Sunset on the Pacific Coast... Not a bad one for the first night in CR. This is the 'Playa Flamingo'; our 'local' beach.

Costa Rica is a beautiful country!

RAW file, no PP except for the frame. 1/45 sec at f8 and ISO 100.

Hi David,

Yes indeed CR is a fabulously beautiful country. We were there last year and I still can not get its beauty out of my head. This is a very nice sunset, beautiful colors and reflections. I like the simple frame.

Hi David,
I like the golden cast during this marvelous sunset of this beautiful beach is Costa Rica.
Good shot with the wide angle zoom! The POV is just great considering 2/3 sky, 1/3 sea. Nice wave to enhance the composition.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi David,
Ahhh-- wonderful. May you have several more beautiful sunsets while you are there. Nicely composed and lit. TFS Julie

Hi David,

Lovely shot,especially a straight raw,but wouldn't you rather be over here in the sleet and snow right now,don't answer that.

Love the peaceful moment you have caught here, DAvid!

Amazing management of exposure and perfect mirror-reflections on the "frozen-acting" surface of the sand.
The sharpness and POv are excellent, and colors are natural.
Well done!

Best regards,

Beautiful sunset and you did a wonderful job capturing it. Awesome colors and sharp details. Very well done, tfs.

Hi David
Beautiful sunset with such nice composition!
The sky is dramatic, excellent sharp details and brilliant colors!
Best wishes
