Headed out yesterday afternoon with fellow landscape photographer Adrian Wayte, we went and checked out North Cottesloe first, but we didn’t really see anything that really connected. So we took a drive north along the coast and eventually ended up at Burns Beach.. I’d photographed portrait sessions here before but never any landscape work. I experimented with a few different long exposures, but didn’t really find anything that worked for me.

This image is what I ended up with, not sure why it looks a little tonemapped in spots, it’s a bit strange, all I’ve done to it is adjust the vibrancy up a touch and then run my 2 sharpening actions over it. Not entirely sure about this image, definitely looking forward to heading back to Burns Beach for a dawn shoot, or maybe even a night shoot. Would love some feedback on this one.
