The eternal silence of the Sea infinite motion fills me with peace, beauty and wonder.

For this shot, i wanted more of a relaxed scene which contradicted the violent high tides that day. I used B+W 10 stops ND filter for the dreamy misty atmosphere then tweaked my vision in Photoshop along with maximizing the contrast and deepening the tones of the ledge through luminosity, curves and levels control.

Useful tips :
When wanting to capture :
1-The texture of the moving tides/water : 1-2 sec. shutter speed
2-The moving direction of the water : 1/4 to 1/8 sec.
3- Anything at 1/250 or above freezes the sea water.

View on black for a better visual experience.

Finally, like everyone else in this crowded nature photography scene, I lead workshops, I teach processing instruction in person or worldwide via Skype. Website coming soon with images, workshops and prints. till then follow me at my Facebook page to see the most amazing photos from my adventures.
