Went to Chesterman's Beach for a day during the last long weekend here and I walked out to the islands that join where the beach curves out to sea. I'm sure many of you have been there.

I chose to focus on the "life" clinging to the rocks and how harsh the environment is there. Plus, I found these wicked super green pools of what looked like slim water or radiator coolant. I think it was just algae water, but either way, COOL COOL COOL! :D

EXIF intact, C&C welcome of course, and the full gallery can be seen here:

1) Green grass outlines a green pool of water.

2) Sparse bits of grass and life poke from the once active lava rock.

3) I loved the way this grass looked like it was in motion even when it was still.

4) Found these red flowers fairly quickly as they stood out brightly against the bland rocks and they're the only red flowers in the whole area too.

They are all nice but that #3 is outstanding. I love everything about it.

Thanks, that's nice of you to say. I could've spent all day on this little island, but alas I only had an hour! :D

Have to agree with CameraBuff......All great, but #3 stands out as the best for me as well. I think that it just has a nice transition from the foreground, to the middle, to the background.

I like #4 the best - I would probably like #2 much better if you had green pool also in focus - I realize would have taken small aperture, extreme DOF, but I think it would have greatly improved the image.

I took that shot with f/16 as well so I'll see about editing and posting it up for you. Thanks for the comment.

They just seem a bit too bright.. And #4 looks like you accidentally pressed the shutter button while walking. Just being honest.. I get my own criticism on here..

Edit: Well now I can't tell if I like the lighting or not. They're probably fine.. Don't listen to me.. HA

If you were to crop #3 to the rock just below the small pool, I think the photo would be outstanding. Maybe also lower the exposure 1/3 or1/2 as well.


just a few of my thoughts...
