Early morning sunrise, just catching the rock surface which was a bit wet from the waves.

Hi Jacques.

A wonderful moody shot full of interest, you caught it well.


This photo is like a painting. The colors are so amazing.


Good work with beautiful light on stones.

The colours and lighting are beautiful! I particularly love how the orange glow is reflected on teh rocks. The softness of the waves on the shore is very pretty, almost like fog - is that effect accomplished through the exposure time?
Very nicely captured!

Stunning work the reflecting light is an excellent capture.

Great exposure and mood in the image. If only the sun was on the rop right rule of 1/5, it would have been a winner. (could have been achieved by cropping the image nearly square). Lovely dim reflections on the rock surface!

This is just as beautiful as the red mist picture, lovely contrast between the two. Strong image - you shold be very proud of this.


Jacques, the light on the rocks made everything! Thanks for waking up so early! TFS, Jing

Brilliant JAcques, brilliant

Hi Jacques,
An excellent photo of sunrise. The blurred wave looks romantic. The reflection on the rock adds very important highlight to this photo.

Gorgeous...the blue mood is great!
