Hello Saeed,
An unusual sunset beacause of the setting!
Good low point of view gives a very special effect and you do well in including the fine lines of the wave...
The image is well exposed and the composition is close to perfect!

Hi Saeed

Another moody nad very beautiful shot from you.
I've seen similar shot from you, my friend and i'm still amazed by the clarity of these waves.
The colors and exposure enhance the atmosphere and the small clouds complete the composition, too.

Bravo and TFS

Hello Saeed,
great shot... the POV is incredible, like swimming in the oceon while the sun is setting.
Gorgeous colors and very nice textures.

Salut Saeed
Quel magnifique coucher de soleil ! Les couleurs dans le ciel sont sublimes, et ces grosse vague dans l'océan sont tout simplement fantastique. J'aime beaucoup aussi le reflet du ciel dans l'eau. Cette image dégage une sensation de paix et de tranquillité et de force en même temps.. Bien joué !
Merci et au revoir....JP

Hi Saeed,
I hope you were able to keep your camera dry. It did however gave you a wonderful POV. The texture of the waves look really smooth to me, something I do not see that often. There must have been no wind. Great work on the exposure, keeping the sun in perfect condition.

Hi Saeed, splendid sunset and great sea, wonderful fascinating composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Saeed,

You took it WHILE you were swimming??? Is it a waterproof camera? It is a very nice image with that liquid smoothness. The light and color is really nice.

Evelynn : )

Hello Saeed

I like the composition.Interesting how you lined up the wave with the sun.Beautiful colours and reflections.The sky is magnificent.Well done.TFS


Hello Saeed,

This is another wonderful capture from your holiday! You froze the wave in time and presented it to us in beautiful golden light!


I find this composition better than the previous ones. You followed the rule of thirds and positioned the sun into one of the most powerful areas of the composition! But what makes this composition so special is the way you used the crest of the wave to lead the eyes of the viewer to the most important object in your picture: the setting sun. Very well done my friend!


What could be more beautiful to watch than the golden colors of a beautiful sunset? The chromatic simplicity is one of the elements that make the picture outstanding.


The contrast between the orange and dark hues is excellent. It defines every shape of the uneven water surface.


The exposure was very well controlled to capture all those rich and warm color tones. I appreciate the fact that you took care that the areas around the sun don't get overexposed. The reflections in the water were also properly exposed. The rich details in the water surface are the result of a great camera handling!


Very good focus on the wave in the central area! The DOF was well controlled to keep details sharp throughout the picture.

An excellent post from you! Thanks for sharing!

Hi, dear Saeed.
Once more your great artistic shot of sea/sky subject. Beauty of the surf are reproduced by your excellently. Substance of wave, tender impressive colours create a nice mood and impression. Bravo and my best wishes.
