    Default Civil Dawn


    Civil dawn by joenico11, on Flickr

    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    Composition, Feel, Everything else.

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    The Feel of Dawn

    3. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture.

    I love the composition personally.
    The shot was taken at about 7am in the morning. I saw the boat starting to turn. I recompose and take the shot hoping to capture a good reflection. After uploading it, i realized the background feel seems better than the actual intend of mine.

    Newbie here. Would love to get lots of advise *-*. TY

    I like the sky and the composition. I think the roof of the boat should not be overlapping with the mountain at the background which reduces it's contrast. is it possible place the boat higher?? My two cent.

    Nice colours and feel, although I find the composition too tight on both sides....

    Civil dawn is the time at which there is enough light for objects to be distinguishable.To be more exact is when the sun is 6 degrees below the horizon in the morning.
    Hope this explanation helps. *-*

    great colours. you may want to work on the composition as the others stated... just keep it in mind for future shots since cropping would be a little too tight still. good job anyway!
