Whether in good or bad weather, I find the rugged coastlines of northern California & Oregon always captures my attention,& can not pass these great stacks jutting out of the sea, or when the tides out ,from the sandy beach, without trying to capture the ruggedness & beauty of it.Hope I did justice to what I viewed that day.I tried out a conversion to B&W using Rogers method in CS5, altering only the Red & Yellow controls see WS for result.

Hi Ronald,
What a nice play with light! Great POV with a considerable DOF. You managed to produce such a perspective with this impressionable depth.
Very sharp FG with that touch of contrast while the soft BG is enhancing the composition.
Well seen and neatly presented.
My est regards,

Francis Xavier

Very nice composition and both the color and B&W versions work well in diffferent ways.



Hello Ronald,you have introduced me to a beautiful area that I had no idea existed!
This rugged coast line is well portrayed,very atmospheric,I admire your treatment very much.
Best regards Les.

Beautiful capture of the Oregon coast. I used to hit the coast a lot when I live in Portland. Great pov and it has a good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Ronald,

beautiful landscape captured - I didn't know that the Oregon coast was decorated with these massive boulders! I don't think I'd ever get bored exploring this coast line. Very effective DOF - it creates such a nice depth into the photo. Lovely time of day to capture the light and shadows and contrasts.

Hi Ron,

While I like both versions, I think the B&W has more impact. Nicely composed and like your use of the foreground grasses to anchor us to the shot.

Best regards,

Hi Ronald...great sot...excellent composition and tones...really beautiful.
Great job on the black and white conversion Ron...


Well done Ronald! It reminds me of a scene on a fantasy movie. The composition is superb. I like the effect created by the sharp foreground and subject, and the lighter background. TFS.

Great light, I think this is a great location for long exposure shots and to see a milky sea between the rocks.



What a superb shot from a such a beautiful coast, Ron!

I love the light and the moss covered rocks.
The colors are amazing and clarity is nice.
An immense mood has been perfectly reflected within this work.
Well taken!
