[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Baltic Sea is the largest, brackish (low salinity content) water body in the world. One of its chief characteristics is that it divides itself into a number of basins of varying depths, separated by shallow areas or sills. Numerous tributaries contribute to its brackish nature. Moreover, the connection with the North Sea is extremely narrow, the shallowest sill being 18 meters deep. This also helps in keeping its salinity content down. Baltic coastline in Poland is 788 kilometers long and is a tourist heaven. Apart from the usual golden beaches, studded with pieces of amber, the windy call of the sea and photogenic cliffs, the coastline is dotted with historical towns and cute fishing hamlets-each providing a wonderful opportunity to get lost, willingly, from the hustle-bustle of a calibrated lifestyle, for a couple of days.

Hello Maciej,
A perfectly composed image with rich vibrant colors and tac sharp focus throughout entire frame. I like the way you captured the sun just as it kissed the horizon. A few waves are evident, but otherwise a fairly quiet sea.
Well done!!

Hi Maciej,

great landscape shot , warm colors.

Thanks for sharing.


Bonjour Maciej,
Superbe coucher du soleil dans une lumière bien maitrisée qui fait resplendir de belles couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Maciej,

Your pictures act an window to the Polish Landscape. Thanks for showcasing such wonderful frames.
Sunset hues & colors cast a mesmerizing spell on all earthly features; more so at sea sides when the sun goes down the horizon. The exposure is perfect & the photo is magical.


Hello Maciej,

Nice presentation of this Sunset. Very attractive and warm color all over. Good sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
Regards and have a nice Week end,

Hello Maciej

You have choose a very fine POV giving an perspective effect to the photo,
with the lovely light and colour tones of the sunset reflecting over the Baltic Sea, TFS


Hi Maciej,

The wideness of the sea is giving deptyh to the composition. You have captured well the power of the waves. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.
