Dreamlike, unreal. Must be a living dream sitting on that bench and watching the sun rise in all its beauty, painting the sky in deep, intense colours...

Superbe prise avec de belles couleurs vives. Un joli dégradé de orange !
Le banc est magnifiquement positionné.
Beau contraste tons froids - tons chauds.

i personally love snow and sunsets, so this picture is perfect for me, the contrast between the white and the orangish and redish tones is perfect, i love it

Can it be better? Well done, you´ve composed it perfectly and I like your framing. Beautiful colours and nice details. Well done!
igorb (758) 2005-03-21 17:09
2/3 ice cold and 1/3 fire hot divided diagonally, a good recipe for perfect photo.

My Godness... In French we are used to say "Que du bonheur !" (This is nothing but happiness !)
It seems hardly believable that such a landscape does exist on our Earth. Even though you changed levels, there was certainly a wonderful base for obtaining this result.
Of course, I do not find anything to amend in this one... CONGRATS...
(I take it for my theme, in which you deserve the first place !!!!)

Tutaj dałeś dopiero popalić z kolorkami - świetny kontrast pomiędzy niebieskim i czerwonym.
mlopes (494) 2005-03-21 18:03
In this photo, i like the contrast between the warm colours of the sky and sea agains the white snow! the lonely bench makes this a dramatic picture. Very well done. Congratulations, Mário.

Fantastic job Ziggy!
This truly is fire and ice (although that cliche has been widely used here on Trekearth). Great composition and color tones Ziggy, well done!

Great light, incredible water and amazing red sky. Very beautiful combination of cold and hot colours. you also did a very good composition. Really superb! TFS. Brgds Ziggy
DAM (153) 2005-03-21 21:15
Ziggy, really nice colours here on top of the bench and the reflection of them on the water.
I am glad the winter is a thing of the past and waiting for summer eagerly. Thanks
avigur_11 (22099) 2005-03-21 22:17
shocking colors a very nice composition and a great POV. Sharpness and DOF are great, too. Fantastic shot.
mpb001 (4602) 2005-03-21 23:06
Very nice shot, Ziggy. You have captured both the warmth of the sun and the cold from the snow here. Great job
supereira (9576) 2005-03-22 3:54
Very good shot.I like the composition and point of view.I like it a lot.Very good colors and contrasts.I like the contrast between the sky and the snow.Great reflections in the water.I like the light and sharpness.Good job!

Very beautiful and sharp contrast between the warm and cold areas, I like too the fine array of warm colors, the duck trace on the lake is an additional attractive detail. The bench accounts for a nice composition, it could be IMO better if it were at the left of the frame.
Have a nice day,
dkeus31 (27735) 2005-03-22 4:16
Nice colors (almos unreal), strong contrast between the warm sky and cold foreground.

Bonjour Ziggy, belles couleurs presque surréelles, belle composition avec le banc, beau travail.
Hello Ziggy, beautiful almost surreal colors, beautiful composition with the bench, beautiful work.
vapours (8264) 2005-03-22 8:55
Amazing shot, just love the rich red sunrise against the white and cool looking snow. Well Done.
marieaude (1196) 2005-03-22 8:58
Waouhhhh !!! Great colors and photo. Thanks
capthaddock (28790) 2005-03-22 12:13
Hi Ziggy -another magnificent morning, surreal colours. I wish there were no footprints, but oh well its perfect in every other sense.
Fixfocus (9385) 2005-03-22 13:23
Beautiful colors and contrasts in this image,Ziggy!I like the clear and straight compo very much.Also a very crisp and clear image.
Graal (102752) 2005-03-22 14:09
Nie do wiary ile można wyciągnąć piękna z natury Twoją kamerą no i rękami autora.Tylko pozazdrościć tych pięknych świtów czy poranków.Ktoś koło ławeczki przechodził i może przysiadł na chwilę.Ławkę dobrze wkomponowałeś, nie centralnie ale ona wraz ze śladami spełnia też rolę szafażu.Niebo jest takie o jakim mogą marzyć fotografowie - jeszcze nie widać kuli słonecznej ale te kolory dają już zapowiedź pięknego dnia.
Podoba mi się. Znów zabieram do ulubionych.
Fis2 (96819) 2005-03-22 14:41
Nic więcej nie powiem,ale zazdroszczę takich widoków.Świetne kolory,super zdjęcie!
toni_al (15875) 2005-03-22 14:52
What a fantastic shot ! The colours, the composition, the atmosphere. Everthing. Brilliant.
ChristianS (2997) 2005-03-22 15:37
Very nice photo, great composition, nice subdued light. The colours are superb and the strong contrast between the sunrise reflected water and the snow is very, very nice. Well done!
nwoehnl (122) 2005-03-22 15:53
Well, Ziggy, this is truly impressive work yet again. I won't even start talking about the sunrise colors in the back that are just awesome, but I really like your composition with the good placement of the bench and the crisp rendition of the snowy and frosty lakeside details. Great shot.
quantabeh (5205) 2005-03-22 21:07
wow Ziggy, I don't know how you have managed to do this, but you have done it superbly. I guess I don't need to say anymore but it is very classic and beautiful.
great work and looking forward to more of your work.
ChrisJ (113309) 2005-03-23 4:49
Wow! Superb color & saturation with excellent sharpness & lighting. The graphism, silhouettes, & foreground texture in the snow are especially marvellous. Very good!
jmdaoudal (82) 2005-03-23 5:43
This is a very strong solitude with this empty benc in front of the grat light from the sky.
I like the colors and the whole composition is GREAT.
Galmeida (12559) 2005-03-23 6:11
What a atmophere and beautiful composition you captured at the sunrise. The bench is a must in this enquadrement.
Like a dream and a Fantastic picture.
Very well done and congratulations.

Sensational! Just perfect...
MvS (4163) 2005-03-24 15:54

What a strange color ! Great shot ! Congratulations.

C'est absolument féerique, ton image est superbe. Ciao/jr
HOBO (5282) 2005-03-28 3:22
Well Ziggy, everything is said already ...
Phantastic painted sky on the water; the dark stones perform an effective border between the colors and the snowy area with the bench. Footprints in the snow form a interesting pattern.
LCannon (2796) 2005-03-28 21:47
Amazing what you get to see when you get up early enough. The orange/yellow/red glow here is so intense, hot looking, contrasted with the icy blue. The bench looks quite cold. The only thing that would have made this perfect for me is if there weren't any footprints, like you were the first one here. Although maybe just one set would look okay too. Love this mood created with this photo. Well done.

sarju (5324) 2005-08-17 16:36
I can't believe I hav'nt critiqued this photo of yours so far ... you have captured very dramatic sunrise colours of the lake and the sky accentuated by excellent contrast with the bluish shade of snow. cheers .... sarju
weswang (18223) 2005-09-23 10:55

vguilleaume (29) 2005-10-18 11:37
Really nice color, I like the composition also but the contrast between the snow and the sun on the river. Great :-)
Gix (3565) 2005-10-18 11:58
even if the Neat I. can be a help, the result is amazing good.
Great job, of high impact!
dragonslayero (3116) 2006-07-25 15:33
Oh dear this is such a lonely quiet scene, almost makes me fear the coming winter with similar cold.
Great composition with lots of factors to really catch the eye.
Nice level horizon, bench placed just off center.
Colours are the mix I would just dream about.
Thank you for sharing.
emc (69) 2006-07-25 15:57
I have no words. Perfect.
