Hi Alex,
Wonderful sunset, the rays of light are very well captured and the reflection on the clouds makes this image an special one. Good composition.

Hello Alex :o)
Never mind it's the 287th sunset. I love sunset and this one is particularly mysterious, full of feeling, mood ... excellent ! Not really the day, not really the night ... bravo !

Hi Alex,

Wow, amazing! Love how the sunrays break through the clouds. Great compo and POV. The light is beautiful too, the overall tones are almost soft with the sunny touch in the middle. Perfect frame. Excellent Alex, thanks for sharing!
Greetings from Bianca.

Nice shot and dramatic. Yes, you are right, the sunset is one of the over-photographed subjects, so getting a really good one is a difficult task.

Beautifully composed sunset. The balance in this image is very good and the soft colours give a nice and pleasant view. The sunlight filtering through the clouds create an almost spiritual view towards the ocean. You managed light very well in this shot and composed a good image with top sharpness and saturation. Nice work Alex.

Hola Alex,
precioso sunset,
tonos y pov, magníficos.
excelente trabajo,

Morning Alex,
Sure you can find that much sunsets - because it is always a breathtaking event if the setting sun colours the clouds and the sky.
Glad it did not hold you back to upload #287!

You are a great photographer. Congratulations, and thanks for the beautiful sunsets and other extraordinary photos you have posted.

Hi Alex,

The panoramic format is very suitable and the exposure looks spot on.

Well done.

Wonderful sunset.
Once I walked along the cost line there from Jaffa to my hotel in Tel Aviv.
Thanks for bringing that memory back
