you filters?

Never had a real problem with spray, I just wipe it whenever I need to... sometimes a little sea spray can make a photo, rather than break it ;)

I see. I guess my problem was the rain rather than the spray. Every time I've been to the coast it has rained.

Personally would have tried to capture more of the fierce waves than use such a long exposure. Nice cloud cover, and colours though!

I wanted to simplify this scene by breaking it down into 3 parts (sky, water and land) without including any distracting objects. I did manage to take some quicker shutters though, see what I can find :)

Yeah the compo is fine, I'd like to the faster shutterspeed shots.. just not enough definition, and detail in the foreground waves for me.
