Hello fellow Trekkers...Happy 2009 to each and everyone!

This shot was just taken today! Me and my flatmates continued our celebration at Al Mamzar beach...Wonderful it is as I captured the amazing sunset of Mamzar Beach!

Enjoy and thank you so much for viewing!

Al Mamzar Park covers an area of 106 hectares and offers barbecue sites, private chalets for hire, swimming pool, food kiosks, sheltered beach and safe lagoon, a scenic train and many children?s play areas. Piped music is played throughout the day and there are pleasant grassed picnic areas.. It is located approximately 5 km after the turn off to Hamriya Port.
Being one of the beach parks, it distinguishes itself with its vast space and unique location on the golden sand beach, as well as the recreational areas existing in this exquisite park.

The Park's Beaches
One of the main beautiful and recreational characteristics of Al Mumzar Park being a beach park, where five outstretched beaches are available, provided with watchtowers, lifeguards, changing rooms and shades for beach users.
Visitors can easily reach the beach from many entrances, through gates specified for individuals and cars.

Nice framing shot Mae, I like the selhouette of all the elements in foreground though my comments is the sun is too centered. Try to avoid it. The more you move away from the center the more dramatic effect your image will get. I guess I make a sense of comments for this one.

tfs.........Happy new year!

first sunset of 2009, good use of strong silhouettes. one little thing is the tilted horizon. minor but theres a big room for improvement. compo wise its your choice, to center the sun or not. sometimes its nice to break the rules. comments like this are not to degrade you but seeing your potential, hope you remember it for the next shot.
happy new year! cheers!

Hi Mae, Well framed using the natural fronds above. High impact with these colours. Maybe could consider cropping some of the dark space. Good ambiance flowing from this image. TFS. Murray.
