Starfish by photodan88 Starfish by photodan88
Blackpool: another photoshoot along blackpool beach, just next to central pier.

Bought the starfish from up on the pier... and the amount of people that asked me if it had washed up while i was photographing it on the beach was unbelievable, lol.

thanks,
Dan

I would never have believed that this was taken in Blackpool. It's beautiful. The perspective and the colours in the sky just draw me into the horizon. Amazing

Amazing picture! I really mean it, this is one of the best photos I've ever seen.
I really feel like I'm just lying on the sand and watching the sunset, and I can pick up the starfish.

love the picture, a few questions though...

Is the DoF natural, or ps'd? If ps'd how did you do it?

Also, was this one exposure, or several merged?

Sorry to be nosy, but I love to hear the story behind great art's creation.

:iconphotodan88:

thanks,...
the DOF is mainly natural, i added a small amount of zoom motion blur to the sky to give a greater drawing in effect and a little blur over the top to soften... didnt really change the DOF that much... mainly done in camera.
the exposure of the shot is controlled in photoshop more, think that i lighten the sky and starfish after the overall levels, but I used a grad grey Cokin filter to help with the exposure when taking the shot.

Alright, solid. I feel kinda dumb now, because seeing your other stuff I could've guessed you used analogue exposure compensation.

Thank you for the information!
