Hi my friend,

Superb image, beautiful composition. Love addition of the sail boat which gives us a sense how just big the landscape and horizon is..



Hello Kyle,
OK, I cannot add this to my Three of a Kind theme then, since two of the dolpins are fake, hehehe..!
But the colours are amazing!
Well composed presentation, and the sun is captured at the right moment...

Hi Kyle !

I still can't understand how your setting suns have no reflections in the water ...

have a great creative 2008,
ps.I don't think we need the dolphins

Hi Kyle

Hi Kyle, magic sunset with fascinating colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi dear friend,
so good to see your posting.
Amazing tones and textures.
Great PP work too.
Best wishes,
:) soon

Hi Kyle,

Very artistic use of colour and of course you would not want the dolphin to be alone, so you gave him some friends - good idea.


Hello Kyle

They are my favorite pictures.
it is my perdition this marvel, this beauty!
Beautiful capture, details of the boat, of the sun and of the fins of the dolphins.
Everything excellent!


Hello Kyle!
Very beautiful colours in your lovely composition!
Great orange sky!
Very calm atmosphere!
Good perspective!
Best regards!

I like the colour composition here
But the brightness it is a bit unreal for a sunset
It will be a good selling postcard
I made a workshop for you
Hope you like it

Nice PP work Kyle. Lovely subtle colours with good detail. I love that setting sun. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Natural Abstract’

Fabuloso horizonte, hermosos colores Kyle.
Un trabajo encantador.

Fabulous composition and colours and the cloning is brilliantly done.
The one thing I might have done differently is to clone those three little guys into a hitpoint (the place at which thirds lines cross) for even greater impact
Very well done
