[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This almost black & white photo is the capture of sunset over the village of Las Galeras, Samana in Dominican Republic.

The sun was setting behind the clouds and made the image almost B&W, although it was captured in colour. No post-processing has been done here.

Merveilleux ciel et iamge avec le rendu brillant sur l'eau quelle vue avec cette bande de lumière en fond et ce ciel gris, grandiose compo.
Bravo et amitié


Except for the little OE visible at far I did enjoy the picture with such a scenic view, Sunil!
The colors are natural and DOF is excellent.
Cloud formation is amazing and add artwork into the scene.
Well caught!

Kind regards,

Hi Sunil.

You chose a dramatic time to capture this scene, the clouds brew for a showdown with nature as the light is forced from the sky onto the distance skyline. The darkened tones set the moodiness so well, so good you chose a darkened frame to suit. tfs

stv ;o))

Fantastic capture, Sunil! What an incredible sunset.
I like the light through the clouds and its reflections on the water.
The dramatic sky makes a suggestive mood.
A wonderful, fascinating composition. Congratulations.
Ciao! Vanda
