[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During 8 days in the Peruvian Amazon I saw spectacular sunsets and sunrises. This is one of the sunsets... I cannot describe in words the beauty, light and the colors around me... No filters used for this, colors are natural (they were more beautiful with the naked eye)
Thanks for looking

Hi selen,
very serene and beautiful image. composition is very good and great colors. bit under exposure would have been better to saturate the colors. TFS.

Wow Selen,

Let me be the first to congratulate you. It airs an aura like pastel colors. it invokes real deep mood.


Hi Selen

This is really spectacular, and peaceful at the same time. Isn't it a phenomenon that we are so sensitive with sunsets? ours is captivating, invites for contemplation and meditation. It's a pleasure to look at and to dive into this deep atmosphere...

Kind regards


Hi Selen,

You have managed to capture an amazing view. The colours and lighting make it really dramatic and beautiful.




Hello Selen,
What a beautiful image, superb colors and composition

Selam Selen Hanım,

Merhaba Selen,
İnsanda tarif edilmesi zor duygular uyandıran ve içine yaşam zevki dolduran bu muhteşem gökyüzü manzarasını kusursuz sunmuşsunuz. İnsanın farkında olmadan uzunca bir süre bakmadan geçemeyeceği bir kare bu. Çok beğendim. Elinize sağlık.

What a spectacular tropical sunset, Selen!
The colours and composition with the cloud formations are great.
The only time I have seen such cloud formations is the vapour trails left by planes, but this isn't likely over the Amazon Jungle is it?
TFS this eye-catcher,
Have a good weekend too,

Wow, what a gorgeous sky!
Beautiful Selen :)

A shot,I don't quite know how to critique, sis!You rock!You simply click beautiful shots!

Hola Selen, muy bonita, una toma con una composición muy atractiva, con excelentes tonos de color y la luz invita a observarla. Un saludo.

Hi Selen ,
Very nice scenery with lovely sky.
Amazing colours and great composition.
well done

Kind regards


This is an amazing shot. I am sure it was a thrill to witness this sight first hand. Thanks for sharing this beautiful shot - its going straight into my favorites :)

Best Regards,


Hi Selen,
I lived in the tropics for almost three months, and can remember the stunning sunsets very well. This one reminds me every bit, except for the beautiful open view of the landscape. Singapore doesn't have a good view. :)
The sweeping clouds in this photo are the best. The are thin enough to take over the entire color of the setting sun and all point toward the horizon.

Hi Selen

Indeed this cannot be described with words!!!
It's even more beautiful when you say it's completely unfiltered and i'm 100% that if i would have seen this in real life i would have simply had one of those "WOW" faces :))
Amazing colors and tones and great composition created with the shapes of the clouds.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Selen,

Explosions from soul..
How can I describe this?
For this naked truth from nature, hugs..

Enjoy life.


HEllo Selen,

WOW!!! What a fantastic picture!!! The colors are splendid and you composed perfectly the image by having the horizon perfectly horizontal and leave place for the great sky with all those kinds of clouds... Great shot and TFS!!!
