another sunset ... (ii)

The setting sun and the ferry. It's time to go home...

The Lager view

Viewing from Expo Promenade, Wanchai, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X10 1/300 second F/5.6 ISO 100 29 mm

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

I can feel the warmth . . sunsets create such a oneness to any moment.

This is a nice capture which retains some tonal detail towards the back. In other words the camera has not thrown everything into deep black silhouettes.
On the theme of "time to go home" it was interesting to zoom in and see the jet plane leaving stage left :-)

was it really this color or did you altered it ?

29 Jul 2012 7:45am

@Veronique: Almost no processing except cropping... the sky in particular has been left untouched.

The quality of this color is quite fascinating, the divine eye in orange-red power. I love here the softness, so pure, of the sky, so delicate and feminine in a way. The sea is a little more accentuated, more masculine, and in-between in the quiet link of earth... Soothing like the week i wish to you, Hugo*

It is a lovely way to end the day Hugo... the hot summer sun cooperated with you nicely, giving us a beautiful warm orb, veiled just enough by the clouds to soften the normally harsh light. What a star, what a celestial wonder! Fantastic image :^)
