Hi Saeed.
You got a nice light diffusion with the clouds, and deep blue colours on the top. Also like the small reflection on the sea.
Thanks for sharing this sunrise with us.
Regards, Felipe.

Hi Saeed.
Very expressive picture of the sky. The blue sky clouds, sun beams and their reflection in the water are looked perfectly. POV and DOV are selected very well. Only image of the land is too dark. TFS and my best regards.

Hello Saeed
Another Wonderful Landscape,
Perfect compo anf colors,
Informative note,Welldone.


I would love to see a picture of the mangroves on this island, Saeed. Do you have any?
This is a fine sunset picture from the island. The way the rays of the sun are scattered through a small rent in the clouds makes this composition beautiful.
