Congratulations to Luiz Carlos Junior for winning the recent Beaches And Shorelines Assignment with the image, "Spring at Shark Fin Cove."
"I had seen a few pictures of this splendid place on the California coast over the Internet, but when I arrived there, I spent some time thinking about how I could make a good shot with an overcast sky and a composition that looked like many others,” he explains. “The answer came when I walked a little further and realized that the spring was already coming in California, with the blooming of these beautiful flowers. I composed with the flowers in the foreground, and, because of strong winds, I made another composition with the waves in the background in a long exposure shot. Bingo!"
