    Default Jonathan Livingston...

    Was he here?



    Only one photo this time, it will have to do

    E-5 + 35-100mm getting soaked by the waves and me getting bitten to death by mosquitoes.
    Cheers,

    Love it - almost a surreal quality with that DOF.

    I like the blue tone, and the dof and the feather. However, I would try to crop the top part of the picture. I know it's somewhat spoils the ratio, making the image too wide, But I feel that the upper part somewhat, do not add to the picture.
    just my 2c.

    Excellent shot, worth the mosquitoes Beautiful DoF, and lovely soft water texture. Agree with caurt about loosing the top third or so, and perhaps the right <third if you want to retain the image ratio.

    Hm, I like the top part since I believe it adds to the atmosphere, so it's not just a sea shot, but puts it into perspective and gives it some location definition.

    In any case, here's a wide shot cropped, so maybe you'll like this more

    I didn't want to go overboard with PP. This is actually very close to original, too much red/warm would divert the attention IMO.

    I prefer the crop. More drama, and more focus on the feather and excellent misty rock. Either way, excellent work.

    I do like the first one, the crop has me bouncing between the feather and the rocks. Very nice shot, great idea worth looking at more than once.
