This yacht was moored just off the shore from Villa Beach. It was a dream-like setting with the boat bobbing lazily on the waves and the golden clouds on the horizon.

I believe that it was like a dream... Its beautiful... Composition is very good, colors are great. Regards. gr
djnik2004 (1698) 2004-11-11 15:51
Great work, amazing colours in the sky!! did you use a polarizing filter?? reminds me of the film 'the truman show' when he is in the boat trying to escape, very dream like!
ChristianS (2997) 2004-11-11 15:54
Jonathan this photo looks indeed like a dream. The light is fantastic and the colours and the sky are beautiful. The off center position of the sail boat makes the composition very good. Well done!
Pompey (1117) 2004-11-11 16:08
Beautiful picture Jonathan, the cloud formation and colours make it special.
A lovely simple composition.
karan (42) 2004-11-11 16:16
wow.this is one of the best pics i have seen,really dream sequence.Gr8 pic taken
hojper (2832) 2004-11-11 16:30
Yes, truly a dream-like setting which you captured very well. The colours look extremely original and the composition respects all the golden rules of thirds to a tee. For once I could almost wish for a slight frame (and normally I don't like frames)
Homerhomer (4080) 2004-11-11 18:01
I love this one, the colours on the verge of looking unnatural but I like it this way here. The intese blue of the water matches perfectly with the intense gold of the clouds which turns into a pleasent blue of the sky above. The boat itself is perfectly exposed and positioned.
You have a winner here.
Lio (827) 2004-11-11 18:36
Hello Jonathan !
It is a very good picture. I like it very much. There's a good balance beeween the boat and the biggest cloud and colors are simply incredible.
colinbrenchley (6431) 2004-11-11 19:21
I used to be a meteorologist in a previous job so I am always impressed by good cloud photoes. Whilst it is a good photo of towering cumulus, with a rain shower underneath and cirrus clouds they are also a prefect shape in the perfect position to balance the composition with the boat. Excellent shot
glitch (761) 2004-11-11 19:22
Turned out nice again Jonathan!
Colours are amazing in this photo. So too the contrast in the clouds, giving so much depth!
The boat is great in the foreground.
Very well done.
Note to self: must make a point of going here!
ElenaGr (450) 2004-11-11 22:28
Wonderful job Jonathan! Excellent composition and amazing colours. This place looks really like a dream...Good sharpening and contrast, beautiful sky with fantastic lights and shadows.
Well done, it is a really great shot!

Hi Jonathan, it's another great shot straight from the paradise, an excellent boat placement, fine low light creating the atmosphere and superbly saturated dream colors, it's kust splendid !
cool_s15 (4050) 2004-11-12 8:30
wonderful shot, very nice color.
I like the details of the cloud. Very nice composition.
scalerman (26900) 2004-11-12 12:48
wow, this may be a favorite for me of yours. Magnificient cloudscape and color. Looks like film, argentic.
HellCrow (8) 2004-11-14 23:36
Wow that's greatttt ! I like the contrast of the color and the "so blue" sea !
rabani (9645) 2004-11-29 1:55
I really love those clouds. Punchy and an artist impression. I always love cloud scenes and this is good. That yacht is pretty solemn here.
larspersson (178) 2004-11-29 8:19
Jonathan, by far outstanding!!! What a capture of the oceans realm, the sky and the lonely boat, straight up on 1st place!!!! For me it could very well be Prince Caspians boat in "The Cronicles of Narnia"!
taivo (1843) 2004-12-04 11:58
Not only a dream, but a also looks like paradise. The colours are nicely saturated. The clouds formation are impressive. I also like the sharp horizon between sky and sea, which means there is hardly any haze. Great colours and composition.
danyy (0) 2005-01-09 10:23
Très joli ciel dégradé avec des nuages bas sur l'horizon agréablement teintés par un soleil très bas. Le bleu de la mer est en excellent contraste avec les colorations du ciel.
sophia (162) 2005-01-13 20:18
Great photo it is soo beautiful, sharp and nice colors,it's very dreamlike, it looks like a magnificent post card.. I love them clouds!

Indeed "An ocean Dream" :)
daninhoc (690) 2005-01-20 10:43
Its a great shot. The ship is a bit dark and the sea a bit noisi but the colors, clouds and image formation is great!
Im interested in what you changed in this shot! Can u post the original as a workshop?
TomteTim (434) 2005-01-20 10:55
Beautiful ! The sharpness of the clouds and the colour contrast between clouds and sea is fantastic. Did you do any pp and if yes, what did you do ? Very good work !
Maru (0) 2005-01-20 10:57
great composition! the colors are superb with a good sharpnes and a very good cropping.
I love the different tones of blue of the sea and the sky with that golden clouds in between.
The ship makes the magic here :)
Ger (0) 2005-02-04 9:10
Nothing much to say here J, except that I'd like to have been on that yacht just then! Serene!
mulder (232) 2005-03-10 15:58
Excellent photo. The clouds very close to the horizon on the left side are a little too rusty to me, not really natural sunset colors. If they could all be made the color of the clouds on the right, it would be excellent. Very beautiful none-the-less.
kingdragon (407) 2005-04-02 11:32
I will give 3 critiques for this photo

There's not much more to say about this Johathan, it is perfect in every way.
I'm not sure where the smiley faces have gone, but this has to have a dark green one.
Zanni (6108) 2005-05-01 3:18
Splendid image: I like the strong colors saturation, the clouds formation that breaks the uniformity and the golden reflection on boats.

Everything has been said, but still I want to give you 2 points fot this masterpiece! The colors are wonderful and the low light on the boat balances perfectly the fact that there is no sun on this sunset scene. Great photo! Congrats'

très jolie prise de vue, la couleur des nuages est impressionnante et la mer garde un aspect bleuté.
veronika (6058) 2006-03-31 9:52
Jonathan,this is simple great shot.. i like the colours and sharpness.. it reminds me on the Hemingways book "The old man and the sea"-my favourite one:)
USErin (189) 2006-04-19 9:17
I love the the blue and yellow/orange reapeat themselves in the sky and water and horizon line and boat reflection. Also the height of the clouds on the left balance out the photo with the height of the mast on the right. Nice job.

Ocean Dream indeed! What more could be said. When in Rome, well in my case; Japan, I will say what the Japanese say "Sugoi." With their enthusiasm it couldnt mean anything more then the utmost best.
The colours, framing and composition are out of this world!
gramma (3519) 2006-08-20 5:16
Beautiful colors. Contrast and sharpeness are also very good. A nice shot !

I checked out the workshops on your photo, and I've gotta say, the original is by FAR the best of them all. Great job! Great exposure!
captainsgirl (3448) 2006-09-23 8:34
how beautiful, the bright blue water, those specatular clouds casting a reflection on the water , and the sun setting on the sailboat all add up to one awesome photo for me...TFS
srcohiba (118) 2006-09-23 8:51
beautiful clouds and lighting. Nice composition too. A tad noisy though.

It surely catches attention.
