Still thinking of this sunrise. All I used to edit this is that "lux" filter or whatever it is on here. It sharpened the clouds. But that's it. And in fact, this lux filter actually captures how it looked to the naked eye better than the phone camera does.
I say this because I sometimes go on mini rants about how absurd over edited sunrise/sunset photos are. I mean if that's your thing, cool, but it just looks so cheap and surreal. If you're going for surreal, mission accomplished. It's awesome if that's the case. But otherwise it's not a real representation of the natural beauty of the moment. I guess I'm just being really bitter because i see those photos with hundreds of likes and I want hundreds of likes. I have no problem admitting that. But also, it's stupid looking. 🤣#sunrise #oceangrove #bradleybeach #jshn #jerseyshore #monmouthcounty
