A magical hour watching the sun slowly started to rise above the horizon casting the warm glow over Straits of Bali.
This was taken at a small fishing village in Banyuwangi on the tip of East Java, using Grad ND filter to balance the sky and foreground areas while keeping the shutter speed relatively fast, as the approaching outrigger canoe was bobbing about....

Un lever de soleil magnifique qui donne au ciel des couleurs orangées assez extraordinaires. Le bateau est idéalement placé dans la composition.
Bravo et bonne fin de journée.

Very beautiful solitude scene. I like the atmosphere and the colors of the picturesque moment. Well taken.

You're capturing well this seascape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the sentimental spectacle in which the sun just sets under the horizon. It's also tasteful for the surrounding nature of the calm sea, the sky dyed to setting sun and the peninsula with silhouette in the distance. And, the outrigger canoe draws out a good impact in this image.

What a soothing sun rise, the red glow diminishing towards the corners.
Outstanding colors and composition. The canoe is exactly where it looks best.
Another beautiful painting with camera from you.
With warm regards,

una composizione che è l'essenza del romanticismo ma nello stesso tempo perfetta nei canoni fotografici.
Colori impeccanili e luce calda in un ambiente dominato da una eccellente nitidezza.
In sintesi c'è tutto quello che può aiutare a sognare.
Ciao e buona serata
ourania (41234) 2013-10-02 11:27
you captured this very beautiful scene with great sensibility, readiness and technical aptness. The beauty and the simplicity of this scene are touching. I like very much the fine definition of the two focal points and the way they are placed in your frame, so distant and so connected. The warm hues expanding in the sky are invigorating and heartwarming, I love how they've started warming up the silvery tones of the sea. A poetic image really, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Morning and evening lights should be the only one used by a photograph ;)
An awesom capture of this boat with excellent light management and framing
Thanks for sharing
williewhistler (16193) 2013-10-02 12:44
the graduated filter has enabled you to balance the light beautifully,the subtle morning colours are delightful in this well composed shot.
Kindest regards Les.

stunning picture, sunrise is my theme of the day too:)
The sun disc is hypnotizing and the orange sky illuminates the whole scene in the best way. Flawless composition with the perfect positioning of the boat.
Thanks and best wishes
Noel_Byrne (29183) 2013-10-02 13:32
What an incredible sunrise and you could not ask the boat to be in a better place to offer such a wondful composition. The sky is lit with the promise of a warm new day, and has created beautiful silhouette while still retaining a circle amount of detail. There can be no more beautiful time of day that this, and a superb job of capturing it here.
All the best

Very beautiful picture with special regards to the exposure, colors and, of course, composition!
TFS - congrats,
jjcordier (79295) 2013-10-02 23:21
Beau lever de soleil, la présence de l'embarcation apportant évidemment un gros plus à l'image.
papagolf21 (95497) 2013-10-02 23:43
Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Beauté quand tu nous tiens ! Ici, encore, le photographe sait exprimer la beauté, la magnifier, la valoriser.
Un véritable plaisir à contempler.
SnapRJW (31629) 2013-10-03 2:43
Hello Abmdsudi - Interesting and informative note as to how you achieved this shot and something I must commit to memory! Your use of the GND filter has given you an excellent sky with good colour in the rising sun. The reflected colours across the sea are attractive and realistic adding to the early morning atmosphere very convincingly. I can almost hear the gentle lap of the waves in this shot. Nicely done! Warm regards Rosemary

an image of simple elements but beautifully inspiring and creative. A real sense of the tranquil atmosphere here and all captured superbly. Excellent!

Wonderful sunrise picture, with a perfect outline of the sun! The colors are beautiful, and the lonely boat perfectly positioned! Wonderful composition! Excellent job!

Une carte postale synonyme de vacances, de mer et de soleil. L'ensemble est parfaitement cadré, mettant en opposition les deux éléments principaux du paysage.
mjw364 (432) 2013-10-03 6:09
A great shot - love the colours and there is enough detail in the FG shadow to make the boat interesting rather than just a silhouette. Such a warm orange for a sunrise quite incredible. Love it.
rychem (32245) 2013-10-03 9:16
Superb! I like such a classic and nostalgic composition, perfect sunrise photo
eldancer1 (35501) 2013-10-03 9:35
It is indeed very magical scene and this image is very personal for me, I've sailed those outriggers in my younger days in the Philippines. Awesome pov and it has good dof with nice details. I need to look into ND filter since I like taking pictures at sunrise and sunset. Very well done, tfs.
jemaflor (93239) 2013-10-03 11:13
Very well captured, nice sun and warl tones fot the sky, well composed too with the boat, tfs.
Silvio1953 (136705) 2013-10-03 12:21
Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating sunset, lovely composition with beautiful canoa in FG, fantastic sky, wonderful warm colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Cricri (115557) 2013-10-03 12:24
Un instant paisible, agréable a regarder, un lever du soleil merveilleux par ces couleurs et l'astre qui semble poser sur les terres, bon cadrage avec le bateau
CLODO (33422) 2013-10-04 1:46
Sunsets or sunrises are always eye catching, by the color of the sun, but after we have to look for a suitable landscape, the outrigger in this case, balancing the rising sun. The use of the gradual neutral filter cannot be seen on the sail, how can you explain this?
nikkitta (17066) 2013-10-04 11:44
Yes it seems s magical capture with the orange tones given by the raising sun reflecting on the sea waters
Well managed composition to catch the canoe with a well chosen shutter speed
The more I like are the different tone gammas of the sky
Congrats to show that not only sunset are romantic
bukitgolfb301 (39640) 2013-10-04 12:36
Hi dear Abmdsudi YTH
Wow indah dan hebat lagi! So dramtic image at all!
All the best and thanks a lot !
mirosu (15972) 2013-10-04 20:50
Success depends on effective action, ability to focus your attention where it is needed most, ability to separate the important from the unimportant; You got it all in one package, very moving image with the sailing boat in FG, the nice light reflections along with nice colored sunrise sky in BG. Well done my friend.
Wish you a very nice weekend.
delpeoples (56726) 2013-10-05 18:44
As you say, a magical moment caught forever. I love the golden light on the water and how well-balanced the image is with the sun on the right and the catamaran on the left. The image exudes a wonderful sense of tranquillity and love for the great outdoors. Excellent shot.
Waylim (25488) 2013-10-05 23:18
It is a very beautiful seascape, a great combination of nature and the nautical manmade transportation. the sun and sail boat is position perfectly for a classic composition, the rich tone and deep fiery color of the sunset transpired a peaceful mood and evokes sense of tranquility at the day's end. Excellent quality photo.
adramad (43115) 2013-10-07 12:51
Wonderful sunset, that in addition to the beauty and charm of the solar disk is almost in the line of the horizon, the quaintness of the ship we see in the foreground, adds great value and charm to the composition.
A superb light management, sharpness is also perfect to enjoy the picture.
Very well done.
Have a good day.
SWEETFREEDOM (24388) 2013-10-07 23:39
beautiful sunrise, very good light management and nice colors.
mcmtanyel (19701) 2013-10-10 10:39
What a beautiful sunrise! I rarely get up early in the morning to catch the sun rise, especially on vacation. Lately, I have been able to get a shot or two of the sunrise while I am driving to/from an early morning meeting or to work.
I love where you have placed the sailcanoe (I just invented that word). It looks like I need more glasses for my main camera's lens, right now I just ha a circular polarizer filter, mainly to protect the lens.
PS. Sorry I do not have a new photo today, my latest update got confiscated by an overeager admin under the pretext of excessive postprocessing.
berek (47314) 2015-07-04 20:49
A beautiful sunrise that gives the sky quite extraordinary color orange. The boat is ideally placed in the composition.
Have a nice Sunday.
