[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The last few days i have been trying to capture a photo like this of the Thrift at Freshwater Bay, but each time something went wrong!
Either i got stuck behind someone in my car who was driving at walking pace, and then ended up arriving too late for the sunset, or the sunset was just plain and simply rubbish with either a clear sky that looked quite bland or an overcast sky that also looked bland!
This evening however, the sky was slightly better, and this allowed me to capture the Pink Thrift in the warm evening light.

I used a polarizer and an ND4 Graduated filter.

I love the contrast of the water with the flowers and the sky. Nice POV.



Hi Jamie..I like the super saturation ..nice tones and colors...


HI,wonderful seascape Jamie, nice composition , the pink flowers makes a perfect, interest foreground leading your eye to the beauty of the sea up to the natural vivid colors of the sunset.A perfect way to utilize your polarizer and ND grad. I am a landscape and seascape lover and i know you have the eye on this kind of photography, expect me to visit your gallery always, like this one,Hats off for you my friend, a very fine posting here.

excellent capture jamie!

i think it's worth the extra effort. nice POV and I can feel the beauty of the sea and the sky.. very calming shot.



Hello Jamie,

The evening mood of quiet and calm just oozes from your shot.
I love the pov, capturing the secure triangle of thrift, before the thrilling move, over the edge, to appreciate and absorb the details of the sea, the rocks and ultimately the warm light of the setting sun.
You have great depth to the shot and a fine composition.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Excelente disparo, el contraste de colores, DOF muy bueno. Un buen trabajo

You do take your time and only take the shot when conditions and light are spot on Jamie .. a lesson a lot of posters here need to learn.Another wonderful shot that is so well composed and exposed.My only nit with your shots Jamie is the large black frames that can detract from your most beautiful pictures .. all a matter of taste I suppose .. :)

Hi Jamie,

Lovely shot of a lovely area,the sky the sea and the thrift are all beautifully coloured,I was out doing the same last night till it was dark.
