Greetings from the Critique Club
By Inspzil

Composition - Excellent composition. The silhouette is really good and the colors of the sky are beautiful. Good framing with only a little of the skyline showing at the bottom and the rest just sky. The vast array of colors across the sky is great, with the reds and oranges at the bottom and the pinks and greys across the top. Very well done

Technical - The hard part of this pic is the taking of the picture at the correct exposure. You did really well on this one, judging by the way I like to see my own photos come out that are similar to this. The sun is pretty hot in this photo exposure-wise, and it should be because IT'S THE SUN!!! Now for the sky, I have to say its a little oversaturated looking at the pixelation. Its just a fuzz too much in my estimation and that's why it pixelated. I'm sure thats a lot of the reason the other colors look so good. I reckon you gotta take the bad with the good. I don't think I'd have done the same thing.

Overall - Beautiful photo and well done for the most part. I never get sick of a good sunrise or sunset. Hope this could be a little helpful for you. Good luck in future challenges. - Inspzil

This photo (and title) reminded me that some of Houston's pollution is due to all of the MEAT that is grilled there! That sky sure does look kinda greasy.....

Somthing is messed up with the cameral or its been color saturated too much because the sky is getting grainy. Nice silhouette photo. Reminds me of how my Oly C-3000 used to take sunset/sunrise photos.

Sooo many sunsets (not to pick on yours). Seems a little saturated. maybe a simple white boarder.

Houston we have a problem: Weather! Excellent colors you captured, the different color layers from top to bottom are very effective.

A beautiful image. A bit of a burn in the lower right part of the image though. Great effort, good luck.
