The Midas Touch

By BillyGoatGruff  
Hi peeps!

This was a few minutes before "Fun at Sundown" and before I'd got really irate about the three oafs spoiling my frame!
Still, it is their country, and I was only visiting!! Smile

A two exposure blend to control the huge contrast from shooting straight at the sun, despite the strong grad. A bit of burn out was inevitable, but within tolerable limits I think.

Thanks for looking.

Pretty busy this evening, so I'll catch up when I can.

Cheers all,

a real cracker Bill, very well handled, and if there is any burn out for shots like this the areas that are burnt out don't tend to hold much detail anyway.

Aye - that's a smasher Bill. Sun sinking into haze can be a bugger to expose for, even with strong grands and bracketing - but you've done a fine job here.

Great shot Bill.
It sure is a great bit of coastline here.

An absolute corker, the exposure has been extremely well handled. Sunrises/sunsets are a nightmare these days unless you are good at HDR!
