After hours of driving on the road, this was the first random location we had stopped by. There's Mc Donalds just next to the beach side. It is quite rare to see fast food restaurants located at such places.

The beach itself wasn't as good as I had expected. It was filled with tourist, and the sand was quite filthy. We rested for a moment, until some of my friends went up to get a couple of ice cream.

I saw some rocky areas around the very end of the beach. It was quite isolated, and there were only a few people there. A friend and I went to check it out, it was quite a distance to walk. But he assisted me, by carrying my burden tripod.

When I had reached there, it was impossible for me to walk on to the edge. There were too many huge rocks and the water level was pretty high, without counting the incoming waves. I tried to climb up the rocks, but it was out of my reach. After a while, I had discovered a spot where I could set up the tripod, but it wasn't easy to get to. The pathway was quite steep and there was sea water gushing in.

But I manage to climb up onto one of many random huge gigantic rocks. When I got up there, it was very slippery and I nearly tripped my whole camera and tripod into the sea. It took me a while to get everything started.

Post processing to make it extra juicy. :) You can't rely to its original, if it isn't process means it isn't ready to eat. :D

You used a 10-22? I have one too... Now if only if I could get to such scenic locations...

No, it belongs to my friend. I use a 12-24mm which suck. I am getting a 10-22mm by next month.

Great! 10-22 is great, distortion is very minimum, the sharpness is superb, build quality is great, just no weather sealing, but that's not needed because it's an EF-S. From my photos, I actually think it's better with a 400D than a 17-40mm with a 5D, overall. With your 40D, it'll be just great.

Another thing, sorry: How did you manage to use 3 Cokin filters on it? I can't even use the standard holder without getting vignetting.

Been a while since I've seen you submit something ;p this one has great otherworldly colours, being so saturated and varied. Well framed too. Only detractor would be the burnt/flat looking clouds, otherwise grand.

Ah yes, can't help that because in reality, the are far and the contrast has gone.

:iconcosmicbound:
cosmicbound Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2008
Ah perhaps so, they may however look less burnt if you desaturated them a bit however, perhaps a gradient could do this effectively.
Reply
:iconcouleur:
couleur Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2008
I wouldn't touch it, because there are signs of stacking (layering of the gradient). In this case, only the noise can reduce the stacking. If I pull a white gradient on, all the "true colours" would be revealed. Plus I think with the new frame-less has put into some effect, it looks quite nice and pleasing then the old big and bulky.

:iconcosmicbound:
cosmicbound Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2008
Ah, the bordering does look fine. However, by the gradient, you did realise that I meant a saturation layer though, right? A gradient could be used to define the level of saturation, from the bottom being the most saturated to the top being the least, to whatever degree you define.
