Little Austinmer's Rinse Cycle
Nearly a month ago, I experienced a great dawn seascape shoot at Little Austinmer, where there is an abundance of interesting water and rock features on the rock shelf.
During the earlier part of the shoot, I shot some long exposures in and around the main gorge.
Here is one of them:
Here, I opted for a different style of processing, going for a more muted appearance, as for this image, tonality was more important than colour.
Landscape photographers usually try to emphasise the rich colours revealed by low, soft light; but sometimes playing down the colours produces a more interesting result. Admittedly, this particular morning was quite moody, but there was some colour in the sky.
I have processed a few images in this style, and for the conditions I experienced on that morning, it works well.
