While staring at this beautiful sunset in the mediterranean see, this motor-equiped glider was crossing the horizon.
I like the way the glider looks so small near the ocean and clouds.
Tech: Framed and resized.

I agree with Paolo. This is a great shot!!! First off, you have a beautiful sky and sun. But it is the man in the hang-glider that really makes this a special photo. Congratulations!!!

I really like the shot. Was a Polariser Filter used? I have a feeling it wasn't. It would have given the clouds more defintion and sharpness. The colours just look little washed out. Very good none the less.

Very dramatic sunset, the glider serves to add perspective to this grand scene. Well done.

It is a very nice shot.
the subject seems so small in front of the giant ocean.
the sky and the clouds are fabulous!

The sky is amazing. I like the way in which the rays of light bore the clouds. Well balanced and good compo. And the glider makes it more original. Well done.

Wow, awesome shot. What great luck to have captured this glider as he flew into the scene. It adds alot to the picture.

this pic is just great!
the sky is fantastic, and the apparition of this UFO is fantastic and gives a sense to this pic..

this is a really fantastic work. Even though a bit soft, still well composed and exposed.

I think you should reduce the brightness to create the darkening atmosphere. By this, it will also make the sun beam much visible and interesting.
I assumes the aperture is a little to wide.
I will put up a WS where the a minor exposure is adjusted to give another look.
