Happy Hour by tourofnature Happy Hour by tourofnature
Another shot taken from the Caribbean beaches of Mexico. I wanted to offset the blurred motion of the waves with the stark contrast of the rocky shoreline.

Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Canon 5D. 17-40 L. CPL. 2HS GND filter.

The same sunset:

exposure time seems slightly awkward, I like the intent to create a strong blur in the ocean but the amount of blur is not strong enough to be successful.

This is the exposure I was after, I wanted the foreground water to be blurred, juxtaposed against the rocks, but I also wanted the cresting waves to be visible in the middle ground to give some interest to lead back to the far shoreline/sky. Any longer of an exposure and the waves in the middle ground would have been washed out and flat.

I appreciate your critique, its nice to hear suggestions.
