    Default First attempt at a sunrise, Maldon UK.

    Hi guys,

    So I got up with the birds this morning on a freezing cold winters morning in the UK. Decided to head over to the sea wall about 10 mins away and see if I could grab a sunrise.

    This is the first sunrise I've attempted, so all your comments and critique are welcome. I'm not totally happy with it, I don't think I got the focus quite right and I'm unsure of processing for these types of shot, but I don't think it's a bad first effort.

    Taken with my 550D and 18-55 kit lens. No filters or anything else.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    On a related note, I ordered a set of ND Grad filters and a Pro Stop 10 ND from Hitech, which turned up today. Lucky, because I'm heading back to NZ tomorrow!! Looking forward to trying them out when I get back.

    Due to not having a gasket?

    Due to a colour cast and some weird flare/IR circle thing if any strong light gets near it, which is a pain when your using it mostly in stronger light!
