[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of interesting object for photography in Bali is the rice terrace. I took this picture in Tegalalang area, near Ubud. I waited since before sunrise to be able to get the ROL (Rays of Light), so can put a misty atmosphere here.

Camera set in manual as usual, with spot metering
Did a bit cropping in post processing and some levels adjustments

Hello Ari - Beautiful atmospheric effect. Good composition and DOF.

What a wonderful shot Ari!! Love your POV here to show the life size. Great capture of light, nice colors and details.

Hello Ari,

Fantastic light, great composition.


Hi Ari...nice shot..well composed with great colors and tones.


Even with the slight overexposure on the sunlit areas this is a great shot with lots of mood.. in fact the slight OE helps set the mood..
Nicely composed - the people at left provide scale too!!

Great shot and a good reward for starting the day early.


wow....amazing shot

wonderful place and shot

The light here is stunning Ari - and the addition of scale by having a person at the top of the rice terraces is a terrific touch.
Well done!

Hi Ari,
An amazing heavenly atmosphere in this rice terrace!
You did well waiting for late afternoon to capture these sun rays and you succeeded well to produce this misty atmospher.
Glorious lighting adorning this marvel!
Great composition with these highlighted palm trees acting like a natural frame to the terrace!
Great work, my friend, you deserve every merit!
