“Classic summer scene at Otama beach, this looks terrific as a large triptych where the scene splits into beach, pohutukawa & sea. It's difficult to appreciate the detail on this website, but this image is capable of extreme enlargement, the original file measured 4.5 metres wide @ 300DPI! A difficult scene to capture & process as the depth of field with the 210mm lens is minimal (hence f32 & ISO 800), the waves were constantly moving as I shot a total of 21 overlapping frames. Great Barrier island lies top right, under the cloud."
