I'm not one for sunsets, but this picture is amazing. It's so incredibly serene, I think I need to go to sleep. You've done a great job of acheiving the painting-like feeling that is so effective here. Nice job.

Someday I want to be on a boat and see a pretty sunset like that.

Just gorgeous.

Simply beautiful. Peaceful and serene. If it could have been framed to eliminate the two boats on the outer extremes, it would have been almost perfect, for me.

A beautiful sunset in the harbor. (any harbor). Most everyone can identify with a picture like this. After reading through the forums about the types of photos that just don’t do well with the voters, among them are babies, pets and “sunsets”. – This is much more than just a sunset.- I think you will do well with this one – It’s just a little dark for my taste, I’m giving it an 8

Some sunset photos don't have very good color, but this one is really nice

Kinda looks more like sunset mooring, but that's O.K. Nice sunset and reflection. Most of the boats are really hard to see (dark). 7 Swash

really nice... looks like some mornings here on the Maine coast

Boats on the border are cut in half. Would be better without them. Put horizon little lower as well.

Nice tranquil scene, good saturation, no graininess, not very original but lovely all the same.
07/18/2002 09:50:00 PM

Nice shot, though almost too dark. I would be tempted to tweak the gamma up just a bit.
07/16/2002 06:05:00 PM
could do without the boats
07/16/2002 04:32:00 PM

Pretty good

nice... i would like to see a more saturated and kind of darker one...
07/15/2002 11:25:00 AM
Nice job. I think if you had zoomed in a bit more, or tried a vertical shot, you'd have something even nicer than this one.
07/15/2002 11:03:00 AM
