Sunset With Light Rays by Sol Blechman

June 2022 - Sunset With Light Rays

About the Image(s)

While you may think I sent something like this a couple of months ago, this one, with the streaks of light, plus the people on the beach is more exciting to me so I'm sort of resending. In Snapseed I warmed up the image, added contrast, sharpening and vignette.

Yes Sol. The sun rays and people on the beach really make this an outstanding image. This is a keeper and should be printed. A thought. I would consider going to and get a large canvas print with a wrap on the frame.

Very interesting photo. The darkest of the scene, location of the horizon, and the people on the beach, all these components make for an excellent photo. It's a wall hanger. Well done.   Posted: 06/05/2022 20:35:43

This "retake" of an image with better light should remind us all that returning to spots on our home turf can be very rewarding. Nicely done.   Posted: 06/06/2022 09:33:51

Sol, this is like one of those inspirational poster images. There could be text saying, "Difficult Journeys lead to Beautiful Destinations." - that sort of thing. Nicely seen and captured.

Beautiful. Everything works in this image. The setting sun peaking from behind the clouds and sending God beams down to the water. The people in silhouette on the beach add perspective and interest. At one time I didn't want people in my images but I have changed over the years and now I use them to add to the image. You were in the right place at the right time.   Posted: 06/11/2022 17:46:44

Dramatic story telling photograph. I can see it as closing scene for a movie as it sets and captures so many moods. Beautiful composition and capture of an extraordinary moment in time.   Posted: 06/13/2022 12:42:37

Beautiful subtle tones. It reminds me of one on those sunsets that you think isn't going to be that great, then the sun peeks out just a bit and combined with the rays make it into a spectacular scene. I like the silhouettes for interest and perspective.   Posted: 06/20/2022 08:12:29
