I would never have gotten the exposure right with foreground and the sky, I don't think.
And I know I wouldn't be able to do the layers Smile

Just finished reading "The Old Man and the Sea", so the picture represents more than an excellent use of available light (and most probably fill light for the foreground). Interesting that the occupants of the "lonely house" are up early for fishing (?). They say a fisherman is early to bed and early to rise... however a photographer has to be even earlier. The difference being that your photograph shows a good catch and the fisherman may make up lies. Fabulous photograph.

Outstanding composite and composition, with the subtle highlights being balanced so well. Keeps you there- wondering what the day holds in store for the inhabitants of this lonely house.
