First of December by DrewHopper First of December by DrewHopper
Seeing though I'm a Sagittarius and today was the first of December, I thought I'd ride my bike to my favourite spot. There's just something about this beach that makes me feel wonderful, rain hail or shine.

It's a fine shot. There's nothing wrong with it, but somehow it's just not that fantastic. I think that the white blurred water doesn't really fit the amazing sky. It feels like an exposure this long didn't really match the scene.

Read some of the comments and agree with some of the sentiments on the comp. At first glance it seems strong but the issues brought up above do have some merit. Maybe stepping left and panning back to the right to keep that rock/line in the bottom right. Very cool place though

Not feeling the composition much on this one, left side is a little empty, and just doesn't compare to your last dreamscape. Well exposed shot though, great looking clouds in the sky.

stunning, did you do manipulation with ps or something or is this just more created with your cam

It's all achieved behind the camera. The use of a longer exposure creates that silky smooth effect on the water. Glad you like it :hug:

If you're refering to the mist like effect on the water, it's using a long exposure.
