I see we're neighbors today, Abmdsudi. This is a truly amazing sunset! Such a wide array of colors and patterns, the sky is almost on fire here. Your exposure is perfect, pushing the upper registers to the limit without overexposure while creating beautiful detail in the darker clouds at top. The reflection of orange over the boats in the water is an excellent setting for this one. Lovely work. Thanks!

A gorgeous cloudy sky in its red and gold sunset colors occupying most of the frame
The bottom part with the quiet and serene waters and a few boats at rest complete the compo
A nice one, in the same trend than that of yesterday
Best regards, have a nice WE

Beautiful picture, the contrast between the dark mountain and the splendid cloudy sky gives a wonderful composition, the colours and composition are superb!
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-02-16 7:37
You show with this picture that less is more.
With the excellent composition do you show
a smalle piece of the land en sea, the rest
is a party from Mother Nature paintbrush and
you captured it this with an excellent light
In short: a beauty.

krzychu30 (15512) 2013-02-16 8:12
it´s quite like your title says-dramatic,but beautiful and absolutely fascinating.Amazing what nature can create everyday.It´s a real festival of colors excellently captured by you.Also the cloud formations help to depict the scene and colors as good as possible.There are actually no words needed to describe this scene-simply delightful and we should just admire it for a while.
Have a nice weekend

Un tres joli coucher de soleil, de belles couleurs bien jouer, de façon claire, bien fait.!
Noel_Byrne (29183) 2013-02-16 8:46
You are right, words are not needed when presented with a display like this, that is an incredible sunset. It does invoke a feeling of the end of the world, but is no less stuningly beautiful for that. Such a vast array of colours, truly a wonderful scene.
Thanks for sharing

hai ragione nel dire che più che le parole questa immagine si commenta da sè. Un tramonto ricco di colori che sfumano in infinite gradazioni tra cielo e mare ed esaltano la grandiosità della natura. Una foto stupenda nella quale alla natura hai dato il tuo contributo grazie ad una giusta regolazione della tua cam.
I miei complimenti.
Ciao e buona serata

Fabulous color variations of the sky! Fantastico! Nice cutting with the right distribution of space, beautiful reverb on the sea! Everything nice!
Best regards and good Sunday, Nino.

Hello again Admdsudi,
Wow what a fantastic capture. Your pov is extraordinary as are your colors. Well done Admdsudi!
Definately one of my favorites!
delpeoples (56726) 2013-02-16 22:24
I think this might be your 400th photo here on TE. If it is, congratulations, what a wonderful achievement and a privilege it has been to view your photos. The colours here are stunning, with such an amazing range. The deep purple tones are my favourite and the wispy clouds that dominate the sky with the Rule of Thirds framing. A beautiful work, one which, as you say, speaks for itself.
Warmest wishes and happy Sunday
daddo (26482) 2013-02-17 0:23
Salam Abmdsudi.How apt is the name of this island when one considers the spectacular colours all around! As you say, don't talk- just enjoy. Nice to see you back in your element. Salam. Klaudio.
danos (94242) 2013-02-17 1:53
fascinating the view as the light and colour management of the sunset with the reflections to are spread over the sea,making the image even more effective.I like the excellent presentation as the beauty of the scene.
Kamilutka (8105) 2013-02-17 2:12
what a beautiful sunset you have presented! The colors are so amazing it is perfectly understood that you gave the sky so much space in the whole scene. The tiny bit of land and some boats on the see are very nice touch to the whole composition.
SnapRJW (31629) 2013-02-17 2:33
Hello Abmdsudi - There is such depth to your sunset created, I suspect, thanks to your 30mm lens. It has given the clouds a lovely feeling movement as they emerge from the upper corners of the image and direct the view to a point above the dip in the distant mountains. A wonderful composition, atmospheric and beautiful. Nature showed her splendour and you did more than justice to it with your camera. Warm regards rosemary
ourania (41234) 2013-02-17 5:35
this is a magnificent work of art. We're all fortunate you were there to capture in such an effective way this amazing, evocative scenery and its timeless and fascinating atmosphere. The sense of depth and the richness and beauty of the colours are extraordinary. Fabulous work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
rychem (32245) 2013-02-17 8:18

Magical photo, well done!!!
papagolf21 (95497) 2013-02-17 11:34
Bonsoir, cher Abmdsudi,
Encore une image enivrante de beauté ! Il est bien difficile de détacher son regard de ce moment de grâce.
Le ciel magnifié de mille couleurs est splendide.
Le charme opère magnifiquement.
dkmurphys (55867) 2013-02-18 1:15
A true beautiful scene in lovely colors and peaceful atmosphere. A paradise on earth.
Have a fine new week.
adramad (43115) 2013-02-18 4:30
Truly a spectacular composition with this sunset so impressive a colorful, wonderful these red and orange, alternating with blue tones.
Ideal color reflections on sea water, the backlight of the line of mountains, gives great DOF to composition.
Very good, both the brightness and sharpness.
Happy start to the week.
jemaflor (93239) 2013-02-18 4:45
Lovely view and sky withe these colors, great brightness, I like the composition with boats and mountains.
Graal (101714) 2013-02-18 7:51
beautiful sunset here. Amazing palette of colours. Friends all told you. Photo I like a lot, too.

amaryllis (36455) 2013-02-18 8:30
j'adore tes couchers de soleil qui sont magnifiques, des couleurs de feu, orange, du foncé, les reflets sur la mer, une photo bien réalisée
josepmarin (58325) 2013-02-18 11:05
a sunset shot simply wonderful! I love this warm orange tones on the sky and on the clouds, and the subtle blue ones as well.
The game of silhouettes of the coastal landscape, and the orange sheens on the sea, create a beautiful and sublime composition.
An excellent work.
dudipeter (285) 2013-02-19 12:00
Lubię tak uwiecznione chwile.
shevchenko (19444) 2013-02-20 0:46
What a stunning view in evening, nice splendid sky in vivid color and fantastic lighting effect, good frame to show the wide seascape, lovely fascinating view, distinct photo, well done.
mirosu (15972) 2013-02-20 3:06
Excellent exposing for the sky has nicely captured the terrific colors of the sunset and made a good silhouette of the hills and boats. The sky colors are brilliant. Perfect sunset shot.
nikkitta (17066) 2013-02-20 13:54
Yes let the picture show a great POV for a beautiful sunset, incredible sky (good to let it be the protagonist of mostly all the capture)reflected on the waters, the tine boats silhouettes add more interest at the composition
Great shot TFS
sacavem (18620) 2013-02-22 9:59
I like the feeling that comes out of your photograph. Nice warm color TFS
mkamionka (34609) 2013-02-23 11:48
spectacular sky, amazing view. Indeed there are no words which could add anything to the photo. There is so much going in the sky -so many shapes and colors. You were lucky to be there at such beautiful conditions. Great POV too with the mountains on the horizon and the boats adding some nice silhouettes and enhancing so much the composition.
mjw364 (432) 2013-03-02 5:16
Such rich, warm colours here in this beautiful sunset shot. Almost like an oil painting in some ways. Fantastic. Well done.
mcmtanyel (19701) 2013-08-15 21:29
Exquisite copper tones, beautiful composition. The dark clouds remind me of those horrid clouds/flying things in Harry Potter.
