Shot in colour, nice sunset already. Then changed to greyscale, a sunlight was added, then copied onto second layer(I wish this was smaller than the first) This is my first submission for a long time and I have enjoyed playing with all the tools and effects that I have never used before-I tend not to remember what I have used but sharpened, layers, levels,curves, sunlight burst: I just play with it until i like it!

Wow! Ditto to the "Nice Work" comment! This is amazing. striking. dramatic. And your first challenge in over 3-1/2 years! I hope you are back for more because I'm noticing other pictures on your profile that look stunning. Can't wait to see more!

Greetings from the Critique Club

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Natasha, Nice Work!

I love to see this kind of experimentation and that's why it's fun to be in the Critique Club; surprises like this come along once in a while.

Your black to white balance is beautiful, and your subject matter intriguing. It could be desert plateaus in Arizona, or on Mars as one of your commentators suggests with his SciFi comment. Or it could be a couple of fully armed aliens...or...

About the only compositional thing that bothers me about this fine image is the number of light rays you've added. Two suns could be believable, but that extra set of rays, to me, well, maybe a bit much.

And yes, I see the vertical black line another commentator noticed. I bet you didn't see it until it was too late.

I'm glad you entered, and please don't wait a long time before you enter again!

Excellent. Just excellent. It draws you in with its simplicity - but I'm guessing this wasn't all that easy to create.

What is that line in the middle? Bad layer blending in photoshop?
