Hi Tony . Just the right name for this .such beautiful colours and detail and shades in the clouds. we have had some very nice sun sets after bright days. you are moving into Autumn and us into spring. well done TFS.

Hi Tony,

Beautiful colours here and strong black tones in the foreground. I really like the blues of the sea, with the colours reflected in the pools of water in the foreground. A very fresh image and a very effective sunrise.

Hello Tony,
what a beautiful sunrise!
Just perfect for Horia :-)
Magnificent colours and amazing lighting.
Excellent exposure.
Very well done,


Hello Tony,

Thats not a simple sunrise. Thats a very beautiful sunrise. Take for instance the colors at the sky, just above the horizon. Splendid. The contrast between the BG and the FG is amazing. Just B&W. And what about the red glow at the little waterpools at he Fg. Oh no, it is not a simple sunrise. It´s wonderful. Greetings and TFS BOB

Hi Tony!

I'm sure he will...! How could it be different. It's magic, it's nothing else than a simple sunrise, therefore it's magic and beautiful. But it also needs an experienced and artistic eye like yours to obtain such a result.

Thank you for that moment of happiness!

Kind regards

Hi Tony

A truly beautiful shot and i'm honored by your dedication!
I will take great pleasure adding this shot to my personal theme :)

It really was a gorgeous sunrise and you did excellent to wake up and go to the beach for it. The colors everywhere here are amazing!
The fine graduation of tones in the sky is very well complemented by that lovely reflection in the FG.
The clouds also are fantastic and add a lot to the already wonderful composition.
Overall: great work my friend! Thanks a lot! ;)

Bravo and TFS

ahhh Horia is also good at this type of image as you did so well here and makes a nice dedication. A wonderful sunrise, which almost calls for Champaign and Eggs! It is a done deal!

Hi Tony,

Beautiful colours with a simple composition makes a very good photo.
The sky on 2/3 is also very good.

Regards Gert

That is a wonderful sunrise. The colors are amazing. TFS.

This is a classic, Tony, but definitely a grand classic. It is very simple at first look then we discover the mountains at the horizon, the rocky shore, the waves and the beautiful clouds. Thanks again for a beautiful landscape of your country!


Hello Ho,
A perfect landscape shot with excellent details, vivid colours, nice framing. TFS. Regards,

Hello Tony,
Nice to see another very beautiful sunrise shot. Fantastic colors, composition with dark seashore great. POV and focus also great. This is very nice dedication our joint friend Horia. Thanks a lot for sharing. best wishes
your friend, Ahmet

Hello Tony,

Simple maybe ant yet so colorful. The vibrancy in the sky balances with the texture in the foreground. Simple shot with horizontal perspective but with maximum impact in the composition.

Well done and best regards,

Hi Tony,

Simple but oh so beautiful! The colors are magnificent. I love the bright sun, the reflections in the water and the wonderful clouds.


Hello Tony,

I have already written a critique on this and I am at a loss to know where it is!

I really like the colours which are so rich and deep! The sky and the sea seem to mingle!
Lovely composition! You are a master of seascapes now!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Tony, fasinating sunrise with superb colors, splendid light, lovely dedication to our friend Horia, and excellent details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Tony,
I notice you have sunrise at 5:03 AM and this must be as close to midsummer as you get!
By the way, well done to be on the beach at that time...
Wonderful colours and the layered composition works so well here, sharp fine details!

Splendid Tony,
just splendid !!! I love warm colours and fine composition,

Hola Tony, tu Español seguro que es mejor que mi Inglés... Yo hablo habitualmente el Catalán y tambien se algo de Francés, pero el Inglés me cuesta jejeje.
Tu toma, como suele ser habitual, es espléndida.
Los reflejos del primer plano fabulosos y el agua azul del plano medio muy atractiva. Llama la atención el fuerte contraste de los colores fríos y cálidos, así como la limpieza de toda la imagen.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

Hello Tony,
I can imagine watching this sunrise develop with a nice cup of coffee in my hand. The wonderful composition with the clouds gives the feeling of on-going change with one minute being different from the next and its this dinamism that this image has that makes it attractive.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Hello Tony, awesome colours and fantastic light. The gradation works well. The sharpness of the cloud details contrasts nicely against the lovely colours. What a beauty. The reflections on the beach helps to make the dark silhouetting interesting. tfs Rgds Necip

Hello Tony, great sunrise shot my friend, very well composed and done, thanks again!


Hi Tony

Beautiful colors that you have captured in this picture! I really like the dynamics of the water - unsettled afar and still and glassy in the foreground. Very texturally rich foreground makes it well composed and leads into the image.

TFS and Best

Hi Tony.
Not simple, simply wonderful picture of the beautiful sea(sky)scape. Amazing composition and colour shades, impressive cloudy sky and attractive full of reflections ground. DOF and sharpness are perfect too as well as nice framing and composition. Excellent job and kind regards.

Hi Tony,
Simply, but beautiful. The warm mood is perfect. I like the reflection of the colored sky the the many puttles in the FG. Nice texture in the clouds and great work on the exposure.
