Awesome! And I love La Jolla Cove! Makes me wish I were home again...as San Diego!.. anyhow, besides my own personal feelings, the BW works great. I love what it does to bring out the texture of everything.

Je trouve que ça rend super bien. Le seul truc qui me gène un peu c'est l'utilisation d'un format portrait pour un landscape. Avec un rendu pareil j'essayerai de faire péter le grand angle et j'utiliserai un format paysage pour bien faire passer la sensation de grand espace.

:icongoranda:
GoranDA Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2007
je vois bien ton point de vue...
j'ai souvent tendance a faire les paysages en portrait, je ne sais pas trop pourquoi ;)
ici, c'est un peu la faille qui a dirige mon choix. j'etais deja en grand angle, les exifs (qui indiquent 38 mm) sont fausses, il faut que les vire (j'ai empile 4 versions du shot ds un .psd pour choisir la meilleur, je fais souvent ca au lieu d'avoir plusieurs fenetres ;), et du coup les exifs ne correspondent pas a ce shot.)
en format paysage, pas moyen de cadrer la faille et le ciel a cette distance, et en reculant la faille semblait un peu perdu ds l'horizontal.

merci de ton passage, A+ :)

Ah oui effectivement j'avais pas trop refléchi à la faille. J'avais plus noté la texture de la roche ;)

Which aperture you have used? >F10.0 right?

Depth of field is really nice.

Beautiful result! What does the ND filter do? Is is acting like glasses in this matter? I really like the lighting! I never seen la jolla like this, great!
Reply
:icongoranda:
GoranDA Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2007
thank you :)
the ND allowed me to do a long exposure and have the motion blur on the water ;)

btw, did you seen the sunset at SD today ? I saw it from a not very good location but it was "The Sunset of the year", there was 5min of magic with the sky going on fire and dramatic clouds, the best sunset that I saw in one and a half year !!! I'm really pissed off to not have been in a good place for that, there was some fantastic shot to do... too bad :(

I also had a setting issue when I took a "snapshot" of this sunset : i forgot that my camera was set on 800 iso, so mine is not blurry but noisy ;)
