I like the sky in your image Pierre and how you have processed the image. Good detail in your foreground too.   Posted: 05/17/2023 04:49:46

Hi Terina,
Thanks for the kind comments. It would be nice to have some control on the clouds with sunsets and sunrises!

Hi Pierre- i like the sunrise over the water: you've caught the feeling of the sunrise very well. My only comment is that the picture seems to need some point of focus- like a boat in the water or something to draw your eye. But I do enjoy the warm feeling that the picture gives.

Great sunset Pierre, motion in the waves adds to the pic, I would probably have lightened the foreground a little.   Posted: 05/18/2023 20:53:51

Hi Pierre. I like how you place your sky, horizon and foreground into the compositions. It almost like layers of earth pudding. Very nice.   Posted: 05/24/2023 09:41:00

I believe that the water texture came partly from the combo of the 2 images.   Posted: 05/24/2023 09:58:59
