John T. Peters 1/21/2006 9:25:53 AM

Steven,
You have captured a stunning image here. It is very moving emotionally for me. The colors and lighting and the action of the ocean shore waves on the rocks. I love the ocean and it is fun to photograph there. We have been taking a family trip to the Oregon coast each February. You have inspired me with your images. I was curious on how much photoediting of the color you did. I have been really exploring this as well with my photos. Lots to do in this area of post processing.
Thanks,
John #2316092

Nimisha Awasthy 1/21/2006 9:26:20 AM

beautiful........ #2316095

Steven Gunnerson 1/21/2006 12:01:59 PM

Thank you Stefan, John & Nimisha for your comments!

John, since I live close to the ocean, I have the opportunity to return to the same location over and over again waiting to find the perfect conditions. I watch the weather, tides, wind, etc. daily and when I think the conditions are going to be right, I go to the places I think have potential. The scene captured in this photograph was made at one of those places and on that particular day everything was just right.

I try to whatever is possible on camera, but all my photographs see the "digital darkroom" to one degree or another. Most have had a saturation enhancement applied for sure. I also use the unsharpen mask filter regularly. #2317101
