Wayne from Melbourne, Australia

awesome stuff Jerry! Although on a personal level...I think a better shot would be a centered photo of the sun rising in between two balustrades at a perpendicular angle to the direction of the shot. that way you get the lovely profiles of the balustrades with the sunrise in the center nicely framed. But to be fair this is still another awesome shot from you =D

30 Mar 2007 6:18pm

@Wayne: Thanks Wayne - I took many shots and most were the very perspective you are speaking of and I was never quite satisfied with the balustades appearance...great to know we think alike ! I certainly appreciate the great feedback - your opinions and ideas are the only way I can improve - thank you my friend and have a wonderful weekend!

Colour blind from Tokyo, Japan

You've done well on this picture. I love the water and the deep shadows that you can see there. The fact that the natural framing isn't underexposed and you can see some details really completes the picture.

30 Mar 2007 11:23pm

@Colour blind: Kelly - you are very talented and as such, your comments carry extra meaning! I appreciate your encouragement!

31 Mar 2007 2:46am

@F.J.: Interesting perception FJ!!! Thanks for the feedback!

JV from India

Good composition. You seem to be early riser, I have never been able to get up early and so all I can do is shoot sun sets :)

31 Mar 2007 1:58pm

@JV: Thank you JV! Yes, I have always been an early riser - and now I get super-charged by the different sunrises....
