The late afternoon weather had not looked very promising and pretty bleak shrouded with dark grey skies. But sudden change of event can get very interesting when mother nature unexpectedly turned on the lights........
Shot taken at Thu Bon River estuary, Hoi An.

very beautiful photo. The late afternoon light is always the most fascinating for me. I also like the strong contrast it creates here. Lovely daily life scene.
Have a great week!

il cielo è uno spettacolo con le sue nuvole tra le quali il sole gioca a nascondino e fa da degna cornice ad un paesaggio che ha tutte le bellezze dei paesaggi orientali.
Bei colori saturi, composizione impeccabile e nitidezza sempre super.
Ciao e buona serata

Wonderful colours and lights
Very nice dramatic sky
A very good decisive moment because the lights change fast

You're really a master in capturing wonderful skies.
Here we almost forget about the colourful boats and the beach because we are attracted to the beautiful light in the sky and the colours and the shapes of these fantastic cloud formations.
Excellent composition. Bright and colourful!
Best regards, Paul

This is quite different from most nice and picturesque photos from touristic Hoi An. The strange and fascinating light and clouds even make the ordinary boats look dramatic and the red flags have acquired a remarkable glow from this peculiar light. I like the balance of the composition. The sky is no doubt the star of this show.

Bonsoir, cher Abmdsudi,
Je suis sous le charme total devant cette composition qui s'apparente à une peinture.
La beauté du sujet est magnifiquement présentée.

Un ciel magnifique sur ces jolis bateaux colorés. Une superbe capture!

Un ciel et une lumière magnifiques au dessus de ces bateaux de Hoï An. Très belle photo!

a great view is here. I like how you captured those boats in FG with such a dramatic sky at top. Those red flags are also very nice focal points of your composition. Splendid work. Perfect light and nice sharpness. Tfs.
mirosu (12676) 2014-03-24 4:57
Outstanding photo composition in super warm, late afternoon/early evening light. The boats are well placed in the frame, sky and the clouds are in beautiful light. All looks like a very nice painting.
Very well done.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-03-24 5:10
great picture and very eye catching with its bright colored boats. The most dominating place in the composition takes the sky however and indeed it deserves the attention. Beautifully captured and with lovely colors. The light has been managed very well.
Thanks for sharing

COSTANTINO (51918) 2014-03-24 7:06
dramatic grey sky it looks so dynamic and changes
I like this low horizon line with all those
boats on the surface of the sea with flags
but as we can see the weather changes
little by little
have a nice new week

I've been Hoi An, Vietnam. It's a very charming small town. Your extremely beautiful picture brings back my wonderful memory visiting there. The mother nature treats everybody the same. But it needs excellent skills to capture it. This is a very attractive piece of picture.
ourania (27138) 2014-03-24 9:06
a fascinating presentation of this little fishing harbour under an amazing cloud scape. The colours are deep and suggestive, the light has created an intense and captivating atmosphere. There's superb sense of depth and the way the light plays with the clouds makes them look tridimensional. Your light management is admirable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
adramad (35625) 2014-03-24 9:16
Superb composition with this fascinating sky, which gives a great charm to this picture with the colorful and beautiful fishing boats, good idea to give prominence to the sky in this shot, really deserved it.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Happy start to the week.

danos (83575) 2014-03-25 7:53
great the sunset colours of the scene over Thu Bon river.I like the impressive atmosphere that created from the sun just before hidden on the horizon.
The moored boats adds an interesting optical effect in the scene.Well done.
mesutilgim (80576) 2014-03-26 3:18

You're capturing well this scape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the river with some fishing boats and the amazing sky with thick clouds under evening glow. It looks like a beautiful symphony in life.
Kielia (22913) 2014-03-26 8:47
a shot that highlights the weather conditions and superb light. You are presenting another very fine image that captures the moment, and I love the way the cloud over the sea seems to glow with an inner light. My compliments!
mkamionka (29407) 2014-03-27 2:45
beautiful ambience with the extraordinary light indeed.
The beach scene would be quite simple I guess although colorful, but the real highlight is figuratively and literally in the sky with the amazing cloud pattern and interesting play of the light with it.
eldancer1 (25600) 2014-03-27 7:33
Native boats and gorgeous tropical clouds--can't get any better than this. Awesome composition in that the inclusion of the water against the sky makes for a better reference. Good lighting control and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
nikkitta (13530) 2014-04-01 14:30
Hello Abmdsudi, you are a magician obtaining such impressive skies in a very good composition plenty of color contrast
Like the tiny red flags on top of the blue ships, well positioned in a low horizon
Exellent light management, tfs
Angshu (54909) 2014-04-02 3:18
The clouds are wonderful here and the expoure handling top notch. The lower half is in shade, yet we can see all details. The orange flags contrasts well with the dark sky. The bright part of the sky is another attractive part of this fine picture!
