A beautiful sunset awaiting. A while ago, it was just a thin line of orange glow near the horizon. The moment the sun set, the sky suddenly changed.

It was an amazing feeling shooting and enjoying the sudden intense changes across the whole sky. The fiery sky lighted up the whole horizon & bringing the glow to the rocks covered with sea moss. Although the scene lasted for a while, but it was a mesmerising sunset.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

Well Gin Tay, what a start to a promising DPC career! Your first submission, and an honourable mention in one of the biggest challenges of the year, all I can say is, I’m really looking forward to seeing more from you soon…! Your high score and placing is thoroughly well deserved this is a magic sky against an equally appealing and interesting foreground. Your patience has been well rewarded with timing that has captured the very essence of a magnificent sunset. The long shutter speed has softened the water to contrast nicely with the soft greens of moss covered rocks whose lovely sinuous shapes add real impact to the scene. The exposure is perfect with excellent detail throughout including the highlights. A great image Gin Tay well done.
