Restless ocean! by Dhananjay Rao

May 2022 - Restless ocean!

About the Image(s)

Fresh from my visit last week to the 17-mile drive near Monterey, California. This point at the beach is simply stunning, with extremely busy and restless waves but the birds are calmly fishing in those busy waters. Wind provides resistance.

Shot using 18-135 lens - f/11 shutter at 1/1600. Edited using affinity (Dehaze, brightness, contrast) and denoise AI filter tool.

Both of us chose a bird this month! :)
I like the composition, and the contrast of the blue and brown.   Posted: 05/10/2022 08:41:30

Great landscape. I really like color pallet - shades of blue and gold, cold and warm. As for the bird - I would try to clone it out. It's small and in my view does not add to the image, but distracts. Of course is a personal choice.   Posted: 05/12/2022 18:02:54

Thanks Marina.

I do have a couple of shots without the bird, but I personally felt, the bird was a part of the natural landscape.

I however did feel the cars are not a part of this... I have not used the cloning technique, will look it up and try.   Posted: 05/14/2022 20:08:59

It's a nice landscape image. I feel the bird is too small to be a subject and distracts from the main focus of the shot. It draws your eye away from the intesting rock formation. I would clone out or use content aware to eliminate the cars.
This is a nice example of subject layers in a landscape   Posted: 05/15/2022 06:57:42

Thanks, Bob. You are right, for me, it is the landscape I want to show here... rough waves and the rocks. Birds were the bonus in the air and in the foreground whereas the cars in the background were not.   Posted: 05/15/2022 19:44:03
