Sunset of Korea
Contest Number: 101 Contest Theme: Best of 2014 Lens: smc PENTAX-DA* 60-250mm F4 [IF] SDM Camera: K-3 Shutter Speed: 1/4s Aperture: F22

The beautiful sunset was..
Actually I'd been expected the omega (something like an omega character) shape of the sunset..
So waited standing at just the position facing sun..

I uploaded this picture on the 'Post your photos' at the first time on this and many members and supporters wrote replies and advices. Especially I thanks to 'Rimfiredude' for an advice to crop the foreground from the original image.

Firstly I intended to place the sun between the trees and the right side rocks of the island. If the 'Omega' was appeared, I would really do that.
But I changed my mind to take this photo in which the sun is sinking just over the island instead of the omega.
And I like this bw sunset with oriental feeling.

Thank you.

Thank you Hydrophobiciguana! But I'm sorry for that the image became unclear.
I didn't know about how to resize an image without loss..
Original image is much more clean but I had to change original to very small size image like this.

Thank you.
