Valari (Valentina Georgieva) has been asking me me to post a ‘mistake’ here at TL. I guess she is tired of flora pictures and wants a different type of image once in awhile. This is for you Val. Hope you like it.


Every night
The horizon lights up
Swirls of pink and orange
Fading to blue and purple

Few bother to look anymore
At a blessing
That only comes once a day

Each sunset is different
No two exactly alike
Difference flows throughout
While it is the only similarity

Over the ocean
Or through the sky scrapers
Out on the prairie
Or in an apartment

You can still see a piece
A piece of something
Something never to return
A sunset

For the colors are shimmering
For a moment they stay
Only to disappear into change
Change just as beautiful as the last

This is why
No matter where you go
One thing remains the same,
A difference in sunsets

In your very own sunset

Hi Danilo,
Great Sunset.Very good colours,sharp, details and compo.Well done.

Well Danilo Val wanted a mistake. Quite frankly I see nothing at all wrong with the level. Lovely bold colours. It always intrigues me that no two sunsets are ever the same there is always a subtle difference somewhere. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on

This sky is so beautiful and so colourfull, I like these lines of red on this dark blue. Very well done.

WOW ! No words, except one to be proud Danilo.

Hi Danilo, a very dramatic sunset with fantastic colours framed by the trees.

Well done! Take care, Yan :)

p.s. Many thx for your review on "B-Ware". It's greatly appreciated.

Hi Danilo,

You were sooo lucky having seen this beautiful sunset!! Wonderful colour tones and I really like the POV with the dark silhouettes of the trees on the right side og the photo.
Very well done on the composition!


WOW! This is just an awesome photo! Great saturation of color! I one in a million sunset!

What sensational colours! Your use of the palm trees to border one side of the picture as a silhouette works really well.
Thanks for sharing such a beautiful scene

Hi Danilo.
Lovely&vivid colors, great sunset capture.
I like it silhouettes very much, good composition; well done.
Thanks for sharing, best regards.
Have a good week-end, take care.


Hello. Nice and simple. Great great colours! Well done. :O)

The silhouette of the palm trees
To a fantasic sky
The build of the photo is very good

Hi Danilo,
Astonishing picture of a sky at fire! Great almost ukmbelivable colours unless you have seen it with your own eyes (and I did but didn't capture it) So job well done and TFS!

Sorry no more :) for today but...I'll be back!

As promised...


Its like the end of the world but in a serene way. Great capture here. I like the serenity of the scene. Magnificent sky!


Hi Danilo, You have captured a magic scene here in the Philippines where such beauty and struggle go hand in hand. Great colours and framing. The trees are well arranged. Murray.

This is a very pleasant image, although I wouldn't say it's a fiery sunset... I'd say it's a saccharine sunset! It's a nice play between two colours, the blend well with one another but still stand distinctly seperate. I doubt I need to state the obvious, that the palm trees are gorgeous in their silhouettes... oh they seem like shadows to me. :)

Amazing angle here Danilo, if you had gotten it from any other angle I think the image would have been a very typical 'postcard' shot. One more thing, I love the way you got that bit of land/water in the left corner... it adds such nice impression to the shot. Well done!


wow this is perfect , how lucky wou are to have this shot I love it

Hi Danilo,
Fantastic colour combination. Pleasing composition too with the row of coconut trees just to the right.

Hello Danilo,

The diagonal cloud formations adds dynamics, and the palm tree silhouettes add the touch of silky tropical night!
Lovely atmosphere and eye-catching colours, the fine definition renders great details...
