Reynisdrangar, Iceland, in B&W
« on: June 27, 2019, 02:04:27 pm »

The amazing sea stacks of Reynisdrangar, in Iceland :) A 203 second long exposure created with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 90mm and my trusty Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters.



Thank you for viewing, best regards

Perfect treatment/framing and exposure for this spectacular landscape. I could spend days there!

Somehow, your approach of leaving one side of the frame (apparently) empty and unbalanced, so to speak, works wonders. I hope I expressed myself in the right way.

The left hand side occupies half of the frame, and includes only sea and sky; most people would swing the camera to the right to get a more balanced composition, with more cliffs.

Thing is, the sea and sky on the left holds on its own; the sky even looks like an Aurora Borealis in B&W.

Thank you very much Francois, glad you liked it! :)

Thank you very much for your comment, Paulo, I am glad you enjoyed the framing here :) To me, the leading lines in the empty space (both in the sky and sea) are actually what makes the image, giving breathing room to the rocks on the right but making it "active" at the same time.
