3 Capes Highway

This is looking back south toward Cape Kiwanda. It's my personal favorite photograph from the trip. I slightly desaturated to colors (can't believe I did that). I printed it on Hahnemuhle Fine Art Smooth paper. It's now up in our living room.

It's a beautiful view and the desaturation works to enhance the sea mist.

This deserted beach so drives far, on the horizon ;
The big spaces give a vision of the freedom.

This is spectacular! Perfection, really. I MUCH prefer this slight desaturation to HDR -- thousands times more effective. I can imagine how gorgeous this printed out. Excellent work, Jack.

28 Sep 2010 3:28pm

@Diane: I rarely use HDR for anything other than capturing a wide exposure range.

LauraS from Chico, United States

Hmm, I'm surprised you chose a vertical format, rather than extend the horizon...

A great composition that captures a lot of detail and texture. Great choice for DoF as well. I love how the terrain comes in at an angle while the horizon remains level.
