Following the advice of Linda (shelbeesmom) and Hakan (chakko), here is the previous photo with more clouds and less water. As you can see, I try to take advantage of all your critiques. Thanks a lot!

Love this! The mood in the sky really makes this dramatic and outstanding. The off-center composition works well, and the buoy provides a good place for the eye to rest while appreciating the vibrant energy in the sunset. Superb:)

Pues s, es otra cosa. Cambia tanto, que hasta le has cambiado el lugar. La otra se supone que es en Roseau y esta en Dominca. Felicidades. Es una foto para colgar en una pared de casa.


This is exceptionally beautiful, Lorena. You definitely have the ey of a painter and are using it in your photography well. There are so many shades of yellow, red and orange in this image and the tones of light and dark are just gorgeous. the reflections in the water offer bars of shadow and light to balance the image against the silhouette of the marker buoy leading to another further away....and they are sitting on the spiral perched at the intersection of the 2/9 line (or the 1/5 line if you prefer)overall great capture with lovely lush color and depth.

Hola Lorena
Impresionantes tonos dorados en toda la escena.
El horizonte esta bien ubicado, haciendo una composicion muy equilibrada.
