Greetings from the Critique Club!

So, Doc, we meet again...muwahahhahaahahhhh...

Artistic: Very colourful and textures are fantastic for something as amorphous as clouds. Just coming into twilight, I'd say, so the purists probably voted you down for not having star trails or the moon visible. Ah well. Their loss.

Technical: I like the light here and the dreaminess captured. The comp is a little straightforward but it isn't hurting the image. Just not extreme in any way. But an image like this shouldn't need extreme POVs to make it. Nice amount of pp, doesn't look overdone despite all the steps listed.

Overall: I think your final score and placing say it all. Great work, keep it up!

Feel free to PM me,

Susan

Beautiful! I'm so sorry I missed the sunset that night, I was stuck in the optometrist's office with my daughter at the time. I noticed the sky colour at around 3.30 pm and told the kids that there would be a great sunset!!

Very nice! Doesn't really look like a "night shot" though. The detail in the clouds suggest a relatively short shutter speed. Looks sunset-ish. Still a beautiful shot though. (voted earlier)

Although it is dramatic, the bright yellow orange may be distracting. I do give the image high marks though, for the pillowy sky and wispy tree branches.

The textures in the sky and tree really makes this image! And those tones just compliment everything. Very very nice!

Fine silhouette. Sort of close to the sun horizon event for this challenge, but it's a clear and colorful image.
