Fluid in Motion

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Fluid in Motion
Fluid in Motion
f/32 1/2 second at 600 mm

Taken early in the morning at the Santa Barbara Breakwater. Small waves would roll in towards the breakwater and I would pan due to the slow shutter speed required for the exposure. The water reflects the early morning light in the sky that was unique due to smoke from a local fire.

Processed in Aperture with color temperature, contrast and exposure adjustment. Final preparation is in Photoshop CS2 with a velvia film emulator plug in.
