Evening falls at White Sand Beach, Koh Chang, Thailand.
Koh Chang is an island in Trat Province and White Sand Beach is the most developed of all the beaches here. However, to be fair even White Sand Beach has a long way to go before development reaches the extremes seen on Samui, Phuket, Phi-Phi or Pattaya

A great way to show this beautiful sunset. While I would probably have been tempted to run through the trees to catch just the colors of the sky, your idea to include so many elements to the scene has worked perfectly. The trees add height and have lovely color from the lights shining on them, while the foreground has great interest from the lily pads floating in the water as well as the lovely blue tones of the water. The little boat is a real added gem to the scene too.
All the best

hard to find words to describe this wonderful view and this magic atmosphere.
It´s absolutely beautiful and definitely one of the most beautiful sunset shots I´ve ever seen.
I like your idea for the scene and the way you framed it.
You were also able to master perfectly the light.Both the FG as well as the BG are perfectly exposed and provide us with clear,detailed view.
Have a nice sunday

The colours in the sky are divine and make a superb backdrop for the majestic palms. I like the contrast offered by the inky waters of the lily pond. Excellent clarity.

la fine di solito è una cosa triste, ma in questo caso è una vera meraviglia.
Straordinaria composizione con una fantastica luce e dei colori splendidi.
Si può rimanere senza parole di fronte a questa foto.

J'aime beaucoup cette lumière en provenance de la base du palmier. Cela donne un aspect irréel à la lumière et beaucoup de caractère à la composition. Le coucher de soleil derrière est aussi magnifique. Le cadrage vertical donne beaucoup de profondeur .

A perfect composition with fine details. None of the objects in scene is overshadowing the other one. Shades of evening sky, water greens everything complementing each other. Beautiful

Nice paradise view with the full color Spectrum and a beautiful light.
ourania (44368) 2014-03-09 14:25
this is a gorgeous picture, rich in interest and atmosphere. You managed to capture all details, colours and lighting effects in a very rewarding way. I like how the pool and the walkway get us through the foreground and how at their end our glance raises on the palm trees or takes off over the ocean. The effect of the breeze, the marvelous textures and the magical colours hold us within the frame for a long time. The warm light offers a delicious spectacle. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

this picture looks like dream combination of everything people associate with Thailand. The colors of the sunset are stunning and add very much to the whole image, but also the composition is very pretty with the wooden pier leading an eye, palm trees setting up nice contrast with their fringed branches and the bright green leaves on the water in the foreground. Very lovely picture and masterly executed.
Thanks for sharing

Splendid place on sunset with nice colors, beautiful light and great details. I like it!
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-03-09 19:09
the speciality of this image is the magical layers of light in horizon and your composition. You did well to use the path at left corner as a strong diagonal. The reflection is also eye catching. Excellent colours too. So nice work, enjoyed it a lot. Tfs.
jjcordier (79297) 2014-03-09 23:54
Une excellente composition et une superbe maîtrise de l'exposition dans cette superbe photo. Le vent en floutant légèrement le haut des palmiers crée un intéressant effet.

Lovely exotic image. I guess this is the best example for this kind of scenes. Good work!
timecapturer (49288) 2014-03-10 4:25
a lesson in composition and light management this. It is so enticing and beautifully idyllic. It oozes tranquillity and your accomplished presentation makes it just irresistibly attractive.
Have a good week - B.

The tropical setting is very inviting. The colors are extremely attractive. The waterlily in the pond provides the sense of tranquility. This sunset picture is very much to be enjoyed. Thanks for sharing.

Glorious evening! Lucky to have witnessed nature's beauty at its best, The blend of awesome foreground from end to end makes this shot look so strikingly very refreshing tropical capture. It's calm peaceful image, great perspective and dof where the focal point, the warm glow and the inviting pond are perfectly lined up to point toward it. You have done a great job of retaining mass of details throughout the picture with superb control of slow shutter. This is a mouth watering shot to be proud off, Delightful capture, Congrats.
macjake (67126) 2014-03-11 13:31
those are the famous Lilly Pads we see in Thailand? they look much smaller than other's i've seen.
I have to say, my favorite part of the photo is that long wooden deck, love the grains and colors of it.
the ambiance is pretty sweet too. Hard to resist the band of yellow/gold in the middle and the overall warmth despite some of the cooler colors.
see you around

This shot could have been used for an advertisement selling the quietness and the beauty of the hotel.
You should propose them to get a discount for your next travel.
Especially, a good work on the exposure giving details in each area inside the frame. It should have been not so easy to manage.
Graal (102634) 2014-03-12 8:38
very nice colorful image and place here. Good vertical format and composition. View like from superb postcard. I like it.
Have a nice evening.

I envy you for your photo! :)
josepmarin (58357) 2014-03-14 1:40
this is a breathtaking place! You have caught all its beauty in a powerful image, with the wonderful atmosphere of the sunset, its nice hues, and a fantastic perspective of the elements of this garden.
I like the sheens and the reflections on the water of the pond, and the botanical wealth of the garden.
The long exposure time is skillfully chosen, the image is sharp and has a high quality.
