Hi again, friends

Here is another shot of the same sunrise at Chott el Djerid.
This photo was taken a few moments after the previous and it shows another puddle that still contains water and different salt crystals that had a much more interesting color :)
Also, the sun popped over the horizon here...it makes the upper part of the frame a bit more attractive, too, i think.

Thanks for visiting :)

I also managed to upload a first part of my shots from Tunisia on my website...if you want to see them before i upload them here ;)

O sansa extraodinara de a surprinde rasaritul de soare, care coloreaza cristalele de sare in nuante incredibile. Tunisia ramane o tara surprinzatoare. Culori ireale...sarea poate avea si alta nuanta decat albul pe care il stim noi.
O zi buna, HORIA(2)

Hi Horia...

Very nice capture at just the right time. The colors produced by the rising sun on the beach are wonderful and the sun, itself, on the horizon enhances the entire image. :)


Mult mai plin de culoare decat precedenta, soarele chiar foarte mic la orizont- nu cred ca am mai vazut asa soare micut, sau cel putin nu tin mminte. Fain si ca ai reusit sa surprinzi mai multe cumorii ale sarii, date de diferitele substancte chimice din compozitie, banuiesc.Si per total, simplu, ca de obicei.
Toate cele bune

Hello neighbour Horia,
Just like the previous photo a very beautiful one. The light and colours are gorgeous. Great composition with the sun just out of the middle. Right place, right time.

Oh yes! Simply lovely. I love the gradations of grey and warm tans. It's a beautiful photo (with a nice straight horizon!!!!!!!) : ) Thanks again for the tip.

Evelynn : )

Wonderful landscape with excellent POV ,sharpness, colors and composition.Thanks for sharing.

Hello Horia,
A beautiful land/saltpanscape shot taken at sunrise. Though the sunrise is a feature it is great to see that it is not the main subject in this image. The salt encrustations look superb in this light and the reflected sky in the middle add perspective and colour to the composition.
Superb shot MF!
Thanks and all the best,

Hi mate,
another simple yet effective composition. Good control over the exposure of the rising sun and the salt in the foreground is superb point of interest. A well balanced image with a very calm and tranquil feel to it, sharp front to back for f/11!
A please to view :o)

Hi Horia,
This one is great if not better than the previous. That extra bit of color adds more to the composition and makes the white salt really stand out. I also like the way you controlled the light. The sun is in outstanding condition. It must be the dust particles filtering the light to this soft tone.
