A beautiful sunset makes nice silhouettes out of the coconut trees on a Dominican beach.

This was shot in colour but it turned out as almost black & white. No post-processing except cropping and adding the frame.

Hi Sunil...nice shot...excellent light which adds to the drama...nice work.


Another classical shot with such lovely light and exposure, Sunil!

Great control on contrast captured between the silhouettes of the inclined palm trees against a vast dramatic sky.
The colors are natural and the reflections on surface of water are just awesome.
Great going!

Kind regards,

  • Great

Hi Sunil,
Splendid tropical ambient in this landscape shot. The silhouetted palm trees along the beach are typical tropical. A huge grey cloud is rendering a monochromatic atmosphere. A very sharp and neat image.

Beautiful capture of those tropical clouds! Good use of the silhouette of the coconut trees. Great pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Une photo magnifique.La lumière qui sort des nuages a quelque
chose de dramatique.
C'est comme la fin d'un film
Well Done

Good morning Sunil,

Twilight fantastic tropical atmosphere.
Excellent management of the beautiful light beyond the clouds. vivid contrasts
Surprising blue colors sealed.
Well done this pure polished presentation.TFS


Hi Sunil

Like this almost "B&W sunset!! I do prefer warm sunsets but this is interesting and I do agree the silhouettes of the coconut trees really make the composition! The light streaming out from behind the clouds and along the sea is dramatic.

Like that you kept it natural with no PP.

Nicely framed.
