Early Sun Showing on the Cliffs at Murrays Bay

I found this image in one of my old folders and have it on my desktop right now.

It does look better in the full size - a lot of the details don't show up too clearly here on TL. But I still like it.

You can see the people putting their kayaks into the water at the beach on the left - Mairangi Bay

thanks for sharing

Hi Janice
Very beautiful composition in this amazing landscape
The soft light of early sun makes great highlights and colors
The depth of field is well managed, bravo

Hello Janice,
Beautiful colours this year! Beautiful landscape photo with excellent colours.
best wishes,

Kia ora Janice,
A well known place for me :-)excellent captured with the warm morning sun shining on the cliff. Wish I was there, this picture brings back a good feeling. A great image with excellent handling of light.
Thanks for the memory!

Kia Ora!! Ka Mate Ka Mate!! Pake Pake! Very well done Jannie! This is SUPER nice, LOVE the roll of the wave and the wonderful light captured on it! Lots of details in the surf, how nice!

Very nice picture, good processing, nice details.

Hello Janice,
Whereas I like the harmony of your composition and the landscape you present us, I'm less convinced about the purple cast in the water. It doesn't look natural to me and I'm not sure I can give it a "sense" within your photo. Could it be you pushed a HDR-treatment a little too far (at least for my eyes)? Feel free to (dis)agree ;o)
TFS & kind regards,

Hello Janice :)

Beautiful formulation of fragment of coast in very showy light
and colours near perfect sharpness.
Can see near the setting sun only such colours of water.
Pretty, admirable composition, very showy!
Splendid realization...congratulations!

With best wishes.

Hi Janice,
A lovely sun rise rays with beautiful atmosphere,the POV is nicely selected with beautiful scene of this beach and the golden touch of color tones looks amazing,superb sharpness and details,an eye pleasing shot.

Best Wishes

Hello Janice,
This is a nice one to find in the archives.
For me, when I come across a photo that's a few years old and it still has that look a bit longer factor, it means it's a good one.
The purple cast in the water is an easy fix in CS so doesn't disturb me.
The rest of the image has fantastic detail and the high contrasting works a treat. One to be pleased with, the full size image must look good as a desktop photo.

What wonderful contrast. A real eye catcher Janice. God bless!

Hi Janice
Oh! I love the richness of the colours in your landscape, and also the textures and composition. This would make an excellent postcard for New Zealand. I just love it!
