Sunset image from Napili Beach on Maui in Hawaii looking towards Molokai.
Initially I wanted to use my telephoto on the sailboat to achieve a large sun setting behind but, as the sunset progressed I noticed the towering columns of clouds above the whole scene. I then switched to my wide angle to more completely capture the scene.
Taken handheld with a Mamyia 645 camera with Ektachrome Professional slide film. Scanned with a Nikon Super Coolscan 9000 ED film scanner.

A nice sunset over an island precious to the heart of all Belgians.
I wonder why the clouds allways accumulate when the sun sets down ;-)

This is a wonderful panoramic shot of the coast, with the sailboat providing a lovely focal point as a counterpoint to the columns of clouds. The composition, perspective, colors and resolution all collaborate like the instruments in a symphonic orchestra.
