After several days in Normandy, I had the chance to photograph sunsets .... But no sunrise .... Get up early on holidays is not my cup of tea.

During several evenings I watched the sunsets, all different, wonderful show of nature, it is a blessing.

It's not in my comfort zone .... I liked the silhouettes, and I watched a father and his son who admired the sunset.

I was touched by that scene. Looks like a decisive moment.

I used the sunset mode and I accentuated the contrast and color.

I tried to remove the spots. (Never leave your camera on the beach without protection .... the grains of sand are a disaster!)

Some may hate the halo effect across the diagonal of the shot, but i think it works brilliantly.
Excellent sharp detail in the silhouette of father and son, and i also like the tiny details of the ships on the horizon.

Fine composition here Daisy, and a powerful relationship is told by their very relaxed poses.

Excellent work,


Hi Daisy,
A sharply well defined silhouetted lines created by sea, father and son. The diagonal " line of fire" has formed an interesting element of focus as does the soft cloud formations. And of course watch those sand grains - absolutely spells disaster.

All I want to say is that it is beautiful

Hi Daisy

The two silhouettes really makes a big difference. They look amazing against the beautiful sky. Nicely composed.

I don't think that the horizon is level, but that is easily fixed

Bonjour Daisy,
D'une certaine façon tous les grands photographes qui sont ici encore comme les autres sortis de TL ont une grande complaisance avec ton style rebelle et créatif.
L'explication me semble simple: tu as déjà montré un grand tir classique et donc peut casser consciemment les règles, tandis que le reste des mortels ils font par erreur.
Il est tout à fait le cas ici avec le commentaire de Martyn...
Mes regards et admiration, c'est'une belle image.
