This scene was taken at Bantayan town wharf after I shot my previous posting (Bantayan Sunrise). This is facing west, thus I only got the color cast from the sunrise. I was fortunate that the full moon was still visible.
When people from the outer islands visit the main township to trade or buy provisions, they normally just sleep in their boats overnight while waiting for the tide to come up.

sa susunod kong bisita sa Cebu, kailangan marating ang Bantayan Island. noong huli kong bisita, niyaya ako ng aking pamangkin na puntahan ito, kaso yong araw na yon ay patungong Maynila na ako. sabi'y 4-5 oras ang biyahe nito mula Lahug. I am a loser!
a scene like this with both the sunrise and the moon together is a golden capture! kanindot, Bai.

great sky and nice reflection, i keep thinking what if the moon is 3 to 4 times bigger.
robertosalguero (196) 2008-04-27 18:52
The blue tarp make a nice contrast against the warmer colours of the morning. The view is pleasant and colourful. I think you balanced the image very well and placed the boat properly. Nice deep view of this ocean scene. THanks Renier.

You have included some wonderful elements to go along with the beautifully peaceful sunset. The traditional fishing vessels are seen in remarkable details and nice flowing lines as they are surrounded by striking reflections from the sky and moon. Exceptionally clear colors and razor sharp details to this breathtaking composition.

Best regards. Salvator.

A pleasant image focusing on one of the true Philippine icons, the banca!
And it is well done to find some sleep there, hehehe...
The amazing part of the image is the morning light, telling another hot day is coming up!

danos (80288) 2008-04-28 3:14
what a nice reflections on the calmly waters of this splendid place,they stand out more than the real ones above.! The place looks so picturesque and idyllic to visited someone.You were lucky that the full moon and the hidden sun are about in the same line. Very interesting and informative note.
jlbrthnn (79791) 2008-04-28 3:36
Hello To disavow,
Very astonishing this image with simultaneous presence of the Moon and the Sun. You also took a superb reflection. Very good framing and soft and pleasant colors.
Have a nice day
jplebrun (21208) 2008-04-28 4:37
belle composition de ces gens qui dorment dans leur bateau sans voir le spectacle que le coucher de soleil offre derrière derrière eux.
izmirli (3864) 2008-04-28 5:33
merhaba dear renier
wonderful renkler ve yansımalar.wonderful marina and interesting boats.well done.
batalay (33891) 2008-04-28 5:58
What a spectacular reflection of the rising sun in the water. The composition, colors, resolution are all flawless.
feather (51128) 2008-04-28 6:50
You can often get the best sunrise/set shots with the sun behind you. I've often seen the moon out during the day, but to see it amongst the pink clouds is a wonderful sight. The reflections are also very attractive and have a wonderful sheen. Amazing to see the people asleep in their boats. They must be heavy sleepers. :D Good work
dareco (17134) 2008-04-28 6:54
WOW! This is another real beauty!! I love the colors in the sky and the reflection! Excellent colors and very nice pov. TFS

that colourful boat in the light of the evening with the orange and red touch in the sky catches the eye. Good clarity and sharpness in that scene.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
molla (7127) 2008-04-28 13:09
Always fascinates me in South East Asia in the way people are sleeping. I I fell asleep in that way for just half an hour i would not be able to walk in weeks time. great cached light.
mesutilgim (75580) 2008-04-28 13:29
Wonderfull scene very well captured. Amazing pov and great colors. Good idea to use portrait format which gives enough space for those nice reflections.
dip (22232) 2008-04-29 1:10
beautiful image with impressive colors and reflections,
very good point of view and framing,
devimeuxbe (58557) 2008-04-29 4:21
the perspective and the vertical cropping are beautifull. But of course the best impact is this soft light with amazing colors.
Nicou (109742) 2008-04-29 5:27
quel reflet, ce ciel dans la mer, mangigique, cette grosse tache de roseavec le soleil est mangigique outour ce ces beaux bâteaux.
Bravo et amitiés

Moon and the sunrise offer an interesting experience here. Your composition is again excellent, esp. the foreground. Very nice. Regards,
ChrisJ (92128) 2008-04-29 17:56
Missed this one. A fantastic sunrise, with wonderful reflections, & a dynamic composition. Good repetition of the boats, & superb colour. Tfs!
Angshu (53665) 2008-04-30 0:35
Like how you composed the shot with the boat from the corner creating a very effective lead-in. The clouds & the full moon in the sky are excellent, but their reflections are even more beautiful! Lovely shot indeed!
Photo65Net (43120) 2008-04-30 1:01
Very pleasant compo.
You nicely used th boat as a FG, and the reflections are so beautiful...
Tue (25798) 2008-04-30 2:05
A gorgeous sky with great sunrise colours as well as the moon. There is also a wonderful, peaceful atmosphere with all the boats along the pier in the calm water. Very good vertical composition too. Thanks for sharing!
paura (47166) 2008-04-30 4:22
A great composition witha an excellent point of view and nice colors settings. well done.

How are you!
Many thanks for such a awesome sunrise that sharing with us!
You got the best colour contrast in the whole composition also the pov with a good fg perspective towards the far horizon!
nice one, my friend
stego (22556) 2008-04-30 18:04
Wonderful light, colours and compo. The boat on the FG and the pier are very cleverly and graciously placed, filling the image with something more than a gorgeous sunrise view with the moon as a bonus.
hatti52 (12786) 2008-05-01 0:29
excellent sunrise image with wonderful colours and great light management
noborders (1010) 2008-05-01 6:38
I'm not too much a fan of sunset photo but this one is different with the catamaran in the FG and this sort of causeway in the BG, plenty of little details to observe and nice atmosphere !
saylan-cb (12738) 2008-05-01 8:23
Great colours and wonderful reflections...
Very nice POV here...
azaf1 (15929) 2008-05-02 0:50

jhm (130662) 2008-05-02 4:33
Splendid scene with the moon and the fantastice sunrice.
But the boats in foreground get all attention, through that the people sleeping in the boats.
Nice composition and pleasant for look it.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice weekend,
crckt (7218) 2008-05-02 18:05
I like the different colors here, looks amazing! Sharpness and clarity is also very good.
bakes888 (18499) 2008-05-03 2:15
Hi Renier. Very relaxed photo ;-). Beautiful setting and perfectly calm. There must be worse places to spend the night. Well captured with good foreground interest to create that depth. Wonderful colours also. Thanks for sharing.
ls7902 (7312) 2008-05-03 5:41
A great composition & high POV. Nice colors & reflections. The pier & other boats serve as a balancing feature. Regards. Latiff.

belle photo de ce coucher de soleil sur ce port avec ces embarcations superbes.
Les reflets du soleil et de ces lueurs sur cette eau calme sont magnifiques.
Cette personne qui dort sur ce bateau a l' avant est bien prise et nous donne un aperçut de ce que ces gens font, il faut le faire de dormir ainsi dans si peut de place.
Bien vu, bien pris.
gildasjan (40034) 2008-05-04 9:28
Le ciel et ses teintes donne tout son attrait à cette composition grâce à ce reflet devant la jetée.Une belle invitation au voyage.
AiresSantos (56155) 2008-05-05 7:31
A lovely sunrise with nice colours and details. I added it to my favourite sunrise theme. I like the reflections, speciality the moon. Well seen and done

What a beautiful scene. I like the warm colours of the sky and the moon together. This is a golden capture, great work.
syd1946 (18663) 2008-05-23 0:22
I like the dreamy atmosphere and the so warm lighting all around...The reflected moon and the golden color on the water from the sunrise made big impression.I like it very much!
Have a nice weekend,
mehmetemin (7231) 2008-05-23 2:20
Amazing view and colours!
It is perfect...!
adores (32184) 2008-05-27 17:25
Really good composition with a very good format. The boat in foreground and the reflection of the cloud are perfect.Very good colours and sharpness.
japiey (10163) 2008-06-03 1:59
A lesson in composition.
Great image with perfect light and tone balancing.
Blairfraser (849) 2008-06-05 9:56
Wow! This is an amazing picture! I love your composition here with the boat in the foreground. The colours here are really good as well. The sun just makes this picture even better!
Very good work!
woozbman (366) 2008-06-06 21:10
Very nice composition and excellent colors. The light from the sunrise creates a very nice mood for the photo.
axiotea (21649) 2008-06-14 1:57
I like to see the full moon among the pink clouds which are reflecting so nicely in the water. An interesting marine scene with the typical outrigger boats, in a nice morning atmosphere, well presented. The horizon seems to be slightly curved, but that's a minor detail.
JCG (35129) 2008-06-20 0:38
The spectacle of this sunrise is superb, I like much the colors of the photograph and this beautiful management of the light. These two people must be agreeably rocked by this glassy sea and the calm one which arises from the landscape. Very pretty shared moment, thank you Renier.
With all my friendships and an excellent WE,
yedirenk (11242) 2008-06-22 0:55
Very nice sunset colors.light,depht and reflections are excellent.great scene with the moon.well done.TFS
Hendrika (655) 2008-07-07 23:35
I needed my daily dose of colour, and indeed here it is.
Must say the bridge-picture is stronger in B&W ^-^.
No need to bother with a return visit, when I am on TE.
muscovado (1566) 2008-07-13 2:15
Wala gihapoy pag lubad imong mga tira bai, nag kadugay nagkakuyaw. Great timing with the moon.
Muse (34936) 2008-07-13 11:40
Un très joli ciel, une belle lumière.
Bon cadrage avec le bateau et ces touches colorées à l'avant plan.
De jolis reflets dans l'eau.
jmcl (14535) 2008-07-13 16:43
Wonderful stillness .. beautifu ltone .. I especially love the gentle diffusion of the sky ... take care, John
Stepan (27210) 2008-07-19 13:40
An interesting frame, a great soft light, a strong contrast. That's impact... Well done.
