Puerto Natales is a city most will have to stay when visiting Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. It is a nice enough town to walk around. I don’t really know what the building is, what I was interested at the time what the clouds and the sunset mood. The mountains you see in the distance are part of the national park.
Accuracy of the information below is not guarantee, something I gather through different sources:
Puerto Natales is a city in Chilean Patagonia. Puerto Natales is the capital of both the commune of Natales and the province of Última Esperanza, (Spanish for "Last Hope"), one of the four provinces that make up the Magallanes and Antartica Chilena Region in the southernmost part of Chile. The city is located 247 km (153 mi) northwest of Punta Arenas and is the final passenger port of call for the Navimag ferry sailing from Puerto Montt into the Señoret Channel as well as the primary transit point for travelers to Torres del Paine National Park, Chile.
The city was settled by European immigrants: The largest groups are Germans; British such as the English, Welsh and Scots; Croats; Greeks; Italians and Spaniards. Later settlement by Chilean people, with a substantial number coming from the Island of Chiloé, all attracted by the sheep-raising industry.
Nowadays, one of the most important activities is tourism although cattle production and the fishery industries are also significant.

lovely colour and light in the sky and on the yellow building. some of the other bright coloured objects like the ship are a bit distracting from these main items, but clearly nothing you can do about those, the overall effect id very pleasing. The foreground shore is nice and sharply detailed

Hello Way ,
A beautifully composed sunset picture , with superb soft colors , and outstanding cloudy formations . There is one thing that seems curious for me : the tilt of the yellow building . But i suppose that is your choice to present the picture like this .

Wonderful picture with lots of details. The colors and the depth of field are superb!

When such cloud formation takes place above your head, you have to find something, anything to complement the picture and make sure you immortalize them, hopefully with a good addition.
Fortunately, you were at the right place at the right time, with a divine light in the sky and quite an interesting building to present. Yes, I have noticed the tilt like Denis, as the pole next to the frame doesn't forgive and the tower is also leaning, but I am mostly amazed by the clarity and the excellence in your post-processing - this talent of yours is perceptible throughout your work, so I don't mention it all the time.
Just for the smile, the ship looks like if it's made out of Lego blocks, with its colours and cubic aspect.

a fantastic sky over a magnificent landscape, the result is really superb.
I like the colors and the perfect composition, the quality is absolutely excellent.
Congratulations and TFS.

Perfect colors and soft light. I really consider you lucky to get this sky and light and also the camera with you at that moment. :) Feeds the vision. The POV is very nice and the composition is very well thought of.
Have a nice time

Compliments my friend and TFS!

That's another very beautiful and truly attractive picture of that wonderful place!
Sharpness, exposure, chosen pov, dof, colors, contrasts, horizontal format, grey & white borders, composition and overall pp are all oustanding features here! I love the way you showed us the urban elements, that magnificent sky and the snowcapped mountains in the bg!
TFS - congrats,

Nice view of Puerto Natales, beutiful sunset light, wonderful clouds.
Puerto Natales is a pleasant small city. From there I made very interesting excursion by kuter- one full day to Seno Ultima Esperanza and a glacier.
Warm regards from New York

I really like the colors in your shot. You chose a good POV and framing to take this photo. Well done!
AiresSantos (56155) 2011-03-31 23:46
Lovely vivid colors in this beautiful picture from Puerto Natales
Excellent POV and sharpness
Very well done
Have a nice weekend
Cricri (92185) 2011-04-01 5:21
Le bon choix du POV sur une très belle architecture de ce batiment jaune, un ciel fantastique aux couleurs agréable, belle présentation
abmdsudi (32505) 2011-04-01 8:52
Love this, truely an amazing shot at late hour of the day. Very sharp and wide coverage almost all things there. I love the clear view that adds flavor to the scene and the warm light quality is fabulous, the sky is just wonderfully filled by dramatic cloud formation. The framing is perfect, with the colorful buildings set in harmony with the glowing hues of the sky. Great capture from Deep South, all the effective elements of a successful shot are there, all combined to make such a delightful picture. Good and useful notes as well. Compliments, Great effort my friend and TFS.
Have a nice wkend
leontina (170) 2011-04-01 12:34
What a beautiful picture! The sky is unbelivable, great composition, lovely colours...
Bartleby (13238) 2011-04-01 12:42
superb colors and classic composition. What more can one ask for?
holmertz (31302) 2011-04-01 12:43
I love the beautiful evening colours and the stillness they seem to radiate. It's also interesting to actually see traces of human life in this remote wilderness. Altogether a very attractive picture.
ktanska (22658) 2011-04-02 5:26
This place has certain outpost feeling. Place where sea and mountains meet. Interesting combination of a bigger building and a lighthouse. Beautiful sky with saturated but not exaggerated colours.
ingvar (2086) 2011-04-02 17:21
Magnificent spectacle of nature, particularly in sky and mountains in background!
Instead, the housing structure was probably built by the disciples of architects from Pisa? ;o)
Have a nice sunday dear Way!
mkamionka (27073) 2011-04-03 0:27
I did not get there. We were instead approaching the Torres del Paine from Argentina, and the park was the only place we have visited in Chile.
Puerto Natales seems charming but the extraordinary timing and spectacular sky helped you to create a real masterpiece.
As usually you have perfectly used the opportunity.
delpeoples (48634) 2011-04-03 7:23
This is a very different composition to your usual. Just as beautiful but concentrating on architecture rather than rugged landscape. I love the collours and the pastel sky is just magical. It reminds me of those lollies called Fruit Tingles. Do you have them in America? You;ve shot a Fruit Tingle Sky, hahahaha. YUM! Have a lovely weekend and TFS.
kiks (11601) 2011-04-04 5:54
The clouds are a realy eyecatcher on this image. NOt only the colors but also the shape are beautiful. Best regadrs
ManuMay (33975) 2011-04-04 23:31
A wonderful moment of light and colours, a superb composition and light management, sky is really great!! Very good!! And an elegant frame to finish...great work!!
pablominto (53744) 2011-04-04 23:32
The delicate colours are what grab my attention here..!
Lovely hues slightly on the pastel side, and the yellow house stands strong in the composition...
Pin sharp details and a magnificent sky!
CLODO (26450) 2011-04-05 0:07
I am impressed by the sharpness and light of your post of today. I like very much the big cloud seeming to come out of the yellow building.
Good photographic work!
Kielia (21531) 2011-04-05 3:14
you have chosen another very fascinating destination!
The clarity of this impression is striking, I guess it was really cold that day. Very beautiful colors and light and a great atmosphere of the sea!
jhm (127995) 2011-04-05 5:35
Excellent image, I think that the building a little is tilted, not important.
Thank you very much for your interesting notes.
Soft reflections of the church in water.
Colors and sharpness be superb.
Excellent captured and good composed.
Very well done, TFS.
sacimar (25969) 2011-04-05 10:17
beautiful postcard of this place! the clouds and the sun rights over them create and interesting sky, I like it, good composition with the yellow building,
Charo (51208) 2011-04-05 13:10
The photo is very beautiful and a wonderful sky colors.
Great perspective with great depth and a light and excellent definition. Bravo!
shevchenko (18725) 2011-04-06 1:03
What a beautiful city located in between the sky and water, the scene is less busy, harmonious and full with relaxing feel, good frame to show it, nice soft color and lighting, good sharpness, distinct image, well done.
Angshu (52890) 2011-04-07 9:16
Quite a different shot from you & the composition as always, is excellent. Like the effect of the sunset light on the clouds & the reflection in the water. The building is nice but non descriptive. The clarity is excellent & is apparent when we see the mountain peaks in the far BG so very clearly. I certainly have so much of PP techniques to learn from you...your mastery is quite clearly evident here
siolaw (37642) 2011-04-07 20:46
I don't know the rest of the town, but you chose a nice building to present it in this fine light filtering through the clouds. Good compo in compliance with the rule of thirds :D
Atousa (7123) 2011-04-12 22:50
You captured a wonderful sky with great colors n good light control.. the details on the ground are also interesting.. fine composition.. well done!
Best regards, Atousa
lilito (3456) 2011-04-14 12:10
Quand on voit ton image rapidement, on dirait plutôt l'Islande, peut être... Mais le Chili?
Oui, oui, avec l'Argentine, le Chili est le pays le plus européen de l'Amérique latine, d'où cette architecture que peut nous tromper.
Belle image, j'adore les montagnes lointaines couvertes de neige!
tatadalou (3975) 2011-04-24 6:34
Nice atmosphere in your photo. The clouds add a special light and provide great colours. Regards,
jemaflor (74044) 2011-05-03 12:00
Lovely light capture, well composed with an interesting depth, clouds in sky give a good result.
fabianoleite (9162) 2011-05-07 7:21
Wonderful yellow construction, well placed in the composition, which is rich, and with great colors. The sky is fantastic, congratulations!
sabermonajati (8309) 2011-05-10 11:06
the clouds are very powerful and illustrated in your photos,i like it.
paololg (31446) 2011-06-19 6:07
Ciao dear Way,
you're right, this sky, with the soft tones of the sunset, is just amazing, with an infinite depth, but also the architecture of this palace is very pleasant and interesting. The style is that of German palaces, beautifully captured by your excellent sharpness. Congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice week!
plimrn (21344) 2011-06-27 2:15
While the wonderful light in the clouds and its reflection in the water takes center stage here, the bright yellow building topped by a navigation light, the pier and the distant snow-capped mountains makes this much more than just another sunset photo.
fabbs99 (11126) 2013-03-24 20:11
Perfect landscape shot .Great clarity and sharpness.Very well done.TFS.
