I try to look for relationships between the waves and aim to have at least a ‘stack’ of foreground or central wave and I really love a crest at the back of an image. I like a fair amount of blur due to the slow shutter speed and rear sharpness is of no concern. In this image, I’ve focussed on the right hand crest of the immediate wave stack and consequently everything beyond that decreases in sharpness.
This one is part of the Sea Fever series and a potential for the book which is to be published by Triplekite Publishing: seafeverbook.co.uk.
A wonderful image and thank you so much for sharing the ins and outs of how you took it. It helps us hobbiests to learn the technical side of things 🙂
Absolutely beautiful ! And just out of curiosity: Where (that is, what beach, what sea ?) was it taken ?
Your Sea Fever series are wonderful! I just ordered your book after reading your interview in OnLandscape. Thanks for your inspiration and for sharing!
Many thanks for the book order – much appreciated.
Beautiful. Love the mood.
this is insane! the movement and color throughout the image is well and truly gripping. There is something about this image that is intensely emotional to me. Beautiful work!
I have had image this bookmarked for ages, and I have come back to it several times, both for inspiration and plain viewing pleasure. Nothing short of sensational!
Much appreciated – very kind!
