This really is a stunning capture. Nature's paintings are hard to match on a canvas. So you have captured it with your camera... simply beautiful magic.

Your composition has treated each area with it's deserved importance...the pier, the horizon, the clouds and colors, the water and even that bit of breaking wave heading toward you on the beach. Perfection all around and a pleasure to view. Best of luck my friend. Stay in touch~

    Thanks much for your review Becky, even thought you left FAR and will not see this review. We will all miss you a lot!
Comment from Nancy Montana

Yes, it does pay to be patient. This is a stunning example of that. The colors are delightful. The clouds add such a fine accent to the colors of the evening. The blue of the water is just perfect for the setting off the bright colors of the sunset. Thank you for sharing.

Comment from cleo85

I like this composition very much. The silhouette of the sea bridge is a eye-drawer. It draws our eyes into the photo and leads our view to the horizon. The sky has beautiful colors which nicely reflect on the surface of the low waves. The photo is well balanced and framed.

    Thanks for your positive comments on this image. When I took it I knew some day it would be on a FAR sunset/sunrise contest.

Yes it pays to be patient and you have proof. This is a great image. Spectacular setting and amazing color. A painting from God.
So glad you captured and shared this very pleasant image. A great focal point using the dock to add drama and depth as well as dimension.
Very well done!
A great contest image. I wish you the best of luck!

Comment from Sange

Photography requires 4 things:
Understanding of light
Steady hands
Knowing where to stand.

Beautiful view Allan. Love your POV with the pier coming in on a diagonal the water in foreground leading us to the pier/ gazebo and Gorgeous colored sky.
All camera techs are spot on.
Nice work ;)

    Maybe I will add another item to your list of 4, namely post processing. Sometimes magic happens when you hit a few select keys in Photoshop! :) Thanks for the review.

Comment from Linda Wetzel

Yes it does! Your patience paid off as the gray blue cast the early night sky takes as the last coral and golden rays of the sun sink below the horizon is spectacularly beautiful. I love the glow the coral colors give the distant horizon. The pier with its silhouettes of its stanchions and people are the perfect finishing touch.

    I just tried to update this. Apparently it didn't work. I am so sorry I didn't mean to do that. I apologize. I hope I did not offend you.
