I feel like a standup comic, I got a million of them!

I think this is my favorite of the Pfeiffer Beach images, Composition? Light? Not sure. I just like it.

What a location.

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/200 second F/9.0 ISO 100 28 mm

I like the detail in the shadows and the motion in the water. Composition is good.

You bet, John... excellent composition, well-balanced, interesting elements that are nicely contrasting... a real beauty. Easy to see how Pfeiffer Beach could get under a photographer's skin. Hey, as far as we're concerned you can just keep 'em coming... we won't tire of your fine work. As always, thanks for sharing!

I feel like I can just walk right out onto those rocks.

Composition, light...yes, i'd say those are two of the reasons you like this shot!!! I'd add the state of the water, so real and alive, which adds to the shot....which by the way, is just awesome!!!

I agree. Keep 'em coming. These are all so lovely. Looking back through the series, though, I'd have to say my favorite was posted on the 23rd. Just love that gorgeous sunlight streaming through the clouds!

A beautiful image, John. I was writing to our fellow AM3'er - 'shroom' - this morning about our experience with Adobe Lightroom™ for doing pre-processing and what a fabulous difference it makes. This, especially true when going in with a raw file. Fantastic!
