You love this one?! I, too! It's great, the reflection of the sun in the water, the black shapes of the people and the best, the soft-looking water.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful... nice work, Saeed. Excellent warm tones and a magnificent PoV. The beam coming from the sun is a tad disturbing, but... who cares ?
TFS, TFS² (truly fantastic shot).

Hi Saeed,
Love this too, awesome composition and colours, amazing!

This one is amazing saeed, its dramatic and extremely sublime. The wave rising and seeming to engulf those at the background is imaginatively and innovatively captured. The burnt hues add so much finesse to this shot which also has some great use of lights. Overall a great composition with good pov and dof. Great innovation. A bold attempt.

Hello Saeed,
This is a wow image!
Beautiful colours and amazing lines are captured, scenery is well framed and presented in an attractive composition!
Pablo -

WOW, congrats, mate.

Salam saeed
Ecxellent work,Your nice photo attracts me for a long time!
Well done.

Wow, this is fantastic and a little surreal. You are a master of original sunset shots.

P.S. pts later

I am surprised that at 1/2000 the photo would come out so silky smooth. Beautiful photograph. Thanks for sharing !!


Hello Saeed,

great capture of seascape, action and sunset mood.
Wonder how it would look like without the reflecting sun on the waters surface. The smooth surface could be a huge cloth of silk moving in the wind. Very dramatic compo - TFS Thomas

Hi, Saeed.

Stunning! The water looks so smooth..almost unreal. Beautiful warm colors. Very well composed and good use of light. Sharpness is great. TFS


P.S. Thanks for visiting my gallery, much appreciated. (",)

Hi Saeed, wonderful mirage, great composition with the sun and sea, splendid colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

The title is pleasant and very representative..

Great job..

Beautiful colours, and a great composition. The sky is so warm and red, and the sun reflected in the water. The waves look amazing. Very soft but very high. I am surprised you were able to take this and not get very wet. Super shot

Hello Saeed,
Totally captivating. The warm colors, water and silhouettes are so impressive. Excellent and TFS Julie

Your sunsets are spectacular.
Great shot, plenty of ignited color, good composition and perfect frame. It gives to a sensation of majesty and mystery.
Good work

Beautiful colors in the sky, I like the how you captured the refelctions in the water. You can see the other people swiming and the hills in the BG all of this adds to the depth of the shot. The water looks like glass, good clarity and sharpness.

A very nice one! We feel like we could touch the water. The colors, those reflects... ***
In my point of view, the heads oh those people are not useful in the composition.

Salam Saeed...

WOW, such a great point of view, I really like this one a lot. Your water looks so so so smooth and the silhouette of heads is awesome! The reflection of the sun on the water is a great touch. Really wonderful image!

Hi Saeed,
You're not the only one who loves this photo. Awesome. Everything's fantastic on it. I myself should have given a black frame to the image, but this is personal and in this case not so important. Big congrats, my Friend, for this fantastic shot. Regards, László
