Surf Foam

Surf Foam

A day of particularly foamy surf, which left all kinds of interesting patterns on the beach. Each lasted only a second before it dissolved so you had to keep your wits about you and your finger on the shutter release. This particular extended line never happened again while I was there.

I cropped the image in Lightroom to place the leading line at the left corner.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide (31mm equivalent). F5.6 @ 1/1000 @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

In Lightroom I cropped as above, and straightened the horizon slightly. Graduated filter to darken sky. Clarity and Vibrance, and a very mild sharpen. Because the sharpening routine in the camera, due I think to the angle of the lens to the plane of the image (tipped down), had already sharpened the horizon portion of the image quite a bit, I used less sharpening than normal, and applied a bit of luminance noise reduction.
