[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is experimental. I was playing with an ordinary beach/water image from Cuba and decided to alter it. Using Photoshop layers and filters, I brought out the clouds and then added the lens flair for added effect.

Normally I don't do heavy post processing on my images, but once in a while, you have to put your hair down and go nuts.

Some people will love this and some will hate this. I don't care, it is still mine!!

Hi Sunil

Love the repetition of the circular lens flare shapes. Fantastic colour, sharpness & saturation in this superb sunset. Nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the orange sky & blue sea. Tfs!

Bom dia Sunil
Really like this scene, enriched by circular reflections of light that give charm and originality to the photo.

Let your hair down Sunil......you go bro.

I like the offcenter position of the lensflare. I think it might have worked better with a much sharper image..IMHO. I still like your vision in what you are trying to do. This is how we get better. I like it. I let my hair down years ago. (most of it has fallen out) ;)


Ciao Sunil, I like your experimentation, beautiful repetition of circular lens, superb sky, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Nice result - adds interest to a nice scenic shot that is a little dark.
