Greetings from the Critique Club!

Not a bad sunset shot, and a light amount of fallen snow, but this time the voters wanted to see something much more dramatic - big flowing clouds, thunderstorms, insane amounts of snow. This is Ok but it's just a sunset, and those danged trees are in the way! The sculpture(?) or pile of chairs in the lower right third looks like it's meant to be a focal point, but it's too small and insignificant, so the eye goes roaming looking for more.

If this is the kind of photography you want to pursue, get a tripod (even a cheap one will do) and use much longer exposures and much smaller apertures and ISOs to get the kind of dramatic sunset shots that do well here. I don't know many Texas landscape shooters, but maybe ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Kobba, who tends to like wildlife, has seen some areas that would be good for sunsets. Try PMing him and see.

Hope this helps
