This photo was taken just before the sun completely set. The place... Port dickson in Malaysia where the beach is not as gorgeous as other beaches in Asia but the sunset is wonderful even if it is setting behind a building.
What inspired me to take this photo is the woman who seemed to be praying while the sun is setting behind her.
This is just my 2nd contribution and I would appreciate if you can give your comments. I used my Sony DSC F505 (1999 model... this camera has got no viewfinder, just the LCD screen).

What a beautiful sunset. Great composition, i like your placement of the woman and the horizon. Very well exposed with great range of colors. How this has received so little attention remains a mystery to me. Well done, look forward to future posts.

Hi Tito Robert,
Very nice sunset shot! I think you were able to achieve the classical rule of thirds rule here. It was also a good coincidence that the lady was standing just below the setting sun. The 2 rays isolated her to give enough emphasis on her action. Well seen!

A lovely sunset.I like the effect of the sun shining through the palm tree branches and the rays of light.The lone figure is a bonus with her huddled pose in contrast with the warm sun.That trash can could have maybe been cloned out.A good day to you.
