    Oh, that's so fascinating. My eyes would expect to see a horizon, but instead they see a irregular coastline covered in a astonishing light. The lighting in the clouds is also very appealing. This is really very good!!!

      The colours are beautiful, Speedbird.
      And Tommi has put his finger on another reason the image is so compelling –the horizon that turns out to be the complexity of the coastline…and then there’s the darker layer of cloud, producing a line that is like an horizon in reverse. That completes the composition. Wonderful.

        Absolutely amazing shot, and so are the colors as well!

              Nothing like a sunset from "above".

                Not as "dramatic" as some of the sunrises and sunsets featured on CVF lately, but still worth a posting.
                Sunrise over Pasir Panjang Container Terminal, Singapore yesterday morning:




                Sunset as seen at OPL West, Singapore last night:

                  I particularly like #402.1 with the soft light in sky and sea contrasting with the stark outlines of the cranes, and #402.3 beautiful subtle shading of colours in the sky.

                    A bit more "dramatic" sunset last night:

                                I was looking back at your previous set and in addition to the comments I made, I should have remarked on #402.1. It has an enveloping subtle silver tone to it, and the water is like silk.
                                In these later ones #408.1 has a beautiful sky, it glows. And in 409.1 the silhouetted tufty tops of trees and the solid block at the right are a fine contrast to the dramatic sky. I think it's well balanced.
