Thanks Bob. Still trying to get a sunrise photo like you did :-)

Here is another shot I took in the same day.

I like this second one a lot, the fisher-folk in the foreground add just the right amount of interest.

Regards, John.

Hello Quan,

I have a Olympus 740 ultra zoom camera I use for sunsets and sunrises, I have found that setting my exposure value at -0.3 or -0.7 gives me some really nice rich colors. It also really helps to have some nice clouds in the photo, some of my favorite shots are after the sun has set and seeing the light reflect off the clouds. Hope this helps and I look forward to seeing more sunset/rise photos from you!

Quan,

I agree, the second shot provides quite a bit more interest with the people up closer. Nice warm colors.

Aloha

very nice

these can be greatly improved, by using a tripod, and taking two shots (one exposed for the foreground, like you have here, and one exposed for the sky (a couple stops faster shutter would work)

then taking them both into photoshop, and blending them(using a mask)together at the horizon..

it takes a bit of playing to get the blend to look right...but usually a gradient will work fine..

Thanks everyone for your comments.

Vito, I don't know anything about PS at the moment though having bought a couple of books, tutorial VCD but it is far too complicated. Will attend a course soon. :-)

Rgds,

Quan

Hi Quan Tran,

I especially like the second photo also.

A simple net and a knowing fisherman. Great combination.

Well done.

Yes, the warm colors really work! :-)
