my entry to this week's friday theme.

a scene from siargao island. the pier is actually a walkway for surfers. the island is known for its surf...but no there was no surf when i visited.

a two-second exposure at f/16 before sunrise. i remember stepping on my reading glasses in my attempt to navigate the menu panel of my camera.

pp work included noise reduction, resizing then cropping for posting.

have a good weekend folks.

Wonderful Long Exposure shot of this evening seascape with amazing motion of the water in the FG. Lovely colour and good use of ND filter to prevent OE of the sky. Beautiful silhouetted walkway and great cloud formation too. This is a well planned and executed shot with useful notes to explain how you achieved this- great work and TFS!



another ist class image Danillo the details are extremley good the long exposure has worked well bringing out the water here
tfs regards bryan

Bonjour Danilo
Superbe photo avec de magnifiques reflets dorés.Excellente idée pour ce thème de vendredi avec un très beau graphisme.Bravo Danilo!Catherine

Hi Danilo,
A wonderful photo. I like the motion in the waves contrasting with the static pier. The few clouds along the horizon are perfectly positioned above the pier, indicating a well considered POV. The warm alomst tabaco color hue in the photo gives it a nice mood. The ND filter helped to bring out all details perfectly.

Beautiful entry with this wonderful picture,
are my favorites in this category, I love
the geometry of the pier and the beautiful skyline.
So soft ... so light ..... so sweet!
Good perspective with the yellow area.
Sharpness and clarity are wonderful.


This is a good Cunejo before a geometrical composition.
Good entry.

boa noite danilo
I love the light over the pier...what a beautiful sunrise so golden. Good perspective and the golden water too.
Maybe I told u before but what will miss is the sunrise...it is an incredible light to see the world...
For me is excellent.
Have a good WE
Um abraço

hi danilo. nice silhouette. good gradients. long exposure shot for a silhouette. normally silhouettes are achieved by a fast shutter speed. but you achieved it here.


Hi Danilo,
An amazing slower shutter for this lovely view,the water effect seems to be as the curtain in BG,the lighting condition is majestic and the over all composition is wonderful,a very well presented contribution to this Friday's theme,well done.

Best Wishes

Perfect POV and wide focal length to get a well composed image, a strongly eye-catching result.
You have a great control of your camera and you know what you´re doing.
I can´t imagine a better shot of that pier and seascape.

Hi Danilo,

A good entry for the theme, the repeating silhouettes are well seen and captured. Your choice of aperture resulted in excellent depth and also helped bring out those nice warm colors. The slow shutter softened the water nicely. Hope you have a nice weekend too.


Hello Danilo,

With or without glasses, you have produced a fine, moody shot of this walkway before sunrise.
The structure produces a super, geometric pattern as it not only traverses the frame, but also tkes the viwer deeper into the shot.
There is a lovely gradation of colours, as the muted f/g gives way to the awakening brightness of the day.

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Danilo
Impressive capture and place
Excellent depth, light and colors
Have a nice Sunday

Hi, Danilo.A great POV for this beautiful evening scene vibrant with seascape colors, and a disticnt mood. Composition and sharpness and good presentation makes this a unique photograph. Cheers.

Hi Danilo...excellent composition with the pier leading the viewer into the shot...nice tones and colors...well done.


Merhaba Danilo,
Grafiksel etkisi süper bir ters ışık çalışması.
Renkler ve atmosfer şahane.


Hello Danilo,

A very nice capture of the sunrise at this pier. A two second expose was just right to keep the warmth in the colour and nicely blur the ocean, yet still keeping the stillness of the BG cloud.
The detail throughout the length of pier is pin sharp. Good PP work and well presented. Just one minor point and I'm not sure if you purposely did so to keep the Pier straight, but the horizon is about +1 degree off level and now I've noticed it, it's the first thing I see.
Still an exceptionally good capture.
