Sunrise Edisto Island

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 28 August 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

Taken in April 2015. I was never happy with this image because I cut off the top and the bottom of the tree. But I liked the color in the sky.

@Shaun: Thank you Shaun. This beautiful beach was greatly damaged by Hurricane Matthew in 2016. The beach has been closed since then. I would love to go back someday.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

you are spot on with your self assessment... the color and the overall composition is gorgeous, but the missing tops of the tree branches is an imperfection, and I feel that the bottom is a little tight but bearable.

@Harry: It seemed to look fine on the viewfinder after I took the picture but when I uploaded it onto the computer I saw it and was really disappointed. We learn from out mistakes. I tend to rush too much when I take picture. I need to slow down!

Don from Spokane, United States

The bare limbs make a great screen for this beautiful sky. The reflection on the beach enhances the picture too.

The colours and light are indeed fabulous! We all learn from our previous photos (and mistakes). Any shortcoming do not detract from the beauty of the scene here.
