[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was my first attempt at a sunset at Corong Corong Beach. I arrived a little late, but wanted to scout around for a likely looking spot the following day. Although it's by no means a bad shot, and has its own charm, with the black silhouettes and blue tinted skies, it was not initially what I was after.

Blue is a color for calm and peaceful. I do like how you capture those two coconuts in the gap of FG.

Amazing shot with superb contrasts between silhouettes of the coconut trees against the blues of the sky, Chris!

The color harmony is amazing and focus on the trees is spot on.
Well caught mood and charm in the beach photography.

Best regards,

Olá Chris
I like the silhuetes of trees and the misty behind. tey are o perfect silhuettes that it looks a painting where we choose them.
Um abraço

Hi Chris.

the shaping of the trunks caught my eye first, I like the positioning of this. The blue is attractive and dreamy, the hint of offshore isles as your backdrop is appealing, I do like it, very much, welldone

Hi Chris, an excellent shot, one that takes me back in memories to another place very familiar to me. I like the overall blue-black colour pallet here.

Hi Chris,

The distance between the palm trees and the islands is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the palm trees in the shadow. The evening light has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Beautiful silhouettes of "dancing trees", I like two dominant colours: blue and black, nice blue hour atmosphere

Hi Chris,
A splendid blue cast in this tropical beach capture. Beautiful palm trees in semi-silhouetted presentation creating an agreeable line up with a considerable depth for the horizon.
A very neat image and an original blue atmosphere!
My best regards,

Hi Chris, I cannot recall ever seeing a shot like this before;beautiful silhouettes against beautiful shades of blue.
It may not be what you were intending but this is a shot to be proud of!
I like the inclusion of the people with their boats.
