Date Uploaded: Sep 2, 2007

This was one of many shots I took on this particular afternoon. I had just spent the day setting up dozens of cameras, lenses and printers with a rep from Canon. We were both tired but still managed to go and sit out on the cliffs and photograph this sunset. We then went on to have a great meal with the team and three very successful days with the public. We were all exhausted but at least the Canon guy went away with some proof of the beauty that Emerald has to offer.

Above is the small version of the print version.

Due to the copyright uncertainty on the quotation on the entry...I uploaded a printable version for the image to DPC Prints...but with a different quotation. The quotation on the print version is the same as the one on this image.

We get sunsets here, too, it's only raining today. Well done, nice sunset, with that tiny-creature, maybe represents us, among our vast dreams and possibiilities. Now to make my dreams come true I just have to follow the next 50 motivational posters.

Many times I pick a prominent color out of a photo to use as part of the digital matting and frame.

This image sucks, it´s way to centered compositionally and it´s too dark, did you check your monitor, most of it´s black? Also your lens seems to suck as well, it vignettes too much apparently!

Just kidding :) Love the shot Judi, I would buy this as a poster, love the sunset and it´s well composed, sometimes the rule of thirds is not the best way to go :) Congrats!

Lovely, but don't care for the dead center shot. More efffective would be to snap the bird right or left.

beautiful shot, goes well with the message. don't like the vignetting, though. good choice of color for text and border. font faces and sizes are not too well chosen, layout looks a bit unbalanced

Striking sunset shot! Great timing with the pelican(?).

This glows. Doesn't scream original but it's hard to resist it's charm.

09/03/2007 06:53:58 PM
Awsome picture! The implementation of the text is not overly inspiring...looks a bit boring. Maybe a different font?
