tried this the other night. i don't know how i feel about it. that's why i brought it here.
Very cool colors
Is that the street light?
sort of interesting :thumbup:
I don't like it. The composition is alright, but the yellow-ish tint really doesn't work.
I'm so NOT sure about the colour the water took through that street light ... it looks so "wrong", and no longer like water, more like something ... slimey, and not friendly. I tried the same a couple of months ago, also on a beach with sodium lights lining the promenade, and I wasn't too fond of the effect I then got, either.
try to play with the WB and SAT..
im sure it will look much better with blue or purple color..
That colour looks really weird. I'm afraid that I'm not sure if I like it or not. The composition is fairly good, although I don't really get the impression of crashing waves, more of a fairly calm seaside. I'm also not a fan of the street lamp's flare in the upper right, although you may not have been able to do much about that.
Sorry if this seems a bit harsh, but for a first attempt, it's fairly good, I'll admit. Maybe the colour is making me think too little of it, I reckon a black & white conversion would be pretty good.
yeah the yellow color is from the street light. i didn't like the color from the start, and that's the reason i wasn't sure about it. i'll try to do something with it later...gooing to church now.
I hate those Orangish lights. Annoying and disgusting in pictures. I took a TON just like this shot here and out of 90 pics I kept 3. Everything else is good about it but the street light ruins the photo big time imo.
lookin forward to see the result
All I am really going to say (and this won't be helpful... there's your warning) was that when I opened this thread that said "Crashing waves long exposure" I expected to see a beach during the day with what looks like the arch of a small wave crashing on the shore WITH the spray, and everything...
well you couldn't "freeze" the water w/ a long exposure of about 10 seconds =/
