Togs vs Clouds II, Frantic on Crosby beach. Explore

Another one from the muddy boot session, as I said it was hard to move for photographers and tripods that evening here were a few that were local to me, not that I stuck around for long, this guy may look like he’s moving quickly, but to be fair I’m guessing I might have been moving even more quickly.


I was keeping this as a second choice to the first shot, and I do need to reprocess this at some point to improve the colour resolution, I prefer the light and colour balance here and it serves as another example of the wide angle polarised light fall off that we were all wondering about from the ‘Stones’ shot I recently uploaded, I really like the effect of the mid dip, this is from the camera, not processed.. although vertical gradients, curves, and saturation, the image has also been sharpened.


I notice the EXIF data shows 10mm and f3.5, most of the shots are much higher f stop, I think I may have been trying to get figures reasonably solid, the first tog image I achieved that with three figures in shot, so maybe that is correct, but I also notice the exposure mode as auto... which certainly could not have been the case, go figure?


In view are just a couple of togs for this one, don’t the third probably has called it a day by this point, maybe he was due back with a loaf of bread (sorry in joke but if you have been following you will know what I mean), some nice reflective wet sand (again this is real not PS!).. and you can see Seaforth in the background with some of the first on shore windturbines, along with newer larger scale ones that have recently been installed, the radar tower at Waterloo, and all the pretty lights that have been switched on for us to capture on the cranes and buildings... you might also just pick out details from Liverpool beyond.
