[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just a simple scene but wow isn't nature wonderful?

Deliberately composed centrally to accentuate the simple composition, and to show off the colours of the sky.

Underexposed to keep detail in the sun and provide contrast with the dark clouds and sea.

Minor photoshop level adjustments only.

Taken at Nanven Cove in Cornwall after a glorious clear day.

Wonderful, simply wonderful! Really good technique you used by underexposing. the effect looks stunning. Congrats,


Hello Doug,
Nice exposure, wonderful colours!
Great details in the cloud formations, a very moody situation well framed!

Preciosa puesta de sol. El día acaba en este hemisferio, y comienza en el otro, Orto-Ocaso, la vida sigue...
Saludos, JL.

Hi Doug,
Great job on the exposure. It brought out the warm colors of the setting sun perfectly. I am glad you mentioned the reason for the central position of the sun. It does create great simplicity in the composition. This is a stunning sunset.

:) Later

Hi Doug,
I agree, the nature is definitely wonderful, especially seeing this stunning beautiful sunset. Congratulations!
