This is my contribution to the April 1st 20:00 theme.
My thanks to Aleksei who made me go for a walkabout with friends yesterday evening, getting some fresh air, and being inspired to get fresh air in this simple manner more often I think.
This is taken from the cliffs outside the Saltö (Salt Island) school looking over the beach to the west.
Not many people where out enjoying the evening, but I'm glad those two on the jetty were...

bonjour Magnus, I prefer horizontal picture but this one is anyway very nice, warm colors and well framed with the two guys (or lovers) on the jetée.

Nice photo. I like the fact that the lines of the beach end exactly in the left corner. The warm colours are splendid. I also like the darker elements in the middle, because they give more contrasts to the photo. Great work!

Missed another great opportunity. I must have been in the wrong community. I imprisoned my fingers for April 1st a few hours to late.
You surprised us again with a great sunset. And this sunset is again not a boring one thanks to the excellent composition you chose.

Good morning Magnus!

Hi Magnus, A beautiful shot at dusk. You have framed the picture artistically. A very clear and clean picture. I like the color in the sky and the reflection on the water. An excellent shot.
I took a shot at that time. It was a night scene without any daylight. I did not like the outcome. So I am not going to post it.

Very beautiful sunset with great colors.
I like the two persons on the footbridge.

Just imagine that all this TE crowd (60 people at the moment of writing this) that have seen your exceptional evening shot was there! Tak, Magnus!

Very nice and relaxed picture. Great colours and composition. The two on the jetty give it that 100 % more result.

Truly a fine moment you captured here - I like the pose of those two people - the mix of lines and black shapes makes a very fine image - together with the orange sky - thanks Magnus.
Ups - jeg glemte at skrive på dansk ;-)

Du var meget heldig at himlen havde sådanne smukke farver kl. 20 i aftes, det kunne jo også havde været kedeligt regnvejr, ikke også? Et meget smukt og roligt landskab!
singuanti (15250) 2005-04-02 22:25
Wow Magnus did you have some fantastic lighting for this shot or what!? There is an extreme beauty in this simple composition. I love the transition in the sky from light yellow to the reds. Great work there and a great contribution to the theme Magnus!

Really good contribution Magnus for this 8pm theme. Good graphical effect, great light, top inclusion of the two people. A 'winner' in this theme..
jemaflor (101267) 2005-04-03 14:10
Congratulation ! Your photo is the most beuatiful ot this theme : color, frame and atmosphere. Bravo.

You got a magnificent shot at dusk that day, Magnus. I tried something like this, but failed drastically - I was in the total wrong place - although I had the same beautiful sky. The silhouette of the couple on the jetty together with the stones and the diagonal beach create a beautiful composition - topped by the distant land separating the colorful sky and the reflected light in the water. It's an image full of serenity and it's amazing that you could shot such a nice one at the exact right time. Very well done!
Hanssie (10886) 2005-04-04 15:39
Another "serenity", great 8 PM-shot, Magnus, a wonderful evening, a sunset without the sun:-))
mitternacht (1839) 2005-04-04 18:00
Yes, those two really perfect the image. The gradient of the sky is beautiful, and so are the soft reflections off the water. Very well balanced picture.

Very poetic Magnus,
i like this compo very much!
Even cropping away the sky remain a wonderful photo!
...i would to be here, you are right is a joy to go out in the fresh air, even without to make a picnic.
Compliments for the view, excellent work!
will-b (236) 2005-04-11 18:05
Stunning silhouettes... as beautiful as the sky is, I think I might be tempted to crop it out as a more graphic variant to this shot.
maciekda (19895) 2005-04-19 10:26
nice composition - i like that triangle at the borrom and all those lines above. colors are very nice. of course that couple here makes is the most important - they are so small and alone. nice work
