Rock pools and eroded rocks at Cotton Tree Beach, Maroochydore, an hour's drive from Brisbane. The erosion here is so bad, this probably doesn't exist anymore.

It's not often I get up before dawn to take pics Sleepy

No manips apart from a gentle burn on the surf and a crop to where grit scarred the neg.

I wouldn't have used a red filter as the dark areas would have gotten darker, and they are pretty dark already, maybe a soft yellow would have brought out a little detail in the dark regions. The composition is nice as is the contrast.

I could well have used a red filter ... it's a while ago, and alas, I don't keep notes ... I did own a deep red filter back then (and now want one again so I can experiment with infrared). However, the ripples in the pond indicate a fast-ish shutter speed, which red filters rarely allow.

This is most beautiful!. I love the title/autograph thing you have going. I also love the wonderful tonal range you have here. (was this shot with a #2 red filter by any chance? the tones/contrast make me think it might have)

lovely! I love high contrast - really dark - nature type photography. it highlights the natural tetxures and shapes of the landscape.

I'm headed to Big Sur this weekend and plan to take lots of photos - this is inspiring. :) (Smile)

Beautiful. Quite sad that it possibly no longer exists.
