Brilliant minds think alike! ;) A fabulous place. Can almost hear the ocean roar.

And it does roar :-) ... the marine mist has its special smell that I so much like. Thanks LookSee. Ever since you suggested this to me I've been using the Technique in many other photographs and the result is awesome. Thanks once more for helping to learn.

Thanks chuckrickman for your kind and encouraging words. Yes it is the power of the Ocean that I so much like and at this location it is awesome and I happen to have the fortune of living close by, some 30 minute walking

Great shot, I would have done a little edditing though (depht/highlights) but this is a matter of taste...

Could be a matter of taste, however for me your comments/suggestions are very valuable. I will look into them once I learn more and get a better editing program. Thanks

Behind The Lens

Location
Porto, Portugal, Atlantic Ocean, Felgueiras Lighthouse which stands along with the breakwater at the river mouth of River Douro and facing the Atlantic ocean very strong currents.
Time
Is was at the end of the afternoon with a rising tide
Lighting
It was sunset
Equipment
Leica ... made by Panasonic as DMC TZ18 under Leica licence with Leica sensors and Leica Lens DC Vario Elmar 1.3 . 5.9/ 4.3 - 68.8 ASPH - Power 0.1.5./24mm WIDE
Inspiration
I love the ocean, especially when it is stormy and also from my very long experience of growing live corals and marine fish and critters as well as liking very much lighthouses
Editing
I this case I just used the rule of the thirds from the original photograph that is also uploaded in viewbug and this because LookSee, a very experienced member that like me but more than me, is used to use analogue film
In my camera bag
The same as mentioned above ... my digital Leica made by Panasonic under licence of Leica. As soon as possible I will get a Leica-D-Lux-Typ-109 and then a Leica M
Feedback
Persistence, patience, learn to select the right settings and repeat until you get it right and learn and keep learning continuously
