On Friday morning, at the first sunrise I saw at Dewey Beach, I was surprised to see how empty the beach was of people and greyhounds. There were no greyhounds near where I stood while watching the sunrise. So I walked down near the water's edge, searching for something to catch my eye. I found a shell on the beach and took several pictures of it.
I removed several dust specks, cropped and made the horizon level, added a graduated filter to darken the sky from the top of the picture to just below the horizon, added a bit more exposure to the shell, and added a bit of sharpening.
I was disappointed that there were no clouds in the sky to make it more interesting. But that's another story...
