Nice composition. I wish the flash could be a bit wider so the bottom left of the net is lit like the rest os it.

Aw bummer I thought I had a good shot. But it's shots like this one that bring me to realize I havn't yet managed it. This shot is an inperational shot that shows how flawless and lovely a shot can be with just the addition of somthing as siple as a net. Without the net this might have been a 5 or six. But just adding a simple net you managed to win one of my tightly hel 10. Great shot keep up the wonderfull work.

what an interesting image. i hope that this is not being overlooked in this monster-sized challenge, and that you are getting some feedback. this type of image doesn't typically score well, but it most certainly has its place, and i thank you for sharing. good luck here, and in the challenges yet to come!

Very nice! Fishnet gives more intrest than "just another" sunset.

Excellent control of the exposure over the foreground and background.

Returning to comment..
This is very different. Typically with a sunset like this it's either left at that, or the foreground subject is completely black. Nice effect with the netting, though the light is uneven. Overall a good shot.

I think the net is competing with the sunset. Looking at your title I see that is the point you are trying to make.

Very pretty shot! A bit over-processed (perhaps), but I still like it very much. Excellent. (The net and post almost appear to set in front of a back-drop)

Interesting perspective. I think the use of the flash takes away from the sunset, which is truly stunning. I would have liked to have seen more of it, i.e. back up a bit, no flash, change the focus to the land and sunset behind, however still using the post and netting in the image. Good Luck.

Spectacular. There are not enough sunsets shots like this. I have no idea how you managed to flashlight the net so well, but you've done it brilliantly. 9
