Sunrise Eastbourne

By gary_carter
Taken yesterday morning. I do not get up this early but was tempted by two friends for a photographic day, starting in Eastbourne.

I love the light, pastel colours and sense of calm.

Great composition, I like this shot a lot, have uploaded a mod where I have only add a little touch of yellow filter to increase the sunset feel of the shot, just a personal thing.

Can you provide the exif detail Gary, - it will help with feedback.

Lots of halos around the top of the building, - perhaps some post processing work?

Slight rotation needed to level the sea.

Everything that Willie said... From the EXIF data (thank you!), there was no need for such a small aperture. Everything's a decent distance away, so f/8 or even f/5.6 would have been fine, allowing a higher shutter speed and lower ISO.

I really wanted to crop this a bit - the sky is lovely, but in your original, the pier head is rather central. I want to put it on a third! This isn't a magic answer, but it usually works, if you don't have a more definite and artistically-justified composition in mind. A sensible default!

The haloes are very noticeable - they suggest some sort of processing, and very possibly a preset effect. If you can get control of your effects, you can often avoid the 'collateral damage' that the presets give.

A really lovely morning - it would be good to see an unprocessed original posted as your own mod - that might give us some insight into the processing issues.

At first sight, a nice shot, but there are huge artefacts round the building. Possibly due to over compression and with some over sharpening. They are very obvious.

I wonder why you used f22. Not a good idea, even with a fixed focal length lens. You are asking for diffraction from the tiny hole in the kens which does nothing for quality. F8 would do.
