空島 (The island in the sky)

This is where it all began, my passion for photography, while I lived in Japan.
I decided to use an ND filter to smooth out the ocean and make the sky and sea blend together as one, just like the symbol of marriage that this kind of rocks represents in Japan.

wow, im really impressed by how razor sharp this is. Did you add the fog on the water in post?

Gerald Macua's picture

The quality of a Zeiss lens :) manual focus but so sharp! No fog was added in post, it’s just the water being smoothed out by the ND filter

Probably mostly the quality from a photographer that knows what hes doing :) What zeiss lens model were you using?
