About the Image(s)

The submission was taken in the last few weeks with intermittent weather which makes for a more dramatic photo.

Tampa Bay provides wonderful sunrises and sunset. Using the Photographers Ephemeris to know the time and location of the sun in the morning. Your comments on the placement and exposure of the small fishing boat to the left of the suns reflection and the exposure of the sun plus your other improvements will be appreciated.

Beautiful capture of the sky in this image. Your horizon is nice and straight. I actually did not see the boat until I looked very carefully. Have you considered a vertical crop? You still get the amazing sky, sun and boat. Those being your subject, I don't think you need the far left and far right of the image.   Posted: 09/16/2020 15:30:23

In contrast to Dorinda, I like the sky near the left and right edges. I also like the texture of the clouds. Because the horizon is near the center, I like the image cropped a bit from the bottom.   Posted: 09/16/2020 18:29:07

Very nice capture. I struggle with getting sunrise and sunset pictures to come out well. My sun always looks too gloomy. I like Robert's crop, making that horizon line slightly off center. I like the little boat where it is.   Posted: 09/17/2020 11:06:20

Beautiful sunrise capture I agree with Robert's comments and crop I think off center for the sun would be more interesting However the clouds are very interesting as they are and making the sun off center would lose some of the great clouds   Posted: 09/17/2020 22:04:30
