Moonlit Ocean I by Manwathiell Moonlit Ocean I by Manwathiell
My husband and I spent last week at the hut... and I had to thank for the AMAZING weather we could enjoy. And the peace! It was so fantastic, that I felt like having spent a month out :nod:

This time I wanted to try long exposure shots of the moonlit ocean.

I have many shots with different exposures, length of fields and ISO's. I will learn from the exif data + from what I remember on the REAL light (what you see is what the camera captured, NOT what I was seeing)... and I hope to get feedback from those of you who know far more than me.
Deviants new to this kind of photos might find the exif data helpful and interesting, too.

I am not uploading all of them today, and many will go to my scraps. I will make sure to keep linking the scraps to those shots posted in my gallery (the upload order will be random, but the exif data will show dates and times so ordering them will not be difficult).

I also remembered (but only on the last day) to fix the camera clock. If you see 2 pm, it's actually 6 pm or 6:30.
(If you see any time around 6, the clock will be ok).

In most shots I experienced serious pixelation problems, specially on the sky. I might find out why... or not. Comments and constructive critiques are ALWAYS welcome!

I like the light and the movement of the water. It makes me wish I was there and could walk on the front letting the waves wash over my feet. Peaceful!

Hola, Lucas !!
Sabes que yo soy algo conservadora al momento de agregar personas a mi watch. Pero ya leí tus comentarios (que ahora iré respondiendo) y veo que eres de ley, así que bienvenido a mi grupo de amigos y muchas gracias por agregarme al tuyo!

Las fotos de mar nocturnas de mi galería (hay varias, bastantes, escondidas incluso en mis scraps) fueron mi primer experiencia sacando fotos de noche, probando diferentes exposiciones.
Son de Barra de Valizas, en Rocha. Un pueblito de pescadores.
Ahí tenemos un ranchito con mi esposo y vamos todos los veranos (y en Carnaval, Turismo... y cada vez que logramos escaparnos) en una zona sin luz. Es hermoso! Bastante agreste aún, aunque cada vez está más poblado.

Es mi paraíso de paz y distensión. Ahí me encuentro a mi misma y a la naturaleza que tanto amo. Recupero mis energías para el año laboral.

Es bellísimo, y me alegra saber que te gustara la noche en la playa.
No siempre se da que la luna esté en posición ideal para este tipo de tomas.
Fui afortunada !!

Un abrazo,
M.

John is sound throughout his critique M,they are all fairly minor things though.
I don`t know if the (ever) so slightly dropping horizon bothers you but that can be easily rectified in image editing progs,I don`t find it too distracting at all here though.

I adore the sweep of the shore you captured here M,it`s perfectly placed within the image,the reflected moonlight is beautiful too :aww:
Very well done M! :clap:

Actually I had leveled the horizon, but I´ll have to
use a square ruler from now on! :laughing:
I thought it was ok now, but seems I´ll need to recheck :nod:

It means a lot to me that you like it. There are more to come.
These were the first tries of the first day... I think I did
better on the second :plotting:
