[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The sun was about to set in the north beaches of Dominican Republic, but it resisted more than usual this time, like if it wanted to show out its beauty for us.

Taking advantage of the beach curve to allow a reflection in the water, using the palm trees as skyline, and a foreground tree in the left to frame, I composed this simple image, an almost nocturnal image.

Beautiful evening shot from coastline with nice palms bringing the viewer's eye to proximal point! The sharpness and colors are so wonderful, however a bit of OE is observed in the clouds but overall, an eye-catching work. Very well done!

La zona velada y la poca luz de la playa estropea la foto...saludos

Hi Galder,

Excellent leading curves and perspective.
Very good exposure and well framed shot.


Que atardecer tan impresionante. Lo que más me gustó es que lograste captar todo sin perder detalle en las sombras y crear un equilibrio muy bueno con las luces. Saludos!
