I'm not sure I like the "window" perspective. Great colors in the sky. Very picturesque. It sucks that the coolest part of the sky is right over the power pole and wires!! Nice capture - Inspzil

Don't you just love the sky when it looks like this. Great catpure. I really like the bright colours.

dramatic shot, very well executed.

Pretty sunset! Very nice! (sorry, but ugly telephone poles/wires) I really like the red mountains in the background. Suggestion - re-crop just below the dark sillhouette line (removes the street lights, etc.) and move around, stand in a truck bed (get above/away from the poles/wires). 7 Swash

not a traditional landscrape, absolutely gorgeous sky, looks like it is on fire. Don't you wish you could saw down some telelphone poles? My main beef is the window frame in front being so prominent and distracting, plus needs to be rotated slightly.

Wonderful Colors. It is a shame that this photo is very busy.

Magnificent sunset. Wish the vertical obstruction could have been left out.

Wicked looking sky. I take it thats a window frame. Shame you couldn`t get outside to take a shot. Still worth an 8.

It's a great sunset although the window frame and (to a lesser degree) the powerpoles do detract from the image - my eye is drawn from the sunset to the thick black line. Couldn't you have shot closer to the window, or even through the open window?

stunning sky but really is ruined by the pole (I bet lots of people will say its a Skyscape not a landscape!!!)

Very colorful! 9

Wow, if I'd been there with a sunset like that I'd be outside in an instant!

The colors on this are absolutely amazing. Is that a pole or part of the window? I also notice what looks like a scratch or streak on the glass. I think the pole or window frame in the middle has to go. I really think this photo would be better if you had taken the time to open the window or gone outside. I don't even mind the power lines in the shot.

holy colour on earth good shot 7

What amazing colors. Was there no way to get the shot without the window frame in the way? I would like to see that. The frame doesn't really add excitement to the photo for me. The sky kind of takes away from the general landscape though. not really much landscape to look at. Focus and clarity are nice, and lighting conditions were perfect. Nice photo. Good luck in the challenge.

If only you could have caught htis moment without the posts of the window in the way..very distracting. The beauty if the picture almost stands on it's own...
01/14/2003 06:01:58 AM
great image other than the thin snakey looking on in the bottom center of the image. what is that? 7.
01/14/2003 01:48:47 AM
Too bad you had to shot through the window. Take away the frame and the telephone poles and this would have been absolutely awesome. What colours!
01/13/2003 05:50:18 PM
I am such a sucker for a sunset!!! Absolutely wonderful colors - do you think you could talk the power company into taking down those lines for you?
01/13/2003 05:36:05 PM
This is just beautiful! Where is it? I don't care for the window frame though, I find it distracting. Otherwise I like it.
