One of the many perks of living in Sydney is the amazing sunrise you can get along the coastline. Sunrise is one of my favourite time to shoot because of the amazing colour you can get from. Every sunrise is different and that's the exciting part that motivates me from waking up in the middle of the night. I have shot at the location more times than I can remember but every time I come home with something different and I think persistence pays off this time
The settings for this shot are 1/2 sec at f/8 and ISO 100. I have used a graduated ND filter to balance the exposure between the sky and the sea. I think the use of filter is underrated these days with the advancement in pro processing and HDR, but I am still a big fan of them, I think it forces you to understand how thing works and get it right in camera. It might not be for everyone, but I think if you haven't tried it before, it is definitely something you should try.
I hope you enjoyed the photo and feel free to share it with your friends and family.
