Bandon Beach Sunset  by Stan Bormann, FPSA, MPSA

July 2024 - Bandon Beach Sunset

About the Image(s)

In my opinion Bandon Beach and Canon Beach are the two best places to spend a few nights on the Oregon Coast and you should try to get a room right at the top of the hill down to the beach. This shot is from down on the beach apparently at near high tide. Shot at ISO 640, 21mm, f/8, 1/1000 sec at EV -1.7 with a Canon 7D and Canon 15-85 lens. The fast shutter stopped the wave action, a slow shutter could have smoothed the water.

I think you have a really good image and a way to remember your trip. Is it possible to get a little more detail in the water and reflections of the rocks? Just a thought.   Posted: 07/07/2024 10:18:58

Hi Stan,
I think this is a wonderful night seascape. You've captured the sunset just at the right time. I also like your using a fast shutter to stop the wave action--to me at least it gives a `you are there' feeling. My only suggestion would be to see how the image looks if you lighten the shadows a bit...especially at the base of both rocks.
