Very Nice! This shot is great! Everything has come together here perfectly, love how the beach in the lower right seems to flow into the ocean, almost a fisheye feeling there. Everythign concidered, this is a great Image!

Just love the colors very much. Congratulations!

Wow awesome shot! It would be a perfect 10 in my opinion if you would have cloned out the white boat that's half way in the frame on the right and positioned the rope on the blue boat so it's all the way in the shot. Excellent, congrats.

Great shot! I am new here and trying to feel out, on what are pictures are judged at. I have not yet submitted a pic, and I am still trying to figure out what your picture has to do with "too early". Help me out here, I am not being negative in any way, but I just can't see it. I love the composition and colors but fail to see the meaning.

12/13/2005 09:37:18 PM
this would be great in black and white or dualtone and working with the grey tones and contrast, the sky has a lot to offer - great composition

Very neat. The contrast in colors is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2005 01:05:09 PM
Very nice composition. I really like the wide angle view and the placement of the blue boat in the foreground. Very nice color. It actually looks pretty late in the day for fisherman unless they are night fishermen. Aren't fisherman usually at work before dawn? Without the title, I don't get a feeling of 'too early' from this. It's a tough call since it is such a nice photo, the best I've seen so far.

Looks similar to where I live. Only the sand is a lot whiter. A lovely photograph. Keep up the good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2005 07:45:23 PM
I like the expanse of the image created with your wide angle, just a bit annoying that the part boat is visible, nice tones to the image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2005 03:32:52 PM
Wonderful colors. Good Depth with the boat in the foreground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

this is well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2005 10:42:46 PM
Neat shot. I like the color. The blue foreground boat and the small yellow one in the middle ground is kinda' nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2005 10:21:25 PM
Really love the colors and the composition. Only thing I would have prefered would have been less lighting, to really show the "too early" aspect. Like as day breaks type thing. Good Luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2005 06:18:53 PM
Nice photo, good use of colours too. Maybe a bit lower angle 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2005 03:18:27 PM
Great wide angle shot! The colors are fantastic.

12/08/2005 03:09:00 PM

has promise - the white boat needs to be out of frame (don't leave objects half cut). Maybe also move the rope to use it as a leading line to the blue boat (get in a little closer.
