Where The River Meets The Sea

“A river seems a magic thing. A magic, moving, living part of the very earth itself.”

Adding life to your image… if you hold your thumb over the gull in the above image
you will still have a decent scene. However, by making sure to get the gull in the image
adds a sense of life and action, as well as defining scale, which is so important for the 
viewer in order to get the “feel” of place. Once you have mastered your skills with camera and software, it’s the little things that matter and will set you apart from the crowd. I also did not go for a long exposure, which to me, is highly overused these days, because I wanted to show the movement and flow of the stream, which again, tends to add life to the scene. 

Enjoy,
Tom
