been trying to get some sunrise shots , used 4 layers on this one to try and get a large dof and play with the colours a bit , sea was quite rough but these rock pools were sheltered giving a bit of contrast to the shot , freezing cold morning but really enjoyed getting this shot , cheers for taking a look , kel

Your efforts have paid off with this image,Kel!
The use of multi-layers is a good idea to get as much dof as possible.
It's inspiring me to have a go at this technique - there's so much to learn and think about with this photography lark!
Keeps the brain active and that's a good thing!
Great picture!

This one has really nailed the DoF! I briefly saw the other seaside ones last night when I was showing Josie your brilliant award-winning oil & water image. They looked to be too soft by the lighthouse and I was going to go back and comment about it this morning. No need now as you have solved the problem! No visible joins in the layers either which is important. I find this technique much easier when it's a body of water in the FG or at least distinct layers to an image. You have great effect from the sun and you have controlled the flare really well. WIth 4 layers your could have gone down to 11mm focal length for maximum image quality I guess but then the star burst effect would not have worked so well. The dark glistening FG rocks look like lumps of coal and only the closest elements of them are out of focus which is not at all distracting. Although the sun and the lighthouse are very close to the frame edges (which wouldn't work if they were single elements) the pair of them do seem to balance each other. Looks like you are really getting the 6D sensor to work for you, all you need is the 17-40 and 24-70 lenses we were discussing to complete your kit, if you are brave enough to brush the spiders of your wallet!!!

Oops Kel, I meant f/11 aperture not focal length! Must have been too early in the morning! Wink
