Natural Bridges Beach #1 [Santa Cruz]

View On Black

 

Explored!! Dec 21, 2008 :: #207 -- Thanks everybody!! :)

 

I finally managed to drive out to Santa Cruz's Natural Bridges Beach to catch the sunset. Landscape photography has never been my strength and this is my first attempt at using graduated ND filters, so it was quite the experiment.

 

This was taken with a GND8 for the sky and a GND2 for the lower part.

 

I'd love to hear any critique you guys may have!

 

UPDATE

I've been really busy lately but I'm going to try to go back to try this picture again. I should have paid more to the reflection - I'm not happy that I cut off part of it. I'll wait for another cloudy day and drive down to the beach again for another try.
