With these water action shots, you kind of know, the second you click the shutter, that you've caught a good one. From 70-odd shots taken yesterday all around the place, not just coastal scenes, this is the one I was looking forward to putting up on the screen.
Sporadically appearing from behind the moving clouds, the sun was in near perfect position, about 8 o'clock on my azimuth, and maybe 45 degrees above the horizon. Catching the sun and water at the same time were long odds.
Only one adjustment done. A small amount of global denoising. Otherwise untouched.
I can see why you were anticipating this shot, this is an excellent capture. not only is the tonality great, the texture of the sand and in the explosion of water on the rocks. all-in all a great moment capture Cameron.
and you have good cause to look forward to it, the way you have framed the water spray with the rocks is very good. the exposure is perfect and it is such a dramatic shot. you should be very proud of this one !!!! congrats added to favorites
