Dockyard sunset

By CaroleA
I thought it was time I posted something a bit different and this is one from the archives, shot on 35mm film. I scanned it from the original, so I don't know what the quality will be like once uploaded. I like the colours but I know the picture is slightly lopsided. I tried to correct it but couldn't.

I took this shot early one morning on a boat returning to Limassol from Israel: I had to wait for ages until the sun hit the right spot. It's a great reminder of a trip of a lifetime for me.

I'n not sure, but I suspect the horizon is not completely level. But, putting a minor niggle like that aside, I think this silhouette works very well against such a nice sky.

A lovely toned sunset, throwing the crane into relief. Because it's in silhouette, the crane isn't showing its proper persepective, and I think that is why the horizon looks tilted. I could be wrong mind! Anyway, I like it. Click

Thank you everyone. I was afraid the scan wouldn't do the image justice, especially regarding the sky. So I'm chuffed on RC and thanks for looking.
