    a lovely shot, I really like the way the sun's rays sparkle on the water and the beautiful soft colours of the clouds

    Well seen and well shot. I love the colors and the exposure was nice. My only nit and it is very slight, is the three birds flying. They are quite small and hard to see for sure that is what they are. The one in the sky is close but the two in the water look as possible debri.

    I usually hold my breath when opening shots labelled: sunrise, sunset or dusk, because they are most often boring. However, in this case, IMO, the image is quite striking and lovely...

    Excellent shot! First I thought those on the left lower part boats at a marina until I saw rest of them on the big rocks! The on in the middle looks like an aircraft carrier!

    One issue I see is the dark upper right corner. If that is vignietting, it easily fixed. Otherwise, a great shot!

    Re: Muriwai Dusk

    Thanks for the comments. The top right is too dark. I'll sort that out. It's not vignetting - just the way the shot came out. I wondered whether I should clone all the birds out or not. Because this type of shot combines lowish light, different areas of exposure within the shot and motion (waves and birds), it needed to be taken at a higher iso than I'd normally use. I would have ideally liked to freeze the birds, but that would have meant pushing the ISO out to 1600 plus. It was taken with a 3 stop reverse GND filter (Singh Ray) and is a composite of 3 shots (one for the birds in the foreground, one for the cliffs and sea and one for the sunset).
