Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Shutterbug...

"As I walked out one evening,
Walking down Bristol Street,
The crowds upon the pavement
Were fields of harvest wheat.

And down by the brimming river
I heard a lover sing
Under an arch of the railway:
'Love has no ending.'"

- beginning of "As I walked Out One Evening" by W.H. Auden"

I dunno why I thought of this poem when I saw this photo. I guess it was just fresh in my mind, so I thought I would share :)

The minor glint of sun still visible on the horizon really makes this photo pop nicely... I wonder if you managed to get a few more of it earlier in its setting cycle? It's a beautiful shot.. the cloud illumination is beautiful.

The detail visible in the foreground water is also just perfect for this shot. The only minor modifications I would suggest for this would be to give it a minor rotation to the left to level up the horizon just a bit. It also would possibly be an improvement to crop off some of the black space along the bottom of the shot. Ultimately, it could have been impressive to remove that part of the image by composing with the camera a little differently and include some more of the beautiful light in the sky :)

Keep up the good work :)

Oh -- this is VERY nice. I like that last bit of the sun showing - that makes the picture.

Looks like you caught the sun a couple of minutes too late. Still a good shot though.

I love that tiny tip of the sun dipping down.

Where in the world is it summer right now? Spring in the north, fall in the south... OK sunset shot, but it's pretty dirty (spots) and noisy.

This is an excellent capture, my only niggle is that the horizon isn't straight, it's tilting off to the lower right. I like the transition from light blue at the top down to darkness at the bottom.

I love the softnes in this photo. I find the dark area on the left lower corner a bit too much, but overall great job!

Very nice. Did you see the green flash?
04/14/2003 06:24:30 AM
The tilted horizon is a huge distraction in such a simple shot. Looks also like it could have borne a fraction longer exposure - though that would perhaps have lost some colour: though you'd gain more reflection and light on the water which would bring it into the composition more than it is at present.

I love how the sun is just barely in view...very nice picture.
