Critique Club
This is a beautiful sunset, unfortunately it wasn't strong on the before and after theme, except for the title. I think that this would have done MUCH better in the cliche challenge. However, DPC isn't the be all and end all of photography (though I often forget that!) and you have taken a stunning picture, which would be fantastic blown up and put on the wall. Your composition is great, with the silhouetted playground in the front, contrasting well with the vibrant colours of the sky. Perhaps a tiny amount of rotation would have got the land perfectly straight. Also might have cropped off half a cm off the right to get rid of the tree/building.
The sky is absolutely stunning, absolutely beautiful colours and textures.
You have exposed well for the sky, getting both the light and dark balanced perfectly. The use of silhoutte is great.
My Opinion
I can see your meaning of before and after here, but unfortunately maybe the link isn't obvious enough. This is a beautiful shot though and a very well captured sunset. Good Luck in the next challenge.

I think this is a most excellent photo, but {and i hate it when people say this to, and i do not mean to offend you} It doesnt seem to be before and after, just after. 8 otherwise it would be a ten. Kevin

This photo is effective with the title. Without it, the connection to the challenge is loose. I think it passes though :). Spectacular sunset, which I'm sure you're getting a great response to. I like the framing of the playground.

Beautiful shot. Not sure how this meets the challenge, even with the title.

Beautiful sunset! I like the composition but the horizon seems a bit off level. Seems a bit weak on topic to me. 7 Lisa

I love the colors. They are so rich and vibrant and deep. Postcard perfect. Can see this with the shimmery effect to it. Great job. Well done.

If it wasn't for the title I would not have guessed what the before and after was is your picture. Lovely sunset though!

This is a beautiful sunset photo. I love the silhouetted playground as well. The title leaves me wondering what the before/after theme of this photo really is... = 7 - setzler
