[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot of Terrigal Beach - Just as the sun hits the horizon. I tried to capture the scene as I saw it that morning, it was pretty amazing and worth getting up at 4am for. I used a Neutral Density ND8 soft Graduated filter on the lens which helps to balance the exposure of the sky. I set the camera to low in camera saturation, contrast and sharpening as I prefer to do this in PP.

PP Work: Seperate curves on sky and on water, saturation adjustment and USM on only parts of the image, removed where not necessary.

Hello Bill,

What a great image to bid 2006 goodbye, and hello to 2007...


Pablo -


Hello Bill,

Excllent composed and capture colorful photo nicely done

TFS kyle

Splendide image, belles couleurs, jolie profondeur


Great sunrise shot, I like the way the sweeping motion of the sea seems to mirror the direction the light is taking in the sky. Lovely pastel colours and composition make this shot.


Hi Bill. An excellent capture. Lovely softer colours and a good POV. I was out and about at 5am because the sky showed some promise but the colourful sunrise did not eventuate. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ' Swirling Clouds’

Hey again Bill

Another nice shot. I'm really enjoying your recent series from Terrigal. Nice colors at work here. The capture of the receding/approaching water is great. Keep up the good work.
