Winner PhotoMalaysia Aug 2008 Wacom Photo Competition: Sunrise/Sunset
Re: Winner PhotoMalaysia Aug 2008 Wacom Photo Competition: Sunrise/Sunset
Thanks so much to everyone who voted for this shot! It was an especially difficult subject to shoot as there was such a huge contrast range between the sky and foreground. I used a graduated neutral density filter to retain detail in the sky and kept firing when I saw a wave breaking on the rocks. I also varied the shutter speed to find one that sufficiently freezed the waves, yet not too much in order to give a sense of motion in the water. Only very few worked out as getting the timing right was extremely difficult. I'm so glad that many of you loved this photo! Appreciate your support fellow PMers.
