Hi Chris...
Incredible my friend, incredible colors and ambience... The composition is perfect...
And great shot...
Stay well..

I seem to be behind with your photos. Three of them I hadn't seen. I like the one with the driftwood, but then I decided to come to this one. The foreground silhouettes really make this scene. Very good composition and colours. You have a good eye for composing land/seascapes.

Hi Chris,
Very nice sunset with superb colors. I like the silhouette of these trees in the foreground with the mountains and the nice clouds shape in the sky. TFS

And yet, anotehr great sunset. Love the tree branches, makeing a natural frame here. Colours are warm and inviting and the scenery is wonderful!!

Great job!

Take care, Stef :))

Hi Chris,
The whole area appears to be on fire in this one. I would have preferred a little less cluttre in the FG so that the viewer can enjoy the horizon a bit more, but that is just my humble preference. It is a great shot, but what else do we expect from you?

and the sky is burning....
have a nice day

Hi Chris,
it's a very clever way to photograph the sunset. I like very much the colour of this photo - I think this saturation of orange colour comes naturally from the sun, am I right? My first thought was that you helped a bit with postprocessing. But it looks so natural... :-) Very nice, moody composition. tfs


Yiawzza Chris!
Now this is what I call a paradise photo! Excellent colour! Excellent natural frame with trees! Excellent POV.. did I mention excellent?

Well done mate :)

What a nice colorful sunset picture! Lovely composition! Interesting visual effects created here by putting the focus in the backfround instead of putting it on the branhes in the fg! Well done! Michel
