Looking across the Gulf of Mexico during the Everglades Challenge 2013.
This is perfect! Did you up the shadow and contrast to give it the depth? It is lovely.
Thank you for your compliment. Yes, exactly; shadow and contrast. I pushed the darks slightly darker and the lights slightly lighter. This photo is part of a story. It was taken on day two of four days of racing. Here's another photo taken a few seconds later, [link] and here's my write up of the event, [link].
Nice shot. Unfortunately, that would intimidate the hell out of me.
What I like about being on the ocean is the alternating hills and valleys. Here, my camera is even with my eyes, which is what?, about 30 inches off the water and the immediate horizon, which is not that far away, is uphill from me.
