Hey all, I am looking for some feedback on the following shot. Some background first perhaps, I have started specialising in taking mainly landscape shots with lots of bold colour as a theme as that is what tends to draw my eye, and can sometimes envoke a mood from the viewer, so basically I shoot change of light and try and combine that with local landmarks that would be easily recogniseable to a local or anyone who has visited the area. These shots are then printed to large format canvas for me to proof and then if good enough offered for sale online and in a few local galleries. This has just started moving for me now, 4 prints sold in 3 weeks, 1 gallery taking all 5 of what I have and the other gallery ordering 1 for the moment and after easter to have a wall with all featured. I took all canavses in so they could actually see for themselves how good they are for real. So holy crap, this is actually happenning now..wow, I think we all have a fear of failure so we dont live to our potential for fear of failing to the detriment of any chance of success. Better to have tried and failed than to never have tried at all. F%&K failure, just do it. This I need keep in mind. So now you may have better understanding of the style of shot I am after. And the shot (sorry for the ramble). I like this shot for a number of reasons, firstly the colour and how having that on large canvas in someones home could warm it perhaps? The raw energy that comes from the dirty surf, turbulent, angry. And in contrast, the calm peaceful golden skies at sunset. with the reflection in the sand adding to more are of colour saturation. The small hill you can see is a local landmark and one of the most popular holiday destinations in New Zealand, easily recogniseable to a local or previous visitor. What I am not sure that matters is the fact that the foreground wash is in fairly sharp focus, leaving everything beyond not so sharp?
