To all sunset lovers, here’s my dedication for you all…

After checking my library today, I found 100th of sunset photos with different phases and faces, different themes and locations, and I keep jumping from my place almost every day around 6:30 my time to get more, and more… and never enough.. I think if I post everyday a collage of sunset, I won’t run out of it, I will probably be 100 years old and still have 100ssss of Sunset shots… Ahhh I will be Set by then :D seeing 10 sunsets in the same time:D …. Or whatever will pass it to my grand grandchildren….

Anyway this is collage made from different shots few days ago from the same place and same time in Dubai, the old port where old wooden boats that present this country are maintained and displayed on the shore… charming place…
Haven’t done much PP work except maybe resizing and adding frames and maybe darken slightly… or not.. Something like that…


shutter speed: 1/100sec
f/stop: f/13.0
Max AV: f/4.5
ISO: 100

(more or less, this was my cam setting for almost all the shots here)

I hope you enjoy every sunrise and sunset for as long as you can and you Like…
And you’re welcome:)

How about an easy Tune?

Hello Suzy,
An amazing collage of sunset shots...actually an indigestion!
Fantastic silhouettes and very sharp presentation!
The main picture is just fabulous with the sun peeping from between the ropes.
A first class artistic photography post.

Helleo Suzy,
What a wonderful collage vith superb sunset.TFS.


Shukram, dear Suzy.
I'm a big fan of Sunsets too. (who'se not)
THE time fof the day to make sometimes fantastic pictures.
This collage of you shows what more can be done with them.!
The choise of orange lines in the framing suits it perfect.
Silhouets seems to belong to sunset photo's too.
Complement for the work you've done on it.
Groeten van Jan

hi suzy
Thank you very much for sharing such wonderful and imaginative shots of sun set from your collection.These are simply stunning and gorgeous.TFS

:) your image is putting me in a very romantic mood. I'd like to be on some hot and sunny place right now. :):):) *huuuuuuuuuge smile*

Ohhh sorry, forgot to say hi...HI Suzz, hope you had a nice day. I really like to watch sunsets...on photos and even more in real. The best sunset I have experienced (so far) was in...(to be continued in an e-mail). ahahaha I can't tell all here on TL. ;) But I definitely need to go to Dubai, because you have fenomenal sunsets there...and maybe I'll get inspired to paint something.

Pure romance in this image...My mood for this image... pure love.

No other words are needed.

Big hug my dear friend,

Hi Suzy,

Brilliant collection of sunsets in different POV.
Perfect gradient colors. A simple and creatively composed.


Hello Suzy,
i am glad I share your sentiment about sunrise and sunsets. I never get tired of them. Just like you I have too many sunset photos. I do like the collage, the curves of the boats are emphasized, colors are warm and beautiful. Best regards...Danilo

Hello Suzy

Hi Dear Suzy

I like the light game on these skies, superb shadows and highlights.

Greet Suzy ! :)

Very showy formulations, beautiful 4 phaze of west of the sun.
Pretty colours and light, simply...splendid!
Suzy, pleases me very, congratulations!

I greet You very warmly.

Wonderful set in golden tone.
Beautiful picture,lovely composition.
Very nicely done.

Bonsoir Suzy,
A peine avez-vous posté ce superbe montage que les clameurs se sont levées sur la plage pour en célébrer les mérites.Je vois que je suis arrivé juste à temps avant que le soleil ne disparaisse tout à fait sous l'horizon, éteignant ces superbes embrasements orangés par delà les ombres découpées.
Qui verrait cette image au milieu de dizaines d'autres reconnaîtrait immédiatement de vous votre couleur préférée et ce romantisme auquel vous associez avec bonheur la musique de Twilight
Voilà des paysages de rêve pour s'endormir bientôt paisiblement, ce que je vous souhaite chère Suzy en vous disant
Bonne nuit
Late, but not so much as to be your grand grandchild

Hi Suzy
You're a very talented artist...
incredible collage

Ciao suzy,
beautifulst style to compose of the beautifulst photos. It compliments The best.....

I have never thought of doing a collage of sunset photos , unusual indeed , i might look into your concept if you do not mind . Great silhouettes well to my liking i like it when foreground objects show some details even against a setting sun being able to catch some details infers good handling of light by the photographer ,the placement of the sun in the individual frames are fine , i like this, well delivered, tfs Suzy,

Hi Suzy
Can't say I prefer sunset to sun rise but I do love these silhouettes, i live on the east coast of England but I am never up early enough in the summer to see the sun rise over the sea, it sets in the west over land from where I live. Thank you for sharing your warm images, the colours and presentation of your collage is brilliant. TFS

Bonjournee Gitane!
Tres beau composition avec des beau coleurs et ombres
Well composed in multi shots but great effect of the shadows and sun
You are brava!

Awesome Suzy! The sun is positioned perfectly on the shot to the right. I am a great fan of sunrises/sunsets, so this is very enjoyable to view. I love the silhouettes and colours here, a really clever set-up too. A huge thumbs up from me :).



Hi Susy,

This is REALLY impressive! I like this style and creativity. Looks professional and certainly worthy of high praise and recognition. Well done, this is awesome. :-)

Regards and tfs on TL,


Bonjour Suzy.
Très belle assemblage qui met en vie ce beau couché de soleil.
Félicitation pour cette belle présentation que j’aime beaucoup.

dear Suzy,
colors and shapes are not there,
not at sunset time, not on the beach,
even orange light and silhouette do not exist.
to be or not to be is simply in objective world.
you do not see this "Phases and Faces" in that world,
but in imaginative space of illusionary sensation.
a playing stage of a fantasy made this artistic proof in your lens.
thank you,

Ciao Suzy, wonderful colage of splendid composition with lovely silhouettes and fantastic golden sky, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Suzy,

Beautiful work you've done here . . Great moment capturing the sunsets . .

Hi Suzy !

An excellent image, very well done and played.
Have a beautiful evening,

I like the idea of combining these shots in a collage...each one is beautiful, but together they multiply the visual elements for a strong and beautiful result. The silhouettes and contrasts create an appealing graphical look, almost like a tangram puzzle. The black/orange color palete is striking and powerful. Eye-catching and well done:)

Wonderful, my dear friend Suzy!!
Silhouettes are very beautiful!
Lovely color tones. Very creative.
Congratulations and TFS, my friend.

Grande abraço,

Hi Suzy
