Sunset at Nagsasa Cove, Zambales.
A small lake inland is formed during high tide,
and this boat wreck made just the perfect foreground.

Shot on RAW, warm WB.
Screw-in GND + handheld GND used.

Thanks for the peek!!

Hi Ian, this is a lovely sunset shot... and I agree, the boat makes a perfect focal point in the foreground. there are also points of interest deeper into the shot though... the tiny people, the little huts, the sand bar, and of course that great sky. Well done. :)

Hi Ian...great work...perfect composition and colors...very nice.

Hi Ian,
A splendid sunset shot with a difference! I like the movement of the water around the boat! Great reddish cast with a marvelous reflection in the water. A dramatic sky and such a peaceful ambient.
Well done for this neat work.
My regards,

Nice sunset. I loke the reflection of the sun in the water. The boat on the foreground brings a good depth in your picture.

Hi Ian

This is todays most perfect picture.

Hello Ian

This is a keeper for sure. Wow what a striking image. All this in 1 second. Very well done.


Hi Ian,

This is beautiful. I like your composition with the dramatic sky and the good use of the boat but altering the WB in this way works so well and gives us these wonderful tones. It would be interesting to see your original shot. Did you save it before changing the WB? Excellent shot, full of mood.



Another of your spectacular shots making excellent use of the light and colours.

IMO a few basic compositional rules have been neglected here but would have made the shot so much more powerful: less centered placement of the banca and the horizon, for a start!

Terrific subject though and a delightful image still.


Hi Ian,

Wonderful sunset shot with dramatic warm lights, TFS.


A well composed shot it is with vibrant worm colour.

Hi Ian,
Beautiful and Amazing sunset nicely presented and composed,
Perfect deep of field and sharpness,
beautiful sky and reflection on water,
Nice perpective and saturation of colors with a great contrast,
very well done.
My compliments,

Magnificent shot Ian. The color and composition is just spectacular. Love it. Well done. TFS, Lori

Hi Ian

A little bit of over-sharpening on the prow of the bangka, but a lovely sunset nonetheless. with fantastic color & reflections. Tfs!
