The Silent Sun, Gili Meno Lombok Indonesia

    Newer Older

    Time is critical here, it's hard to find this kind of moment (a boat and no clouds) and good quality shot at the same time, I have to do it better next time and need more luck (My dream is to catch the siluet of the boat right in front of the sun, but failed this time).
    Location : Gili Meno Island, a small Island in Lombok Indonesia. Taken using Canon 30D + Canon 300mm F4 L lens + 1.4x II extender.

      Very nice sunset shot. I like the boat - without It wouldnt be so great.
      What could have been done better is the crop. Like many other people this days you seem to forge that your shooting a pictures, not a movie. I don't like this wide "movie-like" frame. It makes the pic look fake.
      That's why I suggest the crop.
      Everything else is fine: great job!

      Like the richness. I like the original panoramic frame. And the clarity is really nice.

      Good colours and an interesting view of a boat. the crop could be improved as there is quite a bit of uninteresting stuff around the edges of the frame. For me the horizon is a little too high which takes away a little from the wonderful sky. Still a lovely shot.

      (Oh dear - this picture is covered by suggested crops, which I have to say I find annoying!) I like the way you've composed it yourself, and I think it would be a pity to lose any of that gorgeous sky, or the texture of the waves. I actually think your timing was perfect - if the boat had been directly in front of the sun, its outline would have been brighter, but it's too low to have made that perfect "boat in front of sun" silhouette that you were aiming for - so I think you might have been disappointed! This is such a peaceful, calming scene - I can almost hear the pan pipes playing meditation music in the background! Beautiful colours in the sun, and the clouds around and in front of it give an extra layer of texture. Lovely shot, well done!

      Nice moody sunset, and I like the way the clouds flow over the sun. the lighting and exposure are great and the silhouette of the boat and that wave bottom left really add some interest. There's a lot of nice detail in the sky and the sea but overall with the way it is composed, I just find the balance a little off, with nothing really on the right of the shot. I'd maybe try a crop closer to the sun, but i won't add another note as like tsu-nami I find the crop boxes a bit distracting and unnecessary.
