Nice framing of the sun. I think you might have been able to crop this it 427 instead of 480 and lost some of the information along the bottom of the pic. The water and sihlouette are good, don't get me wrong, I just think maybe you don't need quite so much of them. In fact, I wonder what the sky looks like above what's in the current picture. Maybe you could have composed this so the horizon was 1/3 of the way up from the bottom instead?

great colors

I usually find sunset photos somewhat mundane, but this is very nice. I love how you framed the sunset between the foliage. It makes the photo unique, original, and artistic.
07/21/2002 01:20:00 PM
very nice, it's hard to shoot a frontal sun.
07/21/2002 01:04:00 AM
great picture..a little heavy in the foreground
07/20/2002 06:35:00 PM
breath taking but I would prefer less of the bush to be in view and have more of the sunset/sunrise
07/20/2002 05:17:00 PM
Very cool photo. I don't think I would have changed a thing, although that bush seems like it's in the way
07/20/2002 03:20:00 PM
I love the colors in this, and the black silhouette of the plants really frames it well, I think. The only thing that is wrong with it to me is the black thing (a stump or something maybe) in the water. If you had moved a partial step to the left, you may have been able to miss it. Very minor detail. I really like this.

Beautiful shot! The sunset is framed well and the lighting is perfect. I like it!
07/19/2002 10:20:00 PM
brilliant colors
07/19/2002 03:13:00 PM
Love it. The colors are just outstanding. I like how the sun sort of bleeds into the clouds. Excellent work.
07/19/2002 07:16:00 AM
Very nice colors. I don't liek central positionof horizon line.
I think bottom part of image is not so interesting, too dark, no colors, no details.
07/18/2002 09:45:00 PM
Beautiful colors and sharpness. This is also very well framed.

I think I would have lowered the horizon to include much more of the sky and a lot less of the foreground bushes. They really dominate an otherwise great photo.

nice color for sunset; too much dark on the bottom: cropping might help it

Mother Nature provides for the most incredible photos, doesn't she? Great framing, HOT sky!

Wow, another sunset. Nicely done postcard photo, that is a complement.
07/16/2002 10:10:00 AM
This sunset is gorgeous. I love the silhouette of the trees and land in the distance that jutts out into the water. The sun just hitting the water and the colors are beautiful. One of my 10's this week. Great Job! KDJohnson

awsome shot..I really like how the sun is just touching the water
07/16/2002 09:38:00 AM

Very pretty sunset... excelleng job. And I love the red, white, and blue of the sky :)
07/16/2002 12:56:00 AM
Could do with just a wee bit more cropped at the bottom. Excellent colors.
07/16/2002 12:14:00 AM
What's not to like? Beautiful! Not very original but I never tire of beautiful sunsets.
07/15/2002 08:45:00 PM
Perfectly beautiful.
07/15/2002 08:37:00 PM
the sky steals the show!
07/15/2002 06:52:00 PM
The sun looks like it's about to sizzle in the water. The colors are just beautiful ! My only change would be to crop that right side out where the dark foreground isn't.
07/15/2002 05:22:00 PM
Gorgeous !
07/15/2002 05:01:00 PM

Great shot.
07/15/2002 02:12:00 PM
Gorgeous shot! Did you use a filter or photoshop to get the purple? (that couldn't have been natural, could it?) The colors are wonderful, deep and rich. 9 Swash
