[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Caught the sun while rising on a nearby hill along the deserts of Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.

I spot metered the sky and intentionally underexposed the photo to make the shadows darker and look like a silhouette.

Processed the RAW file using Capture One Pro with some minor curves adjustment. No PP done except for resizing.

hi Orlando,

I like the landscape, of the strong and hot colors and of the silhouette of the mountain. Beautiful visual!
Great shot.


Hi Orlando,
interesting POV, beautiful forms and colours. A lovely view that delights my eyes. TFS

Kindly regards,

Beautiful ... the diagonal is very attractive to the eyes. Even the the black sucks a lot of energy, the sun, the orange and the diagonal composition are strong enough to counteract this 'black hole.' (This is quite a feat because in a weaker composition, that 'black hole' will really catch your eyes and keep it there.)
