[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Can never get enough of Boracay sunset even if dark clouds are hanging above it. I want to PP them out but afraid that it will ruin the shot so I left it alone. Maybe it can serve as balancing element in the photo.

PP: Rotate, Crop a great upper part, adjust levels and contrast, frame.

Hi Lilli

Very good Sunset here. There always a winner in my book. Well done.

WoW! Excellent! and nice landscape with interesting elements, the people, the boat, the clouds, and the colours really well done.

I think it's a very lovely post, don't even mind the clouds. It's nature after all, and you can't just erase clouds when they don't fit your mood ;-) Great shot, the black-red-yellow gives a warm thoughtful mood to the picture. Maybe you should have used in the frame yellow instead of white... TFS!

bonjour lilli
tres beau coucher de soleil,les couleurs sont belles et les embarcations du premier plan donnent un peu de vie.bravo.

You are so right! Can never have enough of sunset pictures esp if they are as pretty as this one. Nicely composed with all silhouettes placed correctly. The dark clouds add to the scene. TFS, Lilli!

Hi Lilli,

Très jolie scène, les différents tons présents sont tellement bien complémentaires!

I lover the black clouds and am glad you didn't PP them away. I think they add drama to the shot. The sunset, is of course, wonderful and so it the silhouette of that lovely sailing boat against the sky. Peaceful and beautiful for sure. I love it. Thanks for sharing...Joan

Very beautiful sunset and silhoutte! The colors are just stunning!

Great picture. I like the composition and the colours very much.
Good Work!

Hi Lilli,
Good thing you left the clouds there, makes it interesting. Good colors and some nice silouhettes.


Nice sunset! I like the blending

Hi Lilli,

Beautiful sunset light here, and I like the position of boats and people for balance and scale in your composition. This image makes me want to get away from the cactus-filled desert for a while.
