[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When you're on vacation storms aren't a very welcome event. But when they give you a light show like this one, they're almost tolerable. As the saying goes... every cloud has a silver lining.

Hi Werner!

Exposed so well to bring out the most of the sun rays, it's always hard to capture a scene like this so well. Composition including the shore is also very good. TFS!

Best regards,

Hi Werner

I like the wide-angled pattern of distortion, of the sunbeams, breaking throgh the storm clouds. Good sharpness, with subtle sunset colors. Tfs!

Bravo et amitié


Hi, Werner,
I LOVE light beams through the clouds like that. They make a wonderful contrast to all the somber grays of the sea and sky. I like the curve of the beach going into the shot and the way the warm light fills in on the right. Done very nicely on the thirds, too. That's a cool shot. Many thanks and kindest wishes,

Hi Werner,
Another fantastic view over this beach! Well worth the early start to see this. The elevated view has worked wonders once again, I like the way how it shows the natural curve of the beach. Good use of the available light this early in the morning, looks like God was on your side for this one :). Well captured.


you have highlighted the suns rays quite nicely by slight underexposure The panoramic view of the beach is also a pleasant feature of this shot I have heard similar breaks in the clouds described as the opening of heavens windows
warm regards
