Hello Donna!,

If I want to teach somebody about rule of third, I will show this picture.
Nice sunset, you captured it perfectly.

Hi Donna,
That sky is so beautiful!
I like so much the result of the early wake up ;-)
You've got a sensational colours on that sky, and that streamlined clouds on it.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Yes this one is perfect Donna...there is hope in that sunrise....Funny how clouds and colours can add the music without sound, in my head...and I can smell the lake and damp nearby woods and trees...and very softly hear the small waves..and the lapping of the water...all that is missing is a morning dove cooing softly....very nice way to pass along the real feel of the Great Lakes.

Hello Donna,
What a change from the stormy shots in Dec! This is calmness itself with a great winter sunrise over the ice of L. Erie. Your trees make a great silhouette in the composition.
Well done and thanks for sharing this one,

Hi Donna!

Wonderful morning for sure...
Peaceful and balanced. I "woke up" in the office having no sleep at all. Good to see such a morning sight these days, TFS!


Hello Donna, wonderful light, gorgeous colours, nice contrasty detail. Very sharp silhouetting. Interesting pp on the sky. TFS Rgds, Necip

You captured beautiful morning color in the strong composition with the off center silhouetted trees. I love the dark horizon line dividing the sky from its reflection.

Hi Donna,

A beautiful sunrise scenery which is giving special colors to the sky, the lake and a set of shadows to the ground. The point of view is giving a sense of depth to the photo. It is also well framed. thanks for sharing.

Hi Donna, that sky has something very particular, as if it were in love... This picture is perfect, standing very solidly in the frame, it's beautiful. I love the smoke left by the jet at right, completing the lines made by the clouds. It is sharp throughout, you captured a great moment. I am very happy for you and it shows in this one... bye bye!


Guau Donna.

Fantastic picture, nice composition and colors.

Hello Donna,
A lovely view of Lake Erie, so tranquil!
A classic composition with good shoreline diagonal, attractive warm colours to compensate for the winter temperatures...
The shimmering water looks beautiful and the remains from aircrafts leave patterns in the sky!
