Taken during my July trip to Kusadasi, Turkey. My friend was hiring out a car so I waited patiently outside whilst he filled in the paperwork. I spotted the sun setting over the other side of the road. I got my 70-300mm lens and using the longer end zoomed into this children's climbing frame. I fired off a couple of shots then this young girl just stood in front of the sun - magic! I just happened to be in the right place at the right time! Taken just off Ataturk Boulevard.

One of my favourite shots of my holiday and indeed of the whole year.

Pease vote if you like it and all comments will be very much appreciated, if you have the time.

Many thanks for looking.

Andrew.

A nicely captured moment Andrew. The warm tones add to the appeal of the composition and the eye is led straight to the sun and the child on the structure @Just one more slide before bedtime'.

There is also some nice detail here too which could have easily been lost with this sort of shot.

Well done!

Andy

Thanks Phil for the modification, maybe the image can do with a slight crop and warm up. Thanks for taking the time to upload a mod, much appreciated. I agree Kusadasi is great for Aegean Sunsets (and silhouettes!). I hope you enjoyed your holiday there.

Andrew.

Nothing at all wrong with this shot but I always feel compelled to try a mod. I cropped the left to lose the trunk and then warmed up the shot to intensify the colours.
A different take on sunset shots beautifully executed. We were in Kusadasi last year and treated to a lovely sunset every night.
Well done.
Phil

There is often a large slice of luck involved in our hobby. Of course you still have to be able to capture the moment when it presents itself. Nicely shot.

Just a very small, nit-picky point. I don't quite understand what went on with the stripe down the left side. I know Andy Hale insists on shots being exactly 1024x768, but if you'd simply got the black wrong, I'd have expected to see a corresponding one down the right side. I'd be inclined to crop it off, or make it black so it doesn't show up.

Hurray for serendipity!! Smile
