Sunrise in Hauraki Gulf
Oh Jannie...why can't I be there with you, shooting this lovely scene! Excellent work, superb sharpness and I love the rippling waves. Well done, even in low light, it's sharp as it can be. The sailboat really makes this work well!

You captured the real charm and mood from this peaceful moment, and how you caught the colorful reflections on the surface of the waters, is amazing!
The placement of boat within a natural frame, is doing wonders here. The colors are original and clarity is amazing. The tree and the bridge working as an "extending arm" also enhance the overall beauty of the work.
Have a nice start in the week!

Good Morning Janice,
It is a lovely time of the day to capture, as the sun opens its eyes, casting amber on the sky, as it awakes, and there is no noise in this low light.
You have produced a shot of amazing calmness; the warm light, the gentle ripples, the stationary boat, all contribute. I might have cropped the gentle wave in the f/g, just to emphasise the stilness.
Whatever, the sharpness and the mood are excellent.
My warmest regards,

Its a bit cold for sunrise shots these days - its amazing how the same view can look so different, I like the blue tones of this shot which give it a chilly morning look and the composition is spot-on

Peaceful view on this sunrise.
You captured nicely the quiet mood of the scene. I especially like the bluish tones, the shivering of the wavelets, the effective perspective beginning with the small warf, crossing the boat and leading the glance towards the far mountains. Superb image! Annie

Hello Janice :)
Miraculous morning...water and lighted up through the rising sun sky.
Beautiful colours and they create beautiful light fantastic effect.
It pleases me very...I congratulate splendid formulation and realization.
With best wishes.
KIA ORA !!
Janice this is lovely dont think I have seen this photo before. What I like the most is the capture of the morning glow and its reflection on the water, and also the ripples on the water and the movement of the water in the foreground.
BUT so unusual for you to get up so early my friend!

Janice, Gorgeous sunrise! I really like the ripples in the water. They sort of hypnotize me... and I could watch it all day. It's fortunate that the boat was there too.
I can't think of anything that I could possible change in your shot!
