Une scène qui dégage beaucoup de calme et de quiétude, illusion renforcée par les couleurs uniformisées.
Un excellent cadrage et un traitement judicieux de l'image.
Bien à toi,

Beautiful sunset shot! I like the soft orange colors.

I'm a sucker for sunsets and Greece. I'm really impressed that you managed to retain so much detail on the boats in such a strongly backlit scene. Nicely judged exposure.

marvelous tones you brought.... positioning sun that way is very good... nice reflections too...

Hello Wilson! Very nice shot you are sharing with us here! The water soaked up the sunset colors for a dramatic effect. Very nice exposure here to get the nice saturated colors while keeping some detail in the boats.

There is a filtered quality to this sunset, but evidently you didn't use a filter. It is a spectacular image, however, in Mykonos, one of my favorite islands in the Aegean. If you go visit Santorini, that might just be even more spectacular as a photographer's paradise. Regards,

I love the color and the small boat. Hope to see some birds in your pict. The Birds will make the pict more tranquil (I think that)

I don't know what it is about sunsets but many never receive due recognition on TE. I like this one for two main reasons; the tones are soft and warm and the sun is in view and not burnt out. It appears from your note that you didn't use a filter so the effect is even more impressive. As for everything else; the pov is good, I like the figure sitting on the wall and the effect on the water is very special, almost abstract. A fine capture, well done.

Great late evening shot. I love the sun setting on these boats with their sails lowered and waiting for the morning sun to take them away again. Very warm colors and soft details to this beauty.

I like the way everything seems to be orange in this photo, even the ships.
Furthermore, it´s amazing how you got this "brightness" ... I think it must have been rather dark then.

je viens de parcourir un peu ton album et je me suis arrèté tout particulièrement sur cette photo il n y a pas à dire mais une photo argentique méme digitalisée reste encore de meilleure qualité il y a beacoup de nuances dans les tons et un contrate moins agressif que pour le numérique.I like very much the mood of your picture all in harmonious pastel colors.to read you again Friendly Henri Belgium Liège-Seraing

magnificent. probably because of your zoom technique and the lens , despite the zoom the photo does not lack clarity at all. the composition is exactly marvellous

Hi Wilson, A fine very moody composition with excellent placement of the setting sun behind the masts of these vessel. The colour looks like liquid gold on fancy glassware. Beautiful ambiance and serenity. TFS. Murray.

Excellent composition with all these boats under the soft light of the sun sinking. The reflection on the water is very good. Congratulations!
