vraiment je la trouve très très belle!
était-ce posé ou la chance de voir ainsi ce couple face au soleil?
pas plus à dire... juste à admirer ☺ avec un grand merci

Hello Agoes,

This is a very dramatic shot with the figures strongly silhouetted against the awakening sky. Three is a good number for balance and composition, the couple grabbing first attention and then the slope leading up to the horse. I feel a little more ground would have strengthened the shot, giving a better 'thirds' composition. Even if it was not available from your original, you could have extended the canvas a little and cloned in the shadow.

Still, an enjoyable shot.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Wonderful shot!
Great colours and composition.
Well done!

Hi Agoes:

I like the silhouette of the figures and the horse against the painted sky.
It is a mysterious yet romantic shot. Very nice POV. and good timing.

Wonderful picture.These silhouettes looks great with this BG.
Nice colors of the sky.I agree with Royaldevon,it will be better with more ground,but anyway ,the picture is very beaitful,you did a great job.

A classic shot with all technical elements seem to be on their right place, Agoes!

You captured a rare moment at the right time where the silhouettes of horse and the two persons sitting and enjoying the wonderful and colorful event by Nature. The sharpness is nice and POV is well chosen, which was certainly a very important issue in this shot. The available light is use very efficiently. Well done.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Agoes,
beautiful colours and a nice sharp silhouette, well done

Hello Agoes,
Wonderful composition which seems like a painting,the silhouettes of two men and the horse are superb,the BG sun rise lighting and the blue sky with soft clouds formed a great natural backdrop,specially the curves seems like curtain curls,well for me there is no negative aspect to point out,all is best friend.
Best Wishes


Beautiful contrast between lights and shadows.
Excellent POV.

Hi Agoes,
Superb photo with a very interesting composition.
The backlit is well rendered. I like much the dark silhouettes of the couple and horse against the early morning sky. Besides, I think that the force of the image is also in its minimalism which keeps all attention on the scene. I agree with Bev about the bottom of the picture, just a little more of ground and the balance would be perfect.
However, this is a magnificent capture, I would have like to take it! Annie

Boa noite Agoes
Excellent placement of silhouettes, they make us actors and we must believe that we are there and seeing the same than them. you create a wave of colors on the thirds: the dark mountain in front, the silhoettes and behind the amazing freat blue/ little violet sky.
There is a emphatyc sinergie in all this that it is adorable and peaceful to soul.
Um abraço

cantik siluetnya mas agus....suka dengan blue colornya...
