Dreaming Awake by benkhill Dreaming Awake by benkhill
Soft winter light combined with a dramatic winter ocean hits the coasts of Montana De Oro State Park, CA
20 minutes before this shot i and my camera were completely drenched by a wave almost like a Shamu show at sea world, thankfully i had my rain cover on my gear

Great attention on exposure : nothing burned. And I really like the pose length : neither too much nor too little.

Stunning colours, and the waves make for a very intense, dramatic shot. I want to compliment everything about this, but it leaves me at a loss for words. It's pretty much perfect.

Beautifully captured - you got just the right amount of white. Is this right - 1.3s?

Oh, these colors! I don't think I have the proper words in my brain to describe how awesome this is. So I just say:

Awesome!

Again, a very awesome shot Ben. Although, if I may comment constructively here, the blues look very saturated.

I de-saturated the blues in the wave behind the rock a bit.

I really like this shot! It's perfectly exposed, very well composed, I love movement of the water, and of course the sky is beautiful! Very good work
