Which sunrise is better?

This will be my last post with ocean pictures in it.  I saved the best for last.  The last morning I was in Myrtle Beach, there was an amazing sunrise.  The best one out of the whole trip.  I took such awesome pictures, that I even impressed myself and plan to blow some of these up to frame them.

First up, you know it, the silly bottle shot.

This is Elemental Styles Copper-nicus, Bettina Yellow, Orange, Flame and Barielle Berry Blue.

I also want to mention that this is my very first attempt at sponging and gradients so go easy on me!  I started with a layer of Yellow, sponged on Orange and Flame and freehanded a seagull with a random black.  Here are those pics.



Should I even point out the flaws in this?  Remember I did an experiment that most people don't see the flaws if you don't point them out.  But I think they are pretty obvious here.  I was impatient and there are bald holes in this!

I then added a layer of Copper-nicus and my funky french in Blue, to symbolize the ocean, and it looks black in these pictures.  Here is the final result.



For my first try, I don't think this came out too bad.  I am not going to go into the Copper-nicus in this post.  You just can't see it well enough-but stay tuned because it is awesome!!!!

Here is what I was trying to recreate.

This last picture is my favorite of all.  I am seriously proud of how cool this picture came out.  I'm going to blow this one up to 11x14 and frame it.

So this concludes my trip to the beach.  I hope you have enjoyed this as much as I have.  I will be going back next February-so more pictures then!

I'm not even going to ask which sunrise is better-because you can't beat nature!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
