Greetings Monika,
I like the result of your 1 second exposure,I thought it was longer than that,so I learned something.I like the milky look it gives to the sea & I like how sharp those stones look,very moody shot, well thought out.

Hello Monika,
very interesting shot, very well composed. Great effect. In my opinion, a small part from below could be cropped out. I love this presentation, anyway.

Have a nice day.
TFS, abhijit.

F/29.0... I can only dream of such apertures, Monika ;o).
The long exposure time creates a serene and meditative mood. Your symmetric and very pure composition still enhances that atmosphere. Very good use of the square photo format.
I always wonder how to avoid over-exposure with longer exposure times, especially in the sky. Did you take this in poor light conditions (hence avoiding a too bright sky) or was there some post-processing needed to correct overexposure?
Anyway, a beautiful picture.
TFS & kind regards,

Bonjour monika

J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance de cette photo et le point de vue le tout forme un T, original
