This is one of the first my photos in Galle, on the Southern coast of Sri Lanka. The sunset meeting is one of the most popular atractions for the tourists and the local people, as this couple, for example, in Galle.
On the background you see the part of the Dutch fortress.

Une belle prise devant ce jolie bord de mer pour ces deux motocyclistes avant de continuer l'aventure. Excellente composition et l'endroit qui est magnifique, semble très populaire à voir les gens sur la pointe du rocher. Un bord de mer rocheux comme je les aime et parfait rendu des couleurs sous un soleil voilé.
Cordiales salutations du Canada.

A fine shot with a good foreground and an interesting background. The warm colours of late afternoon (I suppose) are very pleasant. Spontaneously I feel this could have been even better if you had taken a few steps to the right, placing the couple more towards the left side. On the other hand they could then have noticed you and objected to the photo. So never mind, an almost perfect photo is better than none at all.

The couple awaiting the sunset bring a romantic atmosphere to this beautifully presented image. Also, they are nicely juxtaposed against the crowded rock in the background. Lovely warm light and colours, very good sharpness. Thanks for sharing.

Une bonne prise de vue, une belle histoire ce couple installé pour assister au coucher du soleil; on a tous vécu ce genre de situation.

A beautiful personal moment captured well to show not only the moment itself, but also how it is appreciated by those who know it better than we watching, and that brings a much deeper level of connection to the scene. I love that we can see the masses of people off in the distance, but still have the close experience on the couples pricae moment. Nicely done.

What a lovely summery picture with sight on sea.
A lot people enjoy of the sun and the rocks and Dutch fortress in background.
Sharpness and colours are very pleasant to look at.
Composition and presentation are of high quality.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend

Two helmets in love. Their owners just sit and wait, while the helmets are flirting. :)
Lovely daily life scene from beautiful Galle, Serghei.

Hello Serghei - This is a great memory shot for me. I remember walking here and we stopped for chai in a little place immediately to the left of this shot. I think the couple sitting in the FG tell the story and anchor the wider view. Very nice. TFS and warm regards Rosemary

Looks like we've both incorporated song titles! The one I chose for my recent pic was largely due for your benefit, I figured you would appreciate that one. :)) Rock n' Roll!
I can see why this would be a popular spot to finish out the day. Glorious light and an open sea to appreciate in thoughtful and relaxing regard. This would have been attractive regardless of people, but the idea to include this couple in the foreground is brilliant. There's very much a sentimental attachment and an endearing quality conveyed. Great opportunity taken and executed! Have a good day my dear friend. Take it easy.
Cheers from Phoenix,

This image on to these people with a sea view behind has a great warm mood. They look very relaxed and we can see from their helmets how they arrived. They look very deep in thought.
To the Bg, we can see lots of sightseer's, walking around on the Dutch Fortress.
Splendid Pov, well managed.

I like very much the naturalness and peacefulness of this scene from daily life in Galle. Your point of view is close to the couple but discreet, it's lovely to see them relaxing and enjoying each other's company and the scenery. We don't see what they're looking at but what matters is their closeness and the reference they add to this place. I like how you leave them in peace and open your perspective to the coast and the other visitors. Light, colours and atmosphere are wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely month,
