[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I shooted this picture a day after the "ball in water" picture. The colours are similar, but the sky is different. There are no clouds so the beautiful effects of the clouds there aren't, but the atmosphere is particular, infact the climate was a lillte hotter and there is a little haze and to this is due the effect of the big sun that is disapeearing in the sky!

Ciao Tommaso,
Great sunset shot.Good composition.
I love the colors and view:)TFS

Colors ant texture are excelent. Yes, the sun is too centered, but you can do yourself a workshop with some croping to see how would it look.

Regards, Petru

I'm a sucker for sunset photos, this one is trully pretty amazing, well done.


I really like this picture. Beautyful colors. I actually don't have a problem with the position of the sun. I think its just fine.
Well done

Beautiful sky indeed!! It seems that the sunlight only wanted to illuminate up, because it's odd that there's no any reflection on the water.

Simply beautiful moment captured. Gradiated colors spectrum is very pleasing. :)

Lovely shot!
Beautiful colours, maybe Sun too centered, but on the other hand such framing works too.
I like it very much.

Hi Tommaso, this is nice. It is minimal and striking. The colours are excellent. I would perhaps be tempted to have positioned the sun a little off centre but I think it still works as it is.

Very well done.

Hi Tommaso,
A beautiful sunset, wonderful colours. A very serene and peaceful image, and the inclusion of the bird swooping over the sea is almost poetic.

Hi Tommaso
This is a fabulous sunset you've captured. The colours are just great, so is the DOF. The only nit might be the fact that the sun is absolutely central in the photo, but by moving it will also change the effect of the light in the sky above the sun. Did you perhaps workshop the ocean into the scene? I'm just wondering why there is no reflection on the water.
Anyhow, well done and TFS.

Ciao Tommaso,
Incredibili colori, sono bellissimi. Mi piace molto questo tramonto e gli effeti delle nuvole; per me č una foto ottima, perfetta. Molto buona per usare come screen.

Hi Tommaso,
Beautiful colors, and excellent depth.Good composition.

Excellent, just captured the same photo in NJ last night. I will post today..check it out

Great capture Tommaso, good management of low light. Very good job.

Hi Tommaso,
Beautiful. I like your ball :)
Wonderful shades of orange & yellow, with the sun itself possessing interesting graduations..Even the tiny gulls add to the shot...Very well done.

I am a sunset picture lover, I sit hours watching it and sometimes get a good image, this is one of the best I have seen – congratulations. A wonderful centered piece with a quasi overseen detail of the bird. The good explanation in your note is also useful to get ideas on how to improve or get better sunset pictures.
