This is as good as it gets, second chance for these old nefs.
Shot in the North Bay at Kaikoura, New Zealand 17, 07.09 (my daughters 12th birthday) this is one of the last images that I shot that week in Kaikoura, this sunrise was sensational. Low tide reflections, seal colony to the right, seaward Kaikoura ranges to the left.
This is a Photoshop image stich using 3 images, this sunrise alone i would have shot over a 100 frames/brackets. each frame was processed in Photomatix before stitching.
Shot on a Nikon D700 with 17-35mm Lens, Cokin ND8 soft grad, Raw files with Active D-Lighting on High.
