Thanks so much for your kind comment.
I’ve been trying for that effect for a while. Thanks, Sandra!
That is so sweet of you to say, Dotti. I’m thinking of putting it on canvas…Think it would look nice in the dining room…
I was pleased with the light too. Thanks, Becs.
This is beautiful!
What a beautiful shot of the sea, Sherry. That longer exposure has really given the water a dreamy look. I love the colour of the rocks and the green of the sea and how the sand glistens!
Thank you for your friendly visit to my place!
Beautiful photo, Sherry! Love the smooth movement of the waves and the brilliant details of the rocks.
This is fantastic, Sherry! It should be a canvas wrap. I’d buy it in a heartbeat.
Love the effect you’ve achieved here and the light is gorgeous.
Yes, it feels meditative to me too. Thanks so much, Sheryl-Elaine. Glad you enjoy it.
Thanks so much, Indigo. That coral is really rough! And the longer exposure smooth out the water. Shooting just after sunset helped with the light.
Long exposures are one of my favorite things to play with these days. Thanks for your kind words.
I’m happy if this inspires you to try it too. I can only imagine the incredible result! Go for it.
Thanks Jane! Appreciate your visit.
Thank YOU! It’s a pretty stunning place; I’m just glad I could capture a iota of its beauty.
Stunning — the light, the swooping strands of water, the colour of the sand and rock. Thanks, Sherry.
beautiful – inspiring ……. meditative ….thank you
So beautiful, it looks painted! Lovely composition too, with the pairing of rough and smooth textures.
outstanding result! I have to admit it’s likely been close to 2 years since I’ve done any real long exposures. I did a couple to catch some moon and clouds images but they don’t count really. You’ve inspired me to get out — reach a bit — and do more long exposures. This turned out beautifully!
Truly gorgeous! The long exposure is stunning.
Gorgeous, Sherry. Nice effect.
