Awesome composition here, Julianne. I feel like I'm drawn into the surf. Great detail and color in the texture of the rocks! #8404350

Val Feldman level-classic 2/21/2010 1:31:23 PM

Crisp with fantastic clarity, Julianne. This is just beautifully composed - the rocks framing the wave coming in, the peek of sky and clouds - it all comes together with a sense of drama and beauty...excellent pp, fantastic image! You go, girl! #8404637

Julianne Bradford level-classic 2/21/2010 2:22:26 PM

Thanks so much! This is a magnificent location. I'm just so pleased to be able to do it justice with a photograph. Learning processing techniques is so rewarding. Watching the colors come out and the definition was thrilling! #8404760

Marty Straub level-classic 2/22/2010 11:34:04 AM

What a great job processing this, Julianne. Sure it's great when the scene is conducive for getting it right in camera, but this scene could not be captured with such detail in the shadows AND highlights without your expertise in post processing. Beautiful work! #8407463

Julianne Bradford level-classic 2/22/2010 5:49:37 PM

Thanks Marty. I have Mark Dodge to thank for helping me with processing skills in Photoshop and Lightroom. This was a difficult shot to correct and process, but with the techniques Mark taught me, I was able to bring out the best in this image. Thanks again Mark :-) #8408239

Where have I been? I have missed so much in your gallery, Julianne! We have had two sets of company and all the prep work! I am trying to catch up at a slow pace! BUT I WILL!

This is -SO- beautiful. I see many more wonderful things to visit soon!

Amanda Haddox level-classic 3/2/2010 5:49:48 PM

What refreshingly beautiful scene, Julianne! The boulders of the shoreline and the warmly lit walls of the cove intimately framing the in-coming wave between them, the break of soft blue sky providing the perfect side lighting to illuminate the rising swell and accentuate the eye-catching aquamarine color of the under current . Incredible detail in the rocks along the beach and the jagged cliffsides, you can almost feel the coarseness of their texture! Excellent work, Julianne! PS…Mark, you must share your secrets with the rest of us! :) #8428043

Mark Dodge 3/26/2010 1:26:52 PM
