Maldivian sunsets are something special, they're never the same and always boast of the most amazing colors. I love this one because it reveals the most fantastic texture of the sea in beautiful silvery hues. It reminds me of something between liquid metal and corrugated glass:)
Hope you enjoy it too.

You nailed it with your description, liquid metal and glass is exactly what this looks like. The sunset is really superb, the greatest painters could not come with better than this. A beautiful silhouette to have in the center too.

Yes, the texture of the sea is different. The reflections of the clouds create one faint image of boxer with a single glove.
Oil pastel effects, this is the feeling I get from this image of silver and grey shades.
If I were to click the image I would just copy the POV but not include the land/sand which is distracting to mine eyes.............is my personal opinion and nothing else.

Hello Marina - Quicksilver indeed! A beautiful and delicate palette of colours where the textures and light on the water are are breathtaking. I would have preferred that the small area of sand was not in the shot but that does not detract from this natural beauty. Lovely! Warm regards rosemary

dreamily the place with the sunset to spread its mouve colour tints over the place.To go and to stay there in the middle of the sea must be a great experience.

un luogo da sogno, la tua foto lo dimostra.
Il cielo è uno spettacolo, con nuvole e sfumature molto romantiche, che raddoppiano l'effetto con i riflessi del mare.
Bello scatto, ben composto e ben eseguito.

Great colors. This is really a beautiful sunset.
I would have liked to see more sky than water.
annjackman (20931) 2013-08-08 22:48
A very aptly titled image. The shiny, silvery sea is very beautiful especially with the reflections of the sunset. The shapes of the clouds and the silhouetted pier add so well to the beautiful scene.
Kind Regards, Ann

you´re right-the water surface looks absolutely stunning.The overall color scheme is delightful.Especially the blue shades coming into silver,metallic tones and the way they mix with last rays of the sun.For me-awesome!But also these low hanging cloud formations add some nice atmosphere to the shot.
It´s definitely not another common sunset shot.Great composition!
Have a nice weekend

The light is very special, beautiful shades, I like the slight ripple of the sea and the silhouette of the pier and the bungalow or whatever, excellent composition and reflections on the water..the sky also is a good part of the image....
have a good WE...

Hello Marina, the complementary pink and blues combine to produce a very pretty evening scene.
The dark outline of the jetty adds a nice interesting touch.
SWEETFREEDOM (23506) 2013-08-12 4:05
simply beautiful, i agree with your notes about the sea in fg. very nice colors and light.
adramad (40654) 2013-08-12 8:48
A sea of silver and a dreamy sky, enough ingredients for a photo so magnificent, like the one here show us, perfect backlight of the cabin and the soft shades of pink sunset.
It's a nice picture, very well done.
Perfect sharpness and adequate brightness.
Have a good evening.
Didi (59066) 2013-08-14 9:40
Very good Marina
Nice peaceful ambiance and good lights management
maloutim (9639) 2013-08-16 1:23
What a dramatic seascape at sunset ! The textures of the sky and sea are simply amazing !
Strange how the reflections of the troubled sky give a completely different effect in the mirror-like sea.
It's as if the silhouette of the pier and pavilion acted as transformers of moods.
Great capture which could have been added in "Decisive moments" too !
macjake (61442) 2013-08-18 11:28
yes, liquid metal would have been a good title for this photo too!
and you're so right, it looks as if the water is mercury!
love the clouds and the silhouetted subject in the middle.
the clouds and the tones make the shot.
wish I was here :)
limielski (0) 2013-08-18 11:49
Yes I enjoy ! Clouds looks like before a storm but I know the weather is fine and the sunset and its colours is fantastic. The elegant and professional frame completes the whole amazing composition!
Best wishes and have a nice evening
Waylim (25368) 2013-08-20 22:05
Yes, we can see the sunset here is very special. Love the silver and gold combination in the sky, I particularly like all the pattern and light reflected in the water. I can almost feel like it's moving the water. The silhouette of the pier makes a strong point to draw us in. Excellent quality photo and good composition.

A scenery influencing calmness and beauty at it's best.
