Hi Kazim,
Now this is an excellent sunset shot. Very beautiful and saturated colors. The composition is perfect. The silhouettes have nice sharp detail in their forms. Clarity and DOF are great.

Hi Kazim,
this is such a romantic shot.
The red colour is marvelous, also the reflection of the sun. The bird and the boat bring so much live into the shot, very well done, I like it, bye
