Image 5 - Garrapata Beach

Garrapata Beach

Pro Critique
A very dramatic scene along the beautiful Big Sur coast, this shot is slightly over-enhanced. A better time of day might have helped the natural colors and reduced the need for intensifying and making the somewhat overdone color adjustments. We would also like to see this image cropped into more of a panorama composition. The rock in the lower-left corner isn’t helping the shot and the thin sliver of too-blue sky above the cloud can easily be cropped out. The result would be a stronger image that gets at the core of the scene.
