Watchful Dawn

By iancrowson  
A watch tower on Miami Beach at dawn.
The aim of the photo was to capture one of the many Lifeguard watch towers on the beach before it was populated by the rich and beautiful. In fact at that time I had to weave around the many homeless who sleep on The Beach.
Single exposure image, shot in RAW with a few tweaks in Adobe RAW.
(take 6 hours off time, 1 for DST and 5 for Miami time)
Comments and advice most welcome,
Thanks for looking,

I knew this was yours when I saw the thumbnail. Its really good; that long exposure has provided a nice warm light on the back of the Lifeguard tower. The ships anchored on the horizon a nice added touch.

Good job,

Hi, my cyber buddy! Just a wonderful image: such deep, rich colours and wonderfully sharp detail - and so glad I'm not the only one in love with sunsets and skies! It's perfect as it is - but you could try and just lighten up the front woodwork on the lifeguard tower just a tad. Only sorry I couldn't give you a vote on this one!
