Storm over Playa Ballota, Asturias
« on: July 24, 2019, 03:21:22 am »

Stormy weather at Playa Ballota, in Asturias (Spain), one of my favourite locations along this incredible coast. An older image, 60 seconds of long exposure taken with Leica S (007), Leica Summarit-S 35mm f/2.5 and my Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters.



Thank you for viewing, best regards

Yes, I agree…

It's one of these "end of the world" sky that plays so well with the rock formations and the ocean.

Well done, Vieri!

Vieri, I've been slow to comment because I keep coming back to this image and looking at it again. I liked it very much, but something about it didn't look quite right. Then I remembered a critique of a photograph I'd posted here a couple of years ago, and it hit me. Just as was commented on my image, the foreground is sharp, the rocks are sharp, but the sky and, more importantly, the surf in the middle is motion-blurred. That's what is making me uncomfortable. For what it's worth.

Hello Jeremy,

thank you for your comment. Personally, luckily for me I have absolutely no problem with the issue you mention, of course, nor that makes me uncomfortable :) Best regards,
