Solitary Presence

Photo By Mon Corpuz
Pro Critique
This ethereal image shows what using a very long exposure can do at the edge of the sea. By choosing a slow shutter speed all texture is removed from the water and the foreground rock stands as the main feature in the photograph. Notice the rule of thirds composition. Had the rock been positioned more in the center of the frame the shot would be much less interesting. Slightly less overall exposure might have helped the highlights in the sky from being blown out and might also have helped add a little more color saturation.


Lightroom 2 Tip
Gain Perspective With Before/After View
When applying adjustments to your images using the various controls in the Develop module, it’s easy to lose sight of how far you've taken the image. To get a better perspective on the adjustments you've applied and make a more informed decision about what adjustments you might want to change or add to achieve the final result, use the Before/After view. In the Develop module, click the downward-pointing triangle next to the Before/After view button below the preview image. You can choose from options to have the before and after versions displayed to the left and right or top and bottom, and also choose whether you want to see the full version of both images or to see a single image split between the before and after versions. You also can use the three Before/After buttons to apply the adjustments from the before version to the after version, or vice versa, or to swap the two versions.
