Smoothing out the waves by isotophoto Smoothing out the waves by isotophoto
It was a little chilly and I was originally planning to be sensible and not play around in the water with my camera...but I couldn't resist :)

Well I'm not one for criticism and you shall not receive any the perspective in this photo is perfect.

The sun highlighting the waves gives it a very warm but cold feeling and the form of the waves can be seen clearly.

Also the glare from the sun doesn't take up any significant portion of the photo and keeps the focus on the waves over all its a nice piece.

Since their's is a one hundred word minimum I'd like to say a few additional things without accidentally brown nosing.

Your gallery is lovely sir I hope you continue to submit many more deviations.
What do you think?

very interesting... very nice image... great light and color. I've been doing some different things (not to be found on dA) with longer exposures, 30 seconds, partly supported by use of ND filters. you might play around with that and see if it gives you different sense of the motion of the water...

I agree, it would be nice to try longer exposures on shots like this. I have a polarizer and 0.6 grad ND right now, which does let me slow the shutter a little bit, but slowing it to several seconds or even a minute or two during daylight could create some interesting results. Thanks for the feedback!

you are most welcome. I discovered variable ND filters a while ago; most use them to capture video via DSLR, but they are very versatile and useful in creating the long exposures...
