[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I captured this sunset in Goa last year.
This one's out of the huge collection of sun sets and sun rises of Goa.
I tried fixing the burnt patch but had a hard time doing so since the rest of the picture is not very well lit and so could not compromise on light.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Kirti,
Outstanding sunset shot with such glorious colours and sharp details. The setting sun really does create a visual impact here. Superb view of this lonely and romantic beach. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hello Kirti,
This is a very tricky kind of shot from the direct sun on setting! The only thing that can minimize the burnt either wait for the setting sun get behind more on the thicker clouds or using CPL/Grad.ND but the best is not to have direct contact because will cause UO on the image! just sharing my thoughts only!
many thanks for the sharing

Bellissimo paesaggio marino, ottimi POV e composizione, buona l'esposizione nonostante la grande difficoltà di contrasto di luce, ottima nitidezza, un'immagine di grande atmosfera con le nuvole attraversate dai raggi di sole, belli i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Brother Kirti,
Firstly Wellcome back! we missed you! Another excellent landscepe with wonderful light diffusion beetween clouds, nice reflections and beautiful seascape in sunset my friend! All are wonderfull! TFS. Cheers,


I like the colour tones in this sunset image, Kirti. They are so different.
The layers of waves in the foreground, illuminated by varied intensities of the setting sun, are also a very beautiful part of this well composed shot.

Hallo Kirti
This week time is critical; however...............................This is a very bright and golden coloured sunset. The display of different layers of colours makes this an interesting photograph. The layers of sky, clouds, rays of light, ocean and seashore is really great. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.

Nice to see another post, Nupur didn't see you doin' it, or what?
Good you did not patch it up, coz it's great the way it looks!

Hello Kirti,
Normally I'm not an amateur of sunset-pictures. But I have to admit that the color-range here is just superb and your composition excellent. And having been taken in Goa, that makes me already dream.
Thanks also for your critique on my flowers. It made me smile, because I really didn't know where to focus and finally made the other choice you would have done ;-)
Best regards
