Willunga Blues by Ruth Benson, QPSA

February 2021 - Willunga Blues

About the Image(s)

The image of the remains of the Port Willunga jetty south east of Adelaide was taken on 18th January 2021.
It was a cool, mainly overcast summer’s day and not ideal for photography, but luckily the sun broke through the clouds for about 10 minutes, just after I had found the area from where I wanted to take some shots of the jetty remains. The glittering rocks, the moving clouds and the crashing waves made the scenery look rather busy and I preferred the much “calmer” images I had taken using long exposure.

Here is the Metadata of the submitted image:
Exposure 61 sec at f/11
ISO 100
ND filters: 10 stop + 3 stop
Nikon Z7
Nikkor Z 24mm-200mm

This is so beautifully peaceful. The reflection on the water leads you right in to the jetty and the lovely sunburst, with the rocks and hills on the left framing it nicely. I am wondering if it might be a good idea to crop a little from the right side? Either way, it's an awesome image.   Posted: 02/04/2021 11:41:27

Ruth, this is an absolutely awesome photo. I love how the sunlight is reflected off the water. The overall composition is "spot on", and the color, contrast, and exposure are perfect.

Well done!   Posted: 02/19/2021 11:17:03

Ruth - The layers give this wonderful depth and pull your eye from front to horizon and beyond. The light is perfect. The lighthouse on the bluff adds a real dynamic to the photo as well. Bravo
