The Fighting Sun

Went out yesterday morning to North Bungan Beach on Sydneys North Shore with my best mate Darren (Pixeloc). We ended up walking quite a way around the shelf - almost half way between Bungan and Newport beach. It was quite a rough overcast day but we still soldiered on. Set this shot up quite early and then waited for the sun to rise. Snapped a shot at f/22 for the Sun Star, then the original was taken at f/8, 1/2 Sec@12mm. Also used a Cokin GND8 for the sky. Then blended the Sun into the shot using PS. I couldnt get shutter speed I wanted at f22 without upping the ISO so decided to do the blending options (it was only I small blend I promise). There where all good intentions of an in-camera shot but sometimes you have to deal with what you get given I guess.
