Beautiful color, light and detail, Dale! #10975203

Thanks, Robert. The next morning, during a slight rain, you would have enjoyed the surfing near Morro Rock. A bit different than what you normally film, but very picturesque. #10975457

Gorgeous Dale! I love the slight mist in the distance and the beautiful blues, but most of all the serenity of this one! #10977574

Elaine Hessler 2/18/2014 11:53:36 AM

Beautiful! A quick technical question-I know you would never have a horizon sloping to one side, but it looks like it is going down to the right. What optical illusion am I seeing?

Love everything about this-how did you get it so blue? Was it like that when you took the picture? #10979037

Dale Hardin 2/18/2014 1:13:17 PM

Thank you,Elaine,and good questions. The reflections will show you it is straight but there is a sand bar behind it and to the right that runs at an angle from upper left to lower right, giving an illusion of a horizon.

As far as the deep blue, that was artistic license created by multiply blend and a warming filter applied to the boat.

Here is a the original straight out of camera. I think its a good shot in it's own right, but wanted something more dramatic. #10979095

Sherran Andersen level-deluxe 2/19/2014 5:42:03 PM

Love the blues. #10980289
