The details in the rock are exquisite and the composition makes the shot mesmerizing, Scott.
I'd be curious as to the ratio of color to B'nW at this weekend's show. Enjoy!

8 May 2009 12:26pm

@Judy: Judy thanks for the comments. This weekend I probably have 70% in color and 30% in b&w. Have a wonderful weekend!

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

This is absolutely wonderful, Scott. I love the perspective- it is something a bit different, with the emphasis on so much of the rock in the foreground. The detail of the lichens & succulents is amazing. I also love the way the sea just fades away into the fog....Beautiful!

I think you have learned to fly because it does not look like an easy to reach location. Fantastic shot!

Ilan from Israel

Unreal!! This is totally amazing!
For the past five minutes I'm trying to understand are you very high and the blue bellow are clouds, or you are not TOO high and the blue is water :)
Amazing, colors, scenery... everything!

I don't think such sight is so easy to find. The beauty of nature and the tough side of the nature are both combine one single frame. An amazingly done shot and presented every more beautifully.

Your pictures are fabulous. The detail and rendition (and the vision) blow me away. Can you share whatever your processing is for a photograph like this??? Thanks......

8 May 2009 5:43pm

@joemulligan: Thanks for the comment! I used a circular 8-stopND filter plus a circular polarizer and this was a 20 second exposure shot in RAW. I used photoshop cs4 raw editor for some modifications and then NIK software pro color for foliage to make it pop a bit more and then NIK pro sharpener for final sharpening and CS4 for some saturation touches

Very stunning image! Dreamlike. I feel as though I could take a magic carpet and set sail.
