Dragonhead

This is located at No. 16 Beach in Rye, Melbourne.

It's an amazing rock feature that only shows itself at low tide.

I had in mind to capture a Long Exposure exposure of this scene but the bird decided to dance around on the rock.

As I watched the bird does his thing, a rogue swell came along and almost swept my gear and myself off.

Instead of trying to execute my initial concept, thought I try to capture all three elements in their right exposure.

Amazing capture...
Well done sir!

Beautiful image, great capture. I do think the processing made it a touch too painterly though. I can't really put my finger on why I think this, perhaps the lighting on the water, and the light in the distant background all combine to make it seem a bit too perfect.

This is purely personal taste, the image as it is looks fantastic.
