[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello my dear friends!
Back after a wonderful holiday, with hundreds of photographs! I browsed through the gallery here on TL and, wow, I missed so much!
It will be hard to pick only a few pictures to post here...Turkey is a heaven for photographers who like details! I hope to prove that in the following days.
One evening, I spent about 2 hours sitting on the beach and enjoying the sunset. Took about at least 20 photos, chose this one to share with you. No PP work here, just resized, slightly cropped, framed, and ran through neat-image. I did set WB on my camera to 'shade' to get warm tones.
Regards to everyone!

Welcome back to TL, Marija and what a come back you are making! This is an amazing sunset picture with really rich colours from the yellow to the dark brown of the water. I like the ray of sun on the water on the left side and the sailboat adds a lot to the composition. Well done!

Nice come back, Marija! Wonderful ship and great sunset, with warm colours. I like your vertical format as well, and the centered horizon line works well here. Excellent!

Beautiful shot Marija, good to have you back.. :) good composition, very well captured, and the colours is amazing, good details too...:) Thanks for sharing... can't wait to see more. :)

This is amazing, Marija! Did it really look this way? Don't you love being able to capture it to keep always? I envy you - being able to sit for hours just looking, thinking, and snapping that shutter.

Just beautiful! Welcome back!

Gayle :)

Hiii Maria,
Welcome back from your holiday. Glad to hear you had a nice time and also you finally got your share of sunset pictures :).
This one is very well composed with very lovely tones. I line the angle of the ship as well as the reflections of teh sun in the waves.
Wonderful picture..waiting to see more :)

This ia an amazing capture. Very well composed and framed. Love the light. Its so rare to get photos of these kind of sail ship.

Great composition with the inclusion of the waves, sun, and placement of the boat. Nice colors as well. This is a lovely shot to share with us, thanks.

Good for a big poster on the wall.

Wow, wow and wow !! beautiful Marija !! I love the contrast made by the sunset and of course the beautiful shilouette of the ship. Nice composition. TfS

Hi Marija!

Great compo, awesome colours! And the sun is just spectacular!


Great capture Marija. It's been a while since your last post, glad that you're back. The silhouette of the boat against the colours of the setting sun is great. The golden glow and glitter at the tip of the wave is beautiful. You've captured this very well. TFS.

Nice shot, nice sunset and impressive boat! Congratulations

wow, beautiful. i love the rolling waves, which are coming towards you, the glare of sunlight on the water, and the distant clipper. i love the fact that the photograph radiates with the warm tone.

great composition!

Dobrodošla natrag! Znam kako ti je, ja upravo odrađujem zadnjih 5 dana godišnjeg... :(
This is great photo, I love that vacational mood you have captured here. I have similar shots from my vacation, will be here soon :)
I like the sharpness of the sea, that actually shows how peaceful it was. And the colors here are excellent. But vertical composition with boat is something that makes this sunset photo different than others in a very positive way. Excellent job, TFS!
Jedva čekam ostale fotke s odmora :)

Hi Maria!
You have very impresive gallery, you can be proud on your work.
This one is my favorite.
Compo, colours, mood, point of view, all works on the right way.
My compliments.

Wonderful work Marija. The copper tones in the sky and on the backs of some of the waves give this sunset and tremendous feeling of warmth. I can hear the rigging of the boat moving in the breeze.

Yes, one good shot might just be a begginers luck. But twice - I dont think so! splendid colors!

You made me think of Rod Stewart and 'Sailing' ... You made me sentimental. I will never forgive you for that ... :)
