[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The sun has gone down below the horizon but this young man was intent on practicing his skim boarding techniques. There is always good opportunity for scenes like this in Boracay. However, it is currently rainy season in the island. The best times to go are from November to April.

PP talk: noise reduction, slight adjustment of contrast, followed by USM.

Good day.

Hi Danilo,

The colors of the sunset and their reflection on the beach are very nice. Catching the surfer was a good bonus. Judging by his movement parallel to the shore, this must be one of those skimmer-type boards. A nice, moody shot.

Best regards,

hi danilo. i like the gradient colors on the sky and the silhouette formations of the people on the beach (specially that one near the middle which is making a funny pose) overall,the one that i like the most is the clouds, it looks like clouds that is near doomsday. its very dark and fluffy. nice presentation. keep it up. i like all your landscapes.


another terrific image Danillo the lighting and colours are excellentley produced with a good pov
tfs regards bryan

Greetings Danilo,
I like your composition,due to the silhouettes against all the warm colours of the sunset & that vibrant reflection in the foreground. It must of course still be warm that late at night, for the people to still enjoy swimming & skim boarding.
I think perhaps that the top half of the evening sky may have had a tad to much % of noise reduction.I do like how you have captured the light & the formation of the clouds.May I ask what your ISO setting was?
Best Regards

Great shot! Amazing lighting and silhouettes.
Well done

Hello Danilo
The sky here is great - so brilliant and so are the reflections on the wet sand.
It's quite a busy scene too with all the people at the beach and the shapes of the clouds too

Hello Danilo

It's spectacular .... What I see first is the reflection of the sky on the beach and it is beautiful.
The show is as much in the sky on the beach, the depth of field is excellent, very well balanced composition.
The colors are ... as said Vlad (Pozaru), from another planet.
I have a feeling that in the middle of the beach there is someone who seems to take a picture, right?
Fantastique sunset, Compliments Danilo.

Bonjour Danilo,
Fantastique photo très bien cadrée. Les couleurs sont magiques et les ombres chinoises que laissent les personnes sur la plage est tout simplement superbe. Très bien vu.
Merci et bonne journée.

hello, Danilo.This is an amazing capture of a very beautiful sunset with vibrant and saturated colors contrasting with grays and adding the figures give a scaled and dimension to the photograph. The perspective and sharpness are excellent with reflections echoing the colors of the sunset. Congratulations on a great post.

Great colors and light.
\Beautiful silhouets, congratulation

Hi Danilo,
A beautiful shot of the sun set at beach with dramatic clouds and its color tones,a very different lighting and amazing sky show.

My Compliments

Hi Danilo,

What a superb shot with such golden emerging colors!
The sharpness and POV are well done and the silhouettes of the people enjoying bath at the beach, is very nicely shown. A great daily life scene with such remarkable moment.

the colors are such pleasing to the eyes. The clouds are so wonderful, bring immense mood into the shot. Wonderful job!

best greetings,
