Thanks for the comments guys. Much appreciated.
Jeremy and Chuck. Believe it or not there wasn't really any shadows at that stage to be honest. I had waited (well sort of snoozed for a couple of hours for the hazy sunshine to warm up. It was only when it got this low that I was able to get the starlight just right. This exact point was the strongest viewpoint for me so I could get the v of the dip and the v of the dagger like rock having a nice balance. By that time the shadows/sunlight had more or less disappeared on the rocks on the right. You can see some subtle sunlight in one area.
I have attached a straight out of the can image (although stitched so you can relate to it better) showing that the differences are pretty subtle but since you mentioned it I actually did notice that the dagger type rock had brightened up a bit from my final TIF image. I had desaturated the rocks for the web as they were looking rather cyan like in tone and I guess somehow it brightened up a bit. I darkened it down slightly to tie in more with the source image.
Of course the sky is burned to hell. I used darker images for the sky and ocean. The horizon is also a little bit off for anyone superimposing.
