Oceangrave by Solkku Oceangrave by Solkku
Hey all! Here is a photo I took in Porkala (a cape outside Helsinki in Finland) when ~bliz, *Bavenmark and I were out there shooting seascapes. This one is taken just as the sun was about set. I processed the RAW with the new Photoshop CS3 beta and added soft vignetting and the frame.

Print available.

Info: Canon EOS 20D | Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM | f/32 | 1 sec

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

Hello again solkku. :)

Always if I have a look at your gallery, there is a new 'must be :+fav:'... ;)

Is it frozen? It looks that way... Actually I love frozen water pictures, because here at the southern Baltic Sea it's a rare event. Within my recollection it happens once in a decade.

I remember one time, when I was a kid, there were sculptures of waves like instantly frozen, the picture is just very alive in my mind this moment, thank you for this too!

And even if it's not frozen, I love it anyway... ;)

Brilliant color play with the long exposure!
Are the black relections real, or some sort of artifact? (I know it happens with grossly overexposed film...)

=O The watery sheen on the rocks caught my attention first. ^_^ How did the water get there?

Solkku Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2007
Thanks. :) It's the water on the rock itself (waves) and the movement of the water that made the effect.
