Illuminated Emotions by Solkku Illuminated Emotions by Solkku
Hello everyone! Here's a shot I took last Friday in Porkala (a cape outside Helsinki in Finland) at sunset when *Bavenmark, *bliz and I were out there photographing some waterscapes. I processed the RAW with the new Photoshop CS3 beta and added soft vignetting and the frame.

Print available.

Info: Canon EOS 20D | Sigma 12-24mm EX HSM | Cokin X120 + X121 Graduated Grey filters | ISO100 | f/22 | 2 secs

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

Wow....is basically all I can say.

The colour, the capture, the feeling overall is just so...breathtaking. Like a lot of other peices I'm seeing in your gallery.

Very beautiful :)

Awesome colours, I love it. I have a question for you, how do you get the 2 sec exposer without parts being over exposed?

Geez I must be hyper: I forgot to compliment you on this great photo!

I love the water. Is it because you took the photo on a slow shutter speed? Oh DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGH! Silly me didn't take note of the stats for the photo... *slap*

And the contrails. Is this the subject (read: Please forgive my ignorance. I've been, well... I have no excuse... er.... Moving on! ---> )?

Very beautiful shot, as always!

Can you tell I'm going crazy in my little bubble, orange cucumber?:bonk: :XD:

Damn, and here I was being a great big aero-dork going to post a comment professing my genius at recognising such a thing and someone beats me to it...
Well... It's not that unusual to 'lay'-people (Not in the industry), is it!?

Wow, Solkku, you're one of the few people who have enough talent to bring me out of my hermit house and comment! I command thee to feel proud! :blush:

I feel hyper...
WAAAAOOOOUUUWWWWWWEEEEEEOOOOOWWWWW!!!

These are the photos I love to capture, as my nature around me is restrictive (nothing much more than water, rocks, landscapes and a horizon). In the beginning of February I will go to the northern part of Finland though, and hope to ge tomse nice and different photos from there. ;)

You know, despite my bewilderment at all of your work, I find that a lot of it looks really similar. You have really taken that red orange horizon with the rocks going out to sea, and ran with it. I think as I watch more and more of your stuff emerge, the pictures that I truly enjoy, are the ones that seem new for you. It's funny, I could say these were all beautiful, which they are, but then, you've heard that a million times, myself included. But quite honestly, I'm beginning to develop a mindset that says, "you've seen one, you've seen 'em all." Or maybe I've just seen too much American Idol and I'm turning into a Simon or something. I don't quite know. :paranoid:
