After what seemed an eternity of rain, rained and more rained,
nature presented me what seemed a very pleasant interlude,
a blissful moment of the last hours of the day as the light was fading....
I'm not sure I've done it justice here but tried none the less.
Taken from a small fishing village in Karkara Island, an outlying island east of Halmahera volcanic island, one of more than 300 islands that make up North Maluku Province in north eastern Indonesia.

Une très belle composition avec de superbes couleurs. Cela valait le coup d'attendre la fin de la pluie.
Bravo et bonne fin de journée.

This is not a common sunset, thanks to different layers of clouds. What a dramatic mood it creates! I like the mix of muted colours, from which the orange stands out, like a fire in the sky.
This boat is quite interesting in its shape and in the way you have presented it, brilliantly placed in your composition. I like the way the triangular shape of the canvas on the boat echoes the mountain in the back. Nice reflection and textures on water surface.
Have a nice weekend!

The sunset colours are beautifully reflected in the water here. The boat is nicely positioned too. Beautiful colours that are pleasantly combined in this very peaceful view!

Fascinating composition, by the great beauty that provides the sky, with these colors so attractive, the POV is definitely superb, with beautiful and original boat in the foreground and an ideal background with that mountain that looks like a volcanic cone and green of vegetation surrounding these calm waters that give us their reflections, all the beauty of the sky.
A perfect colorful natural.
A very bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a great weekend.

Hello Abmdsudi - An overall delicate and understated colour palette is contrasted by the burst of warm sunset hues bursting from the horizon and bouncing off the clouds. Magical capture made extra special by the distinctive shape of the volcano in the distance. Excellent. Warm regards Rosemary

non sbagli una foto. Tutte perfette sia nella ripresa che nella scelta del soggetto. In questa poi anche il colore assume il ruolo di protagonista con un cielo di fuoco e il suo riflesso nell'acqua. Eccellente anche la composizione.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
brianmcc (5963) 2013-10-25 13:09
i love this picture, your composition is excellent and has a great sense of balance. the boat is perfectly placed in the foreground leading the viewers eye through the rest of the image. love the colours in the sky and the reflections in the water.
adidas5nb (3961) 2013-10-25 21:03

Instant magique ou la lumière perce le ciel gris, bon placement de la barque avec les reflets, la brillance de l'eau est divine, j'aime beaucoup ces moments paisibles, aussi ce genre de composition avec les barques

Have a great weekend - Brian.

A fine sunset photo, making a good use in the composition of the boat and especially its blue canopy, which blends so well with the reflected setting sun and the other blue tones in the picture. The photo has a warm atmosphere and conveys such a pleasant sense of tranquility.
bayno (18340) 2013-10-26 4:48
Full justice at the moment Abmdsudi, really wonderful sunset with special contrast between grey and orange tones.... the compo is very well made with excellent details and dept.......nice reflection in teh water too...excellent one...

An interesting article about the place and moment ...
Good composition and perspective, nice place and time indicated.
A good time recording, contrast, beautiful colors.
Good evening and all the best for the weekend, good luck.

You certainly have done this justice, the sense of calm is perfect, and I gather from your note that its not calm before the storm, but calm during the storm. Those colors are really superb, and the light is soft and very gentle. Wonderful idea to compose that unique boat there too. Thanks as always
Kamilutka (5751) 2013-10-26 8:28
love image and with serene mood about it. The orangey light and its reflection on the water makes quite special by bringing some color and life. Classic composition, perfect sharpness and great clarity of the picture.
Thanks for sharing
krzychu30 (14412) 2013-10-26 9:27
what a beautiful scene!For me the water looks just amazing(almost like a liquid silver or something,anyway so unreal like I´d watch a fairytale).
And the setting sun giving us some last warm rays and illuminating the water and the sky so lovely is truly a magnificent bonus to the shot.
Like I wrote-the composition has everything!Perfect quality and colors and what´s more important for me-unique mood you you were able to capture so good here!
rychem (15484) 2013-10-26 9:39
Romantic photo with beautiful classic composition, the colors are amazing, beautiful light, very well managed, compliments
CLODO (27506) 2013-10-27 1:17
A quiet moment described by the grey hues mixed with the orange lights of the sun, the flat surface of the water, and the moored trimaran.
Have a nice sunday
delpeoples (50271) 2013-10-27 3:37
Ahh this is just wonderful and whilst I haven't seen it for myself, would appear you've done it more than justice. What an amazing feeling it must have been to witness this tranquil unspoilt beauty. The position of the kayak to the left of the frame gives all that space to the marvellous sea and sky. The pastel colours are magnificent.
A superb job, congratulations
Silvio1953 (109385) 2013-10-27 3:53
Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating composition with fantastic reflections, romantic atmosphere, wonderful warm colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio
ourania (21500) 2013-10-27 6:56
wonderful capture of this precious interlude just before the warm light of the day fades into darkness. You created a superb composition in which we can enjoy this phenomenon thoroughly. I like very much the mild dynamism and the great depth of this view. The boat is a very attractive element that's been integrated effectively through its lines and colours. The texture of the water and the tricky play of the warm tones with the silvery/violet/grey ones are mesmerizing. The atmosphere is sublime. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
npecanhuk (58264) 2013-10-27 19:31
Another very beautiful picture with special regards to the colors, exposure, chosen pov and composition!
I love the silhouettes of the mountains in the bg!
I truly enjoy the colors and details of that sky!
Reflections and textures on the water surface are so attractive too!
TFS - congrats,
eldancer1 (22463) 2013-10-28 7:45
This image is worthy of being in the National Geographic--beautiful! Love the colors of the clouds and the reflection on the water. Great pov and it has good dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.
mkamionka (28039) 2013-10-29 14:09
another masterwork in your gallery. The light is beautiful. Great colors and patterns in the sky, it looks like an impressionist painting so unrealistic! And it is all enhanced with the vivid reflections. Fantastic composition with the boat placed diagonally in the foreground. I like also the silhouettes of the mountains on the horizon. It is very impressive, no words to give it a justice.
mcmtanyel (7359) 2013-10-30 20:34
Colors are wonderful. Composition is great. The imaginary line from the boat to the distant mountain has definitely improved the photo.
nikkitta (10482) 2013-10-31 19:01
But of course that you did more than justice, Abmdsudi, you watch and created a sublime capture of color contrast and reflexes in the way you are a master
No to tell about the compostion witha so well placed boat
Like also at the back the tree silouettes
A pleasure to watch and comment
Angshu (53667) 2013-11-01 1:17
A beautiful moody picture!
Despite the impressive subject of the boat in the FG, my eyes get drawn to the volcanic peak, hazy blue in the far BG against the red & orange sky. The FG of the fishing boat with the reflections have been beautifully captured. The low light creates a melancholic mood...beautiful!
adores (32204) 2013-11-02 18:37
Another fantastic sky here! I really like that golden part and the reflection on the water. A fantastic atmosphere, completed by the lonely boat in foreground. A very good shot!
josepmarin (57073) 2013-11-03 3:27
a peaceful atmosphere in this composition. I like the splendid view on a beautiful landscape, the warm hues of the last sun rays, the shines and the reflections on the water, and the traditional boat in foreground.
The image is sharp and deep, and has a great light. A superb work.
