swimming into the night by XSini swimming into the night by XSini
At this evening the water was nearly as warm as the air. I sat down in the water for this shot. :aww:

Thank you for your kind comment. =)
I really liked this one,... a hot day culminating in a burning line at the horizon and finally melting into the night. The beauty of nature is such a big gift.

Unfortunately you don't post your exif data for more qualified (haha) comments , but if I may say so, I'd have liked to see a lot more of the water here and for it to take up more of the image. Now I don't know if that would at all have been possible with the focal length you used, so maybe my comment is complete crap. Anyhow, it's beautiful! :D

Thank you very much for your detailed comment. :thanks:

I held the camera 5 cm about the water surface, thats my.. erm.. Schmerzgrenze. :XD: The beach was busy at this evening and I did not want to have more people in my frame, thats why I decided to take this one sitting in the water. ;)

There are no exif information because the guy on the left side didnt wait till I corrected the camera settings. So I took him from the first shot and inserted him here. Besides that I needed to remove hordes of june bugs, they have been everywhere. :D

For information:
focal lenght 18mm (my minimum, as I used the 18-55 for this); F11; 1/600sec; ISO 500. High ISO and short exposure because I dont want always use it the other way round, I'm a beginner so its useful to try a lot of different settings in my eyes. =)

Alrighty :)
Thanks for all the details - before you think I'm a pixel peeper or tech freak though, let me explain better why I asked.

My main interest was in the focal length used, as this way (with your info that you were actually in the water) I kind of can imagine what perspectives would have been possible.
You're a sky lover (me too, and I don't mean the dA group of this name), so I see the tendency to make the sky prominent in the picture - but does the above third of it actually mean anything to the picture? My idea was: What if you tilted the camera down a bit, getting more of the quite beautiful reflection in the water (it seems like you wouldn't even have more people in it), and losing that top part of the sky that may not make that much of a difference really - or maybe it does and I don't see it, it's really just an idea.

I'm rambling. As said before, the main point is that this is a beautiful pic :)

Please, dont feel sorry for communication. I like communication a lot, and I'm always interested to hear different opinions. You are gifting me two additional eyes, thats a good base for my improvement. :D

I tried to follow the 'rule of thirds' when I took the picture, and the frame with 2/3 water and 1/3 sky did not please me like this version did. It felt like the dark water pulled the picture down, that is why I decided to give the sky more space. But as I'm still learning there will surely be opportunities to try it the other way round. Maybe when I have more time to conquer a good position for the shot. ;)

Thank you very much for your feedback - its much appreciated. :hug:

I see what you mean about the water being too dark, as I now realize the bright reflexion is actually taking up not that much of the whole. I presume it's because too many people would have been in the picture, which I wouldn't have liked either, so you made the better choice.
I guess this is actually a situation where either a graduated filter or sandwiching (which in the digital age seems to have become "HDR") could make a difference, so thank YOU for this pic and all the thinking it got me engaged in :)

I like dusk colours a lot, fading perfectly into each other.. intense and soft at the same moment. 'Blue hour' is that called here. =)
