Well saturated image and noiseless composition is just fantastic. A combination of warm and cool tones are creating a dynamic atmosphere. Excellent shot my friend.

Thanks for sharing it.

Beyond gorgeous Kyle! I LOVE your style of pp work! You could probably make a pretty penny down there in the Keys with this art! Have you tried it??

Nice link from Cclaudiu enjoyed, Photo also enjoyed one of my biggest fantasies is to sail away to the sunset and you captured it well here. Superb work. I might have toned the water down a bit. rgds Necip. Sorry points tommorrow.

Hi Kyle. I have always wondered what PP you do if any. A lovely image, the boat positioned just right and the colours are brillaint. Excellent definition and good light. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Tamar Tranquillity VI’. It would seem as though I had once again neglected to load the original image…it is there now.

Hi Kyle,
This is exceptionally good. Love the way you have captured the white clouds against the deep orange sky. A simple composition but one with a strong impact due to the magnificent colours and positioning of the subject. Love the magical colours of sunset, certainly a view that would wash away all fatigue and tiredness.

Hello Kyle!
Excellent composition!
Nice colours and good point of view!
I like almost all photos you have posted here.

I'm sorry to have missed this one before, Kyle. What a beauty. Must look even better full frame, with more "slack space" between the rigging ;o). Excellent colours (though maybe slightly oversaturated), very moody indeed.

Hi Kyle

I thought I would wander back through your photos to see what gems I had missed. This is very eye catching. Wonderfully composed with gorgeous colours. Nicely sharp and with a good exposure.

I'm not sure how you managed to get such a great exposure on the yacht against a strong sunset, but you've executed it with perfection Kyle. This is a fabulous image.

TFS, Gary

Very nice. Nice colours

Very impressive picture, great shot of the sunset, conrast and composure excellent.

Classical Photo Painting.

Great shot Kyle !
I really had to lean in closer to the monitor to see if its not painted on a canvas and still not 100% convinced :)
