Miracle Sunrise

It’s a miracle that these two images were taken at all, after waking up late, dashing down to the harbour, struggling with my tripod in gloves, discarding & dropping my gloves in the water then I was all set to go, turned on the camera and no memory card message on the screen, dam, I had left it in the card reader, not to worry I had a spare, more fumbling, finally I was ready for the sunrise then two shots later battery depleted, no spare battery and no spare camera still at home having just returned from repair.

Number 2 for me, the extra light brings the boat out of the gloom.

Which lens did you use?

edit; tried lifting the colours in PSE6 and not sure about it can add mod to your topic if its OK with you?

Sounds like any one of my outings.

These are good. You've managed to get a lot of detail in #2.

Thanks Emily, I could cope with more disastrous outings like that if this is the result

The sky from #1 with the foreground of #2 (without the colour cast on the snow) would make it a real winner. Now do your own magic.
Best regards,

Sounds like the Wizard has thrown down the gauntlet I had better pull my finger out and have a go.

But I'm the only photographer who leaves his memory card in the reader, except I never have a spare.

Lovely photos, well worth the effort of getting up early. (Can't do that, either!)

Regards,

Andrew

I think you've lost a bit of the atmosphere from the first version but the snow is snappier.

And still as some purple colour cast.

Now we all know what "technoblurb" means!

As someone already said, I'd take number one sky with number two ground.

Graham,

My take, FWIW:




I've tried to implement the combination of sky and ground as discussed above - not sure if it really matches that exactly though.

I prefer #2 myself... cracking mood and the extra light on the snow really helps.
