crescent bay island

This photograph is a bit of an experiment.  Rather than use high dynamic range techniques which are all the rage today, I let the light areas go to white for a high-key effect.  The resulting image has the darks connected in a large zig-zag through the scene.

The island is just offshore from Salt Creek County Park west of Port Angeles.

I think the experiment was a success!

Thanks, Elsbeth. I exposed this photo for shadow detail and I tended to think of it as a failed image because of the washed out highlights. But when I looked at it later, I liked the effect and composition, so decided to work with it.

Glad you did!
