Classic view of Bromo and Semeru volcanoes from Penenjakan viewpoint after sunrise., 45mm. focal length. Semeru is the big volcano at the back, seen erupting ash. Bromo occupies the lower left quadrant and spews sulphurous vapor. There were at least 200 people around me taking the same photo.

Such an impressive scenery Tan, a powerful demonstration of the nature.. thanks
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2008-08-25 17:15
What can I say? It is a splendid picture. I really would like to be one of the 200 people around you that day. I really have to take a few days off next time I am in Indonesia, which will be in early 2009. Congratulations.
casperduppy (1590) 2008-08-25 17:20
Quite an alien landscape if there ever was/is one. The plumes of hot smoke must carry for many a mile. I like the way the underlying clouds in the background also have a mountainous feel to them, comparing well to the ups and downs of these rocky golden chimneys.
All the best, Casper

Hello Tan !
That´s an eyecatching image!
Masterpiece. A DANGEROUS one !
A great composition. Well done!
scalerman (26900) 2008-08-25 18:14
Tan: there are quite a few from this look over Bromo here on TE - but it's a panorama that never ceases to compel. When I was there it was overcast... c

Very detail to show steam spreading out from craters, colourful volcano and more attractive shinning in soft sunlight, distinct image, good shoot.

Wow!!! Amazing view! This is something you will not forget anymore! Really beautiful, Tan!

one of the most fabulous place of our earth !!
splendid composition of this incredible place.
the best light
ktanska (24172) 2008-08-25 22:44
Incredible view. There's so many cones of volcanoes and at least two of them active. Perfect warm toned sidelight that gives very strong 3D effect. Direction of wind is quite favourable too.
jjcordier (73404) 2008-08-25 22:53
Absolument somptueux...et très impressionnant. Je ne pense pas que les 200 autres photographes aient réussi à obtenir une photo aussi belle que celle-ci.Quelle merveille!
HimalAnda (8552) 2008-08-25 23:05
This is a beautiful view of these amazing volcanoes.
I like the warm colors and the smoke coming out of the volcano.
Maybe you should have taken a lower focal length or tried a panoramic view, I think the landscape worths it.
A really good photo !
jurgen (2074) 2008-08-25 23:21
I don't know about the other 200 people, but this one photo of yours is an excellent capture. How early you woke up to make this picture? It was simply worth it.
The orange tinge on the nearby peaks give the picture a sort of 'warm' mood, but I think it could have been cold up there at that moment. And the plumes of smoke coming out of the big volcano make the sceneary like one from another planet.
An excellent picture.

Gerçekten çok etkileyici bir kare. Harika olmuş.

Really a fantastic Bromo shot... there are so many Bromo pictures here but not boring to see your version, very clarity and beautiful colours. Amazing landscape....
bakes888 (18499) 2008-08-26 0:13
Hi Tan. 200 people and I guess 200 cameras! Wonder how many other TEers. Very dramatic landscape, helped by the low angle light. Nice colours also. Thanks for sharing.

what a beautifull picture under a beautifull light.
ifege (10131) 2008-08-26 0:49
This photo is brilliant! Perfect timing to make the most of the dawn light and great POV.
PixelTerror (0) 2008-08-26 1:51
Aaaaahhh the classic a la Bibi, I see there at least you had nice conditions, the succession of craters to end up on the main Bromo is very nice and with all the smoke we feel it's boiling !
Have a nice day JY
delkoo (68) 2008-08-26 2:12
You're producing some real gems lately, and this is another: spot on with the exposure, colours and composition .
jonathan_hart (21274) 2008-08-26 2:41
a classic always fascinating, it's surely worth to see it by own eyes rather than only a photo,
a fantastic place, the fantastic colours of this place with the first rays of the sun,
surely one of the best light on this place in the TE collection, near red hot
Jeppo (17639) 2008-08-26 3:47
excellent light and POV. I can perceive the whole mighty and power of this volcano!
npecanhuk (61104) 2008-08-26 3:53
As usual, a superb photograph, with excellent pov, composition, colors, light, textures, sharpness, on and on...
However, what mostly attracted me to it, was its objects: Volcanoes! I love them and fortunately I was able to visit and even climb some of them (Vesuvius - Italy and Villarrica - Chile)! Always a pleasure to see them here, thank you!
ChrisJ (94806) 2008-08-26 3:56
This is one of the few parts of Java I havent yet seen so thanks for sharing. An incredible sight of the erupting volcanoes. Well done!

vaaay, boyle birseyin birak fotografini cekmeyi, bunu gormek bile bir blessing. muthis bir guzellik. fotografin zamanlamasi da super, isigina hayran kaldim.

klasik mlasik ama heyecan verici... akşam güneşi volkanları bile güzelleştiriyor demek... her zamanki gibi yine şahane olmuş...
sleon (9402) 2008-08-26 4:27
So this is where you have been? Classic view of this dramatic and awe-inspiring volcano. Ths smoke trails add a feeling of heat and atmosphere, and the lighting brings out every crinkle in the cones of the volcanoes. Superb, just stunning.
Philippe (11836) 2008-08-26 8:15
Hi, Tan. A very impressive sight. Those active volcanoes are rather frightening. I think they could burst any moment. There is a very good depth in your shot with all those volcanoes aligned in a row and the light on the volcanoes is very good.
Have a nice day,
chpp (4281) 2008-08-26 8:29
great capture, perfect sharpness, great colours and very nice POV. the textures on the volvanoes is just amazing
Kielia (22913) 2008-08-26 8:56
thanks for this stunning impression of the volcanos in the last rays of the setting sun. The colours are amazing. This is really a masterpiece! My compliments!
leo61 (0) 2008-08-26 10:20
One of my dream destinations,even when I have to share it with 200 or more tourists.
Fantastic view from this famous POV.Light and colors are incredible and there are fine details to view at the volcanic formations.A great shot!!!
quantabeh (5205) 2008-08-26 13:14

kevinos (7385) 2008-08-26 16:41
Only you could have found this explosive scene from such a dramatic view point, Tan, and at such a perfect moment and only you could have recorded it with such perfection. Regards Kevin
hispic (9619) 2008-08-27 3:03
What a beautiful moment! The selection of time for taking photo is perfect. Captured exquisitely the moment of Semeru's eruption. Fabulous dramatic landscape.
Have a nice day, Hisashi
jemaflor (80906) 2008-08-27 10:10
Oh ! What a great landscape ... superb light and perfect frame, it's so lovely, congratulations.

une succession de volcan dans ce cadrage impressionnant, une image avec beaucoup de contraste etde relief, super photo
cherryripe (21033) 2008-08-27 12:47
I can understand why 201 people would take a photo of this. It's really spectacular. Your composition is excellent with the different cones. However I find the pp a bit tern like an old photo. This is personnel as you can probably guess that I prefer stronger colours and contrasts. Anyway I did a WS for you.
tober (8797) 2008-08-29 3:22
Enfes bir manzara. Kükürt kokusu burnuma kadar geldi. Bizzat orada olup bu görülmeye değer doğa olayına bizzat tanık olmayı isterdim. Diğer fotoğraflarınız gibi bu da sıra dışı. Tebrikler. Tolga
Angshu (54769) 2008-08-29 4:08
What more can I say! A shot of breathtaking beauty. A classical shot alright, from this popular POV as you said in the last line of your note, but what a view! Since you've travelled across the globe, is it one of those images which stay on in your mind for a long time? What are those tiny white mountain like structures in the horizon, they look snowcapped mountains, but they can't be! This is a stunner!
setenay (7660) 2008-08-29 12:49
Nefes kesen bir güzellik, akıl alacak gibi değil bakakaldım dakikalardır.Ne mutlu gören göze çeken ellere.Kutluyor ve paylaştığın için teşekkürler ediyorum.Sayende gördüm böyle emsalsiz bir doğa olayını.
Didi (55127) 2008-08-30 7:43
Well done for this grat picture; I think that is the best point of view of the volcanoes in the world.
Very good lights; it's very fantastic.
francio64 (38264) 2008-08-30 15:27
ottima vista del vulcano, con il cono fumante.
Eccellenti colori e contrasto!

Waylim (25086) 2008-09-15 18:39
this is a fantastic images of these vocanoes, great DoF, cleary visible all the way back to the horizon. Perfect composition. Perfect time of day, the effort really paid off here, to go there early to catch such a scenery. What a moment. Technically may not be your best, I the sharpness is not as good as most of your other shots. I'm being more critical on you than othere, just because I very high expectation from you, that is perfection.
batalay (34783) 2008-09-21 7:31
You've presented an image evocative of the earth's early history, at least four billion years ago. The brilliant light and a resolution as sharp as obsidian glass, the plumes of noxious gas make this a memorable geological site, a group portrait of perolating, belching volcanos.
maximage (15535) 2008-10-07 14:31

Greg1949 (9011) 2008-10-28 4:04
Tan, I suppose it is an indication of how good this shot is that I choose to add first to this one. Maybe 200 others were there but it is an awesome sight for sure. The shear spectacle of the scene is magic but your capture is superb, great job.
Nessie (918) 2008-10-29 15:52

You sure are around Tan and this place must have spectacular to see in the light of the morning. Superb result from a most interesting place..
Wandering_Dan (3449) 2008-11-25 15:59
Hello, Tan -
Achim put both of us into his new World Globetrotters group, so I thought I'd see what some of the other members he picked have been doing.
And you have been doing quite a lot! I picked this one out of several great possibilities, because it is so classic, and done so well, and a part of the world I haven't been to. Yet. You got the sunlight, the smoke and the clouds perfectly, absolutely crisp and clear, and great light control.
vmukherjee (612) 2008-12-27 6:31
Amazing shot! The golden sunlight falling ont he volcanoes, with the colours and the shapes, look breathtaking.
banyanman (7789) 2009-01-18 4:01
Hi Tan. I've been away from TE for a while (busy with work) but just catching up on a few critiques now over the holidays. You told me you didn't have much luck wih the weather when you were in Indonesia, but it looks like a perfect day here. Superb composition and technical quality as usual. I wonder how many of the 200 people around you were taking pictures with flash (or were they all professionals like you?). Cheers . . . David
adramad (35481) 2009-04-15 9:34
Spectacular perspective and a great moment the one that you show us in this great POV. Very well done.
Ninello52 (7503) 2009-08-01 14:49
Foto e paesaggio da mozzare il fiato! Fantastica la luce del mattino, bellissime le attività dei vulcani!
smarcell (19963) 2009-08-27 6:57
This scene seems coming from another planet, or on the earth several million years ago.
I have seee pictures of this place other times, and they all have this fantastic light.
ps. In this area there should be also Volcano Tambora, which erupted in 1815. It was one of the major eruptions in the last several thousand years or so, and it caused the so called "year without summer" in 1816, with temperature below zero in northern America all the way down to Virginia. I would be curious to see a picture of it now.
korbee (6615) 2010-06-17 9:50
Amazing picture of superbe quality Tan,the light is really amazing,youvr got the best possible light managament with 1 sec!.
