5 Minutes to the Left

I arrived with the John Barclay's group a good 45 minutes before sunrise. Most of the group went to the right side of the pier, I went to the left side and found Shaun there. It's that left-handed thing. This was my first shot of the day. It was really dark. so dark that I didn't know if my manual focus was good or not. Took a lucky guess at a 5 minute exposure. I'm always amazed at the color those photo sites will soak up in a loooonnng exposure like this, since to the eye it was a black scene. I'm just starting to play with the new Topaz Adjust 5 and so far I'm liking it. Finished it off with some NIK brushed in here and there.
