Weekly Photo Challenge : One Shot, Two Ways

This cloudy sunrise taken from Sanur Beach, Bali, Indonesia. Sanur Beach located in southeastern side of Bali, considered as the best place to enjoy the beauty of sunrise. On this Weekly Photo Challenge by DailyPost, I’ve read interesting post about how to decide which is the best approach to capture a scene : portrait? Or landscape?

When I was stumbled upon this magnificent color of sunrise, I decided to take two scenes. First, the closer look of the sun, gave me the strong or more “yang” energy. But at the second shot, when I saw the bigger picture, it gave me the calm or more “yin” energy. Suddenly, a line of poem by J.W Goethe appeared in my mind…”das Nähe wird weit”, means “the near is getting far”. Was heute sehr wichtig ist, kann morgen unwichtig sein. Same scene, different shots, different perspectives.

So…portrait? Or landscape?
