[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shot during my weekend trip to Miri- A beautiful coastal town in Borneo. The sunset was stunning on this day and I waited patiently with my tripod and remote trigger to capture this long- exposure shot. The human figure walking into the frame provided some drama into the static shot and I decided to post this one. Captured in 14 bit NEF and processed in LR 3.0. Any comments always welcome and thanks for viewing....

Hello Dilshan

I like the ghosting of the two walking on the beach. Adds movement and great study. Would like to see one with solid silhouettes also. Very well composed.


Very nice Dilshan, great colour and a nice use of a slow shutter giving the ghosts! Very ethereal!

Hi Dilshan,
What a splendid late sunset shot with the last cast of such a wonderful sunset. Almost dusk and the presentation is awesome and neat.
The moving figure is rendering drama to such a panorama.
Well done,

Hi Dilshan,

This is simply stunning. To me the moving figure adds a sense of motion to the entire scene, especially the clouds. The silhouettes are perfectly sharp, and there's nice depth to the entire composition.


Amazing long time exposure which brought 'life' into the picture, Dilshan!

Great sunset colors and perfect sharpness with amazing view.
The beach sand works as a frozen surface, reflecting the warm tones of sunset to its best.
Great work!

Thanks and regards,

Hi Dilshan,
Beautiful sunset nicely presented and composed with amazing colors and light,
Excellent details and point of view,
Beautiful sky and reflection on water,
very nice silhouettes too.

A stunning sunset capture.
A shot with wonderful tones and hue.
Great DOF and amazing clarity.
Great note on this as well, as I was curious as to what the shadow was in the center =)
Anyway, very nicely composed and presented! TFS.


Hi Dilshan, really like the colours and the reflections in the sand. The ghostly figure reminds you that your not alone. Fiona

great moment captured!
