Very nice picture. Too bad you couldn't get the information in as this would have been a top 10 finisher.

Question: what kind of tripod did you use?

This is such a beautiful picture... I just wish the whole silloutte at the bottom was as crisp as it starts off to be on the right side.

wow this is a beautiful scene. great way to make the colours stand out with the sillouette in the foreground

this is rather stunning. it's let down a bit by the harsh banding eveident in the difference between the yellows, oranges and reds, but that aside it has very many strong points. the soft glow eminating from the water is gorgeous, as are the streaks of light in the sky. it's a pity spot editing isn't allowed as you could 1) make the land in the background a bit darker (it looks a tad washed out / orange to me) and 2) get rid of that little red dot in the foreground. these are minor complaints though - overall this is a stirring and dramatic landscape. 9.

This shot I like, really like. Normally I hate blurry photos but this one just really speaks to me, something with the mix of coloring, composition and most definately the mood in it really gets to me. I don´t think you are scoring well though as this is not a typical "do well on dpc" photo, I hope you are though but for what it´s worth, it got a 10 from me and wound up on my favorites list.

Oh man... If Mars had water, and plantation, I bet it would look just like this :) Very nice work :)

It's good to be alive when a scene like this can be witnessed. The colors are dramatic and the composition perfect.
06/21/2006 07:58:03 PM
Beautiful colors in this.

Very interesting. I think the colours are too fake looking but you know what I like? I love that the water is in the shape of Africa. Not sure if you planned the composition that way, but the red and orange colours compliment that shape. If that shape were not there the colours would not mean so much, now they take on a meaning of the hot African sun, etc. Well done.

Great composition, love the fiery orange tones. Also not suffering the motion blur so many of the entries are. Definitely one of my top picks.
06/21/2006 02:42:28 PM
Wow! Gorgeous. The glow is really brilliant.

Very surreal, almost like an otherwordly inferno in the distance.
