    Did an overnight at work last night and decided the timing was right to catch the sunset down at the beach.

    I decided to play with one flash off camera and this is what I came up with. I found out that even though the D700 has high speed sync, my pocket wizards are not capable of transmitting that signal. Maybe when the camera is paid off I'll invest in the newer PW's.

    Any C&C would be gladly accepted.

    Nice execution; I would suggest the use of a G-ND .8 to reduce some of the blown cloud detail, but other than that, I like it.

    i love it! was that sign lit? if no, how did you get it so bright in contrast to the fence. when I try to shoot like that everything but the sky ends up black.

    Thanks everyone, I'm glad you all like it.

    The sign is lit by an SB-600 just out of frame on the bottom left corner. Triggered by a Pocket Wizard Plus II. I considered using my other flash to highlight some of the other grass in the foreground but didn't think it would really add to the shot.

    Thanks again for the replies.
