Green Tide Pool on Seaside Cliff with North Atlantic Ocean Horizon, Nahant Massachusetts USA
This was a completely recreational shot. We were down enjoying the sea cliffs on the best Sunday in months, sunny and warm. This was a nice flat spot on the cliff and there was a green tide pool, so it was a no brainer. This is a single image straight out of the camera just with punched up color. A 90 deg angle was perfect for my 100 x 100mm circular polarizer, so I was able to stack a grad ND with only the depth of the standard LEE holder. This allowed me to shoot through three filters at 16mm with barely any vignetting, and I have found that the square circular polarizer typically always works the best at 90 degree rotations anyways.
