I took this sunset in Tobago at Coco Reef. You could pretty much guarantee a great sunset each evening, but this was the most dramtic cloud formation I saw. Each day a number of sailing boats came and went, so the composition turned into something of a lottery!

Summer's over for us. Must be nice for you. Well done with this scene. Good work.


Beautiful and peaceful picture Julian, lovely silhouettes of the boats!
Perhaps a less close crop shows more of the environment of your boats, but the photo is good as it is, too! Well done!

Nice color and clarity. Very well captured.

beautiful backdrop for the silhouetted sailboats. the overall photo is very serene and relaxing. good job!

Magnifique!!!!!!quel ciel, c'est spectaculaire!

This is a perfect shot, that could be on the front on any travel magazine. Fantastic.

What a faboulous shot and scene! I like very much the soft colors of the sunset and the black shapes of the boats! Very fine shot! Added to my favorites! TFS!!!

Good composition and nice colours make this an inviting scene.

Beautiful. Crisp and colorful. I would've crop a little from right side and put the right boat at upper and lower right strongpoints.

Hello Julian,
Really nice capture. The colors and reflection on the water are incredible and the sillhouettes of the boats add a lot to the composition.

Hello Julian,

Wonderful, dramatic sunset capture. As a thought, do you think this picture could be further enhanced by the addition of a border? TFS


well if it was a lottery ..than you won big time..awesome photo..wow.

Hello Julian,nice to meet you!!!
Nice to see this exellent job.
I like very much the convinations of colors of the sky reflected in the water in a line with the small waves.
I like specially the boats,i love boats and i think that the pair of boats making contrast with the little brightness of the sun are greats.
Congratullations for this marvellous shot!!!
Wasn´t a lottery,was your eye!!

I don't like to be just another brick in the wall, but this picture leaves me no choice but to join all the other members' critiques and congratulate you on a wonderful picture.
There are so many colors in the sky, and they appear very natural and not artificial. The boats are not completely black - you can still see some things going on there - just the way I like it.
