[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've been meaning to get to some seascapes while in Oz. Mostly all I've seen in beautiful beaches. But I've been keeping my eye on this stretch between Wollongong North Beach and South Beach. Today we had a low spring tide and I noticed the nice color of the seaweed on my walk home from school. So I fetched my camera and tried to record it. The hard part was with the low light behind me with my 10mm, I had trouble getting my shadow out of the shot. Here's one of the few without. ND to knock down the sky, and an eletronic one in PP.

Hello Mike! Wonderful seascape. Amazing rocks and stones. Nice light and colours. Original shot. Good luck!

I like the colours and light in the shot, the low light angle tends to show the rocks texture off better. Thanks for Sharing regards Bill.

Hi Mike,
crystal clear sea, fresh air, saturated colours, nice composition and wonderfull place. Really nice and "energetic" shot.


Hi Mike,
Beautiful seascape. Rocks looks good. Nice colors. Well done. Regards - Adil.

Such a fine wide-angle shot in great depth to capture the exaggerated perspective of the rocks laid bare by the low tide Mike, good balance between the silent, static rock formation and the on-rushing sea. TFS this beautiful naturescape my friend.

Well you have done it here in getting what you intended...a super shot and very well saturated mosses really make it a fine image for a day such as this so close to St Patty's Day! Congrats on this...

Hi Mike,

The capture of the wave coming onto the rocks is an asset to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the rocks. It is also taking our eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the photo. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
