The Last Green, Pebble Beach, CA
#PhotographyWorkflow, #howtophotograph

I took this photograph while shooting with some friends few year ago just north of Pigeon Point Light house. I was showing a group of students how to use the GND filters when I took this photograph.

How was this image created?
I used a hard Edge GND filter to balance out the light between the sky and the ground. The filter edge was aligned just below the rocks (accounting for the darkening of the rock at the very top). The composition was selected to fill the lower part of the frame with the Green Moss growing in the region.

If you look carefully you can see the light reflecting from the pool as well as the rock beneath the surface.

Enjoy & Share.

Wonderful work! Love your composition! Thank you for sharing what went into help pull it off. My GRD s arived in the mail today :) looking forward use them to help me capture the landscapes near where I live. Thank you again +Jay Patel you do incredable work and I find it inspirantional. Allan +David Faught you need to do some reading on filters and what is required to take photos with this type of light. There is no photo that truley reproduses the scene as how it looked at the time the photo was taken. Allan
 
WowX2. Where is the video tutorial that accompanies this image? I can't wait to start shooting like this when my D800 (pre-ordered) comes in. So throw a tutorial together so I can practice with my D200.
 
this is very peaceful looking love the colors
 
THERE MUST BE A GOD, INFACT IF THIS SO INEXPLAINABLE WHAT HEAVEN WILL BE LIKE?
 
OK...ok... i am not trying to be an ass, Awesome Pic. You have talent, but i dont know if its because It's been a while.... but it looks like a very nice vagina to me. sorry, i may have issues.
 
Pretty nifty looking there, +Jay Patel

What would you say is the majority of your subject matter...???

It takes a real talent to capture mother nature in all her beauty. Fantastic photo - well done!
 
Magnificent art! May I post this (giving credit, of course)?
 
I recall the vantage, but your photograph captures it so beautifully, I felt it better than being there. Would love to know exactly how you negated the glare on the pool to reveal the depths of it!
 
I can see that you used HDR, but I love the fact that you kept it natural. It's simply GORGEOUS! Congratulations!
 
wow! what an amazing picture. not as impressive as seeing it in real life, but a very good capturing of a moment in time
 
eye-catching scene. beautiful colors. well done
 
WOOW!! What a nice photo! good shot man!

this image was created by god, by god; research shows him/her as an individual intitie that is within all who finally admit they know not all the answers, still ask 'why', and admit that's just the way it is without giving up hope of understanding, a grace to admit it it, or them, or what the f ever.../gabe

Oh, I thought you meant the 18th hole.
 
Since I have run out of superlatives, I'll just admire the image and forget about the comment :-)
 
The textures are awesome. It tells a story, but I'm afraid to write it and break the mood.
 
Wo.... the scene is so beautiful. But i have a question,i,e, in fact, is the real scene not as beautiful as what you have photograhyed?
 
And the second question is which corner you choose when you take this pic? It seems you take it on the helicopter.
