Visual Contrasts by Inebriantia Visual Contrasts by Inebriantia
The Visual Contrasts


The harsh rock and the soft green moss, the frozen ice sea and the stagnant warm water, the blurred skies and the sharpened memory of having been there, in a totally desert place. So many visual contrasts creating such a poignant emotional richness inside me, making me want to search further and further for places like this.

Praia da Cordoama


One of my favorite beaches, located in the the south western coast of Portugal. The sea was very agitated that day, and there was sea water spray everywhere, causing that blurred horizon line. Always keep your lens cleaning tissues close on this kind of water, as you will have to usem them every 5-10 minutes!

Aperture: f/9.5
Tripod
3 stop soft ND Grad
10 stop ND filter

Raw conversion with Adobe Camera Raw with fill light, blacks, exposure, white balance, vibrance, highlights, sharpness and noise reduction adjustments.

fun composition of textures...the roughness of the rocks contrasts nicely with the flowing seaweed and the mist-like waves...

The sky or say "background" is disturbing but the foreground is just delicious. Re-corp it for yourself and I think you see what I mean :p however, it's a great shot :clap:

Why do you think it's disturbing, and why would I crop the sky of a landscape photo?

I'm a fan of this, fantastic capture! I'm also in love with the how the water spray has created that soft misty diffusion on the horizon, so dreamy..
Do you apply sharpening in your RAW conversion, or in Photoshop? Curios, since I really dig your post-processing in that regard.

I only apply slight sharpening in the raw conversion, to bring out the detail. The "real" sharpening is done in photoshop after editing.
