I tried this same shot many more times thereafter but it was only today that I finally cracked a small smile on my face.
The result is not perfect but is certainly better than all previous attempts.
The photo below, taken today of the same view, is dedicated to Timol who supports and endures my photographic & computer editing extremes.
Today alone she sat patiently while I bracketed 63 photos (multiply by 3 = 189) and added a few more for luck at various locations in Durban (a few hours altogether).
The next photo is dedicated to my “newest and big” supporters (Nicki and Larry Smith in the UK) who miss their hometown.
