Hi Rony,
what a magnificent sunrise!
The colours are amazing!
Perfectly composed.
Great details and sharpness.
Rob will surely love this!
Well done,

A very Happy New Year to us. I am now wondering if you get it first before us on the weest coast of America..or do you get it after us? Surely someone will know.
Another fine seascape for Rob as well....I am sure with all of his white coverings, in form of snow, he will appreciate this warmth and glow of you image. I shall remember as well you doing this...and I shall return the favor for Rob, by posting our next summer while you sit inside with a log fire burning :-) Very nicely done Tony.

Hello Tony

Thank you for dedicating this glorious sunrise to me.It is humbling.
The colours are so vivid and beautiful,I love how the brightest rays are behind the silhouette of the land .
The the colours cast upon the water are beautiful,and the contrast of blue and orange is spectacular.
The horizontal layers in the shot are fantastic.
If you only knew how grey and colourless this time of the year can be here,this shot has made my day!
It is a gem.

Immediately into my favourites.

Hi Tony,
A beautiful dedication for Mr. Ivan. Very well captured with lovely colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year 2008.

Hi Tony

Hi good friend Tony,
A spectacular sunrise shot with awesome colours and a beautiful glow. The silhouetted mountain give a fabulous touch and the calm waters presents serenity. Looks so majestic and surely Rob would be pleased with the dedication. Excellent POV to portray this charming scene and tranquil environment and very nicely composed. Kudos. TFS.

Hi Tony.
Pictured scene and captured moment are wonderful. As well as the selection of POV and framing/composition. Especially I like stunning coloration of the sky, delicateness of color tones and impressive dark hill on the left side of the picture. Bravo and TFS. Great job (as always for you).

A perfect picture for a perfect moment. Wonderful composition and fantastic colors. Outstanding work indeed.

Beautiful gold tones in this sunset sky Tony..
A real gem :)

Hi De Ho Tony!
Whooo eeeee! BEauuuutifffulll!!!
Love all those layers of color! awesome shot! TFS

Hello Tony,
The silhouette foliage on the left making this composition looks good with wide exposure of the sky. The light behind it sets the vibrancy of the sky pretty well and hence the golden reflection on the surface.
I like it Tony.
Best regards,

Hi My friend Tony,

A great sunrise scenery of this beautiful place with wonderful colours.
