This image was taken along the pacific coast in Costa Rica while scouting for some new seascape locations for my workshops/looking for original images. This image was processed from one raw file. In raw, with a little recovery there is no blown highlights. This scene was brief I just got set up my camera equipment and the sun was moving fast and was able to set up and shoot, the next few frames were completely blown out as the sun dipped below the clouds. I did bracket some shots after that but the color just wasn't as intense yellow as it is the sun just about to break through the cloud. Compositionally I tried balance out the hill on the left with the rock on the right and the stream of sand with the cloud stream above. I realize the horizon is about in the center but my thought was that the image really isn't about the horizon and there was enough going on in the image. By the way just below center there is bright spot at the full size it's perfect sunstar in the reflecting water. Let me know you thoughts. I also included a shot from my iphone of a 60 inch print of this image, printed on aluminum it adds a nice depth in person. *note the iphone photo really doesnt show depth,color, detail, dynamic range of the print Thanks for looking.
