Antonio, this is fantastic and very well composed! The colours are superb and the light is fantastic. The silhouettes of the two people comes out very nice against the background and the distorted reflections are beautiful. Well done!

I'm stunned by the quality of colour which you have reproduced here. The richness of the colour and the glossy appearance of the water on the sand is truly incredible. The shape and form of the two dancers on the sand makes this a real stand out picture.

Fantastic colours in this. The silhouettes are in fine detail, and very black including the shadows! Excellent contrast, the brightness at the top to the darkness at the bottom, all with this monument to this art.
How did you achieve this rich colour here? Filters, p-p?
Really good result Antonio.

Very good colours and also good shadows attained here, I like the sync movement of this martial/gymnastic art, really good capture and well done

Aí Negrão. Tá ótima essa. Ótima sincronização. As cores estão absurdas. A de ontem tb tava demais, mas não consegui postar um comentário.

Excellent graphism with superb sharpness, color & contrast. The reflections in the wet sand are a bonus. Good work!

Bom Dia Antonio, well I'm... speechless ! Such a beautiful photo with so much emotion in it, it's wonderful, I like very much the delicate and subtle purple tonal ranges, the sharpness is outstanding as is the composition with the dancers posture and reflection.
Bellissima !

A great way to display this traditional self defense dance. Reflective reddish magenta making a dark silhouette. A contemporary graphical expression.

Bonitas cores e bom contraste entre elas.Esta foto esta excelente.Boa composição e enquadramento.Gosto do reflexos das pessoas na areia.Bonito céu,boas cores e nuvens.Bom ponto de vista e profundidade de campo.Bom trabalho.

On ne peut qu'être en admiration devant un tel sujet. Couleur contraste tout y est “ombre et lumières”
Génial quoi !!

Fantastic photo! Superbe colours, composition and silhouettes.
The reflections are fantastic and really adds to this photo.

Great, don't know how many shots you had to do to come to this perfect timing but worth in any cases.

However, i'm not too convinced about the purple cast you chose which makes your shot look like an artificial advertisment for Slimfast, another Diet helper or even women tampons...
A good old golden warm light would have been totally suited IMHO.

Brilliant!! Love the colors.

Oi Toni
Adorei suas fotos. The one I liked the most was the one named- The Capoeira. Great composition, loved the rich ligh refelecting colors( reflections), shadows, and magnificent silhouettes . I also enjoyed the one called Cerro catedral .

Composition is great, the colors are unbelieveable, the moment is superb.
Super well done,

WOW! This one is perfect ;) I don't have the words to describe it... I love everything in it, but the colors... oh the colors! ;) Excelent work!

Muitos parabéns :)

great action shot!
not so easy to take.
silhouette of the pair is nice/sharp with a brilliant sunrise in the back!
you framed this shot well.
job well done.

good colors Anntonio

Antonio, silhouettes against the sunset are a common theme on TE but it is rare to find a subject as delightful as the one you have captured here. The timing is perfect to catch these joyful children with their feet in the vertical position. The violet hue of this image is very attractive as are the reflections.

Yes indeed it was just lovely, walking with your foot in the air, it looks like you are dancing on the water, very nice pic

Hello Antonio,

This is a really nice photo, I like the light, colors and the silhuettes. Very nice work. TFS.

Esta foto e simplesmente fantastica. As cores e as duas figuras em silueta parecem ser de um outro mundo. Pena que nao ha muitas marcas no chao documentando a capoeira. Desta forma da um pouco a impressao de uma foto pousada.

Excellent and such a beautiful colors Antonio. Its a truly amazing moment with so much attitude to it.. And at the same time - so peacefull! Great Work!

Hi Antonio,

How a rookie in the art of photography might criticise your outstanding photos? I just look at them and I get more and more surprised about the perfection of them. They are absolutely artistic. Nothing to say but to stand up in from of them

Meus parabéns Antonio!

Thanks for sharing.

Bonjour Antonio
Belle idée, super bien faite, j'adore les coleurs du ciel, le reflet, les ombres, vraiment magnifique

Dear Antonio,
I am glad that i saw this work of yours. Excellent composition and great capture of Capoeira. The moment of the action captured is great.Excellent silhoette effect. just leaves me wondering how nice the colours are and if any filters were used either in camera or post processing. JUST GREAT WORK

Ecelente foto.as cores são absolutamente inacreditaveis.Tirada do momento certo....Os meus parabens pelo excelente trabalho.

Ola Antonio,
This is a magnificient silhoutte photograph! You have captured the motion very well and the low point of view is wonderful. Besides, the purplish shade of the scene makes your photo look incredible!

Les couleurs sont splendides, j'adore.

Excellent contrast. I love the silhouettes and their reflection against the saturated background. Nice timing. Regards
