    Thanks Geoff :)
    I like the blue too, it gives it a certain feel.
    Thanks - the sunrise wasn't as spectacular as it could have been, but scenes like this made up for it.
    You should have come along :)
    Thanks Tim :)

    Gorgeous work David, love the blue tones too. Great exposure. Is that John's tripod leg to the left? ...just kidding ;-)
    Thanks also for organising this, it was fabulous

    You'll have to keep an eye on the Brisbane Meetup group then, as that's where we advertise these things :)

    Oh wow, breathtaking view here.
  • -Gadabout- said:
    I love the long exposure on this one :D Great atmosphere :)
  • David de Groot said:
    That is is :)
    I think it was about 400 secs for the exposure on this (the sky was 20 secs - I blended two exposures in order to get the same as what I saw).

  • -Gadabout- said:
    wow, 400 secs, that's a long wait to see how it's turned out! Great blend :D

    Thanks Shaun. :) I should have ventured down here much earlier and tried for some star trails too - oh well, next time.
    We don't rush things on these trips ;-)

    Very good indeed. Lovely contrast in texture between the rocks, sea, and sky; and bundles of atmosphere.
    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Jack :) I put another up on my site/redbubble today - didn't want to flood the flickr stream too much just yet.
