Bathing in a sea of jewels

Bathing in a sea of jewels

Pathos, Cyprus

The glinting sea looked like flashlights in a crowd. I had several goes at capturing this with different apertures. Narrow enough to get the star shapes, wide enough to get no movement on the figures - all at low iso to reduce noise. A tricky balance but all part of the fun of photography.

Beautiful, Steve! The stars in the water imitate the sun quite well, and the silhouetted figures are an added bonus. V.
