    Moreton Bay Sunrise

    I posted some jetty shots at sunrise a couple of weeks ago but here is another shot I took that day just before sunrise. Thanks for viewing and C&C welcome.

    'Less is more' seems to be the current thinking and this lovely shot fits the bill precisely Dave although it does need a touch of clockwise rotation to get the horizon er, horizontal

    I've re-posted the image with a level horizon. Just couldn't leave it as it was.

    And thanks Bobo for your comment.

    Re: Moreton Bay Sunrise

    My thoughts, but with that much foreground, I'd like something to be there that would either direct my eye, or give my eye a resting point before entering the scene. Just seems a wide open "nothingness" and for me, it kills the luciousness of the sky and water. Next time, when composing such a shot as this, try to find a slight rise, a rock or shell or...?? that allows the eye to ease into the shot, and perhaps, at some point, ease out.

    This is fast and quite crude...but I think gets the point across...and of course, as always, it is just one person's opinion.

    Thanks for your comments Chris. I do see what you are getting at. There are not a lot of features in the shot.

    Cheers Dave
