I just love shooting into the challenging light just before the sun retires for the day, this was taken at Penggajawa fishing village Ende, when light and shadows is set in motion revealing the intricate textures and soft warm glow just begging to be captured.
Exposed on the foreground.

A very beautiful evening picture taken when almost everyone has left the beach already with some abandoned fishing boats on the foreground while the sun is setting on the horizon.
The contrast is very big between the dark sand and pebbles on the beach and the warm orange glow on the water as a reflection of the beautifully coloured sky.
The picture shows well the atmosphere of a calm and peaceful end of a beautiful day.
Best regards, Paul

ci hai imparato a conoscere i colori dell'Indonesia, i suoi tramonti, i suoi cieli tempestosi, la semplicità della sua gente, ma ogni giorno è un piacere vedere qualcosa di nuovo, anche perchè sempre avallato da una tecnica di tutto rispeytto e da composizioni estremamente curate.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

J'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère qui se dégage de cette image. Une belle ambiance de fin de journée bien remplie. La construction de l'image est impeccable avec ces belles barques à l'avant plan.

I like it.

A real success of light management here, Abmdsudi. Just a beautiful glow from the rear of the shot - that line of clouds over the sun is stunning, as is the soft light that filters over the water and eventually lands on the two boats you've chosen as subjects. A wonderful day-ending shot here; thanks.

You managed the challenging light very well. The exposure is perfect. In spite of the advancing darkness the details of the slender boats are easily visible, while the rays of the setting sun have a wonderfully warm tone painting the water in golden hues. The two persons standing on the beach are seen as nice silhouettes.
mjw364 (4036) 2013-03-09 8:14
Great shot with the boats arranged so well leading your eye into the shot. Interestinf effect the filters have had too creating that two tone sunset.

The disposition of the boats on the beach also gives a great charm to the composition in the foreground, the superb beauty of the sky and the reflections of the sea, which captures those wonderful golden hues of the sunset, makes the vision of this makes us really enjoy.
Very beautiful colors.
Superb brightness and sharpness.
Enjoy the weekend.

A true picturesque scene on the beach. I like the boat garaged at the sundown. Good catch!

the mood is wonderful and I find the light magical. Great depth created with those boats in the foreground, feels so romantic and calm out there.
My warmest regards

This picture oozes serenity. The silhouetted figures on the beach and the pier add small but important strength to the BG. The three boats suggest a busy day that will start again the next morning. A very well composed image with glorious light.
Kind Regrads, Ann
JFS (32425) 2013-03-09 11:33
Delicious mood Abmdsudi! Another delight and good pic of yours. this place looks beautiful and quite.
jusninasirun (17144) 2013-03-09 21:18
You have capitalized the wide view very well in this fine capture. The light and tone are beautifully rendered with contrasting appeal. I like the balanced composition you have created here my friend.
Thanks and have a great weekend.
SnapRJW (19188) 2013-03-09 23:16
Hello Abmdsudi - You have captured the mood of the waning light well by not overexposing the sky and retaining detail in the dark areas of the shot. The boats in the FG are nicely grouped with good ambient light bringing out the colours very subtly. The two figures add to the mood, ding what so many do, enjoying the sunset in a wonderful setting. Attractive work for sure. Warm regards rosemary

good shot during the sunset time. Fine composition. Pleasant warm hues and peaceful mood here. Photo I like.
Have a nice Sunday.
mirosu (5557) 2013-03-10 0:02
Superb sunset photo with terrific colors, excellent clarity and marvelous light reflections. The front placement of the boats, which are excellent focal point, works well here. Excellent. I like the tranquility of the scene. Well done, IMO.
krzychu30 (9385) 2013-03-10 0:41
this is definitely one of the most beautiful sunset shots I´ve ever seen.Colors of the setting sun are trully marvelous,so warm and well-saturated.I´m also impressed how you´ve managed shooting against the sun and expose properly bothe the foreground as well as the background.My Best Compliments Abmdsudi!Beautiful and very atmospheric scene.Excellently captured by you!
Have a nice sunday
Noel_Byrne (8055) 2013-03-10 8:14
I too love this time of evening, and this shot is a perfect example of why, the stunning failing light, the active clouds, and the sense of the day being over. I love the boats and how they are positioned in the foreground too. Great one, thanks
All the best
mayjayne (2792) 2013-03-10 8:23
I just love the way the light falls onto parts of the boats. Having taken shots facing the setting sun, I know that this is not easy. Well done on your superb execution!
Janusz1974 (2359) 2013-03-10 9:22
Great colours, very good composition and a very nice point of view.
The boats look good from this angle and I like the three bands of colour in the sky, sea and sand.
Cricri (87288) 2013-03-10 11:05
Et c'était le bon moment, c'est tout simplement magnifique, avec les barques, les couleurs et reflets, j'aime beaucoup
kato (7076) 2013-03-10 19:50
You're capturing well this evening scape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the sea dyed the setting sun and islands with silhouette in the distance. It's effective for some fishing boats which lie on the seashore, too. And, the figure and pier which is visible to a left end draw out a good effect in this image.
eldancer1 (17316) 2013-03-11 9:34
Indeed! But I like this mood--so beautiful and peaceful. I agree, shooting into the sun is very challenging but you did a wonderful job capturing this scene. Nice placement of the sun, and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
willperrett (3057) 2013-03-12 6:49
A classic of its kind. Glorious sunset, a hint of humanity, big foreground interest and moody low-key lighting. What else could we ask for?
Didi (49146) 2013-03-12 10:48
The presence of the boats has an importance in this composition because of the dark sand
Nice deep foreground
mkamionka (24806) 2013-03-13 9:45
this is another masterwork of yours. I am so jealous, not only I have still so much to learn from you but also I have absolutely no time now to go out and try it at all.
You had a fantastic sky there with clouds making a nice pattern. The composition is brilliant with the boats making a nice foreground. Great exposition with perfect balance.
nikkitta (6130) 2013-03-13 10:21
Well captured image at the end of the day with warm color that created an special atmosphere
Great composition with the two fisher boats at the FG and the tiny silhouettes of the boats arriving as well as the two people at the left
Well done, congrats
ourania (13057) 2013-03-15 11:54
I love the strong perspectives and intriguing textures in the foreground as well as the tiny people and boats out at sea that give an impressive sense of scale to this vast, deep view. The gradation and transformation of light, colours and mood along the seascape in the upper part of the frame is mesmerizing. You've done a marvellous job with the composition and the management of light and colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
delpeoples (45684) 2013-03-15 23:57
Hi dear Abmdsudi
Yes, shooting into the sun is very challenging and I always have mixed results. But you always seem to come up with something unique and successful. The perspective created by the 2 boats at angles and the colours are unusual and very beautiful. Nice work.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful weekend.
siudzi (24681) 2013-03-15 23:59
Another sunset post taken so perfectly! I'm more than sure that you really like it as well. The wooden boats captured in the foreground looks very well and eye-catching. Well done!
Schnappilic (7955) 2013-03-16 5:41
A huge framing with a special light. The whole atmosphere is superb. I feel like I'm there. Congratulations!

Light is perfectly captured, good depth this these two boats in the Fg, lovely warm tones for the horizon, tfs.
