Taken in 2009 and originally dismissed due to bad exposure whilst shooting directly into the sun, I was fortunate enough to have had the foresight to be shooting in RAW. This meant that with the knowledge gained subsequently regarding RAW conversion I was, on reopening the file today, able to retrieve quite successfully the scene that I had witnessed on that night.

"Thank Heavens for Raw?", years ago this would have ended up in the trash. A rather nice lowlight coastal image, expertly salvaged, and worthy of many admiring comments.

That water movement accentuated by the light really pulls the viewer into the image Paul.
