Waouw, un superbe jeu de lumières entre le soleil, le nuage et l'eau. El le palmier pour rappeler le "paradise touch".

Lovely! You have caught the perfect conditions for a sunset picture. I love the rays of light and how the cloouds seems to be burning. And the reflections in the water are great too. The siluette of the palmtree is the topping on the cake.

The perfect tropical 'classical sunset', with rays of light visible that prolong out of the clouds, the red-to-blue sky and the palm tree (a must!). Everything nicely reflected on the water surface. Excellent

Wonderfull sunset. The ocean looks like gold and the sky is just devine with those rays of sunshine. The plam trees finishes the composition.

Fantastic reflection of the cloud in the water, and I really like the streams of light behind. Well composed and exposed.

Beautiful Sunset, the coconut tree in the foreground makes a great contrast to the background.

Wonderful addition to the sunset theme. I just love the 'liquid gold' sea that you've captured so well here. That sky is really dramatic too. I would probably crop the RHS a bit and maybe a little off the bottom to minimise the dark corner in the bottom right, but otherwise a fine shot.

Beautiful shot. Magnificent colors. Lucky to catch such a moment.
How would it look without the palmtree competing with the paint work on the sky and the sea? I try to give an answer in a workshop.

Je reste toujours admiratif de ces couchers de soleil. Lorsque je regarde à la télévision des reportages sur l'Ile Maurice, je pense à vos photos et à votre vie si loin là-bas.
Merci, Christian de nous faire partager ces moments de rêve et d'envie !

Fantastic, a real wonder, Christian. Both the sky and the sea are burning, it's amazing. Very good capture of an incredible natural color, which makes a nice contrast with the blue upper part of the sky.

This is great work Christian.The reflective reddish golden brown sea with the ray of sun setting lights over the clouds with the fishermen to create scale.
I love this sunset. Pretty much like the sunset I had captured and post in my photoblog.

The reflection in the sea, the colours and the framing are perfect.

A beautiful picture, beautiful colours.
I like the ways you have captured the rays of light, also the palm tree adds to the effect.
Overall well done

Quand la lumière est bonne et que la vue est superbe... un moment de magie, de bonheur. Merci d'avoir partagé.

It's a wonderful picture but, you should probably clean your sensor because as you can see, there's strange black spots in the sky.

Lovely shot, very nice colours and scene! Spectacular lights in the clouds, and coming from behind them. I like the reflection on the water, very warm colours and well detailed.
Nice composition with the palmtrees on right. Love the rays of light.
Few minorities : the boat ON the left border, it's only partially on the photo..(not the boat with 3 people)
There are a few black dots, I guess dust on your lens maybe, which is not so nice.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful atmosphere.
