Amber Dawn by Majnouna Amber Dawn by Majnouna
Fishermen at dawn on a lake in Anuradhapura, with the heart of Sri Lankan Buddhism, Mihintale, looming in the background. You can just make out the dagoba halfway up the hill, which is about 10 km from where I'm standing.

Shot with a telephoto, no editing. The (beautiful) grain is due to the low light, as the sun is still far from rising.

Print available off-dA. Note me if interested.</a>

If this were a painting, it would have been boring. But as it is, I'm finding it fascinating that you could capture this with a camera. The landscape and people got simplified to the point of being almost abstract shapes...and it's probably unintentional, too, a gift of chance or something. Did you expect to get this effect? :)

I never actually know what to expect, it's part of the thrill :D As I recall, the scene seemed much lighter and less brown at the time . The low light had a strange effect on the film, and it looks great!

As others have said, the grain gives it a fascinating effect--it's as if it was painted, not a photo! Very interesting how something that could be seen as a "defect" only enhances its beauty. :-)

I love the feeling this has - as if it's painted with faded water colors over each other.... Or... something like that. It would be as beautiful as photo or painting. :thumbsup:
