Winter came today.

Driving in horrifyingly slippery conditions was a test, but I arrived at the beach and started looking around. I was really drawn to the early thin layer of ice which reflected the light beautifully. All those textures just lighting up.

I set up at this particular location and waited for the sun to get low. Thankfully, there was an open slit in the clouds that allowed the "sunstar" to appear.

Cloned out a flare in this one. Adjusted barrel distortion as best as possible. Selective curves adjustment. Vibrance and clarity increase. Saturation gain. Sharpened for web.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that this is a two shot blend using this technique with a 1/10 second and a 1/30 second exposure (for the sky). EXIF info shows the slowest exposure.

Thanks for looking.

Thank you. The horizon is tilted here because I was sloppy when correcting the barrel distortion created by the lens. I have another version of this shot where the horizon is perfectly level. Just haven't changed it yet. Sloppy of me :)
