Ventura Beach Rocks. by awesome43 Ventura Beach Rocks. by awesome43
I took this photo at Ventura Beach in California. The rock formations there are very unusual. It is very close to the water and you can actually walk around there quite freely.

Thank you to the following groups for featuring Ventura Beach Rocks. It is very much appreciated. You are awesome. :hug:

Nice job! Lovely photo, it definitely stands out from the rest - the reason why I gave 4.5 on vision and impact.

I'm decent at photography, not the best, but I know some stuff. Personally, I would've tilted the camera and tried to get the horizon in the view, as this kinda looks down on the setting, so it's hard to 'be there'. Gave a 3.5 on technique, sorry :(
Maybe you could've just lied down so you're seeing the ground, the rocks and the horizon. That would've been better.

A good thing about the photo is, though, the calmness of the place. I can only assume from this picture that there isn't any annoying noises, screaming kids, or giant waves, it feels so peaceful.


All in all, this photo is excellent. On a canvas or in a frame on a wall, 30"x50" at least, it would be amazing :D
Nice work, keep it up and best wishes for the future :)

Ok, at first I'd love to say this is a very gorgeous photo. The water is so blue! I like how the waves are crashing into the rocks, it just makes it beautiful. The impact is awesome. The vision- The vision is super creative. Now, the texture. It's terrific! The grass, the rocks, and the waves. So beautiful! You should take a lot of photos of these wonderfully beautiful photos. How I love photos similar to these! I'm going to fave this awesome photo. Great job, keep up the lovely work! One of the loveliest ive ever seen! Good Bye!

I can't help myself for laughing. I look at your avatar doing flips and you tell me about calmness in my photo. That is really cool. I love your avatar it is really neat. All kidding aside you are right it is a very calm place to go to and one of my favorites. It is a place we go to when we want to relax and experience the beauty and feel of nature. I love to listen to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks and smell the salt air. Thank you very much for commenting. I am happy you like my photo. :iconheart4uplz:

Ha, yeah, I  guess there is a contrast, and this avatar gets a lot of attention; I found it here on deviantart while going through a lot of others, but make no mistake, I like calm things a lot!!!!:D
But you're so lucky that you can go to such a place whenever you want to; if it were up to me, I'd love to go to places like that too, but I listen to sound of waves crashing on YouTube; it's pretty nice!:) And I can imagine going to those places for you helps with creativity!!!:)

Yes going to places this beautiful and calm inspire me. It is quite a distance from my house what we call a day trip but usually stay the night. It is costly to do so we do not go as often as I would like LOL Still love the great avatar. :nod:

Well the money is for gas and lodging and meals to and from there to home. It is free to park there at this location and walk around.. Up and down the California Coast there are parking lots near the beach that charge ten dollars per day or more or for a few hours depending on the location. Hopefully they will not start charging for this location.  Have a great day as well my friend. :iconhug1plz:

angelichope Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2013
Oh, okay I get it.:) That's also pretty much why we don't go places often because of gas prices, but this October, I want to make plans for me and my family to go up to New England to see the Fall foliage; we live in the south right now; we don't really get to experience seasons except for Summer really, and Autumn is my favorite season.

Thank you, and take more good pictures!:)

Thank you very much. The water is very shallow there maybe that is the reason for that particular fade you are referring to. I am pleased you like it.

You did good at capturing the color of the water an rocks, and the white of the foaming water does add some interest to this photo, but with that said, I'm not finding the whole thing all that interesting or expressive.
Technical aspects of the shot are good, but the artistic side of it leaves me wanting.

awesome43 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012
Thank you for your comments. I am happy to know that you like some aspects of it. Not sure about the artistic side issues. The reason I chose this location was because of the shapes and unusual grouping of the rocks and of course the beautiful ocean. I do appreciate your critique.

It always is nice there. What I like is that you can walk down to where the rocks are and sit on them and dangle your feel in the water. I love going there it is very near my other spot California Coast only a few miles apart.
