Dawn, Governors Bay
Nikon D80, ISO 200, f11, 1/500 sec, 25mm efl, Photomatix Pro 3, Capture NX2.

It makes me smile to select a 'filter' during digital post processing

settings in software until its just the way I want it and there's no bleach to bypass at all! That's progress, I guess.

thorough the RAWs seeing what can be made of them. This one particularly appealed to me with its glowing sunrise.

"Can you photograph our model?" they asked. The model wasn't a 'she' - call me old but this was a more interesting challenge. Available light only in a cluttered room. The sky is from "Plays with clouds"
