[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During our last day on the isle of Djerba we had very nice weather: a generally clear blue sky and continuous sunshine. And... a nice sunset to top it off ;o)

I liked the silhouette of the shade and the textures in the sky. Unfortunately, disturbing elements all over the place.

Tech talk


-1/3 Stop exposure compensation.


Adjustment layers for levels and curves, but only small adjustments were made.

Downsized, framed and signed with some home cooked PS actions.

Hi Frank!

Amazing shot! great silhoutte of the shade with the sunset as the background! the shade really stands out! very original composition! we'll done!



Wat een eer van je hier nog eens mogen te begroeten !
en ik moet zeggen het is langs de grote poort :
heel geslaagde foto, mooie sfeerschepper
( 'k zou niet willen vertrekken ... )

Inderdaad sommige delen zouden er beter niet op staan
IMO de blaren op 3u
maar ja ...
je gaat me, misschien, ne rare vinden
maar wat ik zou wegwerken is rechtsonder dat
klein wit puntje aan die stoel.
Het lijkt op een defecte pixel.
Dat kijkt me altijd in de ogen :-)
Heel gemakkelijk misschien : ipv ogniD ergens links te verstoppen het over dat stipje plaatsen ?

TFS Frank

Bonjour Frank,
Tu as judicieusement composé cette image attendant que le soleil passe derrière la hutte. L'exposition est bien calibrée et rend bien l'intensité de la lumière. J'aime beaucoup ce gris lumineux et le relief des nuages. Bravo! Annie

Hi Frank

Fantastic graphism & silhouettes of the thatched beach umbrella, with superb sharpness, and framing. Tfs!

Ja Frank
Dat moet je nu wel missen zeker! Knappe foto met goed gebruik van licht. Het geeft een perfecte mood weer dat we allemaal wel willen.

Tres joli, comme toujours :

Yes, it looks like it must be our last day, and it is a sombre last image.
I like the silhouettes of the umbrella and the how the low sun is leaving such dark shadows.
I would have cropped off the tree on the right though... (IMO)
It is like a silver sky, and those clouds are like wispy feathers.
Nicely done and good memories for you, Frank

Hi Frank -
You choose an excellent title for this image and i like the shape of the shade which look like an umbrella and the hidden sun looks fantastic. My only suggestion is to crop off the tree on the right otherwise your photo would have been GREAT!
Grace Stout

hi frank,
wow!!!really amazing shot...
this umbrella reminds me of a hawaiian dancer :))
high contrast & excellent light management!!!

Hi Frank,
I love that moment, so contemplative - and I would like to sit down and watch the sun go down. Thanks, very pretty, greetings

Haaa, les vacances... :-)
un peu de luxe, un peu de farniete, un peu d'exotisme et une bonne louche de romantisme... :-)

le choix de l'exposition est vraiment très bon, le soleil positionné juste derrière le parasol crée une ambiance de rêve. ça peut être la Tunisie, comme ça peut être une ile du pacifique.

Une très belle image,

Hi Frank. Very pleasant light and mild midtones make this frame pleasant to look at. However I find the bit of the tree on the right edge bit disturbing - I feel there should be either more of it, or nothing at all.
