Knob with a View

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! I’ve enough Celt in me to be happy.

And maybe it is the Celt in me that feels the pull of this image. So many lines and layers, interesting textures, the splash of green for color, and the drama of the clouds and sea. Down low with the flip out LCD for this, placing the rock so that it breaks an otherwise unfortunate horizon line in the middle of the composition. The rock pulls the eye and focuses the whole, giving it, to my eye, a dynamic that keeps me looking past the first glance.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent. F4 @ 1/500th @ ISO 80. Landscape Program.

In Lightroom, some Recovery for the sky, and Fill Light for the foreground. Blackpoint to the right. Added Clarity and more than my usual Vibrance (for the Canon), to pick up the green. Sharpen landscape preset.

From San Diego 2010.
