Alcudia - Platja de Muro - sunrise
7

Had to be creative with the first one as there were some people shooting wedding pics on that pier so couldn't show it all, plus there was a couple of other tourists watching the sunrise so I had to include them in the photo (I could of course delete them and their reflections but this approach seems better to me):

For the second, I had to run along the beach to get the right framing

Lovely work as usual Cedric

I prefer the first one; and I think you made the right decision not to edit the people out, as I think they add an extra element of interest without being discordant.

The second one is lovely, but has suffered from the softening effects of heat haze. I think you could improve that significantly with Topaz Sharpen AI? If you're ok for me to post an edit using Topaz, I'd be happy to do so - let me know?

Well done on making two very different, and excellent, images from the same sunrise!

Many thanks Lan! Yes please, go ahead! I’ll have to buy that Topaz Sharpen AI, you’re working wonders with it!

I have another very different image, more of a street one (still in the same place and around the same time, though) - wonder whether to post it here or in the street forum.

For the right scenario, in the right hands there's nothing that can beat it.

Thank you Cedric! Here you go - I've also painted around the lighthouse a bit as it looked a little as if there was a halo around it:

Topaz Sharpen AI, some luma correction in the clouds over the sun, and a bit of painting in darken mode to reduce the appearance of haloes.

Thanks a lot! This does look a lot better on the lighthouse! The clouds in front of the sun are getting a bit funky, can't decide if I like them like this or I would use a layer from the original image in that area.

Well, here it is - obviously a different treament, but it's amazing how much colour changes shooting in another direction at sunrise!

Silhouettes

Two nicely done sunset silhouettes. Personal preference is #2. There is something alluring about that big orange ball.

I like #1 but I love #2!

The haze actually improves the image for me, gives it that "sunset after a hot day" atmosphere.

Keep the people in the picture.  They add to it in a subtle way.
