#321 Believe

Sometimes, you just have to believe.

I was stalking dawn along the shallows just south of Legazpi City in Albay. I found my foreground object, a fishing boat moored just off the beach. Behind it, the sky had started to glow. An orange dawn soon began to overpower the blue pall that had reigned supreme. But the boat alone didn't appear to be a strong enough composition. I took an insurance shot, but knew it can only be second best. Should I change my vantage point? Do I have time? While debating with myself, someone walked into my composition, and in an instant completed my composition. When you're forced to start without a clear view of the end, do trust that things have a way of turning out just fine. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Slightly overexpose for effect, or slightly underexpose for impact. The operative word here is... slightly. Go figure.)
