[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken at our local beach. On this day & the couple of days before I took this shot, the sunset was really beautiful. The glow was magnificent & the tide was also very low. Thats a silhouette of my son, and I got him to hold the bottle of water to create a sense of heat that came from the setting sun. The dark corners in the picture is actually the vignetting effect from 18-200mm VR lens on my very 1st D40 dslr. It was handheld and the chromatic aberration was also very evident.

Just wonderful, Michael :o)
Congratulations and TFS!

Warm regards,

Wonderful colours and the addition of your son completes a very nice shot Nice work
warm regards

You did an excellent and clever use of the camera´s technical settings and got the most of the circumstances.
The composition is textbook´s.
Using the plastic bottle is not useless, it´s been a very smart way to enhance heat sensation.
I also cheer your son´s pose with his left hand in the forehead.
In short, very good shot.

wow fantastic snap.good one

Keep it up

Hi Michael...
Beautiful shot with so nice colors, composition...
Beautiful silhouette of little boy...

Very spectacular sunset - the colours and light are superb!

Composition works well - placement of your son is strong, to the left 1/3rd of the shot.

Possibly the only negative is the skewed horizon, perhaps if that was levelled out ...?

Rew :)

Hi Michael,
Congratulations for this superb sunset shot!
What a spectacular sky adorned with all the beautiful colors of this daily phenomenon!
Great silhouetted human figure of this boy with a sparkling plastic bottle in his hand!
Great details on the sand!
All makes an artistic presentation.
Well done, my friend.

Excellent Mike,

By the look of the islands I knew its shot on KK ....
The composition is also correct as your son is on 1/3 of the frame and the islands occupying 2/3 of it ...


Espectaculares colores y acertada composición....saludos
