    My wife and I decided to drive down Highway 1 after spending Saturday in San Francisco. My favorite part is the Big Sur area. Every time I'm driving through there I am in awe of the beautiful landscape.

    We pulled over for the sunset and I was able to take some long exposure pictures. Was lucky that the birds didn't move to much on the rock.

    That is an awesome picture. I love the foggy look of the water....and the colors...... so nice.

    I was kinda hoping for more comments...

    I am very interested to hear from people who don't like it on how to make it better...

    thanks for any advice or constructive criticism.

    Theres something about the sea I dont like, its a beautifull picture make no mistake.
    I cant tell if its the processing, or the shutter time.
    If its the shutter speed, it seems a bit halfway between, long enough to blurr the water a bit but not long enough to turn it to smooth smoke.
    Its a personal thing, but the water looks painted or drawn.
    The colours are a shade too artificial I think.
    Its a nice photo though, and a purely subjective opinion.

    Joxby: Thanks a lot for your comments. I think I see what you mean with the water. I have to admit I was hoping for a longer opening time myself. I will try that next time.

    thanks again.

    I agree...a LOVELY picture. And my only issue would be the same as joxby quoted above. The colors look just a tad "painted" and not natural. However, that may not be a negative thing as in the end it does add a bit of drama to the overall photo.

    Thanks a lot for all the feedback.

    Looking at it again. I also think I exaggerated to colors a tad. I'm gonna tweak them a bit to make it less cheesy... :)

    thanks again.
