Nereides       ©2013 Jade O.
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       6th place, 100 points
1/639s, f8, ISO 80, 420mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Duplicate layer, adjust brightness, and cut to control light and shadow, flatten, denoise, crop, resize, sharpen.       Extra Info: In Greek mythology, nereides were fifty Haliad Nymphs or goddesses of the sea. They were the patrons of sailors and fishermen, who came to the aid of men in distress, and goddesses who had in their care the sea's rich bounty.

The Nereid Thetis was their unofficial leader, and Amphitrite was the queen of the sea. Together with the Tritones they formed the retinue of Poseidon.

The Nereides were depicted in ancient art as beautiful young maidens, sometimes running with small dolphins or fish in their hands, or else riding on the back of dolphins, hippokampoi (fish-tailed horses) and other sea creatures.

    Nice stop action and a lovely subject. Good finish. But, it's not shot at 1 second!!

    Thanks for all your votes and comments.

mrsawyer, actually the face is free from any light and shadow work; that is just the natural exposure (could have used three more points!!! ( :

    Great timing on this one! I love the lighting and clarity of the image. There seems to be a problem with the post-processing around the shadowed edges of the face though.

    Mepo You hit on a viable solution which I hadn't thought of. I would have to adjust the lighting in PP but it would work.

Lo She was having fun and the capture is candid.

babysitter I felt with the hair the image was slightly right of centre but you are not the only one who suggested she would look better position further right.

Franz If I can't be good I can at least be informative ;-) She just invoked the image of a mythological Greek sea nymph.

fc It was surprisingly difficult to bring home the real atmosphere; maybe you need the sea air and sound of waves to do that. Glad you liked the extra info.

    I would like this better if the main figure was on the 2/3 position but I can see why you would not want to crop away any of that gorgeous surf on the right. I think I would have cloned it to the left side and cropped more off the right. Good capture, full of life and certainly right on theme. In my favourites.

    The whole photo is alive with movement and colour. The young lady is a perfect water goddess.

    Lovely photo . I think I would have preferred the subject a bit to the right.
