no filter or additional accessories

just wait for 1st light for sunrise and last light for sunset, you should be able to see the whole "egg yolk"

see my sunset shot

try smaller aperture like f8, use tripod and timer mode ( be fast as sunset last light is very fast )

How about the shutter setting?

Share some tips

There are a few filters (that I know of :D) that are useful for sunrise/sunset shots
ND Filter
work like sunglass tt blocks the light enter into the lens. It is useful to stop down the shutter speed like 1sec or slower to capture smooth & silky effect of the sea

Graduated ND Filter
balance the exposure between the bright sky and dark ground. It is the square/rectangle filter type with HOYA or LEE filter holder allow you to adjust the horizon level easily.

Polariser Filter
Cut down the unneccessary reflection on the sea.
