Sunrise in Penang

There's a bunch of guys/gals celebrating ShutterAsia's 2nd anniversary in Penang over last weekend. Plenty of shooting involved. Went to Shamrock Beach nearby Batu Ferringhi with wife and Capix to shoot the sunrise.. A little rusty, especially with landscape, but it's a good practice for the upcoming Perhentian Island trip, scheduled third week of March.

Well, here's some sunrise shots.

wow, if that's rusty, i'm beyond salvageable. =) would you mind sharing the exif for these shots? i love the water texture? ultra long exposure?

:D Nick. Purple fanboy! ;)

Steph, really, I need to brush up the landscape skills. Took me quite some time to compose the shots..

Sharing the exif? Sure. Those are shot between 15-30sec exposure, aperture around f/16-22. To slow down the exposure time, I stacked GND filters (ND4+ND8) on the lens. Some had blue filter on top of those 2 ND filters.

Landscape is fun, but essential accessories include a steady tripod and those Cokin filters, especially the GNDs to balance up the foreground/background exposure.

Visited your guide. Very nice. Drop me a line if you'd like to use any of my Penang images.
