Welcome back, Roger! You've given us some treats worth waiting for. I love the moodiness of this one. Is the softening of the water through HDR? (I like collections that use an HDR tag, because that lets me see what has and what hasn't been processed that way.) Cheers, Marilyn

Thank you Marilyn! Good to be back. Well, I haven't been away really, just been busy. I'm touched by your comments! This picture however has not been optimized by HDR technique but I used a long exposure and multiple exposures at the same time. Some like these kind of pictures, some don't. I'm a bit ambigious:) That is, I try to be careful and only use it when necessary due to low light or when I want to play with Photo Graphy ;-)

I'm a bit ambiguous about this technique, too, but I think it works very well in this shot. It emphasizes the parallel or almost parallel lines in the water where it reaches the shoreline, and for me that's what makes the photo special.

Of course I considered the possibility of a long exposure time. I only asked about HDR because I'm interested in learning what it does and doesn't do. I still haven't tried it, though I have some software.

Hi Marilyn. Well, I'm not too confident on how to use it either, so I'm not sure I'm doing it correctly or know how to make the most of it. I usually take a few pictures having my camera sitting at the exact same spot or on a tripod and then take a few pictures which are under-, normal, and over exposured. Then when using my software there is a HDR button I discovered just a few months ago that merge the whole thing, supressing the highlights and emphasizing the light in the dark areas it seems. It gives acceptable resaults now and then, and at other times it looks weired.

Beautiful work Roger, the photographic techniques you have used turns this beach scene into pure magic. I wish you would map it :)

Greetings, Amelia
