Hi all, I am an amateur. Just had my first DSLR camera 2 months ago. I took this photo in Taiwan. Woke up at 5am in the morning hoping to capture the sunrise. I woke up too early, but got a pleasant surprise. Some how this pre dawn photo came out better than the actual sunrise. No post processing was done.
1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Composition, color, exposure
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
I am still quite unsure about exposures and the use of WB. I used auto white balance for this shot and aperture priority.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
I wanted to capture the various layers of mountains and also give a sense of pre dawn, where there is light from the houses and also light rays from the sun/moon etc.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Somehow I feel like it might have been over exposed. The foreground could have been darker? But I really like the layers of mountains behind and the various tones of blue.
