[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot of the autumnal sunset! This time I tried to have an effect different, so I decided to use my zoom at its maximum 63 mm a 10x. The sun in this way is a big ball of fire, the sky is all a mix of red-orange-pink. I did some shots like this, but for me the best is this, with the sun less than half over the see.

Lovely shot!
Very beautiful scene captured very well. It has great colours though maybe it would've been good to add some contrast and make colours more strong and vivid.
Anyway, I like the photo very much.

Really nice shot. I like the rich golden colours of the clouds. They also form nice shapes and lines.

Well captured and good composition.

Did Zorro make the clouds with his sword? :-)

Stunning sky. Lovely colours. The sun is a bit too centred but it's good with the semi-circle.

Hi Tommaso
I usually like the sunset/sundown photos, but your shot is fantastic.
greay colours and a nice moment to capture this.
Good work

Hi Tommaso,
Beautiful sunset! Excellent colors and cloud formations in that sky. Very well done!

Nice shot, good warm colors and exposure nicely controlled. Would consider upping the contrast a bit though.


Hi Tommaso

Brilliant shot. You have composed this extremely well. Nice colours and use of light. Sharpness and detail are spot on. Well done. Thanks.

Beautiful view,love the cloud formations,with great colour and well composed...

Amazing capture of the sunset, Tommy! I love the lit up clouds and the sun captured at just the right moment. It sinks so fast that it is hard to get a perfect shot and you have done it!

Hi Tommaso,
What a great sunset, very well composed i like the warm colours & clouds,

Ciao Tomasso,
Bellisima fotografía d´un meraviglioso tramonto, che mi piacciono molto secondo il contrasto con le nubole.
Grazie per dare a conoscere il tuo lavoro.

Ciao Tommaso,
THis picture has it all. I like the textures on the water which you cropped half calm and half crispy. The sun from full pink to orange and golden is perfect. Most important with sunsets is the sky. You got it all - dark horizon and different clouds in different light. Fantastico!. TFS. Thomas

Very romantic moment!!You managed to get an excellent shot.TFS and Have nice Christmas:)

Hi Tommaso,
What a beautiful view very well captured!
Amazing colours and excellent composition.
Thanks for sharing!

Dramatic sunset, Tommaso. Nice composition with horizontal and oblique lines. I know you are the "natural" guy (Smile), but I think that boosting a bit the colours and contrast, like Glazarro did, would give more punch to your image.

Caspita che tramonti!!!!
Bravo Tommaso!!

ciao tommaso,
you captured a beautiful view. colours are nice, compo is great and especially clouds are exceptionally fantastic.
grazie e ci vediamo

Hi Tommaso,
Astonishing sunset! Great visual impact of golden colors.
TFS, José M.

l'idea del tramonto è molto bella!

La mia nipotina Alice (10 anni)è rimasta affascinata dal tuo bel tramonto.Ha voluto scrivere una sua critica.

la situazione è quella classica del tramonto, ma le linee guida delle nuvole donano alla foto un disegno particolare.
bravo a non essertelo fatto sfuggire.

TFS mario

Ciao Tommaso!
Bellissimo questo tramonto!! Il sole qui assume delle bellissime tonalità dal giallo al viola!
E le nuvole sono luminosissime!!

Hi Tommaso,

Beautiful capture, nice colours with fantastic cloud patterns. Just perfect. TFS


Ciao Tommaso magnifico tramonto in technicolor, splendido il cielo, meravigliosa la luce, splendida foto, bravo, ciao Silvio

A perfect shot with a great and strong colours .... beautiful moment .... great sunset!

If this isn't THE most beautiful sunset I've ever seen, it certainly is pretty close to it. I don't know what more to say. Thanks for sharing!
