Sunset at Sint Eustatius also known as Statia.
From Statia it's just 13 km to St. Kitts and less than 30 km to Saba, but neither one is visible from Oranjestad on the Western side of the island. Out on the sea there were several cargo vessels like this tanker, probably empty ones waiting for their next assignment.

Wonderful cloudy sky, alittle bit sun between the clouds.
Also the two boats care for a good contrast.
Good captured and composed.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Kari, such a beautiful romantic scene. The light is spectacular and I really like the pinkish tones. There is an excellent balance to the shot with the yacht on the right and the sun peeping out of the clouds on the left. Excellent work, TFS and I wish you a good weekend, Lisa

Very dramatic late day sky over this compelling coastal scene.
Great cotrast between the pleasure vessels and the giant oil barge.

I like the balance between ship and sun, for me the tanker was not necessary but ok it's here even though I'd prefer it to be a little bit more on the left in order not to overlap
Have a nice day JY

very nice the sunset with the hidden sun to spread its last rays in the cloudy sky.The existence of the anchored sailing boat and the passing by tanker, make the scene more realistic.

And the sun shows up this spectacular scenery before leaving on this cloudy day!
The tropical mood is well conveyed with the humid air creating a fine sense of depth in the frame...
Maybe the scene was more romantic without the tanker in the background, hehehe..!

Great light management to capture the sun peeking through the clouds while maintaining FG detail. I also like the three point balance of your framing.
