WHAT CAM­ERA, LENS AND SET­TINGS DID YOU USE TO CAP­TURE THIS STUN­NING SHOT?

I used a Canon EOS 60D and 18-135mm lens. I used ex­po­sure blend­ing, so had dif­fer­ent set­tings for the sky and wa­ter (fore­ground). For the sky I used 1.6sec, f18, ISO 100 and for the fore­ground 25sec, f18, ISO 100.

HOW DID YOU DE­CIDE ON THE COM­PO­SI­TION?

When I first saw this place, I was over­whelmed be­cause there were so many beau­ti­ful sub­jects to cap­ture and beau­ti­ful com­po­si­tions to se­lect. ‘Less is more’ is a fair state­ment be­cause I spent hours think­ing about which com­po­si­tion would be per­fect. There was a high tide that day so I climbed onto this small rock and I was amazed by the view from there.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THE IM­AGE?

What I like most about this im­age is the colours in the sky and wa­ter. I think the pur­ple in the sky and bluish colour on the wa­ter is a beau­ti­ful com­bi­na­tion. Also the fore­ground rock and its tex­ture is a nice el­e­ment.

DID YOU DO MUCH POST-PRO­CESS­ING?

Dif­fer­ent ex­po­sures for the sky and fore­ground were com­bined. I like mix­ing dif­fer­ent ex­po­sures and dif­fer­ent times into a sin­gle im­age, be­cause the per­fect light in the sky and the fore­ground may not hap­pen in one par­tic­u­lar mo­ment.
