I always like photos which include natural (not posed) action, so when I saw the golden orange sunrise silhouetting the fishermen, on the way to work, I couldn't resist stopping the car. The fishermen are raising their cage (very likely a lobster cage) to check out their catch. Hope you like it

wonderful feel you've created, soft focus on the boat is great. I think I'd prefer to have less dark foreground (either less of it or same amount but w/ some detail), would suggest removing some of the noise in the sky. As presented, nicely done

An uplifting shot - nicely assisted with hue adjustments.

Exquisite composition.

Get closer!! Too much foreground and background. Really potentially nice shot. The exposure of the sun, the light off the water, the silhouette of the boat.. fantastic! But the boat is so small and has so many artifacts around it. Another 75 feet and this would have been a lot different.

This is a very good picture, and I have scored it quite high. The odd thing is that with the sun to the right of the boat, it suggests the end of the day, rather than dawn. That's just a pyschological thing I guess.

Very nice. the photo is a bit grainy and I think it's more yellow than orange. 7

I quite like the image, but I feel a tighter crop would work better, there seems a bit too much shadow in the foreground

To me this feels like it might be a hundred years old! It reminds me of an antique painting, or something. Great effect!

How lovely. I think it would be even better if you cropped more of the beach off - so there wasn't so much of it showing in the picture.

I wonder what less beach or no beach in the composition would do to this. A nice image.. but I think a more drastic crop could further improve it.

Gentle. Nice. Like the composition. I can almost feel the viewer waiting for the perfect image to keep in memory.

too much black foreground, sky is very noisy.
