Weedy Sunrise

By almiles  
St Mary's at Whitley Bay. I dunno, you make all the effort to get up early on holiday to shoot this landmark and whaddya get...? Clear skies and a low tide! Oh well, I'll just have to try again next time I'm down to see the family Smile Comp feels a bit unbalanced but I wanted some sort of water to break up the FG and most of that was out at sea Smile

It's a lovely sunrise Alan, I think I agree with you about balance, maybe you could break the rules and put the horizon just a tadge above the centre line, which may add to the balance in this case. The lovely pastel sky and the sun just making an appearance really give this a glorious feeling.
I tend to agree with Marktc . I would mess about with position the horizon , asit is it still appeals to me great capture

Its a very good shot Al but I think you nailed it, tide in would have been an improvement. However it is still very nice, lovely pastel colours, strong lines and good point of interest.

Nice shot Al think you have made the most from what we had to play with , natural looking shot with nice foreground interest

I love the foreground, more to take in and absorb and enjoy in this top photograph.

The sky is quite bland so the higher horizon works for me. The lighthouse is well placed and I like the foreground 'weed and the light on the lead-in causeway. The mass of dark rocks is the main problem. They are very 'heavy' and dominate the image but giving little detail.

I love the strong lines and that wee bit of light hitting the sea wall Grin

Cheers Herman, Mark, Andy, Andy Kel, Kathryn, Dave, Andy and Rod. You all have some good points to make thanks. I think the dark rocks are a problem. I have a few others from this trip to fiddle with so will see if anything else worth posting. It certainly was a learning experience and I look forward to returning, this time I'll consult a tide chart as well as the weather forecast! LOL

I think the comp is spot on Al for this take, I think I would have made the lighthouse central on the horizon so losing the rising sun and waited another 5/10 mins so it gave a chance for the sun to shed a bit of light on the rocks,love it though and looks like it has bags of potential with the right conditions

You are a bit further away from home here, Alan: whilst conditions may not have been all you'd wished for you still for a pretty good shot, compositionally ideal.
