    Took this for a local photo competition that was to reflect the the peace and tranquility of vacations, hopefully i hit the nail on the head with this image, what do you think. It was taken with a Konica Minolta Dimage Z2, which has been my trusty companion for the last 2 and a half years now, would like to upgrade to a nice DSLR but my bank manager keeps sayin NO! LOL

    That setting sun became huge in the haze. I like the almost monochromatic look here, almost only blacks and oranges. NO other colours. Cool.
    I like the diagonal line of the beach at the bottom as opposed to the vertical light line of the sun on the surface of the sea. I like the sea to be interspersed with these heads in the background and the two persons closer to us creating circular ripples by their movement.

    You'll have to wait and see if the jury will think this photo reflects BEST on the tranquility of being on holidays... Let us know.

    And hey: welcome to ThePhotoForum :D.

    thanks again for all your kind comments, i've been looking for a good photography forum for a while now, and it looks like i've finally found the perfect one, normally they are full of profesionals who ignore you unless you take a perfect shot or so amateur that they don't know the difference between a holiday snapshot and an artistic photograph, so its nice to find a forum the more experienced photographers are willing to help out noobs and good shots to teach you more are also available
