Award Shortlist   


By Bee76
Couldn't come up with a name that I'm happy with.

I was shooting into where the sun would rise then stopped when it crested as I never seem to completely avoid flare and it's a pig to edit out. I decided to give it a go with a small aperture and was pleasantly surprised with the result. An early start but as you can see it was a gorgeous morning and a real pleasure to witness. Definitely my favourite image I've produced to date I think.

Manually blended two exposures using a Lee 1.2 ND Grad and luminosity masks in Photoshop.

As always, thanks for your feedback on my last upload and have a good evening.

Thanks Jules. It's between the Old Felixstowe Road and the A14 and between Keepers Cottages and Levington Lane. The sun is rising over the A14.
