The Yuanyang Terraces are a paradise for photographers. The best time for photography is in February and March. During this period you can catch the prettiest of the terraces, because the rice terraces are filled with water, and every level layer of the terraces is bright with the reflective effects of light and shadow.
Thank you all for following my post on Yuanyang Rice Terrace and the constructing comment.
It is very difficult to get a majestic sunrise or sunset photos, unless National Geographic or a Local who are willing to stay there for months and wait for the perfect light.
I would like to share with you my experience in Landscape photography. During my 4 days stay, I hope for the perfect light every morning and nights arriving 2 hours before sunrise and 3 hours before sunset with the help of a local photographic guide to secure the best position.
Plan A the perfect lights does no appeal, my Plan B is to "Focus on composition and details" and if the lighting is good use colour, however if the lights is poor convert it to B&W and play with contrast

Beautiful graphics of the pools! Very nice also the backlight, which enhances the beauty!

On dirait des ombres chinoises. Belle réalisation et super choix pour le noir et blanc.

C'est une superbe photo, d'un très bon graphisme.
Un contre jour agréable avec les silhouettes humaines.

Another work of art from you. The tiny silhouettes are wonderful, especially the one with the hoe as it creates a strong sense of place. I love the reflected colours of the sky in the water. I don't think stronger sunrise or sunset light would have made it any better.
Obviously your Plan B worked perfectly well. :)
Best wishes and thank you for sharing this.
