Surf at dusk

This is an image I shot on Sable Island. It was taken at dusk, I had the camera on a tripod with my 100-300mm zoom lens and the camera set at: 10 seconds at f4.0, 250mm, ISO100, RAW.

In CameraRAW I optimised the image by adjusting the levels and curves and so on. This is a technique that I haven't used much before.

Not sure about the quality of the JPEG however.

I am Dr. Sam. I would like for you to come to my blog. I have been a Carneologist for the last 18+ years. In my time, in the feild of Carneology, I have discovered an emotional dilema effecting at least 25 million americans, according to my personal research. I have just began a blog to possibly and effectively help people cure this emotional dissorder while remaining anonymous. I have founded the name for this disorder and named it. Do not be mad at me for leaving this in your comments because in no way am i diagnosing you with this dissorder. I am only attempting to shed light to many people in an effort to help womankind. Please feel free to come to my blog at and read about this newly discovered problem afflicting millions nation-wide and who knows how many world wide.
Thankyou very much, Dr. Sam

Damien, I think this is possibly my favourite of all of the images I've seen from you. Very creative and effective.

I love this too. Very much reminds me of the abstract colour paintings of Mark Rothko of whom I am a HUGE fan, so I really really like this image. The colour bands are superb. Excellent stuff.
PS Who the f**k is "Dr Sam" above?

Thanks for the comments chaps. I don't know who Dr Sam is and I looked to see if we can delete comments but I guess not, unless we start moderating them, which is a pain.

I am off to England tonight for 2 weeks, with my Canon 40D of course.

See you when I get back...
