From my photo diary & deep in the archive...

This was from my early morning walk, taken at dawn overlooking Thu Bon River, Hoi An when river life had already started very early when the sky was still dark. It's a fascinating place to lazily sit alone, relax by the bank and soak up the atmosphere while watching the sky drama and its tranquil glow.

Exposed on the foreground letting my ever reliable GND filter taking control of the exposure, resulting in the effect that I was aiming for, whilst trying to reflect the true image to maintain a natural look.

Just a simple routine snap.....

Setting: 70 mm, 1/80 sec, F4.5, ISO Raw 400, 0529 hrs

Ciao Abmdsudi
nella miniatura sembra che il ponte suddivida la foto in due parti, quella superiore a colori e quella inferiore in b&w.
Bella atmosfera.

Hi, Abmdsudi.
Wow ...... wonderful composition with this spectacular sunset, ideal the color of the sky, but not least the backlight of the bridge and all these boats that are navigating the river.
Sharpness, lighting, color and magnificent composition; all are perfectly realized factors, in this beautiful image.
Well done. I like it.
Have a nice day. Greetings.

Hi Abmdsudi,sunsets are another speciality of your style with the portraits,and this is a magnificent example,a colorful sky and a lot of dark silhouettes in abcklight very sharp,great memory from your Vietnam trip! Have a nice weekend and thanks,LUCIANO

Amazing colours in the sky and great use of ND grad filter. The faint warm reflections in water are also lovely. The silhouettes create a sense of place and add interest.
