Iy could not miss the classic almost compulsive pic of a magnificent tropical sunset from Bayahibe Beach.Bayahíbe is a town in the Dominican Republic, located about 10 miles (16 km) east of La Romana on the shore of the Caribbean Sea. Founded as a fishing village in 1874 by Juan Brito and his family, who came from Puerto Rico, the town is now a tourist destination.Bayahíbe Beach, a public beach, is located less than a mile from the town center, and Dominicus Beach is in about three miles distance. Bayahíbe serves as an embarkation point for boat trips to Saona Island,a thinly inhabited island with extensive beaches located in a national park. In the vicinity of Bayahíbe and Dominicus Beach, numerous large resorts are located.


Non poteva mancare la classica foto quasi obbligatoria di un magnifico tramonto tropicale dalla spiaggia di Bayahibe.
Bayahibe è un piccolo villaggio di pescatori, situato nella provincia di La Altagracia a 30 km dall'aeroporto internazionale de La Romana, nella Repubblica Dominicana.
Un paesino caraibico che vive di pesca e turismo, dove le poche e piccole strutture ricettive si integrano in modo armonioso con la naturale cultura locale.
Dista circa due ore di pullman dalla capitale, Santo Domingo, e mezz'ora dall'Altos de Chavòn, zona nella quale sono stati girati film di successo come Apocalypse Now, Rambo II e King Kong.
Questo piccolo paesino di mare, con tutte le sue strade asfaltate dal 2014, è situato nel cuore del Parque National del Este e viene utilizzato come punto logistico per raggiungere Isla Saona e Isla Catalina, due delle più belle isole di tutto il Mar dei Caraibi.

Buongiorno Luciano,
Golden backlight well handled and fine silhouette of the palm trees against the sunset.
Clouds, mostly on left, had darkened that part in agreeable contrast.
Saluti for the moment taken.

Hello Luciano,
What a fantastic sunset photo with beautiful, warm colours in the sky, mixed with the darker tones of the sea and the silhouettes of the palm trees and clouds. The composition is perfect.

Bonjour, cher Luciano,
Il y a des moments fugaces qui doivent être immortalisés pour s'en souvenir longtemps après.
C'est le cas de cette composition.

beautiful heavy golden hues of the sunset in the lower part of the compo while the sky above had no clouds.the palms provided a tropical mood.



Hello Lousat,
A beautiful tropical sunset perfectly captured. I like the composition and the use of the silhouetted palm as an anchor point. Excellent management of the light and shadow contrasts.

Hi Luciano, nice sunset. Good idea to cover the bright sun with the tree. Well done. Congrats

Hi Luciano
An appropriate calming image along with good narratives and lovely warm colours on the entire scene and astounding clarity. The silhouettes provide a very nice natural frame and I admire the light quality gradation of the sky. Indeed a great time of day you've had with a pleasing composition. Lovely lens work, Congrats
Best wishes

Hello Luciano,
The silhouettes of palm trees create a quite dramatic frame to the right, which nicely balances the dark lower part of land, water and clouds. The gradual change of colours in the sky from dark blue to intense orange is beautifully captured.
Kind regards,

Well, this is always a great subject and a perfect moment of relax. I'll go there, is on my list. How great that sunlight is...


Bonjour Luciano,

L'étendue de la mer donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir certains détails des palmiers. Le coucher de soleil donne de belles couleurs au ciel. Bonne journée.

Buongiorno Luciano,

A fantastic tropical sunset with the silhouetted coconut palms along the beach adding graphism to the scene. Good sharpness and lovely warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue tones in the sky. Tfs!

Ciao Luciano,

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. J'aime le cadrage qui n'a pas trop forcé sur le coucher de soleil mais surtout sur l'ambiance de cette fin de journée sur la plage.



Ciao Caro Luciano,

This may be a beach scene but here, the emphasis is very much on mood, created by the rich, amber sky and the silhouetted trees.
Oh, you have made us envious, to be here and share this calm, romantic moment!

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)

Ciao Luciano
direi proprio che un tramonto tipico di zona non poteva mancare, del resto i tramonti sono un bel vedere da ogni parte, ma qui hanno sicuramente un "sapore" diverso.
Buon we

hello luciano..nice and lovely sunset here..love the silhouette of this palm trees,amazing sharpness too my friend! have a great weekend! dale

Hello Luciano
A beautiful sunset can´t be ignored and this one even has some special qualities with the sunset creating beautiful silhouettes of the palm trees on the right side of the composition and the sky increasing dark to the left side.
Have a good weekend, Groet Rob

Hello Luciano,
Not only pretty colours in the sky belong to a successful picture of a tropical sunset but also the silhouettes of palm leaves.
And here you have them both!
The right side of the photo is completely framed by palm leaves.
Under the trees I discover a beautiful detail: the illuminated contours of a door or window. So some people stay that close to the sea. Probably in an expensive resort.
Wonderful sunset!
Best regards, Paul

Hello Luciano,
This is a lovely sunset photo with pretty silhouettes of palm trees. Well done, TFS!

Hello, Luciano!

Really a very nice tropical sunset here, and I like very much the framing with this much of sky! This place is wonderful, I stayed in Dominicus, but I went there to take the boat to Saona Island. The silhouettes of the palm trees are great! Wonderful job!

Ciao Luciano You show a magnificent scenery that is good for the soul while calming down the rapid heartbeats before going to bed! Captured by the rules book for a natural 'as was' depiction. Saluti

Un instant de plaisir, de contemplation que l'on regarde en silence, ......superbe scène , couleurs et cadrage

Ciao Luciano,
I do dream about holidays in DR and hope may be next year I will be able to do it so I must remember your reportage.
This is a spectacular sunset photography. I like the amazing colors of the sky and so exotic appearing silhouettes of the palm trees.
Breath taking!!

Ciao Luciano, I see the new trip to beach country. I am back from China. Amazing country, I liked exotic views from Asia, so totally different culture oin all respects.

Kind regrads from Doha

Hi Luciano
a very romantic type of scene you've captured here.
I wish I could have been here to see this in person.
Its raining here today :(

My favorite part of the scene are the branches and silhouettes on the far right. and the hint of orange colour mixed with the hint of royal blues from the water. sweet atmosphere.

Salut Luciano,
tu nous présente de très belles photos de ton voyage - merci et salutations

Hello Luciano

I like a lot this attractive sunset scene you`ve captured here. A simple but effective composition with splendid colours and fine silhouettes of the foreground palm trees. Well managed light. Fine work:) TFS.

Greetings, Erling

Olá, Luciano!

Linda foto!
O pôr-do-dol está muito bonito nessa foto! Gostei da silhueta da vegetação no lado direito da foto! Achei interessante como as nuvens estão baixas, sobrando um céu bem limpo acima delas!
Bom trabalho!
