Hi Erwin.

You have dealt with this scene very well. I like the blurred edges of the frame to match the hazed skyline. The waves are very appealing too, so active as a backdrop to this group of people gazing out to sea. The subtle angle between sand and sea also grabs the eye in a well balances way, neat job. tfs

stv ;o))

Bom dia Erwin,
Beautiful scene of early morning awakening. The composition of the image is charming with a very good POV and excellent depth that highlights the skyline in the encounter with with sky under the first light of the sun.
The human presence gives a religious sense to the scene.

Hi Erwin,
A very moody capture of early morning. The group of people saying their prayers in front of this troubled water is very interesting.
Quite a sharp image enclosed in this beautiful frame to increase impact to the whole composition.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

I like the composition and the space you gave those people doing their prayers, very respectful capture. I also like the effect the morning mist, it add mystic to the occasion. Good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
