Hello Allan!
Great colours in your composition!
Lovely sky and nice refexion!
Good perspective!
Excellent done!

Hi Allen,
Wow, lovely sunrise!! I like the silhouettes against the gorgeous colours of the sky and the reflections on the water are stunning! Well done and TFS
Cheers Tina :-)

I would certainly wake my lazy butt up at 4:30 AM to see this almost every morning :) This is just gorgeous because the strong heavy silhouetting of the tree, the wood post, and the tiki pavilion make the reflections on the water as well as the sky just pop out. It almost gives it a slightly abstract quality, with all the shapes made with the outlines and all the rich colors. Really good metering and exposure with a nice contrast between the orange and pink and blue. Very good detail and clarity and the silhouettes are so sharp. I find though, that the composition could be improved a bit. I think it's because the tree and the post and tiki hut are spaced equally from the edges of the photo, not giving enough balance, so there's this negative space at the center that creates a certain tension between the hut and the tree when they are supposed to be unified a bit. Otherwise a beautiful and dramatic shot. I can't imagine how nice the sound of the little lake waves lapping the shore is. TFS!

Hi Allan ,
Wonderful composition. The composition is well balanced and the colours are so rich and vibrant.

Hi Allan, gorgeous, in fact, it's spectacular and I broke my 1 photo per section 'rule.' Everything's sharp, focused and clear, beautiful color. TFS.

wow..........ang ganda ng kulay.......nice composition

Hello Allan,
Often sunrise are so much better than sunsets, the reason why sunsets are more famed is everyone is awake to watch!
This is wonderful by all measures!

Hi Allan,

5:00 AM? . . It's so beautiful early morning - calm and quite. The sun may not rise yet, but the light is there. You did great capturing this moment.


Allan, the colours are very eye-catching.
Excellent and delicate silhouette details here (especially in the thatch roof on the right).
Lighting is very well exposed for and captured.

Well done.
Best regards, Daniel

Hi Allan,

Super colours Allan,

The early morning colours as you know are allways better than evening.
It must have been a wonderfull campsite.

Hello Allan,
The world belongs to the people who rise early. Here is, a beautiful example.
A photograph which brings serenity, beauty and gives to reflect on the beauty of our life and our natural mother offers us if one takes time to contemplate it and to respect it.
Marvellous colors which announce a beautiful day on Philippines. I like the silhouette tree and of the pagoda. A super place to make camping,
Best regards.

Simply WOW!

hi Allan...

nice compo and colours.


What a great dawn! Love the colors.

Wala na gid ya tulugay na?


Hello Allan -
what a homesick subject - YES I want to be there!
I'd like to see more of the beautifull blue sky rather than the black foreground - otherwise a perfect compo. TFS Thomas
