    Default part of Piha beach



    Hello,
    It's first time to but something here, and I would like to get any advice about my photo.



    Nikon D200, Sigma 10-20mm, PL + ND4 filters.

    We were in North Island last September (across from Aus) and loved Piha Beach. The rock outcrops on the beach a made to photograph. This is a nice angle with good foreground interest. IMO Lion Rock is a bit central and there isn't much interest in the left of the photo. It also looks a bit grainy. Did you use a higher ISO? But overall a great set up and nice photo.

    Its looks pretty good to me, again I agree that it is quite grainy, whether that was intent or not is your choice. I don't actually think the grain detracts at all from the image. I would also consider cropping off some of the sky so that the eye is focussed on the rocks a little more.

    Very cool pic. Must have been hard work pushing those three boulders into place too.

    And maybe the left too, to get the 'thirds' thing going.

    ^ Ha!

    Beautiful shot, I agree that the sky could be cropped. I like photos that stray from the strict digital rectangle.
