Surf Break

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 12 March 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A long exposure photo showing an offshore hazard marker in the sea lane approaches to the docks in Liverpool.

The white lines in front of the marker are the areas where the surf was breaking.

I love long exposures. They introduce us to a world only accessible through the lens. Excellent.

Ralph Jones from Detroit, United States

Excellent long exposure, it gives the subject a surreal mood.

I looked at this a few times trying to decide why it is so good. It is not just the processing and the composition but the sense of mystery. The blur of the foreground. I had to read the description.

i quite like the simplicity of the composition - there is just something geometrically very "right" about it... coupled with good shutter speed to smooth out the water and waves it works very well!
