Until It Sleeps by Solkku Until It Sleeps by Solkku
Good evening all! Here's a shot I took in Porkala (a point outside Helsinki in Finland) at sunset. This is taken a bit before the Disappearing Act I uploaded yesterday. Processed RAW in PS, cropped and added the frame. I had a bit of a problem coming up with the title for this shot. I was listening to Metallica at the moment, and thought this title fitted the photo quite well. ;)

Print available.

Info: Canon EOS 20D | Sigma 12-24mm EX HSM | Cokin X120 + X121 Graduated Grey | ISO100 | f/22 | 1/4secs

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

What a beautifully sharp image. This gives me hope for getting such results out of my 20D as well. First I need to build up my lens collection though.

Yeah, I used the camera RAW sliders to get the basic photo I wanted for post processing, after that I highlighted a few of the rocks with the dodge tool in Photoshop. :)

If I were to name one person as my fav. photographer, it would definately be you. I mean the colors, details, scenes..It's all to my liking, and with a bit lighter price tag I would definately buy these for christmast presents for my family.

I just started photographing myself, but hopefully one day I too can take such beatiful photos. Great job, sinulla on selkeästi lahjoja :)
