_____Random Info
   Within everyone lies an emptiness that has to be filled with a passion - landscape photography is my passion (alongside my band of course).

   This was shot on the 5th day of my recent Portugal Trip with SvenMueller after we had a very disappointing sunrise in the dunes eastward of these rock formations located near the town of Almograve on the Atlantic Coast. Luckily we actually waited for almost overcast weather conditions to shoot some of the very ominous looking forms and I am more than just content with the outcome. Also I guess I will add a vertical format of this motif in due time as well. SvenMueller has already uploaded his vertical format which you can take a look at here:….

   I used my trusty B+W to get the long exposure and actually switched the white balance to cold light which led to the slight purple touch but still an overall cold light blue toning so I didn't have to change much colorwise. And since I loved the colors so much I figured I might as well use it as a Wallpaper and subsequently ended up going the extra mile to set up a complete Wallpaper Pack for you guys. Hope you enjoy; also let me know what you think. ;)

this has a wonderful sense of emptiness which is enhanced by that strong detailed foreground....

Yep, Long time exposures always rule!

Did you used only the B+W NDx1000 (3.0) to create the long exposure effect? This is a great work! Nice lighting, composition and colors here :clap:
I assume I did, at least if I wrote so. Can't remember anymore since this was 2 years ago. But thanks for the praise. :)
