As I was walking along the Marginal Way the past couple of days, I picked out a spot where there were rocks out into the water far enough so that a long lens could be used to bring the horizon closer and still have a feature in the foreground.
I used the EOS 5D mark II and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens. All shots were at f/8 and ISO 100. Shutter speeds shown in the caption are for the normally exposed file. I bracketed three exposures +/- 1 1/2 EV but I added + 1/2 EV exposure compensation to the set. So, the three exposures were -1, +1/2 and +2 EV exposures.
All of these images were made from the exact same tripod location between 30 and 35 minutes prior to sunrise.
