12.04.2015 Ocean Sunrise

Browsing through the folders, I found a couple more from our time at Acadia N.P. in October.  Today’s view is from the rocks along Ocean Path, just a little past Thunder Hole.

  1. I’ll just sit here for a while and enjoy the view. Beautiful capture, Steve.

    • Thanks, I.K.
      One of the nicer things about sharing images is being able to enjoy certain things with friends who would otherwise not see them. Of course, there are things the friends see that I don’t, so the sharing goes both ways. 🙂

  2. The dark grey does do a good job of setting off the centered photograph.
    You’re still the king of sunrises.


    • I think most images are better presented with a black border so there are fewer distractions, but not all agree. The contrast between light and dark is, of course, how digital sharpening works and the theory behind the Rembrandt effect.
      Thanks for the kind words regarding my sunrise images, Steve.

    There’s something special that happens when you have rocks and water, then stir in a gorgeous sunset.

    I am very impressed at the foreground detail Steve, which just adds to the quality of the image

    I do think the dark gray background does a good job of setting off the photo. Personally, I find it more appealing than black, which always seems stark to me, with too much contrast — except in occasional, specific instances where it can really enhance a photo. But iwth this one, the dark gray picks up the color of the rocks, and the entire screen — image and border — fits together nicely.

    • Sometimes it is necessary to have a strong contrast for light to fully give off its illumination within a photograph. In an earlier comment to Steve, I mentioned the Rembrandt effect. It is one way of creating an illusion of depth by placing a dark subject in front of a light background or vice versa. That is why I chose this dark gray for my blog background and hope that most if not all the visitors here are able to see that.
