Great ominous clouds in the early morning over the sea and wanted to capture the entire mood thought it was bringing rain but it never happened and I realized the potential for great light when the sun broke through the clouds...

The red and blue boats are strategically positioned, to enhance an imaginary diagonal line in the composition. Beautiful sunset colours over the far away clouds. A very attractive picture!

"burst of sunshine" are very appropriate words to describe the effect you have captured over the horizon. I like very much the spectacular and suggestive manifestations of the morning light. A fascinating play of intensities and colours on the clouds and the reflections. I like how you added dynamism and colour to the foreground as well, rendering it meaningful and balancing your composition. The texture and motion of the water are awesome. The lonely figure at the edge of the boat is surely captivated by the sight, it's great you captured and shared this view with us too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

A photo consisting of two parts: the FG with attractive boats and the BG with fantastic, eyecatching clouds, great light and colors, splendid photo

Une lumière et un ciel remarquables dans cette très belle photo. L'horizon semble un peu pencher vers la droite?

A very pleasant photo well composed with boats and lonely man, the light capture is perfect, I like too the reflection on water.

Lep pogled i trenutak ujutru ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazan pocetak novog dana i oblaci koji donose kisu.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Imajte lep i uspesan dana, sve najbolje.
Nice view and a moment in the morning ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, well shown the beginning of a new day, and the clouds that bring rain.
Good work, nice captured moment, beautiful colors.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best.

I like everything, the colours, the composition. Can hang this on my wall. The far away clouds are outstanding.

the first or last lights are the best ones! I like the dark sea, enhancing the colors of the 2 boats. Following their diagonal lines, we discover the sunny and cloudy horizon. Only one person (and you) to take part of this memorable and quiet morning.

The light falling on the distant clouds has created marvellous effects of white, light yellow and dark yellow. On both sides of the photo the reflections of the lightest and largest clouds reach all across the water right up to the boats, which provide some interest in the foreground. The boats also add more colours and are nicely placed on a diagonal.

Quelle vue superbe image et compo quelle couleur et iamge avec les reflets et ces bâteaux et le pêcheur dans un tel décor grandiose.
Bravo et amitié

Yes, the light is the main attraction but the boats and the figure are perfectly placed to act as leads to the horizon. The light on the clouds and the reflections in the water are eye-catching.
Have a great day,

First class photo, as usual. The clouds appearing above the bridge look like the silhouette of a modern city. That contrasts well with the rather humble (fishing?) boats in the f/g.

Good evening Abmdsudi,
The rising clouds on far horizon really gave a unique light and a nice reflection over calm water surface.
Chosen superbly with the lone fisherman whos also watching the fascinating sight.
Clarity and DOF are immacvulate.

A so personal capture of yours, first rays of sun on the low clouds at the back creates a kind of golden horizon
Not only this , the two colorful boats so well positioned in a diagonal way help with contrast
The lonely fisher absorbed in the beauty of sunrise gives a bit of life at the capture
Good to way and better composed

Un ciel fantastique avec une belle lumière qui caresse l'horizon, beau cadrage des barques colorées qui accentue la profondeur, très belle réalisation

Hello Abmdsudi - A notable feature of your Indonesian seascapes is the light and the incredible clouds. Here is a good example of what I mean. Drama and beauty in the sky and super reflection across the sea. A great backdrop to the boats and lone figure. I do like the way you have composed this shot with the boats directing our view to the distant shore.
Apurba20 (984) 2014-07-04 23:29
This is wonder of a shot. Ominous clouds no doubt, but the omen is for the good, the way you have composed it.
Beautiful colors and light.
Have a great weekend.
Graal (98786) 2014-07-05 3:14
amazing and very nice seascape. Good composition, colors and contrast. Pleasant peaceful mood here. Photo I like.
Have a nice day.
macjake (58160) 2014-07-06 7:29
it was a hard choice between this photo and your latest "gaze", both are wonderful shots.
I just had to go with this one. The landscape or nature aspect of this is too much to pass up.
love how the water has that shine and sheen to it, and having the person just standing there provides a sense of emotion and mood.
and you couldn't have asked for a better collection of clouds and sky.
dta (69078) 2014-07-06 8:11
Hello Abmdsudi ,
A gorgeous composition , with a terrific and glorious light . Cloudy formations are fantatstic too .
The presence of the lonely man on the boat is a great bonus .
resat1972 (7486) 2014-07-06 8:13
perfect in one word
harmony of color and light spectacular
photographer_sg (4410) 2014-07-06 9:06
This is a superb picture full of atmosphere. Great framing with the two boats in the foreground leading the eyes to the dramatic sky. The presence of the lone man adds greatly to the sense of calm and solitude of the morning. Great colours and excellent sharpness all the way. Superb picture and thanks for sharing it!
Have a great new week ahead.

Spectacular place and spectacular capture.A very calm atmosphere here. Amazing landscape.Great composition, colour and presentation be superb.Beautiful and interesting job perfectly done.

After my vacation in Provence, I'm active again in the pages of TE.
Again another breathtakingly beautiful composition, love the POV, with the bow of the two boats in the foreground, which provide color and give a greater DOF, composition.
A great sky with a spectacular range of tones, I love those clouds on the horizon line that look like snow-capped mountains, the water surface has a fantastic glare and reflections.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Excellent done. I love it.
Have a happy day.
eldancer1 (29608) 2014-07-08 14:34
Tropical clouds are so beautiful! This scene look so calm and peaceful but we all know the sea turn ugly in a few seconds. The lighting is awesome and the reflections of the clouds on the water are beautiful. I would be standing on that boat just soaking in the beauty. Good details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Waylim (25368) 2014-07-12 15:55
the light is really wonderful here, full of drama with strong contrast and intense color which complements very well to the color of the foreground boats. The presence of the man stand alone adds a good sense of solitary mood. The quality of the photo is excellent as always and the most of all the mood is well capture and presented.
adidas5nb (5545) 2014-07-15 21:59
lovely wide panoramic view.love the cloud play and the colors at the horizon.like the composition and the mood of the shot.
delpeoples (53853) 2014-07-16 4:35
Another very tranquil sea scene. I really like how you are able to get those amazing pastel tones in the sea and sky and create a mood of solitude and peace. The lone man looking out to the horizon is a wonderful inclusion and it makes us wonder about the thoughts and concerns that are going through his head. The threat of rain has certainly created a strange, ethereally beautiful light. Well done.
Angshu (56260) 2014-07-18 2:13
The horizon is beautiful...we seem to have a cloud fence bathed in gold..that's excellent! What I also like is how you composed with the two boats creating a fine lead-in, and the reflection of the sky in the water. The man appears lonely out there..Fine work!
Didi (57816) 2014-07-20 8:34
It's a good opportunity if you are able to take picture
in such lights condition
Well done with this deep foreground
adores (38839) 2014-07-21 17:06
Once again, a fantastic sky and light. Seems one of the fishermen is watching the horizon, maybe to see if it's going to rain. The boats are very well placed. Another good morning shot!
