    Brilliant David!
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Tim :)
    On the very next shot, I had to grab the camera and run as the waves decided right then would be a good idea to wet the sand I was standing on ;-)

    Great shot David!!
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Rodel - used a Cokin Graduated ND8 on this one.
    Thanks Simon :)
    Yeah very happy with the L glass :)
    Thanks Morten. I made use of the grid in live-view mode to ensure the composition was right (well until I the grid focus screens come back in stock in Australia anyway).
    Thanks Katherine :)

  • InterfacePublications said:
    This is a great series David, well done. You should consider another exhibition.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Rob. It's a thought. Have to consider that one carefully, given how much it costs to put one on.
  • InterfacePublications said:
    Yeah I know. Hunt around for a local cafe or restaurant that wants something to pull in patrons. This last series is top quality stuff. There is a certain well-known photographer who can't do it any better than that, just bigger. :-)
  • David de Groot said:
    hehehe I know whom you refer to ;-)
  • HPVD Photos said:
    Excellent shot David, especially like the foreground, nice one.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :) the rocks weren't exactly spectacular like the other side of the beach around here, but we made the most of them anyway ;-)

  • David de Groot said:

  • dlaurini said:
    Beautiful image, my friend
  • mortenprom said:
    David de Groot I find my self using the live view more and more. It is a lot easier when I shoot from a low angel :))
  • mortenprom said:
    mortenprom You look like a guy who comes back to the comments you make to check out if you've got a reply :))
    Do you use some sort of GreaseMonkey userscript to keep track of when the owner of a photo you commented on makes a new comment...? I find it hard to keep up the such feedback comments...
  • Justice shoots said:
    i love how it looks like they are mini mountains and your at the very top
  • thebookfreak58 said:
    Dave: I know I know don't rub it in :-P
  • Photogizmo said:
    Stunning image!
  • David de Groot said:
    I find the grid lines help a great deal too.
    As for keeping track of comments, I'm a bit of a "Recent Activity" junkie. I check back a couple of times a day, but usually only the first page of activity.
    Yeah they do look like that a bit now that you've pointed it out. (cool icon btw - gotta love Mr Squiggle and friends)
    Thanks :)
