the day before i took this, i would NOT have needed to use PhotoShop to get the same colors - unfortunately, i was about 3 minutes too late to get the shot i wanted, so it was wait wait wait until the next day to see if i would get the same opportunity --- the answer was NO, CHUCKO -- so i'll take the next-best shot and tweak it, and that's what you see here (a PS to 'jerrft', under the right circumstances, the water reflects the color above it - have a look!)

Love the way you kept the sun from blinding you, and us. Great idea. Not so sure I like all the red. Is this the natural color it was? Good composition, nicely focused and cropped. Really like the talllllll tree. Normally wouldn't, but for some reason it looks good here. Love everything but the color. For me personally, I'd play around with the color some.

Awesome sunset. Great colors. I like how the sky sorta fades into the water. - Inspzil

Very nice composition - like the sun behind the tree. Great color.

This could become a postcard - so I guess it definitely meets the "cliche" component. Colours are wonderful, focus is very good and placing the sun behind the palm was a really good idea. Well done.

Yeah right....Nice shot. Beautiful colours.

Nice colours. Think I'd have preferred the sun seperate to the silhouette.

This is beautiful. My only nit is I would have liked you to use the rule of thirds here. Great colors and wonderful focus. Good Luck.

Wow that is so cool. The color going from white to yellow then to deep red is just AWESOME!!! And the lone palm tree is great. 9.

Delightfully full of color. A nice clean image with great focus, depth, and perspective.

This looks like a great postcard shot. Very nice colors. Good job keeping the sun from overpowering the tree. I think I'd like to see the bottom of the tree so it's anchored a little more, but it's still beautiful. 10

great composition

You/ve captured a very nice sunset with the sun behind the tree. Nice colors on the waters and the sky. I would like to have seen some beach or something. It's a nice sharp photo, but the sun is too bright for me and my eyes want to wander down to the coolness of the water.
02/03/2003 07:42:14 PM
Very nice sunset. I love the sun just behind the tree branches. May be cliche' but I never get tired of looking at them.

Beautiful colours of the sky. It is a simple yet effective calm looking image. I love the palm tree with the sun behind it. The water adds interest. Very well captured. GL.
