    Coffs Harbour at Dawn

    This shot was taken a little before sunrise at a beach on the north coast of NSW. I used a 3 stop GND filter for this with settings as follows :- shutter 3.2 sec, aperture f/11, ISO 100. You might think that focus was set on the foreground but it was actually set on the mountain in the centre of shot.

    The clouds weren't very co-operative but I thought the scene had a slight dreaminess that might appeal. I'd love to hear what you think.

    Pls click on image for best viewing in Lightbox.

    Very nice muted image. Glad to see that you didn't go overboard with the sunrise colors and allowed them to transition nicely with the bluish/purplish tones of the sky and clouds.

    I'm absolutely amazed at the sharpness of the grass considering the shutter speed. There had to have been absolutely no wind.

    You are right. It is a very dreamy image and the colors are beautiful. I like that you have the grass in the corner. Very nice!
