The cove of Laguna Redang lit up by the rising sun, Redang Island, Malaysia.
The early morning walk to the beach and the slippery rocks was well worth it. The cove conveniently has a rocky area to the right side of it which made an interesting setting to shoot from.
Notes: Manually blended 3 exposures for this image through careful layer masking. The base image is the longest exposure. Couldn’t use my GND here because the bright area is in the middle of the frame. Mild curves adjustment and USM sharpening thereafter.
