Redemption by aFeinPhoto-com Redemption by aFeinPhoto-com
(sister image to The Rapture)

From back in May '11 during a great sunset session at Secrets Beach. The late season swell combined with the sand that had been returning to the beach made for plenty of interesting effects. I loved the way the water was peeling around the corner and wanted to bring out the streaking effect. Subtle but good sunset :)

Techy stuff: 1 exposure with 3stop RGND + 1 for sky (darker w/ rgnd)...this helps me control the range of light. Fg was shot at around 1/2s (sweet spot for water usually).

Composition wise I generally tend to not leave so much open space in photographs, however here I feel that the moving water acts as enough interest to balance out the rocks on the right side and the curving lines of the water bring the eye through the image toward the sunset.

Much thanks for the thoughts all!

A beautifully taken photo. love the effects of the shot. Any sunset photo is good, but the motion you brought with your exposure effects really brings this piece to life. The whole photo seems to be flowing. Very well done.

Great stuff. Particularly like detail on the rocks - the half second exposure's really done them justice. :)

One of only a few water long exposures I've seen that bring out the dynamics of the water instead of reducing it to some boring stillness. Very nice. Love the color tonalities too.
