The Wind & The Ocean, Hawaii
#landscapephotography , #photographyworkflow

I love watching the waves break as they approach the shore in Hawaii. While strolling on the beach on a windy day I decided to capture the wonderful turquoise color of the ocean. I had to find a spot there the wave were breaking just at the right distance to be able to see the rich colors of the ocean.

How was this photograph created?
Who says you cant take good photograph in Harsh Light? This photo was taken in middle of the afternoon under the blue skies. In most cases harsh afternoon light would ruin your photo but while photographing the ocean the harsh afternoon light brings out the colors in the water. I had to use high shutter speed and carefully select the exposure (using histogram) to keep the water from over exposing. I did use a polarizer to bring out the colors in the sky and the ocean.

Enjoy & Share.

+Eckbert Dollhofer I had to take several shots before I got a good one...the problem was that the foam in the water in some of the shots would overwhelm the colors.

+Melanie Kintz It is amazing how many photos you can see if you just let yourself wander around on the scene and look for interesting things. I wished I had a longer zoom lens and I would have been able to capture more details...There is always next time.
 
azzurro troppo bello ma esiste ??

Are there two sets of water-body with different density, here ? On the right most side I see dark blue and rest of the photo has light blue.
Sprayed water is captured very nicely.
 
I´d love to be there!

that is really pretty! love the color of the water! <3
 
offshores create the plume, lovely
 
Very..Pretty. The water is really BLEU!!
 
+Allie Zitvogel Read the F-in description, he said Hawaii. And technically the only reason the ocean is blue is from our atmosphere. Water actually isnt blue.
 
Very fluent in the brightness of the lovely tones of turquoise.
 
Is the water warm there??? I live near Monteray where the water is freezing so I was just wondering.
 
thank you for sharing jay it sure is beautiful i never been to hawaii mary r
 
+Melanie Kintz 280mm (actually I used 200mm Lens with 1.4x converter) on a crop factor camera. You can look at the photo details in the viewer.

+Rekha Rao Good observation. The color of the water depends upon the amount of sunlight it reflects back...so the different depth of the ocean will give you different colors. You can easily see this with your own eyes when you travel in area with shallow water depth (such as Florida Keys).

+Lizzy Kaufman Yep...warm enough to go swimming. :-)))
 
+ sinister kirkpatrick - sorry some people, like me don't waste their time reading pointless descriptions and getting mad at people asking innocent questions
