Very nice shot Konifacio (awesome name!), I love the mood created with the soft backlighting of the setting sun, which we can tell is coming from the right side. I also plays well, and differently, on the clouds in the background, creating subtle contrasts and pastel colors in the background, whereas te contrasts on the couple and the sand are higher. Nice effect too on the colors of their clothes, was there post-processing done on their clothes? Excellent composition with the couple off-center and in the lower third of the shot, balancing with the sand, water, and sky with clouds. Good decision to have the line between the water and sand at a slight angle across the shot for balance. Great clarity and detail and that white bold frame with the black border makes this look like a nicely-framed portrait of a couple. Do you know them? Very dreamy shot indeed, TFS!

helo koni,
very romantic portrait with great place and POV aslo DOV,
very well done.

Great shot. All elements perfectly placed within the frame. The dramatic clouds create a strong mood and I really like the romantic notes by the inclusion of the couple.

A very romantic picture! Great clouds! And a good composition!

Well done!

A lovely image Konie. Well composed and beautiful light. Soft colours and well defined. TFS,

Hi Konie:
This is an outstanding presentation in every way...
The couple looking toward the clouds...
slightly off center...
and the ocean with a bit of stormy lokk...
all sets the mood for this outstanding capture!!!

Very sweet shot Konifacio.

Hello Konie ! Very good romantic shot with the low sun light. Sharp and good exposed image with great colors. The only thing is that I would have place the couple on the right side of the frame. Thanks !

Nice landscape with people, Koni. God job on the details here - a nice composed with a horizontal horizon, good control of the exposre to reveal details in the light and dark areas, and nice and crisp.
P.S. A snipet of that song keeps going theorough my head now... "The lovers, the dreamers, and me..." Now it'll probably be in my head all day. Rainbow connection!
