Title : Dusk..!!- The last stint of the Sun
Description : This photograph was taken at a sea salt harvesting area on my way to Chennai from Pondicherry.
On my travels, the time of the day I always look forward to is dusk. One obvious reason is that this is a good time to admire the beauty of nature, when the sun sets over an unfamiliar landscape, casts long shadows and puts a soft, warm glow on everything its rays caress. The setting sun is infinitely beautiful, however it heralds the dark”. To me, sunset is the most cheerful part of the day. It is when people are knocking off, and looking forward to a nice dinner and spending time with their family—when people are most relaxed, and in their most natural element.

Judges Comments :
The directional line is strong and decisive, a very nice leading line for the eyes to explore the beautiful reflection.

Photographer Name : Tricia Seymour

Description : This photo was taken at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. We traveled for 5 months in our RV ( and this remains one of our favorite stops. The cool beauty of the sand with the big sky and colorful plants were a wonder to take in.

Judges Comments :
I love the composition in this scene, it is very well balanced.The tonality is also beautiful, very pleasing in the eyes.

Thank you and Good Luck. Keep shooting.
