Hillaby by Bus

The sea spray on the east coast of the island can sometimes make it difficult to get a sharp image. On this day it was really kicking up. I had to wipe my lens after each shot, and after a few wipes I needed to use a new cloth. When I got home I liked the image but it was too soft for what I envisioned so I added a little grain and went for a more painterly look. I had some interesting rocks in the foreground so I shot at f/16 but I ended cropping them out. I might try this composition again on a clearer day.
