Photographer's Note

Dickinson Bay beach, Antigua

This beach is actually one of the busier one's on Antigua, but I managed to find a time in the early morning when no one was swimming/sailing.

I used a polariser to cut down on reflections and darken the sky, and Velvia film for increased saturation. I also found that the water only looked this colour when the sun was behind or slightly to the side of me. In the afternoon this viewpoint faces into the sun, and when it does the sea is a dull colour by comparison.

Wish I was there now!

All feedback welcome.


p.s hi! sorry if you're hoping for a bigger pic. I always upload to the web at a maximum 550 pixels on the long side, and always with my contact details (a web url) on them. I know others post bigger here on TE, but I hope you can respect this small control I put on my shots on the web, and I hope you still enjoy the pic, and I look forward to ANY feedback you can give about the picture.

Thanks, I look forward to reading your critique.
