Hope by DMMDesign Hope by DMMDesign
Taken at an unnamed beach on the northeast shore of Lake Tahoe. This was during a tremendous windstorm where I took a chance the clouds would break up enough to display a nice sunset. What I got instead was a shrouded peek of what it looks like on the other side. The waves were pounding and the water was being picked up off the lake and spraying me. I spent the first half hour I was there wiping and defogging my lens. 450 second exposure 10 stop B+W neutral density filter at F11 and 100 iso, and composed with a prayer.

I named it "Hope" because despite the chaotic conditions that were present, you can a see break in the storm - sort of a "light at the end of the tunnel" - in this case, very colorful light, like seeing a rainbow at the end of a thunderstorm. It tells us that tomorrow is going to be a better day - that in all this chaos there is still Hope.

This stunning example of an Image is one of the best photographs I have ever seen.
The extremely detailed Stones match perfectly to the dark, blue sea and the colours of the sky.
The sky is simply awesome, the coulours are great, and gives it a wonderful touch.
The very long exposure adds to the terrifying mood, and makes it, together with the sky kind of surreal.

So all in all, this is, in my opinion, an incredible image, wonderfully composed, great depth of field, and a great colour range :)
This is my opinion, and if you do not agree, please tell ;)
