[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
7 Bridges rd - launch at 4:00am into the inky black of Sheepshead Creek - a new moon making it hard to read land from water - as I plow the prow of the boat up on to the sod bank - I remind myself the tide is incoming and I drive the spike deep - gulls and the distant ocean's roar is my only company - it's nautical twilight as I approach the acres of tidal polls - I pause to realize I'm the only person on the earth to see this and how grateful I am

Hi Ernest,
A beautiful shot capturing that early morning tranquility very well. You could have improved the composition by following the rule of 1/3, that is lift the horizon up a bit.

Hi Ernest,
This image has a great dynamic range and detail, and of course beauty.

Hi Ernest,
Would love to see some critique from you on this site. I am sure many including me could learn from your skills.
Great photo with a really odd cloud cover. Or is it altered or compromised by the downsizing for TL.

I do like this one although take care with your horizon and level.
Dreamy blues catch the imagination.
