Holy Bejeezus, drakblake! That's fantastic! I can certainly see that one in a gallery, with perhaps a little titanium white painted on top of the highlights and a dimmed spot light illuminating the scene.

Ehi, è stupefante paisà!!! Anche se vivo a Roma, io sono più abituato alle albe sul mare della mia nativa città adriatica, però mi rendo conto che l'abilità tecnica e il valore artistico è degno dei migliori "macchiaioli". Bravissimo!!

Hey, this is stunning, country-mate! Even if I live in Rome I'm more accustomed to the sunrises on the sea in my home town on the Adriatic Sea, but I realise that the technical skill and the artistic value is comparable to the best "macchiaioli" masters (an Italian painting movement in Tuscany, first half of the 19th century, anticipating Impressionism with an almost similar approach through colours stains). Very bravo!! (to expess superlative of the adjective bravo)
