photoblog image Sunset

Sunset

This shot was taken from the edge of a jetty. A very relaxing time spent, waiting for the sun to go down, and boy, I was not disappointed. In real it was much more beautiful than I have been able to render here.

Well, Ayush, you have made it look gorgeous.
Ayush Basu: It made me view sunsets in a totally different way, Ray. And I should like very much to take more of these as and when possible.
I know how it is to try to capture a sunset, and feel you've not done it justice... but this is so beautiful - and the rest of us won't be able to imagine it being any better!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much for that, Elizabeth. This sunset made me realize I have not shot many sunsets and inspires me to do so more often, henceforth!

Wonderful!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Chris
Looks pretty good to me Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I am pleased to here that Bill
I guess it would be more beautiful on the spot, but what a pleasure this morning to your photo! a wonderful sharing smile
Merci
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Magali. You are too kind. I was at this spot for quite a while, before the sun began to set and there was every indication that it was going to be a magnificent sunset.

[je vous remercie beaucoup. vous êtes très aimable. j'étais à cet endroit pendant une longue période avant le coucher du soleil et il était évident que ce sera un magnifique coucher de soleil.]
I know what you mean,Ayush,this not only applies to sunsets,but many scenes,however you made the best of it,and the rest is in your personal memory card. smile
Ayush Basu: Ah yes, that is also one way to look at it and thank you for pointing that out. That personal memory card could do with many more of such scenes grin

I know what you mean. The camera never does make the image we see. I had some sunsets back in Sept or Oct. that were stunning but they all fell short of what I was seeing.
Ayush Basu: This evening made me look at sunsets in a different light, really, Mary.
Well if it was even better than this then it must have been fantastic Ayush.
Ayush Basu: And it all was over in less than ten minutes, Brian
This is gorgeous Ayush! I can't imagine how it was in real.
Ayush Basu: I was rather attracted to the subtle and continuing interplay between the cool blues and warm reds, Richard.
Breathtaking
Ayush Basu: I am pleased you found it so, Hollie
Thank you, thanks to you I was in paradise.
Greetings from cold Polish.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the warm compliment and best wishes to you too, Lucia

I love the colours, this is magical. I am glad that you did not forget to capture it.
Sometimes something is so beautiful, I just forget....
Ayush Basu: I was tempted to just sit and enjoy the time. But I had been at this spot for some time before the sun began to go down and got plenty of indications that it would be good to have a remembrance. Thank you very much, Astrid

One thing you can say about the sun Ayush, it never let's you down.
Ayush Basu: No, Chad, it just goes down regularly smile Thank you for the visit Chad

That pink cloud looks like a swooping eagle. Beautiful.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for pointing that out and it's funny you should say that since this was taken in Langkawi which is famous for its eagles. The word Lamgkawi itself is derived from eagles smile Very good, Louis!

Photos can never do justice to this wonder that nature repeats day after day.
Ayush Basu: And to think, I have missed many of these glorious sunsets.
Such a lovely shot!

It looks spectacular, cannot imagine what the "real" thing looked like
Ayush Basu: At the spot on the jetty, the changing colours really seemed to be drawing me in, Anne
Having it go down over water with those magnificent reflected colours makes it even more dynamic, Ayush. Superb!
Ayush Basu: Delighted with your reaction Beverly, and it certainly was very dynamic.

What great timing! The colours are great. Did you enhance the colours during post processing? They look amazing.
