[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot taken along the Big Sur coastline of California. Yes, the sun was again in front of me:( So, I decided to work around the brightness with a little pp work and now it looks more like moonlight:)

PP: standard RAW adjustments, adjusted colors in lab mode, adjusted brightness/contrast, added border, resized, sharpened, jpegged.

Hi Karen
I love the light and mood
Wonderful capture and perspective
Have a nice days

An incredibly moody shot Karen! I like the reflection on the water. And you are right, it looks like a full moon night. Good job on this one! I like the mist rising. Too pretty!!

Hello Karen, I have taken shots like this where the sun is in front of me;I know that the view is wonderful but how do you convey this to the viewers?
I think that you have probably found the answer!It does look like moonlight, but I do like the graded layers of the cliffs as they meet the sea.The majesty of the place comes across, well done.
Tfs, regards Jean.

hi Karen
ecellent shot of the big Sur reminds me when i was over there bout 4 years ago realy nice place and you have captured it well
regards bryan

I love theses contra jour shots. The light also highlights the headlands very nicely. The rocks in the water provide a nice contrast and sense of perspective. Nice work.
Warm regards

Hi Karen
Beautiful coastal landscape!
You managed so well this backlit, keeping the light mist on the sea! I like the cut of the coves clearly visible between the slopes of cliffs.
Beautiful work! Annie

nice reflection of the sunlight all along the littoral

hello Karen
An incredibly moody shot! Beautiful palace on the shore

Beautiful fogy shot. Nice tones and excellent depth.

Hi Karen, I love this very serene view of the sea. I've been longing to take this kind of picture. Good soft effect on the horizon and the light reflection on the water.

Well done!

TFS, donnie
