Crimson Winds by pestilence Crimson Winds by pestilence
Palaio Faliro / Greece
Hard time, I had to run after each wave crashing on the rocks, and additionally I had to hold a filter cleaner on my hand since the filter would suffer from the water being splashed all over. I was a bit disappointed by the sky since it was mostly overcast. Another thing I regret on this one, is not having a wide angle! (but this is all history now...)

This is a good shot, the scene works well with a nice contrast of warm foreground colours coming foreward and cooler colous receeding into the distance. The processing is generally well done, although perhaps a little oversharpened. The shutter speed you have shosen works well altough I would try to acheive a more even tone in the spray. Compostionally its fine, but could be improver. In particularly I think the rock on the right dominates the scene a little and because it has a flat side facing the camera it feels a bit static. I would try to simplify the foreground if at all possible.

Thanks Alex, I tried to find a way to frame this, space was kind limited and I couldn't move much forward due to the waves crashing. I had a wide angle framing in my mind, but I was limited on my 18-55mm I don't know how different this one would look from a 10-20!
Indeed I think there is a bit of oversharpening here, Kirlian also noted this, and I will try a slightly less sharpened version to see how it feels! :)
About the rock, I feel the same, I might crop it as well and see how it comes out! :)

Thanks mate :)
Nothing much, good exposure, a bit of saturation boosting (dunno I like the Velvia effects :D ) and some good sharpening to bring the crispness of the picture :)

Okay well nothing that magical then :nod: Well like many have said it, you just can't beat a perfect lighting ;) (And if the lighting sucks use filters to balance that or post process it like hell :D)

If the lighting sucks...spot the place and visit it again another time :) that's my learning up to this time :)
I used to shoot even if I didn't like the final result, nowdays I tend to hold myself...I know I will get my opportunity some time later :) If the place is far away...well sometime in the future :)

Patience is a virtue! I agree on that ;) I'm slowly learning that too, but I'm still too eager when it comes to photographing :D I just hope that in a future I can have more patience

amazing texture to the sea, great detail in the rocks!
If this is your D50's swan song, it's a very beautiful one :nod:

Well it all depends on the lens :D :D If I am able to acquire the lens in the following weeks, it probably will be one of the lasts shots of my D50 (although I am to sentinel to sell her...)

I believe this would be from my last pictures with the D50 :) The 5D just arrived yesterday...I was shocked how well her condition was! Even the flash mount was in really good condition! :) :D
Now I am checking for the 17-40L I believe next month I will be getting one :) (darn...not new filters again...darn and again darn...)
