One more view from Surfers Paradise with quickly darkening sunset colours. The highest building is Q1 tower, where I shot On the Beach.

The cityscape and sunset colors alone make a beautiful capture, but the reflection on the wet sand and that you caught the kid in mid air is exceptionally brilliant. Beautiful golden brown tones, beautiful architecture and excellent silhouettes bringing life to the scene. I love this, thanks for sharing.
All the best

A fine beachside series, Kari. This is one of my favourites. Just enough light, very atmospheric. And the jumping kid is a winner!

une photo très intéressante de cette scène de plage. la lumière du soir, les reflets sur le sable humide sont bien gérés.
Une superbe photo avec de bons effets.

Fine Gold Coast sunset view with the deep orange glow in the clouds and beach, twinkling modern lights, and a bonus - capturing the boy in mid air.
PS: I am a big fan of cropping, especially if it is boring sky. With my schooner posting, I even thought about cropping out the American flag to avoid thoughts of our military.

like this! A perfectly captured moment that is both fascinating and full of atmosphere. The light and contrasting elements here just seem like the perfect mix and are so attractively put together. I applaud your technique and observation here in this original and beautiful image.

lovely sunset photo filled with action and very alive. Love the lights and colors. Reminds me of Jumeirah beach in Dubai somehow, just a bit more down-to-earth.
Thanks and all the best!

another sweet looking shot with all that atmosphere and moody colors/tones.
love that pinkish rosy color in the sky, works well with the high rises dominating the view.
good set of shots from this beach.

Great! What can I say, Kari? This is just one of my favorite photos! The composition and the exposure are superb! Thanks for this masterpiece!
Have a nice weekend!

The silhouetted characters and the colour of the sky provides a very special mood, as well as the wet sand catching the reflection.
I have to admit that I probably wouldn't had the idea to shoot along the beach under these light conditions, but the result is excellent, with an unusual mood and a scene that stands out from the ordinary beach photos.
No matter where you go, there's always a McDonald's sign that impose itself in the background... :-p))
I'm lovin' it!

Congratulations! Light truly amazing! Beautiful skyscrapers in backlight! Cool the child as he jumps!
Best Regards, Nino.

Une Photo prise au bon moment. J'aime tout particulièrement Les reflets sur le sable humide et les couleurs tres douces de cette capture.

Great shot - love the light and the colour tones. But what really catches my eye is the little boy you caught jumping mid air in the foreground. Well done.
