Looking back!! / by Alex Gesse

As I was writing the first entry for my new blog I was searching my computer for pictures taken with my Canon T3i. Back then I was still using Apple's Aperture to organize and post process my images and I found this picture. I've never posted or shared with anyone but it's a great looking photo, I really like how it came out and it's nice to know I did "ok" when I was just starting and experimenting with my gear.

This photo was taken at the Coral Cove Park in Palm Beach County. I took with me my recently bought camera still with my Canon kit lens, a Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. On top of that I had just purchased my tripod, I went with a Manfrotto 190XPROB 3 and Manfrotto 496RC2 Ball Head. The idea was to capture some gentle water motion washing up the rocks during sunset. I didn't use any filters and I was still shooting JPEGS at the time. I took several shots from different angles trying out different settings and this one is one of my favorites.
