I am from Palos Verdes, and I think you have done a great job portraying the beauty of the place. I just wish that there were more gradations in the sunset and more details in the rocks...

of the water and the sun. I love the foreground that mirrors the sky.


Re: the previous poster's comment; I bet the jpeg just isn't showing some of the rock detail/dynamic range.

I like this shot, very effective. I would crop out some of the bottom though since the blackness is dead space that detracts from the great scenery above though.

I agree, JPEG compression is probably dropping lots of the detail, especially since it should be there on Velvia, right?


If it is possible, can you provide a higher resolution, higher quality JPEG? I would really like to see the photo with more detail and fewer JPEG artifacts.


Also, there seems to be a black smudge along the right margin in the upper-right corner. What is that? It does not appear to be natural...

The black smudge on the upper right hand corner is the edge of my lens hood. This was my first outing with a 4x5 and I didnt know better. The original image has much more detail in the foreground...the secret to the photo was a .9 neutral density filter, other than that, some good luck on the weather!
