Are there people in the foreground? I cannot see them, maybe this monitor is too dark, but changing that would spoil the look of this wonderful deep red sky.
Love the yellow of the sun, also love the fact that no areas are burned out.

Wow, you got a nice one here Steven. Did you know the two people in silhouette, or were they simply handy "prop" which Gulf beaches often so bountifully provide? Great photo.

10 Jun 2011 2:20pm

@Viewfinder: I did not know them. And cropping this square and off-center allowed me to keep other "stragglers" out. :-)

Roland from Manila, Philippines

Stupendously satisfying and dramatic and cinematic. I have a nice bright LED iMac screen that is loving this shot, and I see lovely nuances of light on the human silhouettes, particularly the tops of their heads and shoulders. Bravo.
