North Narrabeen Rock Pool Before Dawn

    Newer Older

    Best viewed Large On Black

    Went out to Nth Narrabeen for the first time this morning. The challenge with shooting this pool is that so many others have done a great job of shooting it before, it's hard to get something unique.... Thought I'd feature the sky with a super long exposure (about 3 min I think). The colours are pretty intense on this image... I haven't saturated them at all, not sure whether I should be toning them down.... kind of seems like a shame though to desaturate a RAW capture... usually I'm adding some saturation.

    What do others think.... to intense colour or OK?

    If anybody is interested in how I processed this image, I described it in My Blog entry today

      sensational image. best quote I've heard recently quotes Ansel. "You don't tale a picture .. you make it." or ... it's not what you see but rather what you want others to see ... well done ...

      Awesome -- I don't think the colors are too saturated, but maybe I'm just a color junkie ;) that movement in the clouds is killer, as is the comp. The foreground is quite bright, but I don't think it's overdone. Great work!

      Fantastic Photo!
