I was lucky enough to spend a few days on Easter Island last year on my passage from New Zealand to South America.... (see my travelogue)

Oh, how i envy you for having been to Rapa Nui; one of my dream destinations.
I love the shot too. Composition and atmosphere.
Have any more? Please post! Post!

Nice shot, but I would have preffered the statue closer to the brighter section of the sky for more contrast

Incredible shot! Yes, Easter Island is on my list as well. Maybe someday, when I get tired of Asia, I'll make my way down there. As for the image: very well done. My only comment would be to do a little cropping here. First from the bottom and a little, not much, from the sides. I posted a Workshop to show you what I mean. Well done, though. And, if you have more, post them!

Easter Island, now that's a travel destination. Lovely shot. Fil cropping just brings out mystical quality of the island. Very well done.

Nice Moai picture, superb shadow from the moai, very well contrasted with everything in the picture.
Scenary, sunset and colors, ok, nice clouds,
very good Moai definition, and composition.

Yesterday I saw a documentary called " ALOHA " in wich I saw some crazy guys surfing in Rapa Nui. So, today when I saw this picture - that is GREAT - I couldn´t believe... I was thinking about going there a few minutes ago.

I like this picture - the sky and the outline of the statue, the place looks really mysterious...

A marvelous contrast between the sky's hues and the statue. What a remote place to visit!

This is a rare shot, pal. Rapa Nui. Haven't come across such shot in TE.
Well, have only seen this in the movie by Kevin Costner of the same title, Rapa Nui.
Cool sunset. And having the statue in the image provided pretty interesting silhoutte.
Congrats, Piotr and hope to see more of your Rapa Nui's image.

Very different from the usual shots of the moais. Love the composition and the light.

this is one of the places on my 'place to see before I die' list. I love the silhoutte, the clouds and the colors. Good job

I am always amazed by shot in Easter Island. Reminds me of the nice time I spent there.
This is a great chinese shadow shot of a very unique silhouette. Well done!

Zachód słońca nad Aku Tahai, bardzo piękny. Moja wymarzona podróż. Byłam tam dokładnie rok temu, aż mi się łza w oku zakręciła. Dzięki.
