Haven't posted a shot for awhile so I thought I would put up a sunrise at the lake from this summer. Not nearly as good as Bob's sunrises, but then I'm not as good as Bob with the camera! Wasn't much in the sky for clouds that morning and took a bunch at different settings when I saw a couple guys getting ready to go fishing a few docks over and thought of Bob's great pics of his fishermen going home for the day and I produced this shot that pales in comparison. F5.6, 1/400, ISO 200.
Bob's shot that inspired:

The eye is immediately drawn to that red sun, and then quickly pulled across the image to the fisherman.

Very effective.

Thetitle reminded me 'Being John Malkovich' which I really liked

The reflection of the sun intersectingthe trace left behindby the boat on the water gives such a tranquil feeling...The parallel cloud patterns (which are somehow difficult todistinguish at first) in the sky starting from the top frame anddiminishing towards the horizon due to foreshortening,reinforce the sense of movement in the image alsoYou might crop off slightly from the lefthandsideto accentuate the movement IMO...

Thanks Bob, I'm glad you liked it. I'll make you a deal, you keep posting great works that inspire and I'll keep drinking copious amounts of Coke and Coke Zero.:?

Thanks for the feedback Bahadir, always appreciate hearing your opinions. When I hit the lotto and become an eccentric millionaire can I hire you and pay in camera equipment to narrate my life story on the biography channel? You have a better grasp and use of the English language than most! Thanks again.

Great!! Which Efes do you prefer, Pilsner, Light or Dark? Maybe I could order it and have it shipped in special for ya! I enjoy all different kinds of beer, but lately have been leaning towards Darks, but you won't hear me turn down an offer of something else.:G Maybe you could even bring along a couple of bottles of the famous Bahadir wine to share over supper.... AAhhhnice to imagine it for awhile, oh for unlimited funds and time!:-D

That's Barbarian's choice also! Are you Celt oriented, too Hopethat doesn't mean long negligence of Blonds :-)

Then we could discuss which one(beer or wine)existed firstthroughout the human experience...Would even teach you how to make it if you please
