    Bandon Beach is one of my favorite places along the Pacific Coast. This was done on Fuji Velvia 50 so the blacks are blocked up a bit.

    Hey Doug, this is my favorite beach in Oregon! I like how you captured the water in this. Shooting into the sun is not an easy task, I think you did pretty good at making it feel like we are looking into it.

    I agree with Jim. Not an easy shot to make. Nice composition with a great spectrum of color

    Pretty nice - I often position myself so the sun is just behind one of the sea stacks to avoid the blowouts. Nice reflections.

    I definitely thought about that with this image, Alan but decided to try the sunburst instead. I didn't know if it would work so I bracketed a lot. I did have to darken the sky a bit when I got everything else in balance.
