I have to respect your phones capabilities with this photo. I really like the suns rays coming out from behind the clouds and the way the light reflects on the clouds and water. The silhouettes of the boats are a nice added interest. So very nice

Dang, this is a breathtaking photo! The colors and the rays of light are absolutely perfect. I like how you included the ships in the foreground too, it adds so much to this picture. Beautifully done!

Good strong image Steve and a good strong sunset,the various boats add a bit of interest as well,the only thing I can see that might have improved this is to have taken it a bit earlier and got a bit more detail without ruining the silhouette effect...Brian

    Thanks Brian. I took dozens of photos of this particular sunset. Some earlier some later. I have posted many of them in the past so am running out of available options of this scene. I appreciate your sharp eyed review ~ Steve

A most impressive sunset. I like the look of the silhouetted boats on the dark water and the radiating rays of the sun. Great composition and beautiful colors.

Awesome sauce SF!

LOVE the colors here and the magnificent sunrays that only God could paint.

But you managed to capture what HE wanted you to see :)

Love the dark silhouetted boats in the water and the gorgeous, drop dead colors!!

Excellent SF!

Lovely piece capture here, i love the level of detail that comes through and the varying degrees of such wonderful colour from the sun rays beaming through the clouds. Great job

Five month vacation, that cool. Very nice shot. You have captured the sky and God rays very well, they literally glow. Good color that really make the scene. The back light on the clouds shapes them and brings them out. The mountain base makes a grounding point for the sun. I like the barely visible boats on the water and the reflection but wonder if they shouldn't be just a bit brighter. (That could also be my monitor not being set as high as yours.) Well seen and photographed.

    Thank you Charles for your sharp observation. Yes it was too dark and there was not enough color reflecting on the water. I made some changes and I think it looks better now. Thanks again for pointing out the needed changes ~ Steve

Comment from Artistic Chick


This is truly beautiful. I assume the rays splaying upward are added? Very nice touch. It would have been a great photo for Song Title contest (which they had more of), I think of "Knocking on Heaven's Door", and so many more. It is not only beautiful but provides a great story telling opportunity.

    Thank you so very much for your artistic review and cool comments. Yes it would be a good scene for several songs. The rays were Not added. It was one of those sunsets with the clouds in just the right place to produce the rays. This often happens from this this POV on lake Chapala. Most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. Thank you so much again for your wonderful review ~ Steve

Oh FS, this is dramatic, deep,
with light that is just spellbinding. An exquisite
beauty of the night that only you have the talent to display. So glad to see you promoting this one...that alone deserves the extra star!
Beautiful work FS. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you so much VO/B-. I think this is the first one that I have promoted. Not sure why. Maybe because there are so many new people here I just wanted to share with them a cool scene and give them a chance to earn some money. Anyway you know just how much your review and special words are to me. Your Extra Sparkle make Tarzan very happy ~ FS
