I woke up at 5AM to watch the sunrise and it was totally worth it! This shot was taken a few minutes before the bright sun peaked out of the horizon.

The blur-motion in the waves is coming from the 18-second exposure.

I hope you like it!

Personally, I have a thing for sunsets. I also really like that moment when you can see how the water has receded far back, giving you a scene as beautiful as thing. Which surprisingly, you captured with your camera and made it even more dazzling.

I don't always suck up to artwork and their artists so easily. (I don't write many critiques.) I like to praise when I see something that deserves it. If I would say anything, I might have used a dutch angle - but that might completely ruin the vision and the shot you were going for.

I am impressed on how it stays sharp enough for you to distinguish were the water meets the sky yet it still remains very smooth and appealing.

Overall, nice job!

The photography is excellent for me, I hear the sea and feel the breeze and the coolness of the morning. I want to sit on this chair!

it's totally photoshopped with a brush

Are you always this stupid or are you making a special effort today?

Do you not see the EXIF data? That "blur" is from the 18-second exposure. Stop trolling on others' work cause you're jealous they have more faves on one piece than you have on all of your "art" combined.

Cya.

First of all, it isn't. The only Photoshop work I did to this is setting brightness and levels. Very minor work. Secondly, I think maybe you are the lazy one and you photoshop yours with brushes. In my Psychology class, we learned that people who try to point out others' flaws (especially when the other person doesn't have these flaws), they are just trying to relocate their own flaw. They want other people to notice his/hers and not their own. Thirdly, I think your just jealous of my work. So have a nice day.

Great view! Those soft colors which are fading into each other makes the whole picture feel romantic and moved at the same time. Also the mirror like reflection of the ground is perfect.

After all this is a great photo in deed. Make sure to continue your amazing photographic skills!
