[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This one was taken the same day as yesterdays posting, but a bit further on a rocky natural platform in the sea, linked to the coast by a half meter large "path". It was getting darker so I could use longer exposure time toguether with the flash to have enough details on the foreground. First time I've tried this with flash.

I'm not yet really happy with the sharpness but I guess it is difficult as I do not have remote control, and press the button on the camera itself.

The coastal line of gran canaria is, exept for the beaches in the south and the beach of Las Canteras in the capital , formed by lava stones and rocks and looks very wild and inhospital. The cliffs have a dark brown or black color wich can be a bit depressive.
In this case you can see various layers of hard lava and ashes with big round rocks.

the fishermen can't go on sea and it's getting on ones nerves and head...

Hi Karin,

Sharpness looks good enough, better are a remote control with long exposure times and a tripod.
Colors are also beautiful.
I'm looking on my laptop!

Good pov.

regards gert

love the use of the long shutter speed to create the nice effects in the water

Hi Karin,
sorry for delay in critiquing, having to use my p.c at work!
Although i prefer the natural colours more here, i think the POV on the other one is better. This one feels a little 'closed in' to me.
However, the exposure itself is very good. I might have used a smaller aperture to create a sharper image all the way from front to back perhaps. Do you have a timer on your camera? This could help with the camera shake. Looking forward to seeing what else you post, really enjoying your shots from here, it's a very similar looking location to my stretch of coastline!
tfs and have a great weekend,

Hi Karin, there is a nice mood and tone to this seascape. I would have moved closer to the sea and I noticethe cascading water on those rocks to the right which I would have used to best effect. As it stands its a well executed shot. Well done.

Hallo Karin,
Lijkt een beetje op een schilderij. Ik hou van die donkere kleuren.
Een bepaalde sfeer...
