Morning Glory

By ljmp      
This was taken downstream from Padstow towards Stepper point. The land on the other side is Daymer Bay. My aims were twofold: to capture an interesting sunrise and also to capture the water movement without losing too much texture: not easy when the waves were surging across the rocks at different speeds! This was 1/4 sec at F/9 ISO 100 and focal length 25mm.

What do you think?

the first thing I noticed was the warm light - that's pretty well captured, sky's looking nice and fluffy too.

That's all fine

The closer areas are more debateable. Not being there it's hard to say what you could have done differently, to I bear that in mind - you may have get soaked if you'd moved in!

the rocks at the bottom are neitehr here nor there in a way, they hve good light on them, so I'd have got low down, really low, and got those in the shot more with a wide lens.

The easier one to fix would have bene the rock s to the left of the shot. Best to either get rid of these or fully include them

it they are sat on the edge of the shot like this, it looks like you were undecided when taking the shot - almost like you were sat on the fence and never made your mind up.

it's the same with trees and stuff like that.

So a lower angle and sort that rock out and I think you'll have a good one

I like the shutter speed - conveys the movement without going silky milky..

Ade's comments about the rocks are bang on - if you'd have moved to the left and fully included the main rock on the left it would also have had the effect of moving the prominent ?hill? on the horizon more away from the centre to the right, which would help balance the comp.

having said that, maybe you couldn't get any further to the left without a soaking?

Nice work anyway
