to continue from one of my previous posts, this time with evening mood over Lago de Atitlán with clouds slowly spilling over the moutains that surround the lake.
I realise that composition is "heavy" on the right side, but the sun sets where it does, regardless of my complaints, and the angle of the boat's path from where I was standing also was not ideal. but we all know, with travel photography you sometimes have to compromise.
RAW, ISO 100, spot metering, 52mm focal length.

Hello Kristine ,
You've really chosen t he perfect moment to take this shot : when the light is on the edges of the clouds , and when the sunbeams are emerging from they . The effect is superb . The composition is splendid , too , with the contrast of tha dark triangle , and the little boat in the FG . May be this one is not perfectly placed , but I'm not sure at all . And of course , I suppose you had to decide quickly ...

A nice Nature show and you managed it nicely with the elements you had. The boat is filling the foreground and helps to define the deph of the landscape.
In a perfect photographic world the boat would have been placed more on the left, but as you said we have to do with what we had. And you did it well here.

Hello dear Kristine
This photo is sensational. The silver lining around those clouds and the rays of light are just magical. What a scene, I can only imagine how tranquil you must have felt when you were there. Thanks for sharing and I wish you a beautiful Thursday.

What a beautilful light and scene. I like how the sunbeams go out the clouds, the atmosphere and your framing with this boat on the foreground.
