Taken at 6.40p.m. - another shot on fishing.
I was taking some sunset shots in a park near to my apartment when I spotted this man fishing all alone. It must be nice to fish and enjoy the beautiful sunset at the same time. I envied him for being able to relax and enjoy in such a manner. I hoped that’s what he was feeling. He did not notice me taking the shot and I thought it would create an interesting mood to my composition. So I will just concentrate on the man and the water. I was lucky as a speed boat happened to pass by creating the ripples on the water.
PP - sharpening, adjusted level and slight increase in saturation.

Lovely composition with great atmosphere. The red tones and the silhouette help a lot to create this mood. I like it very mush. Great work!

Your framing and the limited set of colors create a special atmosphere here and make the scene a bit irreal, the red colors tones you obtained on the water are very interesting, it seems to me the photo has been a bit damaged by the JPG compression.
Have a nice day,

Fantastic strong colours. Really striking silhouette effect. I like the reflections of the silhouette splattered in the water.

WOW Aloysius! This shot is a work of art. The textures are amazing and the colors are incredible. I love the range of warm tones to be found in this shot. Very nice shot Aloysius!!!

Excellent silhoette photo. The increased ripples associated with the reflection of the pier really add an extra dimension to the composition.

do you hear the applause ?!!
I like this shot very much. Not only the reflexes alone are a paint, but the graphical effect (with the plus of the fisher) add a romantic effect to the compo.
In the first moment i have thinked that the dark upper bar is a little bit too 'heavy'... but no, is right so, without it the effect is different.
Compliments, very well done!

A fine atmosphere you captured with the mix of waves and golden light reflected in the water - the sight of the fisherman gives a feeling of a quirt life - something I could need ever now and then in a stressed life ;-)

You have posted many beautiful shots but this is my favourite. The reflections are pure art....bravo!

Wow, the reflections and colours here are unreal Aloysius. At first glance at thought those were water lily pads on the water, but its just the strange effect caused by the lighting on the water. Very well done. Cheers . . . David

This is an interesting sunset silhouette!
The colours make me almost feel the starting heat of the day about to end...
I imagine the fisherman sitting there is contemplating life as he is waiting for the fish to bite...
Nice composition, and a very moody image...
