Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark IV
Focal Length: 35mm
Exposure: 25 sec
Note: Ivan Gomez took this photograph on the white sandy beaches of Madivaru, Maldives. I love the cold and warm tones meeting on the horizon. The white sand blending in with the water makes it appear as if we are looking into a sea of sand. The punch of color from the fruit grabs the colors from the sky and draws your attention immediately. Very nice capture.
Tip: The shutter speed (exposure) of 25 seconds allowed for the water to have the smooth, calm effect. A tripod is needed to achieve shots with longer exposures. When shooting beach scenes, shoot in a direction that sky has more depth or interest. It will give the sky and water enough contrast and add interest to your photo.
