Alex, Patrick and I saw this hut along the beach and decided to talk a photo of it. Interestingly, all three of us came out with a totally different photo. This is mined.






Thanks for sharing this Mel, here's min at a different angle with different mood..

Haha. Nice group hug :P

Pat,

Beautiful wave painting shots. I like how the light hits the waves in "Crashing Light".

Edwin,

Really beautiful detail and travel shots. Your keen eye never ceases to amaze me.


Finally, I got to process a couple more photos. I know this subject has been posted here several times but then would I think it would be a waste not to share my own take on them too.

Patrick,

Great b/w's!

Aids,

Asan na mga b/w masterpieces mo? I wanna see them...the very artistic side of Aids hehehehe.


Finally had time to process some photos after a week of work. Here are some, well B sides that I finished.

This was taken in the shores of Baras, we were just in time to witness a marvelous sunrise. This was taken as we called the bus to stop, hurriedly placed my tripod and searched for whatever FG element available.

MORNING'S DISPLAY OF HUES



View large here http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4123/4825874292_8870f853f8_b.jpg, I had a problem with this shot since we immediately went down the air-conditioned coaster, condensation was apparent in our gears and I had to keep wiping the grad.


This was taken far below from the first shot. The waves were starting to come in and the sun was already above the mountain ranges from my left, showering colors opposite its direction.



Please view the 1000px size here http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4079/4825876762_9e39fc4e81_b.jpg


Will try to process more...Thanks.

Hmmm, TFS? An engaging comment.


More from the sunrise shot from Baras, Catanduanes. We could have used a few minutes earlier to make this set wonderful but late as it is, we still went to capture the morning light.


REUNION

I haven't taken alot of monochromatic landscape photos. I usually like my landscapes and seascapes in full color. Thanks to EdwinM for sharing a lot of tips on Black & White landscape photography during this trip. Now I'm starting to love this genre of photography.

Earlier in the trip, I was reading an e-book by extraordinary landscape photography couple Varina and Jay Patel. I came across a statement that stuck to my mind while shooting these B&W scenes.

"I am a particular lover of black and white photography because it allows me to remove
color as a distracting element – thereby directing  the viewers focus to detail, texture, or
contrast. Competing colors in a photograph sometimes hide the more subtle textures that drew the photographer’s eye. Removing the riot of color removes that distraction
completely, leaving the viewer free to notice and appreciate the textures – no longer so
subtle."

Here's my take of Puraran beach...hope the guys won't mind me posting so late.

Thanks again to Edwin, Aids, Pat, Melvin and Alex for having me around and teaching me in my journey to learn and appreciate landscape photography.

Scouting Puraran...the lesson taught to me by the more experienced photogs (or more commonly known as Masters) was to scout the area for your shots the next day.  Visualize how the light will play in the scene...this is my take..

PS. Sorry, I seem to be having difficulty linking my photos from Flickr...can anybody help..thanks.

Rendezvous with the Sunburst

This is one of my favorite shots during the trip. We chanced upon this cave at the end of Batihay Beach. It looked very interesting, so we hired a small fishing boat that was passing by to ferry us across the short distance.

I was literally seated in the same place for about an hour and a half, just waiting for the sun to set. When the right time came, the sunset bathed the sky with an intense yellow, beautifully framed by the jagged rock formation.
