Hi OgGie,

A wonderful yellow colour, splendid PP work here, great contrast and very well done!


Beautiful compo, colours and reflections, great light. I like those boats and their reflections, the golden sea and sky and the sun.



Hi Oggie!
Wow!Beautiful composition,colours and atmosphere.

Happy New Year Shogun and hope to see many many nice shots this year from you!! Smile and greetings from Montreal

Hi OgGie,
I have heard of some people complaining of Nikon lenses producing super sharp images. But not me. Superb composition - nice colors and sharpness. Best wishes. Danilo

stunning photo Shogun. great reflection and I love the golden colour that you captured. well composed


WOW!! This is awesome Shogun! I LOVE the yellows and the boats and the reflections are awesome! The only thing I would have done different is possible removed the barrel distortion, caused by the wide angle. But it's MINOR! and doesn't distract from the fabulous pic!

beautiful comp here with the reflection of the sun al :)
love the warm color tones
the repeating patterns of the boats mask is an excellent touch giving this a calm mood :)

Stunning contrast and coloring making a 3D effect; also a good mood photo. I like this flood of light.

The light is incredibly powerful for an evening sunset! Some tones are practically fluorescent we could say!
With all the boats the mood is excellent. I enjoy the experience!

Hello Shogun,
Excellent post work on Manila Yacht Club!
Great effect, sharp fine details...
Well composed and all over well done!
Pablo -

This is a very special picture by its color, lightning, POV and composition. I really like this DOF and the reflection of the sun in the water. The boats make a very interesting compo. Good PP work, well done and TFS,

Hi Oggie,
I love the yellow tomes. it adds very nice ambiance to this already fabulous composition.
POV, scenery and the reflection are great.

Shogun, another great display of your keen eye. This is an excellent photograph and one that stands out more due to the composition of the photo. Excellent choice to go with the reflection rather than the "easy" shot :)

Well done. Cheers, Todd


WOW WOW WOW!!!! This is amazing!!!
Love those yellow colour tones, OgGie!!! I don't think I have ever seen such a breath taking sunset!!!

Very very well done and TFS'

WOW!!! hello OgGie,

Very well done and congratulations!
Best regards, Daniel
