[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took this shot early one morning in the grounds of the hotel a few days ago when on holiday in Gumbet, was up quite early and took this just as the sun was rising, I was surprised how calm the sea was most days.

Shot in RAW.
Straightened horizon.
Increased saturation slightly.
Added a border.

Well done. Regards.

Hi Derek,
stunning shot and presentation. I truly like the wonderful mood you managed to create here, with this fine composition and its sense of peace and silence. The pedal boat is so well placed off center and offer and it gives a nice focal point leaving enough room for the eye to start and discover the amazing colors, very warm and delicate. Great job indeed, I like it a lot!
Thanks and regards,


ciao Derek..
beautiful atmosfere.. poetic composition.. light is excellent!
cromatic effect of the sunrise makes everything sublime!
ciao Marco

Hi Derek..this is an excellent composition with great light and tones...nice work.


Superbe photo! Lumière magique pour cette image qui allie poésie et beauté.

Hi Derek,
I could say so many wonderful things about this shot, but I'd run out of characters! This is simply perfect. Very soft and pastel-like tones in the sky and the boat is extremely well composed on the still water. A very impressive post.

Hi Derek

Absolutely fascinating morning composition. The mirror like surface and the plae colors create a great image to look at. The lone boat with its strong colors is its very strong asset.

Have a good day and TFS
