1393rd place (joint)
Last winter I was shooting in the UNESCO Heritage Loreto Marine Park. I climbed a cliff in El Juncalito, 15miles South of Loreto, To celebrate Sun Rise, when I saw a local fisherman taking in his net. I waited, until sun was halfway over the mountains of Isla Carmen, before I took the shot. The little island in front is Isla Mestiza.

Notes: If you wonder about EV-2: I use this setting to give more weight on "Night Colors" in sun rise situations. A bright sky would kill the image
