You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension. I enjoy photographing waves, despite the cold, wet feet (no matter how high your boots are, they’re 1/2” too short). But it sure is frustrating—waves are not inclined to pose. I spend a lot of time watching in order to figure out the wave timing and recognize the patterns most likely to recur. But even then, no two waves behave the same, so compositional “planning” has a lot more in common with wishful thinking than I'd like to admit. This image is from just north of Trinidad on the California coast, and the wet sand is so dark because it's reflecting a shaded conifer forest on the shore.
