And so it happened. If you have to do something you have to. If you need a purple sun you have to get one. Sometimes you have no control over certain things. Some people needs nice cars other pretty houses, clothes or jewellery. All I need know is a purple sun. So I made one.

very cool effect.

My dearest Annette..

Angel you are so romantic in your postings of
the sun...howerver its still yellow.. the mood in here is purple ..OH yes ! lol..
If you dont try you never know ...and you have the courage to try .. but I liked the previous more.. more natural..

A little heavy compo.. but intresting !


I'm not much a fan of purple, but this works for me. It's quite loverly. It reminds me of something for the stage. Nice palm tree frames.

This reminds me of one of those cheesy postcards from Hawaii in the 50s. I like this effect!


Very impressive effect and color!

  • Great

A wonderful magenta-red sun, nor I saw Ni. A marvelous photo succeeded.
Best regards

You seem to love purple!
Here it's the evidence!
I find the idea of interest but i'm afraid the treatment attack seriously the texture of the water especially! It's very blury.
I don't know how you did... I wondering if the "curves" options is less destructive they the "color adjust" in Photoshop. I know i already like an idea and change of idea cause it give that effect... It's curious but some colrs react less well to an adjustement... Especially when we are un low light like the sunset...

I like the effect Annette. A perfect ending to a Burgundy day. Very original. Mike
