MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Oh, Pavan, this is miraculous scene, something I cannot believe it exists . This sky , these colors, so many people walking along the beach , looks wonderful . And what an awesome composition , with this huge boat in foreground. Bravo for this work !

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

If I were seated on the golden sands here right now, Pavan, I would not want my time here to end, such is the beauty and serenity of this scene. One of the most hauntingly beautiful photographs I think I have ever seen. I wish this were taken with my own eyes and hands, and this one shot would stand the test of time, a marker, proof that I succeeded in my dreams and goals. Perfection, and then some......

Seraphine from San Francisco, United States

i love the light, and the clouds. and the boat turned on its side. it makes a dramatic photograph, pavan. beautiful.
and no, i'm not afraid of sunsets. is death like a sunset? because with a sunset, i know there is always morning.

5-stars. This is fabulous on many levels...the composition, the dramatic angle is superb. Sky on fire and glorious colors and clouds, and the boat also implies the shape of a whale. I marvel at this image !!!

Marie LC from Voiron, France

J'aime les couleurs mais l'horizon penché retient trop mon attention de même que le bois au-dessus de la proue qui a été coupé. Dommage car l'ensemble était bien pensé

shoti from Everywhere in the, Philippines

amazing POV! and that fiery sky is truly magnificent! true, most people fear death. . I think it all boils down if you love your life here in earth too much. . if that's the case, then most probably you'll hang on to your life as much as possible, then consequently fear death. . I may be wrong.
