[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in November last year, on Ganghwa Island. The inter-island ferries shuttle back & forth between Ganghwa & Seokmo(do) Island. One weekend when it gets warmer, I'll have to go over there, to see Bomunsa Temple, as well as the dolmen stones on Ganghwa Island.

"Ganghwa Island is an island in the estuary of the Han River, on the west coast of South Korea. About 65,500 people live on the island. With an area of 302.4 km², it constitutes most of Ganghwa-gun, a division of Incheon Municipality. About half of the island's population reside in Ganghwa-eup, or Ganghwa Town, in the northeastern part of the island. The island's highest point is Mani-san, 469 meters above sea level. It is the 5th largest island in South Korea."

Hi Chris,
This is a very beautiful sunset!
What grabs me is to warmth of the colors and the unique light in the whole image, the very good rendering of nuanced shadows in foreground and those in the far mountains. The image is lightly grained but, I think this adds some interest allowing us to feel better the atmosphere and the charm of the scene! Bravo! Annie

Nice view Chris - a well composed photo!! Nice light - the image is a little grsiny I presume from the scan as I know Velvia/Sensia 100 is a really smooth film. I do like the grainy feel to it to be honest - just seems to go with the sunset kind of shot..


Hi Chris,
What a stunning sunset capture vith beautiful colours, light and reflection.TFS.

This is beautiful.
You really have have captured the tranquility of the mood at sunset. The colours and the setting are instrumental in this feeling.
There is s graininess to the textures but it adds a timelessness to the shot, quite in keeping with the mood.
