SOME OF THE BEST IMAGES FROM OUR WEBSITE
Some of our favourite images from the DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHER website
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.
