_____Random Info
   This is the first shot from my tour through Wales last week. The picture shows Marloes Beach at dawn my camera facing south. I've actually planned to shoot the beach for a sunset but the sun actually set so far to the north that it wasn't possible also the tide had swallowed almost all of the beach so I walked south on the ridge of the cliffs to catch the sun set but sadly it was blocked by clouds once I reached the tip you can see in the background.

   After a very rainy night I decided to try shooting the sunrise instead and hoped for some colorful clouds (which I got in the evening but not for long). What I got was a lack of color and lots of rain - after I did about 3 compositions it started raining after I had been walking the trail down to the beach in the rain already, fortunately I had the time to get the compositions I wanted most before it actually started. Still I resided an additional hour in the rain to see if it may stop after a while so I could get some more shots to see if I get even more spectacular clouds, sadly it didn't so I spent about 3 1/2 hours in the rain for this shot.

   Note: I edited this on a regular Acer Laptop so I'm not quite sure about the tonalities of the image since Acer monitors aren't the best for editing. So I'd appreciate people to tell me if I got things right just by judging the histogram. :D

That's really a beautiful image. Love the contrast betwixt the sharp detail in the rocks and the moving softness of the clouds.

Sehr schön :)

Unten vielleicht nen Tacken zu scharf, aber die Kontraste sind soweit gut, denke ich :)
Und bei SW hast du ja nicht soviel risiko (abweichungen) als bei einem Bild in Farbe.

:iconnicolasalexanderotto:
Hm, Jan meinte auch schon das sei einen Tacken zu scharf. Ich muss mir das echt mal auf nem anderen Bildschirm angucken. :D

Aperture: f/9, ISO-Value: 80, Shutter Speed: 115s und nur den Hoya Pro1 ND8 genuzt..?. Muss ja echt ziemlich düster gewesen sein. So spät war es ja laut Angabe nicht. Von daher passt der Titel schonmal echt gut!
Zur Bearbeitung: Es würde mich interessieren ob auf dem vorderen Stein viele Algenkleben... Wirkt sehr unruhig. Vielleicht einfach nur überschärft?

Ansonsten schöne gleichmäßige Belichtung!

Nya, das war technisch gesehen ja noch vor Sonnenaufgang. Also am nicht pm, daher demnach wirklich noch recht dunkel, die Wolken haben ihr übriges dazu beigetragen. ;)

Der Vordergrud ist in der Tat etwas unruhig, allerdings ist da alles voll mit Algen zumindest zum fuße der Felsen hin. Die hatten schon eine Menge Textur. Ich denke nicht, dass das überschärft ist, zumindest auf dem Lappy Bildschirm siehts ok aus.

AM und PM ich achte nie drauf.^^

Dann wirds wohl überschärft sein, ich finde die Textur schon sehr "krisselig".

Hm, muss ich mir im Zweifelsfall mal auf nem anderen Bildschirm ansehen. :D
