    too much of a cliché? a nice sunrise

    hi all,

    A good sunrise can be spectacular, but to many it is a bit of a photographic cliché. Agreeing with that, I tend to have not too much sunrises in my portfolios.

    But this time it was just too splendid not to share: a glorious sunrise.

    Do you agree or I am just a romantic old fart?

    Wim,
    I don't know if you are a romantic old fart, but those sunrise photos are rather good

    I don't think beauty is ever cliché. It's hard enough to come by as it is... and I think photographing it is ALWAYS warranted

    Pretty photographs. I enjoyed them. If you don't mind me asking... what's the thought process behind the high level of saturation? I'm not saying it's good or bad... just interested in your take on it. I tend to go the exact opposite, so I'm always interested in seeing if someone actually has a reason for using such saturated colors... or if it just feels right. Both are fine by me!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for your comments!

    Shelby, good question. I don´t see my own work as being so saturated. This particular sunrise was very colourfull, but I processed (Phocus, than CS4, about the same settings) it the same way as I always do.

    Do you think this portfolio is equally highly saturated:Isle of Seil?
