[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On a daily basis, the residents of Key West, FL and tourists gather at Mallory Square for a sunset celebration. The title refers to the many T-shirts I saw with pictures of chickens and signs that say "I rule this town." Apparently the elected officials of Key West are in quandary about what to do with the exploding indigenous Bahamian chickens. Protected by law, the chicken's population is rapidly rising. The local paper reported that the chickens will be relocated to a safe haven and will be afforded protection warranted by environmental laws. I should have visited Kentucky Fried Chicken to see what their plans are.

Except for resizing, there was no postprocessing. The orange sky makes it seems like a tobacco filter was used - an ND filter was used instead.

Best regards.

I was amazed to read that you had not filtered the sky a little, Danilo. This must have been an amazing sight!
I like how the sea is tinted, too.
The fading of the silhouettes, into the distance, helps lead the eyes into the shot.
Good, thirds composition.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

i would prefer to focus on the right half area, simplicity to the maximum

Boa tarde dear danilo
what a beautiful light...it must have been a delicious moment. The silhoetutes , the light, the placement of "boats"...all make an lovely image full of love for life.
Um abraço

Hi Danilo!
Wonderful golden view!Very well done

Sorry, missed some recent wonderful contributions from you, Danilo!
The boats and such a great sky, both give this work a classical painting like look.
The sharpness and POV are excellent and clarity is amazing. The silhouettes of palm trees on the right end of the scenario, are very well seen.
Great work

best regards,
