    Wonderful textures

    What is it ?

    Can tell if it is water flowing around the object or if it is just how the sand look after the water drained

    love all the different textures in this and the cyanotype processing gives it an other-worldly feel

    If it is sharp in large print it as it is here it would make a good one. Nice shot.

    Re: Time&Tide

    Thanks armando, it is a shellfish known here as a Pipi (pronounced pippy) the water is receding in this shot and the pipi is partially submerged I got a bit wet getting this one.
    Thanks Jim, the colours were nice but not spectacular so I decided to go with the textures and hence the B&W.
    Hadn't occured to me to print Greg , appreciate the thought.
    Thanks sirknow

    Re: Time&Tide

    Nice one, Pete! I like the textures and at the same time there is a pleasing softness from the flow of the receding water. great placement of the shell in the frame.

    If its b&w, its a tinted b&w and looks more like a cyanotype as Jim mentioned.

    Nice work

    Re: Time&Tide

    Thanks AE and Gary, there is as observed a blueish tint applied after the conversion, the straight b&w looked a bit stark in this case. Pushing the blue slider almost hard to the right bought out the water texture a lot more.
    Btw thanks for the heads up on the cyanotype thing I'd never heard of it till you guys mentioned it, a fascinating process.

    Re: Time&Tide

    Fantastic shot. I am very new to photography and love B&W shots. How did you achieve the textures

    Re: Time&Tide

    Thanks Adamo, you said you are new to photography so I am a bit unsure of your post processing skills but if it helps I'll try to explain what I did. With this one I put a normal layer over a tone mapped layer and set opacity to about 20% then burnt any hot spots. This bought out the sand texture, then I masked the pipi so only the tone mapped version was visible. After converting to b&w I pushed the blue slider hard right this enhanced the water texture , and added a bluish tint. Hope this makes sense

    Re: Time&Tide

    Thank you. I have had my camera about a year, but only recently realized I needed to add Photoshop. All this time, I thought people were capturing these great images without post production editing. (na´ve no) I am learning about layers, but it is proving more difficult than learning the camera. Thank you for your technique on this, it gives me things to play with. I posted a picture on this forum, please let me know what you think.
