Image taken at Yaquina Head, Oregon
Settings: F20, ISO 400, SS 1/500, 85mm using a 70-300mm f 4.5-5.6 lens on my D800
Edits: Unlike most of my images, which I perform minimal edits to, I went out on a limb and I edited this one in Photoshop using a color burn layer and texture.
I just wish that I had caught the light on the light house… 😦 When traveling with kids and a husband, however, patience is not in abundance.
I’d love to have your feedback. What do you think?
Excellent edit-well done Robyn
Thank you dearest Nora. I truly appreciate that! Blessings, Robyn
Your photos are absolutely fantastic and I love all the B&W (my favorite medium) but this is so gorgeous and moody!
Thank you Kasey! What a wonderful compliment to receive. So happy to know you like the “Stormy Seas”. Blessings, Robyn
I love it!, artistically done! It’s fun to try new things. And I so get the traveling with family part!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Susan! Have a wonderful evening! Blessings, Robyn
Great image. The silhouetting works really well! 🙂
Thanks CK! I appreciate that! Robyn
I like your image a unique and moody creation, well done. I like most photographers try to capture the image in the camera; but I am becoming less of a purist when I see so many great creations and tweak’s, to me it is just a artistic extension to photography and should be explored more. I am having fun experimenting with On Ones Photo Tune…its great fun a source of creative ideas.
Thank you David. You are so correct. Editing is fun and a artistic creative outlet. The darkroom was that outlet for film photographers so there is no reason to think creating art using digital photographs isn’t acceptable. Sometimes even the best image SOOC can be made better or more artistic if edited. Blessings, Robyn
I like it – very nice effect – you could turn the light on in Photoshop 🙂
Thanks Robin! I need to figure out how to turn the light on in PS….I have been going through my images to see if one similar has the light on but so far none of them match up to layer them or blend them..:-( I will keep researching how to accomplish this! Blessings, Robyn
I tried a bit of trickery with this once, too, Robyn… (with a lighthouse as well – the ‘Frankfort Light’ – in Michigan).
I printed and re-photographed an edited image through wet glass – I poked a pinhole through a part of the print where the lamp would appear and placed a flashlight (most of which I had masked off) behind the paper (so light would shine through the pinhole and reflect off water droplets on the glass. It was a bit of a hassle… but it kind of worked… in a way… maybe…
I’m sure your trickery was fabulous Robert! It seems to me that you’ve mastered it! Have a terrific weekend! Robyn
absolutely love this photo
Thank you ever so much Karmami! Blessings, Robyn
You are most welcome…thank you
This is a stunningly beautiful image, Robyn – and I very much like the way you’ve processed it – its absolutely good and well done. >>> and we’re using identical gear! – D800 with 70-300, the lens I’m wedded to; I also use a D700, and am getting back into very wide angles too. Adrian
Thanks so very much Adrian. Your compliment is a huge confidence boost for me! Funny that we are using some of the same gear…I also shoot with a D300s and love wide angles too! Best, Robyn
I think you have excellent taste, Robyn… the post-processing here only seems to enhance your subject matter…
(keep in mind the guy who is saying this is usually detracting from his, though 😉 ).
Very cool, Robyn!
Thank you Robert! That means a lot! Best, Robyn
Great PS work to create this moody blue scene. Love it.
Thank you Lee! Have a fabulous weekend! Robyn
It has a timeless quality to it. It’s lovely. Oh, and I can relate to patience being at a premium, when you’re shooting with family accompaniment. Wishing you a stellar weekend ahead! ~v
Thank you Victoria! Have a wonderful weekend!
Stunning work, Robyn! Love how you’ve processed it:)
Thanks ever so much Uday! I appreciate that! Robyn
This is very dark and dramatic. I’d say that processing can add a new dimension to a photograph, which is certainly true here.
Thanks so much Mike! Have a great day! Robyn
I like it Robyn! I don’t like to edit either but sometimes it works…:)
Thanks Meryl! Always appreciate your kind words and encouragement! Have a lovely weekend! Robyn
Wow, I love this image on many levels……..
Thanks so much Gregor! So very kind of you to let me know! Robyn
Great image Robyn! Love it!
Thanks so very much Craig! That means so much as I have the utmost respect for your work! Blessings, Robyn
Wow! What an awesome picture that looks just like a painting! I could imagine this picture hanging in a gallery 😉
Thanks so much Charlie! And guess what! “Stormy Seas” will be hanging in two exhibits this November! Wish me luck on selling it!!! Have a great weekend! Robyn
Congratulations! I will keep my fingers crossed for you 😉
May I ask how you were discovered?
Thanks Charlie. I don’t know that I can really say I’ve been discovered. I’m still dreaming of that! I submitted my portfolio for review for a couple of juried shows and was accepted. Both are local. I live in a community with many artists so there is a great appreciation for art – all forms. I’ve been throwing myself out there just hoping and praying that some day people – the right people – will see the beauty and value of my work so that I can begin to sell it and share it on a higher level. Have a great week! Blessings, Robyn
Robyn, love the STORMY SEAS. Very nice. I agree. Looks like a painting.
Thanks so much Terry! So nice to hear from you!!! Hope all is well your way!
