You deserve a high score not only for the image. . . but catching the sun on the sagging wires. . . priceless! BOL 8

Got it! Made me laugh. You obviously had to be in the right place at the right time. Nice image too.

Perfect timing, good use of something that could easily be a distraction.

looked too quick on the first pass and assumed a typical under exposed meter reading.... but then came back to the placement of the sun. nice planning

The appeal of this photo is just what the title describes, how the sun "rests" on the wire (which is VERY cool, by the way). The silhouettes seem almost incidental IMO. Still a strong (7).

Wow, it looks like the sun is resting on the electrical line! 8

Nice. a potential distraction to a powerful shot becomes an asset. 8

Perfect timing, wires holding the sun. Great shot in all ways.

Nice shot. Looks like the sun is sitting on the power line. Love the colors. If it were a postcard, I would buy it.

Wow, nice catch.

Great shot!! Very creative and well caught. Horizon seems a litle slanted, and there is a lot of unused space in your frame (compared with how filled it is to the right). But great shot! 9

That is very beautiful!

I think I would have cropped this tighter. I like the way the sun appears to be balanced on the wire though.

05/17/2005 03:37:35 PM
great timing. Well observed and captured.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/17/2005 01:53:38 PM
quite exotic looking, like the sun hanging out on the power line. your a bit dark on it and the subject is vertually disappearing.

What a beautiful take on a sunset. Quite a keeper there. Make a print for yourself, for sure.

The right moment. :)
Hope you used a good filter, this must have hurt the eyes.

I don't normally like wires in pictures where they can possibly be removed, but hey, this is certainly an exception. Great idea, funny and well executed. Good Luck!

Good composition. I like the way the sun appears to be held up by the phone wires. A little too dark for my personal liking, but that is just IMHO. 7

Nice merge.
