Probably the perfect sunset photo.
Thanks to all you "heavyweights" for the enthusiastic feedback. ^_^
looks very good..
Just perfect, Wilson. Let me congratulate you for this shot!!
what a picture!! one of the best sunsets i have come across in recent times..actually, the subject is not very unique, and we get to see so many sunset images everywhere...but something is making this picure very special..and IMO, it's the COLORS! what a great light!! simply beautiful. thanks for sharing
Very beautiful, indeed a postcard (at its best). I think the Hawaiian people get accustomed, what a pity... (ok, I`m jealous). Regards, Carsten
7/6 Amazing colors in this beautiful shot! Rgds, allon.
WOW. Just got here through someone elses image that we both commented on. Man can you capture light!!! I would totally burn up my alotment of 7/7 ratings going through your gallery but probably will. I figure if some can go around giving 3/3 to everything I should be able to put numbers on images that I like. This is a stunning example. Darn this is good photography. Takes a lot for me to get worked up about a sunset, but this does it... Dave
Nice image and gret colors!
Yeah, some people have all the fun Very clever to hide the brightest spot of the sun behind the tree and get the perfect silhouet. I call it "shot two birds with one stone and get the stone back" approach. :D One bravo and two sevens.

Okay, Wilson ... when are we allowed to start being envious?!
Wonderfullly sone!! 7/7!
I am going to call you Sunset Man! Great shot. Perfect exposure.
Good clean image. Love the colors and crispness.
7/6 I am charmed with the tropical late afternoons and this one is a good sample of them. He me remembers those that I have attended in Cuba. Excelent sky colors.Regards.
Wilson, I'm starting to look forward to your work! This is very well done! You obviously didn't take that here in Seattle! ;-)
Take another holiday! Wilson, Take another holiday..... give us all a chance! Excellent as always! It is a bit postcard like though.
Wilson It's like a postcard. It's often seen but this one stands out!
Wilson Another really nice one. Does have a postcard look to it since it is so perfect. Interesting how a "looks like a postcard" comment can be interpeted as a positive thing or a negative thing. To me, it is a positive thing. There is nothing wrong with a photo that has mass appeal and does not necessarily trivialize artistic value.
Tuhin, Nilesh, Jesus, Pawel, Allon, and Carsten, thanks for your comments. I really didn't have a postcard in mind, but this lone palm and setting sun just worked out that way when I tried to compose it best I can. Thanks. ^_^

Perfectly composed, splendid gradation of light and colors from bottom to top, and hiding the sun behind the tree like you did prevents this image from being seriously compromised. I might be tempted to lighten so very carefully the mid to upper sky just a bit Wilson. But that's it. Excellent image. 7/6
Vincent, thanks for your feedback and suggestion. Alway appreciate it. ^_^
"A Tropical Sunset." Feedback is appreciated. Can you imagine some people see this almost every evening?!
