Tidepool Under Fog by Enkased Tidepool Under Fog by Enkased
This is a combination of HDR and long exposure, which is in my experience, the toughest one to pull off because of the noise which results from the combination of the two. This was shot just as thick, wet fog rolled in. It is a 3 shot blend with the aperture closed down all the way to capture the waters movement. This was a very strange scene, and a rather tough one to photograph, so as a photographer it was challenging, but as an artist it was exactly what I look for... one of those wierd scenes that rarely play out. I was just lucky enough to be there when it did. I took a series of shots with 2 different lenses because I knew there were factors which would come into play that would take away from the shot. I ended up liking the results from my ultrawide, I also had a WA prime that just couldn't stay sharp in the conditions. By the end of this session my gear was dripping wet and needed to dry out a bit when returning home.

Works very well at different levels. Technically, there must have been challenges to keep control with long exposures, but artistically this is really neat in my opinion. The subject is slightly odd in that the viewer is not quite sure what that large central portion is. The composition works with its "third" division and its recession via the apartments on the LHS. The palette is also spot on with consistency across the pale blues and sandy ochres. And finally, the textures of varying smoothness add calm and tranquillity to an excellent work.

You might add a note to look at the image in full view - even better.

Cheers

Yeah, it was a hell of a situation to shoot, I took many different exposures to come to this end. This is actually the point of an exposed sandbar, I followed the tidepool back to the mouth, but by the time I got there this heavy fog had dropped. Thanks alot for the thoughts on this David.

Cheers.
