This was the pre-dawn display on Sunday morning. Not much of a sky but it was good to visit here as it's been a while. Here I have hand blended two exposures, one for the sky and water, other for the houses and cliffs. I choose to hand blend as the grads proved difficult to work with and I would have lost too much detail. I did have a go at the magic cloth method, got some reasonable results, but I think I need a little more practice with that one Wink

Thanks Phil. I was out extra early as I wanted to investigate a few different positions before settling on this one (well spotted). Will return hopefully to a sky with a few clouds about Wink

Not all Ollie I appreciate your honesty. The sharpening is very minimal so it's probably down to my hand blending technique as I have little experience with this. I think I've been too harsh with the brush settings when bringing in the sky and rushed it a little. Live and learn Wink
