    I like this exposure, light and contrasts are formidables! ;)….Colors are amazing and the angle very wide! I love when the pictures are not "flat", so for me , all is properly done, you work beautifuly on all your pictures……sincerely 😉

    And to be at the good moment and have interesting subject and vision is a big part of talent….

  3. hey +Chris Sutton , for this shot I kept the centre rock in all 3 frames and took them quite quickly so that the rock and the clouds could be used to stitch / control points. I waited for the typical large set of waves which come every 7 or so minutes and come in a set of 3 or so then just fired off the three shots moving the camera on the tripod after each wave rolled in (centre image first, then left and then right). I took quite some time in this position to get it right – i also dug the tripod legs into the sand about 10 or so inches , basically as the waves flows around the tripod legs they sink down, i just leave it there for a couple of waves and it gets pretty stable.
    The image is processed/stitched in +Adobe Photoshop using the photomerge option.
    Hope that helps and please don't hesitate to ask, always happy to explain – i don't write much in the posts about the tech side but am always happy to explain further

  4. +Gerard Blacklock Cool, this stuff is way beyond me at the moment so getting some insight is great. I've finally just ordered Lightroom (was going to do it ages ago but work happened) so going to embark on a processing adventure soon. With this one, even knowing how you created it doesn't help much spotting where you stitched them together 🙂 Oddly, in the small version of the image I can possibly see a straight line to the right of the rock, but viewing it large that disappears. Very cool stuff Gerard.
