This sailboat, or locally called a "paraw," is one of the fastest sailing boats in the island. I rode this with my cousin and two other friends just as it was approaching sunset time, and for approximately PhP500 (US$10) a 1-hour ride is definitely worth spending for a beautiful afternoon on holiday.
Auto-contrast, auto-levels and auto-color, and added the gray fading border effect to frame this beautiful moment I am so thankful to Mother Nature, and my camera, for.

Love the shot, although it could have been better. Maybe you could have framed the shot a bit higher to show more of the sky and a little bit more to the right. For me the ideal sunset should show all the bright colors to give more life to the picture and to enhance the detail/s of your subject/s. Thanks!

Nice photo friend Christine, the reflexes of the light of the sunset on the sea is magic and a magician, I like.
Congratulations and see you soon.

How are you? Nice shot here, a very nice frame also. The dark waters work well against the soft glow in the sky. The subject is like no boat I have ever seen, good use of people in terms of scale. I like the boats on the horizon also, a good inclusion.
