    It's been a while since I last posted a proper landscape... but here I am, back with a vengeance.

    This is the Oregon coast as seen from Ecola State Park, one of the most beautiful places I've visited in a looong time.

    Nikon D70s with 18-200VR
    f/5 @ 18 mm
    1/400s
    ISO 200

    Colour and B&W for your viewing pleasure :)





    Thanks for looking.

    The B+W needs more contrast.

    Love the b+w, as above may need more contrast. Great shot though.

    Fantastic background...

    You guys are right. I tried improving the contrast but ended up losing detail in some of the rocks (especially the ones in the foreground). So, although I agree with you, I just can't make it happen :)

    This image drove me nuts in post-processing. At some point I decided that the slight crookedness was actually an optical effect produced by the bays and the wide angle. I might have been wrong, though. I based my decision on the fact that at the top right corner, where you can see the ocean with no background, the horizon is level.

    Thanks everybody for your kind comments. Looks like colour is the way to go (especially with my inability to make the B&W version look decent).
