The Bluewater by DrewHopper The Bluewater by DrewHopper
I know this shot is very similar in composition to one of my other recent uploads, however slightly different processing on this one. I decided to upload both to get your opinions, to find out which would be most popular among the public.

I also forgot to mention the story behind this photo. I was shooting long exposures obviously when I felt this sudden burning feeling around my leg, I looked down and to my surprise were 7 bluebottle jellyfish stinging the hell out of my leg. I basically had two choices, either keep shooting and deal with the pain, or call it quits and miss the photos I have been wanting to get for a long time. I chose option A, and I'm very glad I stuck this one out. Anyway, that explains the title of this image. Hope you enjoy it, as much as I didn't enjoy taking it :giggle:

Serenity - Emerald Beach - Mid North Coast - NSW, Australia.

Haha Despite your pain the picture came out fantastic; so surreal, like another world in a faraway novel. I hope you think it was as worth it as we do! haha

Thanks mate! I read on your profile you won the 550D in the photo chain. I won that years ago, except my prize was the 500D before the 550D was released. Congrats!

Nevermind, I found it, it was the "Swimming Pool" one, I figured out your name on Photochains (wasn't hard) and the cross-referenced it with your image in the gallery, nice work man, when I originally saw it on the Eos site I looked at it for ages, it was captivating, but not as captivating as some of your other images in your gallery.

I hope one day to get as good as you at photography
