I like the swirl that the light made in the clouds. Very nice, fototab

Hi Niek
This is a good composition that divides the foreground, ocean and sky in well balanced proportions. Congratulatins on keeping the horizon level. We all tend to walk into that trap so easily. The branch peeping in at the corner gives it some perspective. You maybe could have tried to sharpen it a little bit though. Colour and exposure is fine.
Well done with the scan and TFS.

Hello Niek...
The golden linings of the fluffy clouds makes some interesting figures! Nicely captured evening mood, well framed... Good colours and details, nice work on the old print!

Hi Niek,
Thre is nothing better than a sunset on a tropical beach! They are always beautiful, and no two are ever alike. Nice gradient of pastel colors. I woudl just kick back with a big rum runner and soak this up!

I really like this photo, not too sure of branch/tree on upper right..TFS

Niek, Excellent POV, I liked the way the clouds are creating a well defined V shaped lighting effect on the rest of the sky, especially with the neat little blue patch in the middle. I liked your POV, because, on the top right corner you have incl. some leaves from a branch of a tree perhaps, something which I always try to do because I believe that it enhances the whole composition, giving the viewer a very good perspective. Great shot..

Hola Niek,
Very nice sunset and cloud shadow, IO saw many times this effect but I not have photos.
Soft colors and focus, well composed, a bit centered but works well.

Howdy Niek,

When did Georgtown float to Overijssel???

So long, ;j.
