In case anyone is wondering why the green in the foreground looks unreal, here's why:

I took the photo a few yards in front of my trailer at the campground and the lights behind me were green and intense. I wish they weren't there.

This is an interesting reversal of the usual approach. Mostly people used a bright-colored subject against a muted BG, but you used a colored BG to make your monochrome subject stand out. Excellent job.

wow! this looks like a computer animation or something. This doesn't even look real! Good job capturing the colors, and great composition. Awesome location!

Beautiful! I'm not sure I like it for this challenge because I don't see anything bursting, but it's still a great picture!

Not really sure what your title means, but i am very young. This is a beautitul sunset, and you did very well on it. The border is also adding to it.

This is an otherwise nice picture but I don't see a "burst" of colour.

This is an unusual sunset photo for sure. Great sense of space, light & dark.

too much softening/denoising in the foreground, otherwise nice scene. too much of a border IMO
