I'm a big fan of landscapes and this one is a stunner. The composition is spot on, IMO, and I just love how my is drawn to the sun and then there's plenty to lead it around the canvas.

This is my favorite image of yours so far. The orientation of the sunset with the tree on the right, which itself helps frame the extended pier below, gives the composition wonderful balance. The sky color and clouds are stunning.

The tree is a bit oversharpened, you can see a small amount of white haloing in the branches. I'd recommend correcting that for show. Could be my monitor is dark, but it looks like the pier on the right side in particular is a bit lost in the shadows. You might consider dodging the pier to bring out more light from behind it to add better definition to the pier itself.

This is great image worthy of a gallery showing. I'd be proud to have it in my sunrise/sunset collections.

Congratulations on your 16th place!!!

6.5+ score

You have officially surpassed me....well in score. But you'll probably ribbon soon.

I myself have just been frustrated cause there have been so many great challenges I'd like to do and absolutely no time.

Very nice landscape shot. I like the reds of the sky with the orange sun burning through. The legs of the pier are a little too busy, but overall a very nice shot. 8.

Very nice. Sharpening halos around the tree branches appear un-natural.
