Very excellent!! Though the lens distortion on the horizon is distracting.

C'est sûr que ça change totalement de ta dernière photo héhé ! Tu es allé voir la Bretagne alors !?! C'est beau hein :D
Très épuré, peut être un chouilla trop à mon propre goût mais belle ambiance :nod:

Merci. On était à Pornic. La photo là c'est la pointe de saint Gildas à Préfailles. C'est joli la Bretagne, surtout les rochers qui se prêtent bien aux photos.

Did you take it from a lower position or something?
Reply
:iconmaximecourty:
MaximeCourty Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2012  Professional Photographer
Thank you, not very low position but the wide angle with this type of framing alows to see just in front of your feets. I must care to don't have the tripod's legs in the photo sometimes.

Nice shot! Though I think I see some barrel distortion, maybe that could be tweaked?
Reply
:iconmaximecourty:
MaximeCourty Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2012  Professional Photographer
Thank you. It surely could be tweaked but I don't usually do this. It's the same barrel distortion as all my photos at 17mm, it is just more noticeable here with the horizon. I like to keep it like this. It is an affair of taste, half of the people like the wide angle effect, half don't like.

Nice shot! I really like that curved shape that the horizon has. The foreground and background are well exposed. Did you use a nd filter or nd grad or even post processing?

MaximeCourty Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2012  Professional Photographer
Thank you. I merge manualy different exposures to deal with the contrast between the differents zones of the photo.
