Shot on the 31st. Phew, cut it close. Luckily this fantastic sunset showed itself.

Blend of 3 exposures. Not edited on my own computer, so hope it the colours are right.


Aiyayaaay, I guess the foreground did not go down well :) It's actually the same stream flowing by, not an out of focus rock. I think it needed light to give it definition, because yes, I see now that it looks like brown blur :)

I feel like kicking your butt Philip. This could very well have ribboned or at least top 5. However..I believe I would not have to do it as you might be kicking yourself. Fantastic colours and element working so well but this could have been in another class. This photo had your signiture class pp work but I did not think it was yours for obvious reason. I put it down as you having less time to take pictures and being enclosed in the office... :)

I love the colours and detail in the rocks, but the out of focus rock at the foot of the image is in my opinion distracting, im sure you have a reason behind it but its not for me.

Love the top 4/5ths, but find the oof foreground very distracting. As presented I am wavering between a 5 or 6, but with a different crop or in camera framing, it may well have been a solid 8.

Beautifull light here and the comp works well leading into image. Foreground however is distracting here and blurred "nothing" should be cropped out. Just my 2c worth on it. Other might feel different? I would have gone closer to the edge and ad more depth to it that way. Always easy to comment like this when you havent been there yourself

Beautiful colors and sharpness in most of the scene, I love the light ... but the OOF foreground really spoils this for me. With that cropped out I would score this much higher.

IMO the bottom of this picture so distracts from the clarity and beauty of your shot...I would have easily bumped your score...you have such a stunning picture, beautiful colors...but the bottom just distracts...it is very beautiful...

i would love to vote this higher but that blur at the bottom is driving me crazy, it looks like something you painted in to hide something else?
