It's about time I posted some pictures. I just took this 15-20 minutes ago. I know, it's a lot of pictures. Sorry! :p

Beautiful Metro, what settings did you use for that shot? Love how the Sea rolls over the stones near the front of the shot.

Im going on a guess here and saying you use a cokin purple shaded sky filter and a wide aperture for the sea mist effect

You got a bigger image of that like widescreen or something, that would look epic as a desktop background on my laptop

I shot at sunset to get the color in the sky and used a 2 stop Lee soft GND and a circular polarizer. I won't touch the Cokin filters because I think they are garbage. I did add a little color to the sky because I didn't get the cast that I wanted, but I have since gone in and softened the saturation because I didn't think it looked too natural.

In terms of tech specs, it was shot at f/22 with a shutter of 1/6 of a second. If you want to capture water, I have found that a shutter speed of 1/8 to 2 seconds is great at capturing the movement, however once you get to 1 second you start to lose the detail but keep the movement. Also shot at 18mm perched on a rock away from the sand since the water was pretty much right at my feet and slowly creeping higher since the tide was starting to come in.

Here's an edit to show you some of the progress I have made from the other:

In terms of high res, I don't make high res available because it makes it easier to steal artwork and print it for personal use. Nothing against you, just a general principle with stuff that has happened in the past.

metro: That's a beautiful shot. Has it snowed yet in Beaverton?

crazzy88ss: Great shots. You're right, the expressions the players give are "intense". I can't say I haven't made a face like that while dunking. The guy in blue (pictures 4 & 5) is hilarious.

It doesn't really snow much here at all. We tend to get freezing rain and ice storms more than anything in this area which I think is worse, especially with the idiots on the road. In my home town, we do get snow but generally it's not too bad. There were a couple years where we had a constant 4 feet in our front yard. One winter when I lived in Southern Oregon, we had almost 10 feet in our front yard. The porch sat about 15 feet high so we jumped off the porch into the snow until it got packed enough for it to hurt on impact. It was fun as hell. We also built a HUGE snow cave with the snow that had been plowed since we had about a 20 foot tower along the road in our backyard on the road. It was such a fun winter that year. I'm so glad I was a kid back then.

Are you using one flash with a green gel, because i see a slight green tint on one side of the players?!

Could be colour cast from ambient lighting - fluorescents cycle into the green spectrum on a 50/60hz frequency.

Great shots, but the first has a little too much wrap for my taste. I am a bit of a detail freak, but the foreground blends nicely with the background. What did you use for light in both images?

I have two flashes with green gels on each to balance for the fluorescents in the room. I don't know what I did this game, but it's showing up on the players a little bit :( Normally you can't tell.

Yeah was going to say because in your other shots you cannot tell, maybe they are set at more powerful flash?! so its shown up more?

no, they stay at 1/4. I think it was just the angles.

7 minute exposure 1 hour after sunset, 2 stop gnd used to hold back city lights.

It's really relaxing to sit on a park bench, anchor a weight to the tripod, lock the shutter cable, and just watch the city move. I haven't done it in a while and it was time. I just wish I could have caught the sunset we had a few days ago. Darn.
