When hurrying home after taking surfers' shot, the sunset tinged the sky with a rosy flush unexpectedly in this summer in Japan. It made me stop the bicycle and down to the beach. Everyone on the beach was watching the natural spectacle in fascination. A typhoon from far away had brought fortunately rare waves to the beach.

Superb shot Hisashi! Brilliant colors, level horizon, perfect choice in exposure to capture the moving water. Very well executed...
Angshu (56760) 2009-08-24 21:11
Superb shot! The fanning waves in the FG, the wave like clouds in crimson colour, the wonderful framing between 2 silhouetted outcrops on either side of the frame...wonderful!
Urs (14082) 2009-08-24 21:16
These purple color hues - fantastic and the reflection in the sea is stunning. Must be a very beautiful place, just to stand there and watch the sunset. Sharpness and DOF are perfect. Well done

Superb work, Hisashi. The hues are very beautiful, the movement of the wave is perfectly captured to create a strong dynamic impact; the whole is really fascinating, with a good balance of the elements in the picture (I love the soft cloud shape and textures). Congratulations!

Nice shapes of the wawe just dying at our doorstep with blur motion, and the soft clouds and of course these blue-pink colors

A very nice photo looking like a painting with vibrant colors. Slow shutter speed gives the photo a special attraction in waves. Excellent work. Congrats.
Giorgio (11279) 2009-08-24 23:22
- Extraordinary composition Hisashi, amazing color and light, one or two minutes earlier or later and the magic might have disappeared, anyway bravo!
smarcell (19965) 2009-08-24 23:30
I like the coming wave in foreground, which gives the right sense of depth. Nice sunset colors too.
SteveH (6371) 2009-08-24 23:38
Hi Hisashi, Your choice of shutter speed has given good dynamic effect on the water surging up the beach. Inclusion of the swimmers also provides good focal points. In this shot, I quite like the central composition too. Cheers, Steve
Hellas (6987) 2009-08-24 23:44
the picture contains magical colours, well-framed and taken in a wide angle emphasizing the water coming towards the viewer!
A remarkable job!
Waylim (25502) 2009-08-25 0:35
Very lovely shot, I like how the wave seems to mimic the pattern of hte cloud. Love the motion of the wave. Compositionally, I would have like to see more of the top of the sky, so your horizon is not too center and the colors saturation may be a bit hot. Regardless, the motion effect of the wave make this shot worthwhile. Thanks.
vasilpro (41619) 2009-08-25 1:06
Magnificent photo with great color tones. Congratulations!
Best regards, Vasilis.

Excellent sunset shot. Great colors and perfect timing. This picture is alive.
sevy (58) 2009-08-25 1:38
I wish I was there. It is the strengh of this shot providing nice sunset colors. The people in the sea are an invition to go and enjoy also.
Nice balance in the composition between the wave in bottom and the shape of the clouds in top. It justified the centered composition.
ktanska (28397) 2009-08-25 2:21
Interesting how waves and clouds form almost symmetric counterparts. Warm tones of sunset look great. Nice that there are still so many people swimming that time of day.
LOOOK13 (19046) 2009-08-25 5:39
Salut.Bravo pour cette excellente prise.La mer qui avance, les surfeurs et ce ciel qui rappelle la mer .Tout y est Rien à dire.Bravo.

You can definitely be proud of this shot....
Well executed and presented wonderfully.
darek1978 (13361) 2009-08-25 9:15
Wow! The texture of the water is excellent from the low speed. The sun was giving you wonderful light especially on the sky and wet sand in the foreground. Composition is excellent. Well done!

Great moment, the way the sunset colors spread onto the wave is excellent !

Amazing photo, breathtaking view! Beautiful place, perfect capture with great wide angle feeling, excellent composition and framing! Your light management is just perfect, the colours are really eyecatching! Congratulations!
belido (19934) 2009-08-27 5:00
the moment was perfect. I always look for those ones. In this case the 1/15sec was essential for the effect we see in the foreground. It brings a nice dynamism to the scene. Really beautiful view!
wgreis (8267) 2009-08-27 10:00
wonderful colors and a fantastic wide angle.
The movement of the water at the base side is very good.
BoisBarb (10369) 2009-08-27 22:46
A nice view with splendid colors. Great composition
azizbilgili (2111) 2009-08-31 4:33

A sumptuous sunset scene. Fantastic colors and sharpness, the rushing wave is well metered. Congratulation and tfs.
PaulVDV (30739) 2009-09-02 13:37
I like the colours of the sky and specially of the wave rolling on the beach.
Also the way these people seem so tiny on this picture of the sea reaching far to the horizon.
Best regards, Paul
rodgerg (55767) 2009-09-04 5:18
Incredible and very nice colors in the sky but too in the sea with the rfelections. Excellent framing too with the two cliffs - on the left and on the right - which give depht too the image. The black silhouets of the peopels give an interetsing element of life and an idea of the sacle of the place.
testmaniac (13508) 2009-09-07 21:47
Hi Hisashi, nice and colorful sunset photo, no doubt beautiful moment!

Que maravilla de captura con increibles matizes de rojo y purpura.
Da la sensacion que la ola va a llegar a mojarte observando la foto. Bellisimo trabajo .
Un cordial saludo.
AiresSantos (56155) 2009-09-08 23:34
Amazing colours in wonderful picture. The low speed created a fine effect in the wave.
Excellent sharpness and depth
colinb (1590) 2009-09-11 17:10
Wow, I can see why you stopped your bicycle. Amazing colors. Your camera did a fine job at such a high ISO, as well. Great shot!

delpeoples (59186) 2009-09-15 2:52
Hi Hisashi, it's not a reflection but the water seems to be imitating the sky here. Beautiful tones, beautiful depth. And the tiny people in sillouhette are excellently rendered. TFS, Lisa.
chrisnet (23046) 2009-09-15 12:25
The pink color here is very nice, I like this evening atmosphere, well seen.

What a beautiful color ! The 1/15 speed gives a dynamic wave on the beach, congratulations !
HimalAnda (10669) 2010-10-21 10:04
You managed to catch a wonderful sunset, with so nice colors.
I like the blur effect on the wave in the foreground: it gives an impression of speed.
sacimar (27513) 2010-10-25 11:01
wonderful image, I like it very much, colors and angle are perfect, good shot!
danyy (0) 2010-10-29 22:44
les couleurs rendent cet instant magique, un grand angle très efficace pour allonger cette plage. Le ciel est vraiment magnifique. Une capture très réussie de lumières vraiment particulières.
clic (17607) 2010-11-01 16:42
I can hear an hearty round of applause from the audience for this dramatic "encore" before the curtain falls!
josepmarin (58359) 2010-11-02 1:23
A wonderful sunset, caught skillfully with its amazing red tonalities on the clouds, and with a few reflections that duplicate the beauty of the scene.
I like the effect created by the foam of the wave in the beach.
A beautiful work.
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2010-11-05 1:16
amazing sky and d.o.f. i like this wide angle shot.

eldancer1 (36343) 2010-11-05 9:35
Simple but excellent composition with great colors. Great pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
Longroute (19396) 2010-11-29 0:37
being a seascape lover I start commenting this lovely photo of yours. It couples the beauty of the sunset colours with the sense of vastness of the sea and so it creates a unique atmosphere thanks also to the reflections. Simple and essential for all who appreciate the charm of nature.
Matthew-Watt (5934) 2010-12-05 22:04
Great work here, it is a photo of beauty and enjoyment. Great to see some people out there in the waters enjoying the sunset in the best way possible. The motion of the waves is very well captured at 1/15 seconds, it gives the image a lot of life and realistic properties. The pink vs. blue tones in the sky have been matched very well in the water. A sensational composition.
gmg (4202) 2010-12-07 4:56
Although you broke the rules of thirds and placed the horizon just in the middle of the composition (or maybe just because of that!) we have here an amusing landscape with beautiful colours and nice composition. The human figures add depth and the wave is absolutely amazing with its textures and hues
lpi (4857) 2010-12-13 3:53
Les couleurs sont très agréable, belle composition.
j'aime le mouvement de l'eau.
Bravo pour votre galery elle est superbe!
ade71 (2228) 2010-12-13 9:47

Hi Hisashi. Glorious colours, wonderful sky, a world of fairy-floss and happy dreams. The twinkling lights in the distance add to the charm of this image. Regards. Klaudio.
roshangar (1682) 2011-02-03 10:51
It's a great landscape, I love the rose color and silhouette of people in the end of the day...
