A Last Look

By Minty805
Many thanks to those who voted or commented on A Day At The Museum, and especially to Bob for his valued award.
This was taken on the day before the latest lockdown, when we drove over to Totland Bay, IW, and walked up onto Headon Warren, which overlooks The Needles and Alum Bay, seen here. We'd gone particularly to see the heather, which the area is know for, and I had a sunset across the heather to The Needles shot in mind, but, surprisingly, the heather still wasn't out.
As the sun started to drop away, this couple very kindly sat in the foreground, doubtless doing the same as us, and enjoying a view it seems we won't be able to enjoy, legally, for another month at least, unless they live in the area, of course. Will the heather have been and gone by then, I wonder?
Initially, I did this as a complete silhouette, but finally put a bit more detail back in the shadows, to give some added depth. Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking. Allan

Nice sunset and a pleasant change from the usual red/orange, but i feel the sun is too dominant - see my mod.

An excellent into the light image. You just want to stand and watch it descend out of sight. I would imagine it would go a lot redder, before it disappears. The two spectators give it scale, and a focal point.

Thank you for the comment and the mod, James. I like the change you've made; it alters the dynamic quite appreciably and is, in effect, almost a different image. I'd say there is a case for both approaches, but I greatly appreciate your input.

Beautiful sunset Allan, lovely composition and POV.

A wonderful scene with gorgeous light, well captured Allan.

You've caught a beautiful sunset, Allan, and your composition is spot-on. Well suited for a silhouette, or, as you say, bringing out slight detail in the shadows...both variants would work equally well, I feel.

Very lovely, Allan, love to be there right now. It's a splendid view from the top looking out across the bay, and nicely presented here, making it especially appealing 👍
