Slow Motion II

Pinnacle Rock, Phillip Island, Victoria

The last light of the sun pushes through a break in the clouds on the horizon whilst tumultuous waves are dissolved into a fine mist.

A revisit to the same place I shot 'Slow Motion'
[link]

I really wasn't happy with that first shot - there were next to no clouds, and the perspective was too flat because the water was far too choppy for me to go down, so I decided to revisit Pinnacle Rock.

This time, the results were much better - the water was very calm, enough for me to get down close to the water. Not having to worry about spray and wiping the lens was a bonus too.

This is a blend of exposures. The 30s exposure on the water overexposed the sky pretty badly even with the stacked Grad NDs so I took a seperate, shorter exposure and blended it in to bring back detail in the sky.

Grad ND + Polariser stacked

Beautifully atmospheric, and the lighting makes it look almost like a fantasy painting. Great work! :)

That is just.. just... just... NO WORDS can describe this one... "awesome" is not a word worthy this picture! "Beautiful" is also a word too small...:S

Much better sky and you have composed it to have the light running right thru from back to foreground lifting the whole shot.

The mist is so awesome!
I love how all those rocks are so neat and clean and I wonder how did you get such a wonderful and clean focus on every detail in the picture?!

Thank you! I was very happy and surprised at the way the water came out too :) The back rocks are actually a little out of focus coz of sea spray on the lens but lucky its not too bad

Lovely scene. It's really beautiful.

I would just try to brighten a bit the top of some rock to minimize the Grad ND transition... :)
