Cloudy afternoon over Valla Beach, Mid North Coast Australia NSW. The puzzle-like rocks in the foreground are due to rough seas and strong winds.

These weren't exactly fast moving, I was hand holding the GND filter and I tend to shake a lot so maybe that helped getting the effect ;)

Ha, shaking is a good thing...one day when i own filters i will know too. Also a matter of direction in relation to camera. Yay physics :-P

Try 60 sec mate with the ND400, as you can see it was overcast :)

I reckon its one of the best you have done. The textures and contrast make the image really atmospheric.. you can almost feel the cold drizzly wind off the ocean... not that it may have been like that.

Love it. :clap:

Awesome motion in the sky. The textures in the foreground are really striking. I'm not sure about the balance of water vs. rock, however. While the rock is undeniably badass, it might also be nice to have a more even balance.

DrewHopper Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2009  Professional Photographer
Thanks man. Do you suggest cropping some of the rock at the bottom?
Reply
:iconcoulombic:
coulombic Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009   Photographer
No, I don't think a crop would suit this. I tend do think a crop would just make it look more "squished" into the frame; a recompose would probably be the best bet, as to get a little more water in the scene. Those textures sure are awesome, though. Maybe a diagonal composition, with the rock filling half the frame, and water in the other portion?

DrewHopper Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009  Professional Photographer
I'm not real keen on diagonal framed shots to be honest. I do see what you mean about needing more water to balance the scene though, I can go back another afternoon and re-shoot this location now that I have a good composition to work with. It was also low tide so maybe if it had been high tide the water would be lapping the rocks, could possibly benefit the image :)

Great and dramatic sky, perfect lines. Well done!
But I keep asking myself how it would look like in colors. ;)
