Rockaway Beach Winter Morning Birds

Rockaway Beach Morning Birds


Rockaway Beach on a very, very cold winter morning a few weeks ago, just after dawn. The light and color in this photo are tricky. It was hard to balance the yellow and blues with a proper white balance. Every automated setting keeps pushing it further to the golden/yellow side but I opted for something a bit more blue. The whites (here represented by the foreground snow) are a bit off, but the alternative is what seemed to me to be an unnatural and extreme sky.

Well, you makes you choices and you lives with the results.

  1. You can always tell winter shots as the colors really seem to have a different feel to the. Nicely captured Mark.
