Very nice and beautiful place
The long exposure and the great composition
makes the picture very nice calmness.
The great point of view creates with the
stones on the forground a beautiful depth in
this picture. The light management is as

I'm glad that the place remained the same as in your childhood. Lovely atmosphere, a little bit mysterious. The camera is great for sure.
Enjoy the weekend.

This is both a peaceful and moody picture created by the long exposure and the blue tones. Super depth and sharpness on the rocks. The image just exudes quality - love it!
Kind Regards, Ann

I always wanted to capture the beach scene in slow shutter and this shot is really inspiring. The composition is stunning with the puffy water creating a dreamy feel in the frame.
Thanks and have a nice evening.

Very, very beautiful and lovely.

mi piace l'angolo di inquadratura con la costa che si apre al mare con le sue rocce.
Effetto dell'acqua come al solito molto suggestivo,

Good Morning Lisa,
There's nothing quite like playing with a new toy!
You obviously had fun.
This is a delightfully moody shot achieved with the slow shutter speed. Your well chosen pov uses the f/g rocks to advantage, leading into the shot and creating a fine sense of depth.
Have a good day,
vishaal (1002) 2012-02-17 1:18
Hi Dear Lisa, A wonderful shot with memories from you.. Great waters, a dreamy place. Wonderful composition.
ikeharel (44279) 2012-02-17 1:27
What a magic you done with the 45sec. exposure, Lisa.
A fabulous beach scenery in blue hour.
My cong.'s for the new camera, enjoy a nice weekend.
bayno (18338) 2012-02-17 2:00
hai comprato la nuova 5D MK2? nuova?
45 secondi di esposizione e si vede...l'effetto slow motion sul mare è fantastico, molto belli i toni blu e l'inquadratura, una fortuna aver passato l'infanzia in questo luogo selvaggio e incontaminato...la tua macchina funziona alla perfezione...e anche tu...
un abbraccio, Valter
lousat (64513) 2012-02-17 2:03
Ciao Lisa,con tempi di esposizione ancora piu' lunghi che la tua nuova camera offre,chissa' come ti sei divertita..ehehe..queste foto sono davvero spettacolari,purtroppo con la mia macchina devo aspettare la sera,non supera gli f/8 e i 30 sec..eheh..buona giornata,Luciano

Your new toy seems to be working wonderfully well but any machine is only as good as the engine driver! And, as always, you've got the most out of your machine by using your innate skills to the utmost.
The beautiful appearance of the water here is really the star of the show, softened wonderfully by the long shutter opening and subtly reflecting the blue of the sky.
Lovely details and sharpness in the dark rocks and headland too - it looks like you're getting more details in the shadows with this camera - do you think so too? I think you've made a new friend and colleague here with your new toy.
P.S. Have you bought yourself one of these? Very good, very cheap (about £15 here) and saves the hassle of having to plug in a corded remote release.
SnapRJW (23932) 2012-02-17 3:12
Hello Lisa - Looks like your new 'toy' doesn't disappoint! Beautiful subtle colours give a real calm feel to the shot. I really like the effect of the shutter speed on the water near the horizon, the waves have become a lovely contrasting highlight against the dark rocks. A flawless piece of work the success of which lies in the simplicity. Have fun Rosemary
bema (26179) 2012-02-17 3:13
Hi Lisa, my dear..
a brand new toy? that´s nice, so we can find soon some more of your excellent captures here on TE! a real fine location, once more, and a good thing here due to the longer exposure time!
thanks for sharing, have a nice weekend, see you around, un caro saludo, Bernd
Gigidusud (10408) 2012-02-17 4:59
Bellissima la tua spiaggia della tua infanzia!Grand lavoro con il tuo nuove giocatolo!
Sei bravissima amica mia!
timecapturer (37406) 2012-02-17 5:12
a moody atmospheric and visually enchanting composition. Love the smokey effect of the slow shutter speed and the soft blue hour light. A stylish and perfectly executed image of real beauty. Bravo!
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.
francio64 (38254) 2012-02-17 5:23
Uè Uè Lisù.
Mica male il tuo nuovo giocattolo. Hai vinto la lotteria? :))
Ovviamente scherzo! Sono contento per te! Ti auguro soltanto tutto il meglio.
Mi piace molto questa località. Qui vediamo la foto con il tuo inconfondibile stile.
Il mare diventa come seta quando sei tu a fotografarlo.
Toni blu che creano un'atmosfera da sogno.
Grazie per la condivisione. E' sempre un piacere vedere le tue foto.
Sergiom (45810) 2012-02-17 5:39
This wonderful picture is already very popular and received a lot of very good critics.Your technique is getting better every day and you give a lot of attention to every details.
Have a nice day

A mysterious, and dark vision of Curly Curl at sunrise, with misty water movement. Looks like a fine place to watch the sunrise, just the opposite here in Californication on the west end of the continent.
and continue having fun with your new toy,
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2012-02-17 8:26
,This is a wonderful shot looks like people who want to be alone. I like the color contrast between the dark rocks and bluish water. The lighting is perfect and the view is breathtaking. A sharp image with many details to be enjoyed.
sacimar (25969) 2012-02-17 8:26
this is a good night shot of this place, I like the long exposure time you chose to get the water visual effect, well done,
Have a nice weekend,
Bluejeans (64243) 2012-02-17 10:39
Ola Lisa ,
Fantástico o uso dos 45 segundo a agua parece neblina , gostei muito dos tons azul , belo ponto de visão , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
ChrisJ (91360) 2012-02-17 23:10
I like the motion blur in the water. The diagonal axis of the dark rocks on the beach adds graphism as well as dynamism & perspective. Excellent shadow detail & good sharpness. The predominant blue tones contrast well against the pale yellow red sandstone cliffs at left. Have a great weekend!
Zengi001 (2297) 2012-02-18 5:53
Ciao Dear Lisa,
Another very elegant long exposure photo.
Nice composition with inclusion of foreground rock formations.
Have a nice WE,
vasilpro (40565) 2012-02-18 10:32
Wonderful composition, lovely light and color tones, beautiful atmosphere, excellent POV and low speed impression, peaceful natural place, TfS!
Have a nice weekend, Vasilis.
willperrett (4159) 2012-02-18 11:23
Another great shot. 45 seconds, huh? Reckon that must mean it was pretty close to completely dark when you made the picture. So you have a new toy. I'm using the Mark 1 version, and can't see me being able to afford an upgrade (or frankly wanting to). By the way, my wife lost her bikini top on North Curl Curl beach in 1993. You didn't find it by any chance?
batalay (33461) 2012-02-18 13:38
Hello Dear Lisa,
There is another worldly atmosphere in this extraordinary photo. You've mastered the art of transforming liquid to vapor without boiling it. Warm regards,
angel66 (1006) 2012-02-19 0:08
adoro come riesci ad usare il tuo giocattolo! :)
Hai dato a questa foto un'atmosfera da fiaba...come agli occhi di una bambina. Brava

Hi Lisa, new toys are always fun, and it looks like you're putting this one to good use. BTW I was up in Sydney last week for work. Didn't have any free time to take any photos. Cheers, Steve
danos (78308) 2012-02-19 0:41
nice the view of this 'corner' of the beach with the spread of the rocks in the sea to create depth and perspective in the scene.I like the use of a low speed of your camera, making the surface and the movement of the sea unique.
brianmcc (5832) 2012-02-19 11:27
wow, 45 seconds. thats a long time. the effect is wonderful and quite mystical with the water and rocks merging. the dark blue colour is very striking. excellent composition.
Silvio1953 (105914) 2012-02-19 11:34
Ciao Lisa, bella e romantica, i tuoi giocattili ti ci diverti molto bene e quel che è meglio è che ci fai divertire anche a noi, splendida atmosfera, magnifica esposizione, bravissima, un abbraccio Silvio

tu as raison, un endroit qu'il ne faut pas changer, lui laisser son calme, son aspect vierge et sauvage. Trop de souvenirs disparaissent parce que l'on chage trop vite les endroits.
Une photo très soignée avec un temps de pose vraiment bien déterminé.
dkeus31 (27733) 2012-02-20 10:45
a fine image, the lower shutter speed gives a good texture to the sea
Kielia (21597) 2012-02-22 2:41
your new toy works very well. This is a beautiful impression of this well known place with a very interesting perspective. Excellent photo work! The colors are really wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
Angshu (52966) 2012-02-22 4:27
Hello dear Lisa
A type of picture I long to take...slow shutter speed on a beach where the water gently laps up to the shore creating a fine silk like texture & a dreamy effect. This is really beautiful, more so because of the drem like blue tones. Beautiful!
paololg (31446) 2012-02-26 13:40
Ciao dolce Diavolina,
complimenti per il nuovo giocattolo, hai fatto una ottima scelta. L'importante, però, come dice il titolo della foto, è che TU non cambi il tuo prezioso e unico stile fotografico. Per fare capolavori come questo, non è questione solamente di macchina fotografica, bisogna essere bravi ed avere tanta esperienza, come ce l'hai tu. Complimenti!
Ciao, buona settimana dal tuo Generale Monello!!! ;-)
