[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not long back from a long holiday in Corfu, my favorite Greek Island. This was taken one morning from the decking at the beach just as the sun was rising over the mountains of mainland Greece.

Had to be taken hand held as clothes have a higher priority in the baggage allowance than a tripod according to my wife!

Single shot taken in RAW and processed in Capture NX2.
Not much done other than straighten horizon and tweak colours using Color Efex Pro.
Resized, sharpened and added border in Paint Shop Pro.

sparkling like a gem. brilliant capture.

Hi Derek,

I really like the richness and depth of the colours radiating from the rising of the sun. The dof is very good, details very sharp and the colour very good, pov very good but the fg is in darkness and the drop shadow effect wouldn't be my choice.


Great colours and composition. Thanks for sharing it.
Cheers from The Hague,

Boa tarde Derek
great perspective and light.
Greece in its best...always fantastic.
Um abraço

This is my favorite kind of shot, cliche or not. Skillfully metered, artistically composed. Regards Derek.


Hi Derek,
You've really managed to capture the serenity of a sunset in this photo. The alomst flat water, the boat resting at the end of the dock, the most wonderful fluffy clouds all add to the great feeling. The exposure control on the sun is great and that without making the rest of the photo too dark. A really well captured seascape.

P.S. get a gorrilapod for those trips.

What a stunning place .The colours are beautiful.
Wonderful sky. Have a very nice day.

Great sunrise,just love the colours reflected in the clouds.
As regards your tripod problem i have the same problem,it seems that another pair of the wifes 22 pairs of shoes is a better use of luggage space.

I absolutly love this shot!

The colours are so intense and rich. I also love the composition of this shot!

Very well done.

Kind regards,

Hello Derek,
Excellent shot beautiful colors and love the wide and long depth of field...I feel like I would step right into the photo...lovely. TFS

Hi Derek!
Woww!!! What an amazing image!
You have captured a great moment of the day in fantastic way! I like the POV with great perspective : it seems to me the clouds are coming to me. The golden light of the sun setting is fabulous. Very well composed and presented.
Really a wonderful day:)
Ciao! Vanda

Hello Derek,

This must be one of the best sunrises that I have seen for quite a while! The rich, warm colours, emanating from the sun, contrast wonderfully with the darker areas in the f/g. I love how the water's surface appears like glass. Superbly moody.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hi Derek,
Beautiful sunset, beautiful, gentle and soft clouds and beautiful colors of the sky.
Soft silhouettes of island and boats.

Hello Derek,
Magnifique image aux couleurs riches de ce lever de soleil avec ce bateau pour embellir la composition. Ces petites boules de ouates dans le ciel sont superbes avec la lumière qui leur donne de magnifiques couleurs.
Belle prise très réussie.
Merci et bonne journée.
