Comment from Malmax

This is a perfect entry for the competition and a beautiful view of the beach before sunrise. The colors are soft and the couple and other details are softly illuminated yet remain dark and just right for this time of day.
Excellent perspective with wonderful DOF. My winner!

Comment from Stringbean

So much beauty captured in this landscape scene before sunrise. I like the feeling this photography gives you .....of calm, peaceful, and serene setting. It is my favorite time of the day....even though I have to force myself to set the alarm.....most beautiful of colors captured. A good perspective and point of view. Good balance of tones and shapes. Also a good balance of lights and darks. Outstanding photography and thanks for sharing. I love this!

A stunning picture of a sunrise on Samui Island with the young coup;e in silhouette walking hand in hand along the water's edge as they wait for the sun to rise above the distant misty pearl grey hills & fluffy clouds above them & sky behind glowing orange & pink, these clours then reflected onto the still water's of the bay framed by the loungers on the left & the Palm trees on the right. Beautiful artistic composition, framing & soft natural lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.
Good luck in the contest.

Comment from El-mundo

Some people really are motivated aren't they!! I don't know if I'd manage that early every day on holiday lol. A superb capture with brilliant clarity and amazing long DOF, that captures the whole, quite vast scene in the epitome of the title, mainly due to the amazing hills and mountains shrouded in the pre-sun mist and glow which you have caught superbly and with great timing, showing the clouds lingering above them in the golden sky that lightens then darkens again creating great tones and shades. The golden and almost solid looking sea shows great detail also, as it reaches the sand on the beach in the fore with merely a splash. The couple, though small, are captured clearly and centrally, and the sunbeds give good perspective and an inkling of the day ahead. Wonderful work and best of luck in the polls! :)
