[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Well, this isn't the sea, but there's no listing for lake, or Bay or just "body of water".
We've had some interesting weather here in Barrie, Ontario lately. Yesterday we finally got a snow fall to make us believe Winter has arrived.
Just two days before that though, I took this photo. It was interesing to see that the water in thin amounts over the rock could create these interesting icycles.
In the distance you see the land that closes off lake simcoe and created the area the photo was taken in on Kempenfelt Bay.
Cold water, very cold. You wouldn't want to fall in.

Ah an E-330! I'd say you got some pretty good DOF here considering your F-stop. I would have been tempted to have more foreground in this shot and less sky, since the sky itself isn't all that interesting.
The overall blueish cast can be corrected in a photo editor.
BTW if you are shooting in RAW and using Olympus Master for your conversion software, consider downloading Pixmantec's Rawshooter Essentials (www.pixmantec.com).
It's free and produces much better results than Olympus Master.

Hi Kelley,
After reading Tim's critique and your reply I have to say that you did great. The details in the FG are perfect. The blue cast isn't that bad at all, I am more concerned about the OE sky. I am sure when you mask this part and make adjustments in curves, the colors will pop up.

P.S. did you find my information on the lenses usefull?

:) tomorrow

Kelley Not Telling,
Like the title for this register.
You have captured a "low" coming in; can see it in the far horizon.
The sky seems over exposed; wonder if I should W/S it for you?
Greetings from Calgary Alberta,

Hi kelley. Your pictures are interesting.
