Hi Folks,
Spent the day with steviehutch and had one of the best photography days ever!. This is my first sunrise and first seascape and I'm proud as punch with it. The large version should be worth a look.
I told Steve I wasn't going to upload anything this evening but I lied. Please let me know what you think and thanks for dropping by.
Regards,
Dave

Oh WOW .....

For me,this HAS TO BE YOUR BEST upload - absolutely fabulous composition with lots of great FG interest and detail. Exposure is spot on throughout the entire image,the darker FG contrasting perfectly with the beautiful pastel tones in the sky. For a first attempt at a sunrise/seascape it's faultless and you have a perfect right to be VERY proud of it - it's a stunner and one that I would love to have on my wall. LARGE is awesome ( a much used word on this website but THE only one to describe this shot ).
It definately gets on my shortlist,in my faves and gets my User Award.
Congratulations Dave.
Best Wishes
Jane

That's got it all, Dave. Very well done with a first attempt! I guess you'll be down on the coast a fair bit after such a super result.
