The entire coastline of California runs roughly east/west from Santa Monica to Port Hueneme. There are plenty of small headlands in that stretch where you can actually look east at the water.

yes, but i surf that beach all the time and have never seen the sun rise over the water. nice shot but it is either sunset or not malibu.


The thumb nail below clearly shows how the photo was taken. "At Sunrise"

Thanks for all of the great comments! It was an amazing sunrise and the guy fishing on the kayak really completed the shot.

I really was surprised this finished second..Don't take me the wrong way , but this appeared to be heavily edited. I originally thought your sun was the way it would appear with the naked eye, but I could tell you removed the effect of its radience with red matching the sky. Kudos to you for doing that. Editing itself is an artform, separate from photography. I think this composition is excellent. I did give you a 6 originally and if the color wasn't so caked up and rich, I might of gave it an 8. Congratulations !

Well lets see, I know at least since 10/1/05 when this photo was taken.

Maybe this photo will help you understand.

orange water is not exactly golden. Did you add color to this? if you did, it was a bad Idea. good composition though 6
10/06/2005 07:54:53 PM
So much potential here. IMHO the sun is too centered. Maybe the same image with just a little bit of the left side cropped out would be PERFECT!

Very nice. I like the silhouette, and the colors are gorgeous. Good choice of lense here, nice big sun. I give a good score, despite the cliche of this shot.

Wow - the intensity of the sun and the colors is quite striking. I love the single fisherman in his boat. The silhouette is so detailed. The shimmery water has so much color in it and the gold of the reflection - WOW

Great shot. I like your backyard. This picture gives me that, as the Eagles would say, peaceful easy feeling.
