Some heavy digital pushing of today’s image ‘Dark by the Sea’. Mucking around in Gimp, I was pushing the sky to get some dynamics, and then the foreground to get the cliff sides. I think the result, although requiring more editing effort on my part where the foreground and background collide, gives quite a dynamic surreal feeling to it.
With the weekend here (at last!) I am hoping I will get some time to develop my film – and start a new one. I also took delivery of a budget 2.2x telephoto lens to try on the Nex. I wanted to see how acceptable a result it would give me on my 210mm leans, as well as the possibilities it may offer when I am travelling light with the standard kit lens.
Beautiful shot! It reminds me of Takapuna beach.
Thanks! – you are close enough to on the money – shot between Takapuna and Narrow Neck.
Haha NICE 🙂
It reminds me of those overblown HDR shots but in B+W I actually like the effect, very dramatic! That’s my old hood, grew-up in Hauraki Cnr.
Thanks. In colour it looked like a very overblown HDR – was quite ugly. Quite different in B&W.
Wow so moody and pensive. Doesn’t look at all like summer.
The real trick will be making a cold winter shot look like summer!
I always favor B&W photos this one is interesting and beautiful!
