Dawn at Dover Harbour (R1 image)
May 4, 2014

Went out early yesterday morning to catch some dawn light down at Dover docks. Chose my trusty old R1 to take this shot, as I needed a bit more reach than the 19mm on the my NEX 6.

Still in awe of how much detail the R1 resolves, the Zeiss optics on this cam are a joy..

Nice! What I like most is the Wake from the boat showing how it curved on out. Great asset of motion. Um, sky color seems a little off?

Thanks Bill, yes I was quite pleased I caught the wake here. Just been looking at the image on my work monitor today and you are quite right about the sky colour, I think the white balance needs a tweak.
