In Tears Bereaved by pestilence In Tears Bereaved by pestilence
It's been cloudy lately but usually overcasted, I got a small chance of shooting a few days ago, searched for some places and decided to head north of Athens.
This was taken in P. Faliro of Athens.
I waited a bit for the sky to open, the conditions where not good, the waves would splash on the rocks spreading water and salt all over, I had my Nikon on the tripod trying to find the best way to frame while also trying to keep the equipment safe since from time to time a big one would hit which would spread a generous amount of water everywhere. I was afraid the pictures would not look very good since even if I did clean my GND filter it would maintain haze due to the salt left over.
I spot metered on the dark rocks in front of me and then on the sky, 2 stops (and something) was the difference so I used a 0.6 hard edged Hitech here.
I waited for a nice formation of waves to appear and the time where I could have the rocks that are inside the sea a bit revealed.

Nikon D50 | Nikkor 18-55mm | Hitech 0.6 GND | Apperture: f/8 | Shutter speed: 1/6sec | Focal Length: 18mm | Manfrotto 055X ProB - Manfrotto 804RC2

although this is a well taken shot it is not really offering anything new. It really is just a straight image of the view and you arent really giving me an interpretation of the scene in anyway. By interpretation I dont necessarily mean "this is how I see the scene upside down" or anything like that, but rather that there doesnt seem to be an active thought process in the shot, at least outwardly. I find the rock on the left edge to eb a distraction.Again I like the shutter speed you have shosen, its refeshing not to see a long exposure which in my opinion is way overdone as a cheap trick to try to create some interest.

Hahah :)
Well my original intention was that, but then the sky came overcast and I missed the chance of that picture, nevertheless I was pleased by the outcome.
Wish I had a more wide lens, it would surely boost the picture! :)

Trust me this one looks insanely good already :) Wide lens is awesome most of the time but I think that this photo looks pretty good without any wider view.
