Hello Saeed,
I don't usually comment on sunsets, but this is exceptional, the wave and the composition with the thin clouds creating a beautiful image.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Good morning Saeed,
Another lovely waveshot from the Caspian Sea. Caught the peak well with the fast shutter speed. Could include more of the sea and less of the sky, I guess. Very well done. I'm sorry to hear about the previous image. Had that happen to me, too. Can't say I agree with the moderators. I believe that was the perfect nature photo!
Best wishes,

Hi Saeed,
If I remember correctly, this picture is the second in the series. The first one you shared some time back was stunning in its beauty and originality; this one is no less, however.
The ridge of the wave in the foreground is three-dimensional in look and adds a stupendous touch to this picture which could be like any other sunset-over-the-sea routine pictures, but for this touch of genius on your part.
Superb image again.

Hi Saeed, great sunset, wonderful view of sea and sky with splendid warm colors, very well done, have a great sunday, ciao Silvio

Hello Saeed,
Well, well, well, it seems that they were a razia of deleting pictures recently. I also have one that was deleted after more than 6 months on line... I looked at this picture you talked about and it was magnificent. This was a very good idea to show captivity of an animal but... Anyway… This is this great place again with this so interesting texture of the water, excellent exposure and colors. I love this unusual POV and this great composition. This mood is so agreeable! TFS this beautiful picture. Take care,

Hi Saeed.
Once your amazing sea/sunset picture with wonderful warm colour palette, excellent vertical composition, beautiful reflections in the water and wonderful reproduced waves. Bravo, my friend, really poetic shot. TFS and best regards.

Dorood Saeed,

very nice waves you captured in my favorite time of the day. As always thanks for posting these beautiful shots from this amazing part of the world. I guess I will be there about 2 weeks from now if everything goes as planned.

Hi Saeed

Another splendid photo from you, my friend!
This is raelly a very mood shot - an atribute that very few photos can get.
You did a great job with the exposure here and i'm amazed by the sharpness on the wave from the FG.
Also the composition is superb and the colors and tones everywhere are most charming.

Bravo and TFS

I love this compo.. perfect timing of wave and color of sunset is really nice and natural.
Very well done,

Hi Saeed,
What a beautiful seascape composition. The vertical framing works well here. I love the golen colors and tones from the setting sun.
Nice camera work!

Salaam Saeed,
Liquid gold is what this is!
Great PoV and wonderful colours.
But I especially like the way the reflection meets up with the crest of the wave. Tfs, Jay.

The dramatic colours and yet peaceful mood of this are such opposites that they create a magnificent balance. Exceptional composition both on the thirds and with a fabulous diagonal!

Bonjour Saeed!

Une superbe composition avec de belles couleurs. La prise est très agréable à regarder.

Merci pour l'envoie et au revoir...JP

what a dream shot my friend . very dramatic color and composition . I love it

Hello Saeed,
That wave is sooo well captured, impressive!
Usually photographers are satisfied in capturing a sunset like this, you wait for something extra to happen and you succeed, very well done!

Hi Saeed.
beautiful light and contrast. The water looks almost like quicksilver! It has an unusual smoothness to it. Lovely mood you've captured. Well done.
Regards, Steve.

Hi Saeed

This is a wonderful shot with such warm colours and that amazing molten metal like appearance of the waves and the water surface. The details are great and the lighting was well controlled by means of the f/6.5 and 1/1600 combination.

Just one thing I need to ask you. You say you took this while swimming in the Caspian Sea. Do you actually mean you where swimming with your camera or is that a stupid question?

Well done MF and TFS.
