  #227 Circle/s, Sphere/s, Round
Entry 16 of 23
   
 
shorebreak       ©2020 rd52
Canon EOS 7D       16th place, 39 points
1/1250s, f10, ISO 320, 400mm, Shutter Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: In Affinity photo processed the raw file, added clarity filter, curves to increase contrast, increased saturation and vibrance. Once 'developed' used the smudge brush to tone down some of the white reflective dots. Also used the smudge filter to get rid of some of the spray in the foreground. Cropped and saved as a jpeg for the challenge.       Extra Info: A circle that appeared for a split second before disappearing onto the sand.

    Thanks to all for the suggestions,
Mepo, I'll look into the topaz app. After your suggestion I treated the picture using NIK sharpen for display, it made for a much stronger image.
Thanks to all for the comments.

    This was my #2 but I voted on a laptop as we were travelling at the time. It looked a lot sharper in a smaller image. I still like it a lot but would loved to have seen it sharper. Topaz gigapixel would turn this into a sharp image easily. I've been blowing up some of my shots to poster size with excellent definition.

    An unexpected place to look for something round - good idea.

    Great photograph. The tube is an interesting interpretation of the theme.

    The light is not so great for bringing out the interior of the curl. The other thing is the sharpness is not there. I don't think it's the motion because the shutter speed should freeze that, so maybe focus is the issue.
