    The Backside of Sunrise

    Took this image Tuesday morning, looking away from the rising sun, catching it removing the shadows from the hill, thus backside of sunrise. Oh look I actually took a photo of a bird, what is it doing there?

    Cheers:

    Hi Allan,

    This is one of the simplest photos I have seen in a long time...and one of the best. Goes to show you that one does not have to travel to exotic places to find exquisite beauty. A good eye can discover excellent subjects almost anywhere.

    The warm/cold color contrast is stunning, but I think we blatantly broke the two-thirds rule here by placing the horizon smack on the horizontal dividing line, didn't we now?

    JUST KIDDING. Your composition works great! Congratulations!

    I'd clone out the bush in the middle foreground..it isn't doing anything to help the shot.

    Just like others have said.

    Phos/Photo = Light
    Graphos = Writing

    Photography = Writing with Light.

    And this image shows us that beautifully.

    The complexity is in being able to keep it simple.

    One question - I'm wondering why you have it in the format that you do. Is this a decision not to crop? I think it would work wonderfully well in any format, but it would be spectacular in a 1:1 format.

    Wayne: yes I guess, I did break that two-thirds rule, thanks for the comments.
    Bobette: I did the old take a look behind you and there it was, better than what I was taking in the first place, thanks for the comments.
    Donald: answer to your question of format that is a simple one, never thought of it, now that you suggested it I am going to see what it might look like that way. Thanks also for the good words.

    Cheers:

    Allan
