Magenta Morning

January 17th, 2010

This is a shot from a morning excursion to the beach. This 3-minute shot was taken at 6:16am during the sunrise. The morning was really beautiful and it was incredible seeing the ocean light up with the rising sun.

Nikon D90 with Sigma 10-20mm.

This is nice, but on my screen i can see a bit of noise here and there..i don't know if this is just a problem of the screen, but it ruins this shot :|

Someone went nuts with the radial blur tool!

@lerch, you really think noise ruins a shot? Really?

@knaim2, thanks!

@Quatrix, I know, this isn't my favorite but it can be someone else's cup of tea.

@debichu, didn't touch it at all actually. It was a three minute exposure so the fast moving clouds that were coming towards me blurred naturally.

3 minute exposure??!? Nice! I'm looking into getting the D90 as well. Do you like it?

if you didnt touch it at all how can it be that the sky and the refelection in the water show something totally different?? and noise ruins wallpapers but not always shots.

paul.charles.k, yes I do..i think a well-done shot shold be clean and the more possible detailed..if some part of it is noisy i think all the shot is ruined..my personal opinion, not a critique :)

I think this would've been a good shot if it was just a click and done. I think seeing the reflection in the water would've really set this off. This is only my opinion. I am in no ways a photographer. :)

uuuu, because the sky and water move differently...

@BKBProductions, yeah, this was still before the sun actually rose so it was actually pretty dark. I love the D90 very much and have never once wished it were a different camera. I would absolutely recommend it.

@Paradise-PR.com, I don't know, I guess I broke the laws of nature. It's seriously untouched--it's just how it turned out.

@lerch84, whatever, clearly you are not a photographer or you'd know it's pretty impossible. If you run noise reduction, you lose detail so either side of the coin, you can't win. I left the detail there.

@johnstorer, thanks!

@Evil Napkin, unfortunately, it was too dark to be a click and done. The reflection is the water would have been less visible in a click and done, anyways. The fastest this shot could have been taken was a minute at ISO 400 and two minutes at ISO 200 (which is what lerch84 wanted). However, I didn't think the long exposure ruined it so I went with f/8 to improve sharpness.

@Brushfire, thanks, it's true and makes sense. I really didn't touch it up.

@ilovemyking, thanks again for the compliments.

So, why there are a lot of hots on IFL that are very clear and detailed at the same time even though they're not post-processed?

@lerch84, i don't think there is a right and wrong to photography. so what if it's not as clear and sharp as others? does that mean you have to downgrade it? it's completely fine.

knaim2, i only said i see a bit of noise in it and that is not impossible to take a clear and detailed shot..this doesn't mean i downgrade this shot at all.

@lerch84: "this doesn't mean i downgrade this shot at all"
- so why did you write "it ruins this shot" in your first comment?

@paul.charles.k: knaim2 is right. and it's obvious you didn't use a radial blur. people on this site get a submission of theirs selected/posted and all of a sudden they're god's gift to photography. meanwhile almost all the negative comments on this site seem to be shot from the hip and uneducated. people should try a bit of research, logical thinking, reading the photographer's description of the photo and most of all - trying the technique! Then talk about noise, etc. gimme a break.

I just expressed my opinion, but your answers sound to me like: "We're right and you're wrong", so I stop my comments here.

Great Picture thank you for sharing!!! It looks great on a 27 Inch iMac screen!

not a fan. I think it was chosen because of the length of time it was shot.

phh no.. where did the picture go? please don't say it was because of the morons who posted dumb comments however can't post any of their own work to lend credibility to their assertions ?

@lerch84, they have a shorter exposure time. They shoot lower ISO. "but it ruins this shot" "this doesn't mean i downgrade this shot at all."

@Brushfire, thanks for helping.

@lerch84, just because you express your opinion doesn't mean others can't attack it.

@Coolerman, the spot must have been something under the water because it's in all of the shots of that area.

@ozymandias, your welcome, enjoy.

@Haak, I don't think it was chosen because the length of the shot considering that information isn't available to voters. Thanks for playing though.

@Ozymandias, you don't have to post your own work to critique. You don't have to be good at singing to know good singing if you're trained. The problem is, they just don't know what they;re talking about--I don't care if they are actually photographers.

Oh, that's real clever. I was referring to the picture being chosen by the people behind this site, and the information is available to them.

your welcome?

wow.

Also, Haak, I look at some of your Loupe submissions. They are pretty good; it's a shame they haven't gotten on here yet. Do you have a flickr or anywhere to get larger versions?

Amazing picture! Do you use a filter
Posted By: Haak
about 4 years, 8 months ago
Ok, so I was being a jerk and you're just sincere. I'm sorry! No I don't.

Oh and I'm sorry! Seriously I feel bad but the people behind this site do choose some even if they aren't voted on the most, cause that's the way they did it before the voting.

But anyway I apologize.

@Cara, no filters for this picture, no.

@Haak, no hard feelings :)

why is this picture causing so much controversy? just because it's not what you would do doesn't, or there's something you personally don't like, doesn't mean that it isn't overall a nice composition. i admire paul for for getting up so early and waiting 17 minutes to get the shot and he should receive some credit instead of pointing out all kinds of "flaws" that you personally do not like.
and i don't understand why everyone is saying "it should have been a click and done"
didn't you read description? it was 4:50 BEFORE sunrise... last time i checked it's dark before sunrise.. if he had just "clicked and done" then you would see barely anything in the picture...

i think it's a wonderful composition, good work paul.
