    I was trying to get a shot of this boat with the sun rising behind it...and I notice the bird...

    By the time I got around the boat I found this...

    Nice shots, Glenn. Love the dark detail of the boat in the first, and the overall comp in the second.

    The sun through that band of cloud on both is just nuts. Just MHO but I would have cropped the bottom off of the second?

    Thanks Paul. I'll have to play it to see if the crop will work.

    Ditto - I would crop at the waterline. Fantastic sunrise and exposure. Love the shot.

    Excellent, Glenn. Although I can see how the crop has improved the 2nd image, I find it a shame that we lose the glistening sea. However, two (nay,...three!) great shots.
