North Cottesloe has to be one of the best and most interesting metro beaches to shoot, its always so much fun being down there.   In this shot I tried following the movement of the wave whilst also getting some detail in the shot and I’m pretty happy with the result.

To get this shot I held the shutter open for about 2secs and then panned from right to left to capture the waves movement I did that for about 1.5secs and then for the last .5sec just kept the camera still so that the camera would record some of the detail and not totally blur it all.  I’ve being trying to work on a compromise between totally blurred and totally sharp so that the viewer focuses on the movement and emotion within the photo but can still see where the photo was taken.

I think this photo manages to achieve that.

Hope you enjoy it,
