Fader

Another shot from the Palaio Faliro area of Greater Athens.
It was a nice evening, clouds and light games on the sky a lovely combination for a photographer!
I used a Whibal card to adjust the WB and transfer the light conditions of the specific moment. Saturation, contrast and leveling was performed inside C1 Pro and sharpening both for web and printing inside Photoshop.

Matthias :P the main subject is the sea and the sky, nothing else :P that sky that day thrilled me :D :)
So nothing more from this, sea, sky, beach, I know its usual subject and often repeated, but it felt special that day :)

if the subject is sky and sea, i find the rocks are not placed very well, they are too near to the edge. like you didn't want them in your photo. i hopy you know what i mean :)

I can understand what you mean, but then again I was very limited to my available space for the frame.
My main problem in most of my shots is that usually I shoot in places close to "civilization" meaning that if I turn a bit to the right or the left I will be introducing something unwanted in my frame.
In this specific example I was framing for the sea and the sky (including the distant fading sun in the clouds) if I turned more to the left I would lose it, if I turned more to the right I would have buildings in my frame...

I just changed the signature (I am not adding a title anymore) plus I lowered just a tad the saturation, although its nearly as it came from the camera, the reds where very strong that day, the 5D also has the tendency to boost them a bit more, so I decided to lower them just a little bit :)
Thanks again mate! :)

Why was I always under the impression that Athens is not the place to offer impressive waterscapes? Guess I know which area I should visit next time I'm there and I definitely know who to bug to take me there :evillaugh: I have a feeling he knows those places quite well!
Lovely shot Kostas!

Well I guess it's time for Kostas to mount the equipment and take you for a walk at the southern parts of Athens :D
I am really sure he knows the places :D

the clouds make this shot amazing. The shutter speed you used is perfect for the water, and gives the perfect sense of movement.
