This scene was shot in early December 2001 on the West bank of White Rock Lake in Dallas 30 minutes before published sunrise. My Olympus E-10 was set to B shutter speed. The aperture was at f2.2 and the ASA value was 80. Manual exposure time was 8 seconds.
Obviously I neglected to use my flashlight to look at the two spirit levels on my tripod and tripod head. The tilted horizon is corrected in Photoshop. Other enhancements consist of eliminating the bench on the left and making a Hue/Saturation adjustment.
There are some interesting colors and lights in this scene. Click on the image to see more detail.
