Photographers long for this shot! I am so jealous that you caught it. Early birds don't always get to catch a "good worm", but you did!! Way to go on your top 5!! (Should have been number 1, tho!)

i am confused whether to call it seascape or skyscape. Congs to make it both.

Wow.... look at the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 05:51:07 PM
Very dramatic. The dark blue to purple is interesting. The person adds to the effect. A little darker would be ok to stop the glare to the eye from the sun.

Well sone. The added walker adds alot to the image. Colors are very nice.

This is a strong entry - I love the bold rich colors of the sunset and that I can see the shape of that brilliant sun. My only suggestion for imporovement would be to have had the water line on the lower thirds horizontal line for a stronger composition.

Striking image.

5 - Ok, the clouds and sky look amazing, colors are nice and rich, but, criticism; whilst no expert on 'Landscapes', to me this is more about the sky, and there is not enough 'land' (or even land/ocean) incorporated in this shot. A sharper perspective perhaps, ground up, not sure, may have made this a better shot for the Challenge. Down to 5 from 6 on 'review', based on my above comments and learning of 'landscapes', tough call for this Challenge.

what a nice pallate of colors~! The sun actually hurts my eyes, because of the strong contrast of the black land with the white light.
