Tongariki sunrise by jViks Tongariki sunrise by jViks
A great sunrise at Ahu Tongariki on Easter Island. It was a really nice morning, although a bit frantic ... I was running all around the place, looking for a good composition and the sunrise was just so quick :)
Finally though, I found a place which I liked and this is the result. Many people don't realize how big the statues really are - so to help with that, that's a horse in the lover right corner of the photo...
In-camera HDR, just minor contrast adjustment and color correction.

Brilliant image ! the horse adds a real sense of scale and makes it obvious just how enormous those figures are.

WOW. Stunning photo. I want to go there even more now! Looks so otherworldly... wow. Also, I thought the horse was a little deer at first xD
Once thing, though, I think this photo would be a little better if it didn't almost crop off the one on the far right, a little bit of space between him and the edge would be nice... but I understand how it goes scrambling around quickly to find the right composition :P This photo is truly spectacular!

Thanks a lot!
You're right about the framing - the original frames are a bit wider, but the final HDR came out a bit cropped... but I think I can fix that with just a bit of photoshop magic :)

Pretty place. Would have been a perfect photo if the technical side was as good as your timing and being in the right place right time. However, I like it!

Thanks! Since I'm always trying to improve what I do, I would be really grateful if you could tell me what's bothering you on the technical side of the photo. I'm not 100% sure myself, so anything that can help me do better next time is welcome :)
