Goes very well with your description of the image Arati.

Often I struggle a lot during sunrise/sunset on clear day. Handling the light the ways human eyes do is impossible (even HDRs won't help). Here I tend to think a little glow around would have further added - instead of total darkness - not sure whether that would have diluted the uniqueness. I think mind accepts and interprets total darkness as night in your fire fly image but not here even though camera can't reproduce it - just my thoughts..

:) thanks ganesh - i was very keen on knowing how the image goes down - the darkness and the rising sun. to tell you the truth i was surprised at the result. i kept it because i had thought it had a paradoxical quality to it.

this image is as shot - f/11 and 1/8000 of a sec or so at 300mm and i guess that took care of any glow!
but i have a shot from a few second before which i posted in the Illustration Forum, here

Which works better?
thanks,
Arati

Oh, ya, higher shutter speed will render everything completely dark - so I understand this one is as is :)

I have added my comment to the thread in the Illustration forum.

I got it - it is due the typo in my comment above, I really meant even though camera "can reproduce it".
