The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun's disk disappears below the horizon. The ray path of light from the setting Sun is highly distorted near the horizon because of atmospheric refraction, making the sunset appear to occur when the Sun’s disk is already about one diameter below the horizon. Sunset is distinct from dusk, which is the time at which the sky becomes completely dark, which occurs when the Sun is approximately eighteen degrees below the horizon. The period between sunset and dusk is called twiligh

una foto della giornata appena finita, direi una bella giornata e un bel tramonto.
Belli i colori e le sfumature che crea il sole, mi piace anche la contrapposizione delle linee create dalla gru e dal pennone della barca.

Bonjour, cher Costantino,
J'aime beaucoup cette composition combinant un espace portuaire, l'eau, le ciel et les montagnes au loin.
La beauté d'ensemble est très agréable à regarder.
Très bonne soirée.

Hi costantino, Helpful notes between Sunset and Dusk time. I like the silhouette in the FG which framed the sky nicely. Nice composition and sunset mood. Thank for sharing

Marvelous sun set photo with a splendid view. Very well framed with this fishing boat almost in silhouette. I like the magical colours of the sky and the reflection of the setting sun. Good photo overall very attractive. Thanks for sharing.

A beautiful sky and image, and an excellent note. I cannot believe that at my age, while I know the terms dusk, sunset and twilight, I have never really understood the differences and what sets them each apart! Thank you for teaching me something new today!
All the best

Nice sunset well framed by the two silhouetted structures. Nice reflections on the water and still white jet contrails in the sky still in the sun's light.

An interesting view of rays of setting sun you showing.
Excellent POV, beautiful colors.

όμορφη παρουσίαση του δειλινού και ιδιαίτερα του ουρανού με τα ψαροκάικα να συμπληρώνουν το σκηνικό.
Τα χρώματα του λυκόφωτος αυτή την ώρα της ημέρας είναι πράγματι εντυπωσιακά.

il tuo soggetto preferito fotografato nella situazione che preferisci: il tramonto.
Una piacevole composizione nella quale le silhouttes del peschereccio e della gru aiutano a rendere l'atmosfera particolarmente interessante.
Ciao e buona serata

Beautiful sunset picture in the harbor.
Good depth with the fishing boat on the foreground.
Best regards, Paul

i like the note you've written, clearly describing the difference between twilight and dusk...I've never really thought of it that way :)
Nice to see you put in some cranes and Industry in the bg to the right...i like that.
I also enjoy the various vertical lines from the boat mixed with the available light.
enjoy your day

ciao dear costantino
very nice picture with this very originaly sunset with the silhouette of the boat and suggestive sky
great moment dear friend

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent to/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the fishing ship, the calm bay and mountain of backdrop in evening. It looks like the tasteful spectacle as the timeless world. It's also impressive in the clouds dyed to setting sun. And, thanks for the definition of sunset, dusk and twilight.

The golden sunset light made a fabulous sight, Costantino.
Even where is aleady getting dark, there is a notable depth with the view across the bay, and almost silhouette of the fishing boat and crane, yet we see fine details on.
Cheers and Kalispera,
