Krakatoa (Indonesian: Krakatau) is a volcanic island situated in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra. The name is also used for the surrounding island group and the volcano as a whole. The Krakatoa volcano exploded in 1883, killing an estimated 36,417 people and destroying 2/3 of Krakatoa island. The explosion is considered to be the loudest sound ever heard in modern history, with reports of it being heard up to 4,800 km from its point of origin. The shock wave from the explosion was recorded on barographs around the globe.
Currently, the Krakatoa volcano has re-emerged from the ocean, and is the principal force in the on-going formation of a new island, Anakrakatoa, or "Child of Krakatoa".
The volcano became very active again at the beginning of this month. Unfortunately, I could not see any eruption when I went there...

For a long time I wondered on this photo. I came back to it several times. Well I can write about it. The technique, the quality of the composition is all perfect but my attention draws climate. I feel as if the wanted to speak!
This is about something more, but I still do not understand what the picture wants to say. It is a little like we were on the other lewels. I need more time to be able to recognize my feelings and translate into words.
good job ...

Composition, light management are excellent.

This is a beautiful photo. I love the muted blue tones contrasting with the red of the girl's top. 5sec was perfect exposure for the water so that we see some of the rhythm. Your model did well to freeze for 5 sec. The model looks pensive as if she is waiting for someone to arrive by sea. Well done.
