Monro Splash by mark-flammable Monro Splash by mark-flammable
EDIT: I re edited the file for the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers Iris Awards... its sorta the national photo competition. Anyway, I have lightened some areas and used my new (new from when I edited this first) processing workflow to edit the shot. I got a score of 81% which is a silver award! Im quite happy with that result!

I also entered Smokin' DJ which also won a silver award with 80%


To see what I have done, compare it to the original upload here

Thanks so much to `kkart for featuring this for my 2nd Daily Deviation and to *MirkyJedi for the kind suggestion and flattering words about this shot!

EDIT:
Slightly larger file (15px higher) to fit within regulations!

Thank you to everyone for all the :+fav:s and support!

This was sort of the point I wanted to get to for sunset on the first day of our road trip up the West Coast - I originally wanted to get to Knights Point (which is the rocks just below the setting sun) but there wasnt quite the view I wanted so we continued to the start of this track which took a good 30-40 mins to walk onto this stony beach (thats not sand - very small + smooth pebbles).
This was the sunset on New Years Eve and we had a perfect full moon rise 30mins after the sun had set which was a cool sight - didnt get any shots tho as we had to go set up camp before night and cook dinner!

The place was ABSOLUTELY sandfly infested - my girlfriend sat down for 5 mins to read while I was enjoying this... she looked down and her blue pants had turned black from the sheer number of sandflies! I hate the little buggers! Needless to say she went back down the track to the car and left me to get eaten alive!

I learned a lot from ~joerossbachs videos and came up with a my version of the process.

I mainly liked the process of Trillium falls but use some double/triple RAW processing blends too.

Thanks Phil.

I dont know if you know, but you can make links say what you want using some very simple html code. It wont take long to remember it:

< a href="[link]">Featured Gallery</ a>
when I take the spaces out before both 'a's it looks like this:
Featured Gallery

Also, if you write : dev panoramicshot: without the spaces it comes out like:
#panoramicshot

Just a few things that dont take any more time really but make things look a lot better!

i know how to write HTML and CSS code, but i thought this is restricted to premium members only. there was a time where this notation was valid to set hyperlinks here on dA :O_o:

so then by beautifying the message above it should be:

congratulations! this work has been added to the Featured Gallery of #panoramicshot
