Yesterday, even though the sky did not look like I could get a nice sunset I never the less decided to head down to the bay and at least practise a few techniques needed for full sky line and ocean photography.
In essence to do a reasonable photo with detail in clouds one must have a graduated density filter. Otherwise the sky becomes over exposed or the sea under exposed. The graduated density filter enables one to exposes for the sea and the keep the sky and cloud detail. Especially near sunset where the horizon glow is way to strong.
For this shot I used a graduated density of .6, just enough to dim the skies and keep the detail.
Hope you like it.
