very cool, almost surreal. in the seventies here in australia, this is the sort of thing you'd see air-brushed on the side of panel-wagons. great shot!

Yonatan from Bronx, United States

Wonderful exposure. Did you use a neutral density filter for this shot or was the light dim enough for a longer shutter speed?

9 Oct 2009 12:04pm

@Yonatan: The light was dim enough to use a longer shutter speed especially with a lower iso and aperture closed down a bit

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

A very dreamy shot. The lighting and wave effect give it a surreal quality! Nicely done Scott! ;-)

Marvelous pano. Wonderful blend of sky and sea. Love the cooler tones (quite different from most of your Central California and Southwest shots).

The tonal range is captured beautifully. I love the waves breaking and the lines and patterns in the sky. Choice of shutter speed perfect!

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

Very tranquil and beautiful! I love the way the water line starts in the LR corner and leads me right around to the wave in the middle- then I finally go to your excellently focused far-away shoreline in the background! I love the soft tones and the way the colors of the sky are really subtle, too.

wonderfully dreamy and mysterious mood thanks to the long exposure effect - especially on the waves... beautiful early morning light and colours too!

This is breathtaking Scott! Well worth the early hours to get this shot. The colors are lovely and the water is soft and has a faint glow to it.
