I haven´t posted many pictures of that kind so far,so
it´s my contribution to sunset theme here on TE.
It was taken on my last day on Malta at Dingli Cliffs(unfortunately I didn´t have my tripod with me).
I processed the image in Photomatix,so it´s HDR.

Sunset always an intriguingh subject for photography, Krzysztof, and you combined here the island landscape with the rocky slops "falling" diagonally on the picture space.
Not an easy task, the sun appear "big" and thus with much glare - yet, an agreeable mild light on the surrounding.

Très beau coucher de soleil. La beauté du premier plan est à souligner.
Le cadrage est judicieux et fort bien présenté.
Très bonne journée.

Une très belle image de ce coucher de soleil qui semble suspendu à l'horizon. Le 1er plan est intéressant.

namaste, a subtle sunset is here. Nice colour tone. Good presentation of it with the cliff in foreground. Like the result you got by HDR. Excellent work. Tfs.

Beautiful sunset with this fireball on the horizon. I like it!
Have a nice Sunday.

I presume that it is a HDR with a single click, to me it happened to be without tripoid but with time high shutter speed (like yours) I made three shots in bracketing (with out tripoid) and the result was not bad (anyway you can always used The center shot), of course I used the system alignment of photomatix, I really like the diagonal and tones, very beautiful reflections of the sun in the sea and perfect framing....
have a good sunday...

the sun is well above the horizon and its brightness is still strong. The definition of its shape is very impressive and the intense brightness of its light is captivating. I like very much the how you dealt with that by defining the landscape in the foreground through a simple and decisive diagonal. The bright light of the sun falls on the seascape very softly and I love how its reflection crosses the textured sea and reaches the rocky foreground. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,

What a beautiful ball of fire you have captured here, and I love how it seems to be emerging from the clouds creating very interesting rays of light, soft and really appealing. I also really like the foreground you have chosen and composed so well, linking perfectly on the diagonal and it's sharp texture is a wondful contrast to the soft light of the sun. Wonderful attractive scene,
Have a great Sunday

Beautiful sunset! Nicely captured with good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
macjake (45588) 2013-09-15 17:49
great job with the HDR here, is it one photo or a collection...i know you said you didn't have your tripod, but it's still possible to get 3 shots handheld as long as they are very similar and then use the ghosting in photomatix
very good quality in the fg landscape there, and the ocean itself is outstanding with the ripples.
jcpix (6544) 2013-09-15 18:50
Not having a tripod anymore is like not wearing my watch, I feel naked without it! It's hard to get a good sunset shot when it's in full view like this, but might I say...you've done a wonderful job not blowing out the sun to where it's completely overdone and is more of a distraction than anything else. The simplicity of this scene is very befitting your note, the sensation of the sun slowly fading away, signifying the completion of your trip.
This carries a very relaxing and pleasant mood with the warm light and colors for added ambiance to the moment. I can imagine sitting there, overlooking the sea, and quietly taking in the memories of the past week. :) The gentle touch of sunlight on the foreground rock is the thing for me that sets that perfect tone to the imagery. Serenity! Well done amigo, you've captured the essence of the days end. Now, enjoy the day ahead. :) Take care.
Cheers from the other side of the sun,

This is tranquil and atmospheric shot drawing the eyes to the beautiful softness of the seascape with impressive perspective and light display. Love this scene because I thought it has a kind of dreamlike effect to it and almost surreal image you have created and thanks to your well blended exposure. The position of the glowing sun on the horizon is spot on holding the eyes so well, while the rocks in the foreground is effectively in place to complete the composition. Above all I adore the soft soothing tones turning this to look so subtle and peaceful almost painterly feel to it, Congrats and TFS

Nice bright sun by the cliff.Excellent choice of your angle this gives perspective and depth image.Excellent composition, good presentation too.Very well done, TFS.
jhm (127995) 2013-09-16 2:11
A splendid sunset, lovely with the sun to the sky.
I like very much the how you dealt with that by defining the landscape in the foreground through a simple and decisive diagonal line of the rocks
Nice depth and perspective about these area.
Sharpness and clarity are very nice.
Very well done, TFS.
A nice week wished,

anche se è la tua ultima foto di Malta, sicuramente questo tramonto ti ha lasciato un eccellente ricordo dell'isola per i colori e le belle sfumature che esso ti ha saputo offrire, dopo quelli che il soggiorno nella stessa ti aveva proposto.
La mancanza del treppiede ti ha imposto un tempo di scatto piuttosto alto ed un diaframma aperto a discapito della grande nitidezza e profondità di campo che solitamente si nota nelle tue foto, ma non si può assolutamente dire che la foto non sia riuscita.
L'aver suscitato particolari emozioni è indice della sua riuscita.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana
williewhistler (9853) 2013-09-16 3:59
I although I admire the way that you have handled the bright light of the setting sun, what impresses me most is the amount of detail that you have managed to portray in the darker areas of the foreground rocks.
A delightful shot with the triangular composition working extremely well for me.
Kind regards Les.
danos (78122) 2013-09-16 7:23
excellent the sunset view with the colour tits of the sky to make the whole scenery dreamily.The reflections on the calmly surface of the sea complete perfect the calmness of the scene.
adramad (30925) 2013-09-16 8:14
The sunsets are always a special time of the day and I guess in this lonely coast, would quietly enjoy a treat.
Very nice POV with the diagonal of the rocky coast, which offers varied tints of color, sea surface between gold and silver is very attractive.
Lovely colorful natural.
Very good both sharpness, and brightness.
Enjoy a nice day.
All the best.
marina7 (7160) 2013-09-16 10:02
quite an ouworldly sunset I'd say:) Magical light coming from the huge sun ball outlines the mystic and barren looking foreground.
Feels like a slight tilt, but it doesn't really matter.
kasianowak (3474) 2013-09-16 12:20
Ciekawy pomysl z tym ogromnym sloncem na horyzoncie i HDR-em, ktory powoduje, ze brzeg morza nie zamienil sie w sylwetke. Piekne swiatlo i kolory.
mcmtanyel (5249) 2013-09-17 10:22
This is a very nice sunset photo. The composition is excellent. The light management is fine, considering the circumstances. If I knew how to get a sharper sun at sunsets, I would make some recommendations but I don't - so I'll just admire the nice scenery.
Well seen and rendered,
mjw364 (6142) 2013-09-18 1:45
Nice golden warm tones with just enough detail in the shadow areas. Nice highlights on the water too. A difficult shot to take given the potential for the sun to burn out the highlights but you have pulled it off masterfully.
Sonata11 (31239) 2013-09-18 8:39
takie zachody slonca to az powalaja na kolana. Przepieknie uchwyciles ten niesamowity cudowny moment ktory sie juz nigdy niepowtorzy. Cudowne swiatlo jak i odbicie w wodzie. Rozmiar slonca tez jest niesamowity. Cudowne zdjecie ktore mozna podziwiac bez konca. Wspaniala praca. Gartulacje.
cornejo (22530) 2013-09-19 11:29
Krzysztof Witaj very good and nice picture of this beautiful and interesting sunset, a beautiful image with great sharpness, nice color and light. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
PiotrF (2380) 2013-09-20 14:31
Dobrze zrobiony hdr to taki, gdzie mamy watpliwości czy była stosowana tego rodzaju obróbka. I tak tu jest. Obraz zachodu nie wpada w kicz (o co bardzo łatwo), nie jest przejaskrawiony, a ogladajac Twoje zdjecie czuje sie przyjemny powiew wiatru i słychac ciche pluskanie fal. Dobra praca.
s_lush (16048) 2013-09-24 10:08
A highly aesthetic composition, with so impressive view of the setting sun in the background, picturesque multicolored rocks in the foreground and the beautifully sunlit sea. Excellently composed and masterfully captured with good quality despite the difficult condition of the shooting!
Hansaphotos (6071) 2013-09-28 12:25
Another stunning photo from your trip to Malta. A beautiful seascape and sunset photo. I really like the simplicity of this elegant composition. You achieved a stunning result without your tripod present. Splendid:)
