Hi Les, this is stunning. The colours in the sunrise and the milky water are great on their own. I like the moon but to me it looks just a little too big and keeps pulling my eyes away from the rest of the picture. Fiona

Hi Les,
A very creative piece of art! Nice cast of sunset, I suppose to include this full moon!
A very sharp image of the moon and a splendid movement in the water. The islet is giving impact to the composition.
Beautiful presentation.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Les,
Just the sea scape without the moon would have made photo very special.

Hi Les,
Stunning sunset shot. Great sharpness & framing. Well done.

Hi Les...very creative shot. Nicely composed with excellent colors and tones.


Dear Les,

This is a nice fantasy work which is beautifully presented here!
Great focus and nice management of natural light.
The positioning of the rock within the scene is well thought, however, I might have avoided the inclusion of moon as mentioned by Sunil (linus) too.

Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards,

Hello Les,
I have to agree with Sunil (linus) here... The black rock formation emerging from the water surface (well carried-out long exposure) conveys so much mystery that it did not need the addition of the moon. It makes the photo look artificial, not to say anecdotical (a kind of "cheap" effect), whereas you basically had a transcending image. Personally, I would like to see this photo without the moon (in WS or in a re-post?).
Just my personal view on the matter, of course. Feel free to (dis)agree ;o).
TFS & kind regards,

Ciao Les, fascinating sunset with superb addiction of moon, lovely silhoutte of iland, fantastic warm colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
