[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an almost identically positioned shot to the first image "Terrigal Beach#2" except this was taken on a rainy morning and a little later as the sun was higher but obscured by broken clouds. I used an ND4 Graduated filter on the lens for the sky exposure.

The sand on the beaches along this part of the coast are a beautiful golden colour, it really comes to life when the water and sun hits it.

PP Work: Curves adjustment layers on sand, water and sky, USM on new layer, small crop and resize for TL.

Hello Bill,
This is lovely - great composition and colours...and I love the angle. The sea looks like gossamer. Great!

hi Bill,
great tripod work! Excellent..
It looks as though the horizon is tilted slightly.. but then again maybe not - particularly interesting! Perhaps some optical illusion or something.

Well done.
Regards, Daniel

Great effect with the water, this looks fabulous. Lovely composition and colours as well



Another great beach shot - timing on the exposure is perfect to create the dynamic feel to the waves - almost looks like a movie special effect with mist streaming in. Great drama in the sky and superb comparison between the colours of sand, sea and sky.
Thanks for sharing

Brilliant shot, Bill! Technically excellent, showing great creativity. All the best for 2007!

Hello Bill,
It is interesting to see the play of light and the effect of 1/3 exposure!
Beautiful colours and fine lines in a pleasant composition!
