Stuff on big websites gets shoved off the home page really quickly if it isn't the kind of thing that draws in the masses. So I've made a note of this audio slide show on the BBC site before I forget about it as I never tire of listening to great practitioners talking about their thought processes. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-21188741
It's been very windy round here the last couple of days, so much so that I was struggling to stay upright, let alone hold the camera steady for this shot yesterday. No doubt if I had been using a DLSR shooting 9 frames a second I'd have got more than one reasonable picture form eight attempts. As it was I had only taken the X10 out with me as I was on my way to the supermarket, taking a detour along the front to see the rare high tide when I saw the spray coming over the sea wall. The breaking spray was unpredictable so I prefocused and kept my finger on the shutter release trying to time each shot. Eight frames was all I could bear to take before getting too cold with the wind-chill!
For interest's sake, here's the picture before processing. All it took was a crop to 3:2 to improve the composition by cutting out wasted space in the foreground, a quick adjustment to the tone curve and clarity plus a graduated filter over the sky. All done to boost the contrast to highlight the spray and the zig-zag lines. I got lucky with the shot having the car where it is (and a harmonious colour) when the spray came up and a couple of gulls in flight. It's almost as if the camera knew I was seriously considering selling it and pulled this one out of the bag to confound me!
