Fotografía tomada en Mollendo, Arequipa, Perú (for English, scroll down).

21 de octubre, 2011 a las 5.45pm COT, dia algo soleado con nubosidad.

Un atardecer siempre es fascinante,  es el momento más impresionante de cada día, el mismo que espero con placer.

La ciudad de Mollendo es un balneario con amplias y extensas playas de arena limpia, muy concurrida en época de verano y muy tranquila el resto del año, ideal para un relax completo en cualquiera de sus estaciones.

La camera - Fujifilm FinePix HS10 con un Fujinon 30x optical zoom lens, F2.8 (Wide) - F5.6 (Telephoto)


Los fotografía es fascinante, es un hobby o profesión  de la que uno en ningún momento  desearía dejarlo, en el caso de un amateur, como es mi caso, es un constante reto el lograr cada vez una mejor toma, por lo tanto nunca esta demás hacer muchas capturas del mismo objetivo y luego poder elegir la que nos complace para compartirla y verán que los resultados son buenos.

Muchas veces dejamos fotografías encarpetadas, las mismas que no nos convencían, pero luego de un tiempo al observarlas más detenidamente vemos que son muy buenas, pero no fueron las elegidas en su momento. Estas fotografías posteriormente las publicamos y tienen mucho éxito.

This photograph was taken in Mollendo, Arequipa, Perú, on October 21, 2011, at 5:45pm. It was sunny with some clouds.

A sunset is always fascinating - it is the most impressive moment of each day, and I always look forward to it with pleasure.

The city of Mollendo is a destination for beachgoers wtih wide and extensive beaches with clean sand. It is very popular during the summer season (Southern Hemisphere) and really laid back the rest of the year. It's ideal for complete relaxation in any season, though.

Photograph is fascinating; it's a hobby or profession that I have never felt like giving up. In the case of an amateur, as in my case, it is a constant effort to get a better shot each time. So, don't hesitate to take a bunch of shots of the same object; you can decide later which shots you would like to share and you'll be able to see which produced the best results.

A lot of times we save photographs that we're not sure of; then later after some time passes, we take a closer look and see that they are a lot better than we thought although not the first ones we had chosen.

Later those shots may turn out to be the ones we choose to use and end up being the best ones.
