Jersey Dawn

Jersey Dawn
The picture above is taken automatically from flickr.com, if there is something related to the picture please visit and contact flickr.com
I was on Jersey for a wedding, staying in a hotel with this as my view (to wake me up), and I just had my little compact Ricoh with me. After taking a few shots through the window, I wanted to get a shot without the hotel furniture in the foreground . So I climbed out of the window (just), took some photos (unfortunately with the sunbeams gone), and looked for a way back into the hotel at a little after 5 o'clock..
When I failed to find an entry, I tried to climb back through my window -- at my age -- no fool like an old fool -- etc etc. I survived......

I wish I was better at post processing. I feel there is a really good photo there somewhere. If I work it out, I'll replace it. I love the way the palm echoes the sunbeams.

I loved your story :)
Beautiful sky !
Nino H 2007-07-11 22:39:40
You climbed out of the window! You are a brave man Alex. I take it you had to go in via the reception?

Beautiful rays
Skinnyde 2007-07-11 22:49:10
LOL, Paul, Skinnyde. Reception was unresponsive at that time. Anyway I felt a certain bashfulness to own up to climbing out. Glad I worked out the alarm system enough to avoid setting if off.
algo 2007-07-11 22:55:10
Its a good image, I would try b&w with a bit of dodge on the ray's.

The sun beam king strikes again - and nearly strikes out!!!!
Gail Johnson 2007-07-11 23:15:57
Wonderful composition, clouds and tones Alex !
I would have love to be a small mouse, hidden there to admire you, climbing the windows like a thief... and perhaps in Pyjamas ? :-))))
Warm kisses my friend :-)

I'm smiling...big....as I read this! Glad you made it back inside without injury. As for the photo..I really like the first one. Great rays and I like the definition of clouds close to the ground. Magnificent. The second two aren't my cup o' tea.

I like the top one best Alex.
We (now that I'm a brave flying person) had a wonderful view of Jersey as we flew to Luton last month. I got mu camera out too late but it looked just like the beginning of Bergerac. If I had got the right shot I may have got a spectacular view of your rear end disappearing through the window. Good training for cat burgling if nothing else!!!
Hope it stops raining for you soon,
Jenny

Algo, you don't need any post-processing skills. Your photos are so amazing right out of the box !!
I took a Photoshop CS2 class at a local community college. It helped a lot. Plus, as a student, I was able to get a copy of Photoshop for about 1/3 normal cost.

What won't we flickrites do for a good shot, huh? :) Great worksmanship, and I do think your post processing works great here, gives the shot a surreal feel.

I like the original as is, Alex. The palm tree and the lightpost are nice elements, too. I can see a possible crop in it as a vertical, but it would take out the tree and lightpost.
