This is just beautiful. Speechless. Breathtaking. Better than painting.
Thanks for sharing.

It is almost like a painting. For those of us who enjoy solitude, a heavenly place. You can see the glitter of the sand. It is really fantastic.
Maybe not stranded, but waiting for the right captain.

First, let me say that I loved watching the photos in your gallery. You have a very nice work.
This one today is no exception. The great colours and good composition make the picture really very attractive. Well done.

Very strong composition. This shows a different side of Brazil than that with which I am familiar.

I can't say enough good things about your photo. The subject matter, sharpness, muddy reflection, contrast between the clouds and the dunes, even the title are all very, very well done. I'm going to mark it as one of my favorites.

What a great shot. A simple but strong composition. The light is wonderful. This goes to my favourites.

A terrific shot, Michael, with lovely, moody colours and an enormous sense of isolation and stillness. Congratulations on this one!

Une belle composition pour cette peinture plutôt qu'une photo. Les couleurs sont très douces comme le paysage présenté.

Good morning Michael!
I found your gallery and it's just wonderful!
I've chosen this picture of yours because it's so beautiful and a masterpiece - looks like a painting - and because it shows a bit of my Country!
Congratulations for the super job!

I always enjoy seeing your pictures and this is no exception.
It's a wonderful image, less spectacular than some of your others but equally impressive. I like the simple but beautiful composition and the subtle earth tones, but for me the most striking thing is the soft matt quality of the light. Somehow it just seems to glow from within. The reflection of the boat in the muddy water and the threatening but delicate sky are wonderful. Surreal indeed, like an image from some remote outer edge of the world.

great wide shot, good light/exposure and soft colours. I like the depth and the perspective that the boat creats in this iamge
very nice composition
ban_man (528) 2008-04-25 9:32
Shot like a leagend. I'm spellbound.
barni (15751) 2008-04-25 14:48
Une vue avec un sujet simple mais sacrément bien fait.
mark_mk (266) 2008-04-26 18:04
well what should I say? A wonderful picture! There`s something real special about that picture, I can`t describe it, it`s just WOW! A masterpiece! Nice colors and sharpness (didn`t expect anything else from a Hasselblad), by the way, you`re almost the only one here on TE with a Hasselblad, I know they`re pretty expensive, that`s one reason, but the cameras are probably the best in the whole world.
I took a look at your gallery and I have to admit your gallery is just breathtaking, my compliments, you have unbelievable shots!
Oh, by the way, of course I have to add this one to my favorites, great work!

Nothing to say but stunningly beautiful..
Thanks for sharing

It could be a boat brought on some other planet in the universe. Your latest shots are great.
cfreire (11741) 2008-04-30 13:39
Wonderful shot very well captured with excellent control of colors and lights. Good POV and framing. Splendid work. Best regards, Consuelo

Je viens de découvrir ta galerie. Superbe travail ! Toutes mes félicitations. Il ne suffit pas d'avoir la chance d'être là au bon moment, il y a quelque chose de plus qui se dégage de tes images. Belle esthétique !
benklea (260) 2009-06-02 15:17
Wow, what a striking image! I saw this on the featured image on the main page and it immediately caught my attention. A very desolate image with the lone boat and dunes in the background. Good composition but amazing colors. Love the tones in this shot. Fantastic image!
nagual2 (1456) 2009-06-02 15:30
Very good shot.,it looks like another planet.

TFS. This goes straight to my list of favorites in TE.
