I so understand having a favorite photographic subject and the continual need to continue to return over and over to get that "perfect" shot. I do not know how you expect to improve on this one, but then my wife often feels I have a masterpiece when I feel I am going to have to return again to obtain that perfect shot of one of my favored subjects. Well done. Beautiful light!

Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken on the shore of Moreton Bay just north of Brisban, Queensland.
Time
This was a long exposure taken about 10 minutes before sunrise.
Lighting
The length of the exposure captured a lot of changes in the natural light typical of a Queensland sunrise.
Equipment
This was taken with a Nikon D800, Nikon 14-24mm ( set to 16mm). I also used a Lee .9 grad ND hard edge.
Inspiration
This location can produce a lot of different results, depending on the time of day and the wind and tide. I have been to this location more than a dozen times trying to capture a perfect image. This example is the image I am most happy with, although i think I'll keep going back as I believe there is an better shot to be had.
Editing
I only have Ligyroom and I don't like to add any enhancements. As this was a long exposure there was some noise, which I removed and I did a little balancing of exposure and contrast. The only other processing was to crop the image 2:1.
In my camera bag
I concentrate on landscapes and seascapes so I normally just take my D800 and Nikon 14-24mm. I carry Lee ND and ND grad filters and a wireless shelter release. I have a aluminium Vangaurd tripod that gets a lot of time standing in saltwater, so it needs to be ruggered, which it has been and has never let me down.
Feedback
I believe that to capture great landscapes the key is to research your location so you have a plan of attack. Shooting sunrise or sunset means you have a very short window of time in which to get the images you are after, so be ready and be effective. You will also proberbly be shooting in the dark so preparation is fundemental to success. You also need to really know your gear and the results it will produce, again you will be in the dark so it helps to be very familiar with the controls of your camera. Your eye sees one thing but your camera and lens sees it differently. You have to be able to see light and understand how your camera sees light, I think this is absolutely critical but also challenging as most people will see light as their eyes and brain sees light but they don't use that to interprete the light as the camera will. Of course composition is also key to interesting landscapes. Whilst the fundamentals such as the rule of thirds and foreground interest should be considered I think there are great results to be had by bending these rules depending on the subject and composition possibilities. Lastly you have to get out there and take shots. There is no substitute for time spent in the field. I shoot at lest 2 sunrises a week, which means in the summer months waking up at 2am. This commitment really does pay off in the end. If you are going out to shoot a sunrise take advantage of your time and plan to do a scouting trip to a new location after you are done with you morning shoot, you'll still be home in time for breakfast.
