A sunset-picturing spot along the coastal road just south of Batroun in northern Lebanon.
A simple composition presented here , a few reeds standing proud and perfectly still on this breezeless end of day .We were lucky enough to witness the sun setting almost every evening during our stay in this country.
Iso 80 , f/5.6 , 1/100s , pretty much as is pp-wise , added a little saturation by 5-6% , sharpened and a black frame ,
Thank you for dropping in ,

A well composed shot Carol, nice choice of grass as supporting element and it compliments well. The placement of sun and the horizon is just great for me. Well done.



HI Carol,
Another sun set mood but this time its composed so beautifully,the details of FG elements with BG declining sun looks beautiful,the soft golden glow on water surface makes your shot a very well composed one,very well captured and beautifully presented my friend.

Best Regards

Hello Carol,

The silhouetted grasses, set against the warm sunset, make a very attractive scene. I like how you have managed to create extra interest and good composition, by having the grasses graded in height across the frame.
Good, complementary framing.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Very moody photo, I like shapes of the grass, excellent composition

Hi Carol,

Not only the beautiful sunset but you also managed to capture some precious feeling through this exceptionally beautiful composition!

The grass in FG is just amazingly placed and the clarity is amazing as you used every ray of light in making this work a great feast to the eyes. Well done!

Ciao Carol

Fantastic view, I have something like this
your post, beautiful presentation and wonderful silhouettes!
Sharpness and clarity are fine for look at.
Colors are soft and pleasant for look at.
Excellent composition and lovely presentation. TFS.

Best regards,


Carol, this is beautiful ... to me, this shot is perfectly constructed. Love the simplicity here. The gradient of colors in the sky is great, and that orange ball is perfectly situated in the dark area. The foreground framing of the sun with the silhouetted tall grass ... perfect! And your frame is subtle and appropriate IMHO! Very well done my friend.
Cheers .. hope your week is going well

Beautiful capture and present

Hi Carol...very elegant composition with nice soft tones and delicate details of the flowers in the foreground.


Absolutely stunning sunset captured here with mood evoking dusk light, wonderful framing and placement of the horizon in the frame. Love the frame and presentation too with good notes to supplement this great photograph. Well done Carol and TFS!



When I used to live in San Diego I spent a lot of time on the beach watching sunset over the Pacific Ocean, and I always feel sad because the sun is going away. But this sunset is so pretty and nicely presented with good title. Wonderful soft colors. Well done, tfs.
