[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
A strange mist was covering the sea, on this evening in Essaouira. When the sun has disappeared in the sea, the sky, the sea, the rocks and the seagulls took an amazing colour orange-brown… like milk chocolate. Yes, I come from Belgium, that’s why maybe I see chocolate everywhere… even in Morocco! :)

Hi Catherine,

Beautiful capture with great mood hidden in this exceptionally well done composition! Well maintained technical aspects in the picture.

Great colors, perfect sharpness and nice POV.
Very well done!

Hello Catherine,

beautiful capture - really different lighting and colouring. Nice composition - it looks as if it's made up of translucent layers of the landscape..interesting effect with the varying contrasts.

Hi Catherine,
Great catch - the birds sillouette agains the light is very nice, as the overall "chocolate" tone. Nice POV and composition.
have a nice week

Hi MF Catherine,

This really is something special. It caught my eye on the main page straight away. Very intense and unusual looking sunset. The mist is a real bonus, giving a nice vanishing point in the distance. Great Job MF!
TFS and have a nice new week!


J'adore cette superposition de tons orangés, très bien vu.
Cette photo est très agréable à regarder.

Hi Catherine,
What a serene atmosphere in this warm sunset shot!
Great golden cast in this contre-jour presentation.
I like the birds in flight and the soft treatment of this misty landscape.
Well seen and neatly presented.
Best regards,

Hello Catherine

I see a straight line next to the highest bird? Is there some kind of building across the way. Very nice colors and excellent POV.

Bonjour Catherine
What atmosphere! To see the sunlight hitting the water while the birds are flyin in makes it a very moody shot.
I would suggest cropping out the first bird on the right to eliminate the building in the background and you would have a nice panoramic type of shot.
Otherwise great job.
