Are you tired of these beach shots? It’s a goal of mine to work on improving my landscape photography, and the beach is a hop, skip and a jump away from my wee rental cottage. Easy-to-get-to subject. And I haven’t taken new self-portraits in awhile.
This was taken in between rounds of storms. Even during this lull, the wind was crazy strong; little pieces of foam was being flung about along with sand.
What do you think? Too much negative space, or is it balanced? Horizon is nearly smack in middle, which is generally a no-no, but I thought between the “mountain” and the interesting clouds, the faux pas could be forgiven. I couldn’t figure out a good place to crop without hurting the scenery.
Postprocess was fairly minimal, with slight tweaks to correct color balance (it was hard – light was weird at that moment, ended up using the foam in LR area to help) and minor curve adjustment for a little contrast.
