I almost discarded this shot , first i was a bit annoyed that some boat was going to ruin my reflections … how dare they lol !

Then i thought that you should never have tunnel vision and decided to squeeze off some shots while was waiting, and i remembered Trey Ratcliff saying dont be scared of shooting into the sun well i did.

When processing i also noticed the sunlight had flared the sunlight and i again thought the shot was lost but after looking at it i still think it worked perhaps added to the shot

I’ll leave it to you

Narrabeen Lakes is about 30 klms north of the Sydney CBD, it’s a great spot early morning.
Still waters add light and clouds = great reflections

Technique :HDR 5 Bracketted Images, Photomatix 3.26 Photoshop Elements

Equipment: Nikon D300, Sigma 10-20mm

    It definitely ‘works’…the boat is not a distraction at all. The ripples from the baot add more interest.
