(don't take that outta context)
After spending half the morning rearranging the driftwood on the southern end of Newport beach for, we finally had a log in the water with some level of decency about it (the previous attempt only got another larger log halfway to the water;) )
Even with the foreground interest , it was a real struggle to capture something worthwhile, the colours where pretty bland and it was one of those sunrises with a band of cloud across the horizon but not blocking alot of light – hence leaving a really high dynamic range scene (even with grad filters).
This image was composed with the warm sun (with alittle accentuation) to the right away from the bright part of the morning and of course with the ever moving 'rod's log', which shortly thereafter departed this position bound for better things
