While many people were enjoying a sleep in on Moday, 16 June, which was Youth Day others were up bright and early to go fishing from New Brighton Pier.

  3. If it was me, and it isn't me, I would have tried to get a faint hint of detail in the foreground on the image showing. You can click on it and enlarge it and there is the hint of detail I am talking about. I hope a lot of people click on it so they can see there are things there.

    I would say it is one of the best sunsets I have seen today.

  18. Hi SAM,

    This is a very good photo! An interesting sky, fore- and middle ground, good reflections, good exposure. Very nice.

    Since you're into photography may I suggest that you use a split grad neutral density filter the next time? That will balance the contrast between the sky and the foreground to allow more foreground detail to be shown. Or, expose for the highlights, and another for the shadows (you've got to use a tripod and cable release, though) and sandwich them in Photoshop.

    I've got some tips specifically about this on my blog (see the June 11 post).

  21. Hopefully, the early risers were rewarded with fish as well as a beautiful sunrise. That pier makes a nice detail in the scene.
