The colors are outstanding! How did you get everything so dark?

I think you need to be careful about being too exact about locations. You've definitely narrowed this one down as to who this might be. I recently critiqued a photo with a similar location of 2 angels and a cross with Celtic knots. About the picture, I couldn't do it better myself. Very nice shot and very well done. - 9

Very pretty. I especially like the bird in the upper left. The colors are great. The sun is a bit bright, but what can I expect huh? It's the SUN. Love the colors in the sunrise. We are second shift people, and I don't get to see too many sunrises. The angle and framing/cropping are good, and I like how you have the brush in the forground. Nice touch. ~Heather~

Very postcardy, and technically speaking a beautiful shot. The only thing that kept it at 9 and not 10 for me was a lack of a certain spung, that magic 'Wow!' spark. But I have to save 10s for *something*, right? :-> I love how the colors are almost sepiaish. Maybe a central focus in the silhouettes somewhere might have helped nudge this over the top for me.

Ooh yes, I have been there, this would be a nice card to sent home. :)
I just love this area, the architecture, the gardens, the people, the weather.

I think that the bird is a strong addition here. Its only a small spot on the whole image, but it gives more meaning and emotion to the whole setting. Nice.

A breath taking sunset. The border and text fit wonderfully. This could very easily be a postcard. Well done!
