    Default Pt Danger - Snapper Rocks

    After our stroll around Fingal Head we moved up the coast only a few short k's ...

    This is the big NS-EW monument in Tweed Heads over looking Flagstaff Beach/ Pt Danger


    The view from next to the monument ... this is the beach where I took all those surfing shots ...


    Down on the beach ... one of the many Cabbage Trees in the area


    Some of the interesting rocks on the beach ...


    Water rips through a hole in the rock at the Snapper Rocks area just a short walk north from Flagstaff Beach ...


    Chantelle walks on the rocks at Snapper Rocks .... sorry ... bit of a bad HDR this one ...

    very nice set here MA - even though one of these things is not like the other, that one is my fave Love the imposing feel you've created there; fabulous framing! The tones in shot 6 (especially the tones on the people themselves) are also just beautiful. HDR is it? If not, can you describe the PP a bit?

    Hey thanks everyone. Glad you like.

    Marko ... yes shot 6 is an HDR (as is shot 3) ... I actually mentioned this above the photo because it's a bad HDR in my opinion but I really liked the scene.

    Some amazing scenery there. Makes me want to break out a lawn chair!

    I also love number one. Kinda reminds me of a tower you might see in an epic fantasy novel about an evil wizard or something.

    Hmmm - why do you say that? (I'd love the technical answer)
    Thx! M

    Iggy ... you must be a Lord of the Rings fan or something!

    Marko ... first of all it's a landscape scene that is obviously HDR, something I personally try to avoid these days. I prefer my landscape HDR's to look more like shot 3. In this case it has lost some of the shadows I'd have liked to keep.
    2ndly, I didn't have my tripod on me so it was shot handheld and the lack of sharpness bothers me.
    3rdly I think it required more than 3 frames to cover more stops as it has resulted in a strange pink/apricot cast across the central section.

    I'd have tossed this one had it not been for Chantelle walking on the rocks near the two little girls.

    I really like the first shot. You may turn me into a fan of black and white. The interesting rocks - looks like that translates to, "walk on me, lose shoes, maybe a bit of blood". And cabbage trees? Why are they called that?
