It was worth rushing down there for the sunset. Good colour, sharpness & framing. The pier is level too! Excellent pp work dodging the shadows. Have a nice weekend!

Kia ora Janice,
Wonderful photo, you have captured the colours perfectly.
Great composition, and I love the veiw of the wharf.
Hi Janice, I like the dynamics and the hues of the clouds.
Carefull on sharpening, the halos are showing in the esdge of the trees. Perhaps a little more saturation and curves on the clouds would would make it pop out further.
Also, I see some sharp demarcation between light and dark, which looks like a slash.
Lastly, for landscapes, try apertures of f/8 or smaller to capture more details. You may have to use a tripod, though.
PS: Ok for me to download your photo and make a workshop out of it?
It's so funny to see your pictures from Murray Bay...it's if I took them my self :-)
Wonderful view, perfectly captured! Stunning cloudscape, although I would have thought rain is on it's way. The wharf is a perfect detail in this shot. Great composition, magnificent colours.
Nicely composed shot of the bay.
Like the colours and detail of the sky.
Have added a workshop using your original, nothing wrong with this shot just me trying some PP work.
A really well composed shot full of 'mood'!
The jetty makes a fine divide to emphasise the composition, with the trees to anchor it nicely.
The sky is a 'must' for photography!
I had to laugh at your saying 'Red sky...'
In the U.K. the version is 'Red sky at night, shepherds delight' which I would have thought even more appropriate for N.Z!
Have a good w/e,

Oh we were watching this one too - out on the balcony pointing at the rainbows and the glowing clouds ... it was one spectacular night. We provided a great feast for the mosquitoes in the process. :)
Didn't think to take any photos though.
I like the composition of this one. A litttle 'halo' around that headland on the left, did you do some dodging to lighten?

great clouds and well captured, my friend said he almost phoned me to tell me about the sunset, so I missed it.
Like Bev, I was brought up with 'shepherd's delight
