1/10, f8.0, 75-200 USM, Sarajevo, BiH, dawn
Althou one might think so, moon was not added took me half an hour of shooting in extremely cold weather to get a proper metering.

It's a great photo, pure and simple. A big print of this, if you have the resolution, would be a very dramatic print.

Even if it isn't real, it's stunning. Good work just as the sun was rising. Did you plan this?


Bill Houghton March 06, 2005

Beautiful photo. Congratulations. #1150873

Leanne M.E. Boyd March 06, 2005

Gorgeous shot, Edin! Congratulations on your POTD! #1150877

March 06, 2005

While I fully accept that the sun was not added it does appear that it was and takes away form the photo.
Since you had the time would not a closer shot showing the sun glistening off the roofs and leaving a impression of warm people tucked up away from the weather really grap the attention and tell a story? #1150881

Donna Dunbar March 06, 2005

This is anawesome image and congrats on POTD it is well deserved!!! #1150882

Superb! Was this taken on a full moon? What time was it taken, and if available, what compass direction was the photolens pointed to?
Well Done! #1150912

Wow! This photo is amazing and I was totally surprised when I enlarged it from the thumbnail, as the thumbnail definitely does not tell the story!

Mary Lemley LOve it!!!!! #1152379

I was looking through old POTD's and came accross this. Wow, great capture. This exposure is sooo hard. The lighting must have all come together just as the sun was rising and moon setting, A few minutes more, moon is gone, sun is up. Great persistence!!! This one goes in My Favorites. #7129897


perfect shot
