Ciao Marco :o)
First of all, i'm not tired of sunsets :o) I can't shot them with my camera unfortunately, so i enjoy to see yours. This one is so particular ... purple sunset ! Very peaceful atmosphere, sotf colors in this wonderful sky ... serenity ... quiet and nice place you captured ... nobody on the beach, i like that ... to breath and inspire me from the sea :o)
Bravo ! Great note too as usual, thanks.
exstremely clear and beautiful space of violet, and full of mood of course. I especially like this tender color of pale violet.
in Japan since ancient times violet is noble color, people have been admiring violet as artistic and moody color. I think the reason may be that violet has two elements of blue and red. blue is calm, clear and sad, addition to depress. red is passionate, strong and delight. violet has these two contrary characteristics at a time...
anyway this air of the seashore with nobody in off season is deeply expressed, and violet sky and clouds reminds me fresh memories of many summers.

How could we be tired in front of such beauty! Sunset always brings a good feeling to people who take the time of looking at:) This one with a sky of an unusual color brings an attraction moreover for this photo. POV and colors are perfect! Very constructive note. Thank you and at the next sunset picture! :)
Nice landscape. Great colors.
Light and shadows are lovely. I like it a lot.

good morning Marco!
Outstanding color and mood. A meeting point of the three elements - water, land and see. The see needs some rotation anticlockwise.
You have made a absolute beautiful shot, great POV, excellent colors wonderful sky and real good mode. You have done very well. About the sunset, I dont know about the rest of TL members, but from my point of view, I like them very much, espec. because they are so difficult to make real good.
And you are right, it is tilt a "little" I think it is because your focal length, it can make some strange lines.
I have made a workshop, it have removed the most off it.
Your photo deserve with og without tilt a lot off points.
The best regards

Nice beach shot with good light, but the sea level looks if the tunami is comming. Hope you kept it dry.

Ciao Marco, grande effetto prospettico e splendidi colori, certo che è più comodo fotografare i tramonti sul tirreno che le albe sull'adriatico:)
Bravo, ciao Silvio

Wonderful pastel sunset colors of violet. I would just level the sea horizon. Moody & atmospheric. Ciao!

The colour tones are wonderful, but the tilt and/or distortion of the sea in the shot is just enormous! A small part is due to tilting, though not all - since the umbrellas and life guard house is more or less straight. I think it has to do with the distortion of the lense. Around 18mm the distortion is the highest, especially towards full aperture. So, I guess most of it is due to distortion. Barrel distortion would not be so visible through the center of the picture, but more towards top and lower horizontals.
Have a look at the following page.
" At 18mm the lens suffers from quite hefty barrel distortions (3.3%) changing to strong pincushion distortions at 35mm. The situation eases at bit at 70mm and 135mm. "
Great link to learn more about the 'sweet spot' of your lense!

Indeed a nice coloured view the pink and purple colours are striking in this panorama. Regarding your p.s. Dennis is in my opinion right, the pictures shows quite a large barrel distortion. Neverthe less I like the way it is presented and it is coming along with a fine note.

I love the colours and mood of this image, the tones are superb.
I can see that you've shot this at a very wide angle causing some distortions and would have done a WS, but see that Jens has done a superb job on that already.

ho trascorso un fine settimana a Marina lo scorso anno a casa di amici e mi piacevano le visioni come questa.
Grazie di avermele ricordate!!
Buenas noches Marco,
Otra foto tuya que me encanta, eres un artista!
Colores y composición muy buenos, dan ganas de estar ahí...
En fin, genial trabajo.
questa me l'ero persa. Inutile dire che adoro il viola, e purtroppo non mi è mai capitato un tramonto come questo. Sull'inclinazione è gia stato detto tutto, ma lasciami aggiungere che i colori che hai in questa foto sono meravigliosi!
Hi Marco. A number of cameras and /or lenses produce the curve. A lovely image regardless with good colour and fine detail. A workshop if I may just to show that some digital image programs can fix that curve. or go close to it. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on ‘Windeward Reflections I’

This is a fantastic shot of the twilight. An excellent view point and various hues of warm tone are making the view more charming. Reflective light of the wet sand is looking interesting, well done my friend.
many thanks for sharing this image.

The color therapists say that putting some violet in your life helps you to better use your imagination, even re-balance your life, or remove obstacles, also to calm overactivity, and to energize from depression...
I wish that this theory were that easy to put in practice... :))) But one thing is certain!
Seeing your shot I remember that...
"Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around." ;)
p.s. Did you see "Vanilla Sky"?
