    Holla! Sorry for not logging in enough in the past few weeks, had some internet access issues.

    I spent the last month living and travelling around Cambodia, had some great adventures, met some incredible people and captured some pretty memorable moments in my camera, but this one was by far the best from the tour.

    For those who don't know, the islands of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samleom in Cambodia have fluorescent plankton in the ocean which light up when the water is disturbed. I took this shot in a moonless night, a composite, the ocean with an 8 minute exposure to get the fluorescent plankton properly. The blue patches on the ocean are the plankton lighting up due to the big waves disturbing the water.

    I was very satisfied with the results, but as this was my first serious composite I'd really appreciate some feedback.
