Photographer's Note

Shot was made early in the morning at 05:35 on the Portmarnock Beach in Dublin, Ireland.

I already made few shot of the pre-dawn beach, so I decided to concetrate on some close up studies of the beach. Low tide revealed some amazing sand patterns on the beach and the warm light of rising sun created beautiful play of light and shade.

I opted for this composition, as I felt it was better with the rock breaking the pattern, thus creating focal point of the image and also giving the scene necessary depth.

One comment though: I am new to TE, so have a bit of head ache when downsizing images for TE. As a result they seem to suffer from increased noise and loss of sharpness (look at some of my other images). Is there anybody out there who can help me with this, or point at some forum here on TE, that already covered this issue?

Lens: Tokina 12-24mm F4 ATX Pro set at 24mm
