On this day in Aruba there was a thin cloud cover at sunset that revealed the sun's perfect shape.
I had to put my camera to the maximum zoom (12x) to capture this shot. Anything less would have revealed too much distraction from the focus of the photo. At first I didn't like the boats that were blocking my view, but I think they make the shot a bit more interesting. You can see the people on the boat enjoying the same sunset -- but their view is a perfect, undisturbed path.

And welcome on TE.
Impressive shot with a very good sharpness despite the difficult conditions to capture a sunset. Colors are really amazing.
I think that the boat is well placed, on the contrary, to give a funny impression : the sun looks like a balloon which would be hanged on the boat.
Just a pity that the two boats are not in their whole (it lacks the top of the main mast, and the bows of the trawler in the left).
