About the Image(s)

Shot during sunset near Uluwatu temple, Bali. My attempt was to capture the couple shooting something in a different direction, sunset, and waves through a rock formation silhouette with a wide opening that looks like an imperfectly torn paper border.

Increased contrast and removed any haze (adding a bit more contrast) using Affinity.

Shot using Canon 60D at 135mm, f/9, 1/200 SS

Very nice shot Dhananjay. At first glance I thought it was almost a staged "engagement" type of shot - but for capturing a moment - well done. If I lived there - I would be cataloging that location as a great spot to pose pictures in both daytime and sunrise / sunset situations.

The funny part was initially they were more like distractions in my frame, so I was waiting for them to leave. But suddenly they turned the other way, I thought that made a good moment to capture.
I totally agree with the sunrise/sunset comment. Absolutely worth visiting if living in that area.
Thanks for the feedback.   Posted: 06/13/2022 21:14:31

Not something I would have ever considered or more importantly thought of trying....but this is striking and will certainly add it to need to try! Perfect moment and sky! I love the frame's irregularity and stark contrast to the beautiful sunset. Very nice!   Posted: 06/17/2022 20:54:10

A strong image Dhananjay with good use of sunset lighting. Compositionally strong and well captured. My only concern is that dust spot, above the cloud line to the right of the sun. Other than that minor detail, a great image.   Posted: 06/23/2022 05:49:51

Beautiful sunset colors and the frame. The two persons inside the frame added an interesting point to the image. The silhouette is also amazing. I also spotted a dust spot. It can be very easy to remove by lightroom or photoshop.   Posted: 06/25/2022 23:25:44
