Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Gracious...

Nice sunset shot. The sky is beautiful :)

Compositionally, I think this photo is a bit lacking. I like landscapes that have an 'entry path'. This photo feels to me like it lacks grounding... a place for me to stand as I view the shot. Maybe you can find a composition that creates a nice foreground in this scene. Create that 'footing' and create a pathway....

Keep up the good work :)

Lovely photo! I think the picture could be improved by a small counter-clockwise rotation so that the far shore looks horizontal and the reflections look vertical.

The title is a bit overwrought for me, but the shot is nice.

I considered this the best of the sunrise/sunset shots during this challenge.

nice range of orange hues

Very interesting!

It really does look like fire. excellent. 10

Beautiful scene with amazing cloud formation. Image is distractingly skewed clockwise though.

Lovely composition, unusual clouds.

Orange sunsets are pretty obvious but this one is magnificent. Very nice photo.

Great shot. The detail of the sky and the warmth of the colors in the water work well in this photo. Either you waited days for these conditions or you got so lucky! Nice work.

Beautiful sunset and reflection. I like the composition with the water and the shore. If I had to pick out one small suggestion, I would say that it would be nice not to have lost part of the shoreline on the right.

That is a very odd and awesome sky. Great Image.
03/26/2004 09:12:29 AM
Just a tad more contrast and a got a ribbon

Great shot.
03/25/2004 09:01:56 PM
Wow - what a sky. Great capture.

Amazingly stunning shot, this is beautiful. This sky is amazing. There is nothing like natural art. I love it. 10

Good pic. Hi! I was rereading my comment and it sounds much harsher than I meant it to be. I like lakes and skies and gave your photo a better than average score. What I really want to say is there seem to be many similar type photos and with your talents you would score higher applying your creativity to something more unusual. I hope that sounds more constructive.

Stunning. slightly tilted or is it me :)
03/25/2004 04:00:26 PM
stunning cols, is this place nearby, if so lucky you

I really like the image, it is very dramatic. The only problem IMO is that the water looks to be on a slope, although I think that it is just the shadows are sloping and the horizon is indeed flat, its a litle distracting. Nice image all the same 7/10
03/24/2004 05:34:29 PM
Awesome sky, but the horizon line seems downhill.
03/24/2004 03:26:28 PM
WOW!!! What a spectacular sky. I'm curious what you would have seen if you panned more to the left. It seams that you cropped it just as it was building up in intensity.
03/24/2004 02:37:03 PM
Wow. I wish I could offer something more useful than that. Perhaps the horizon could be a little more level, but that's it.

Out of the plethora of sunset pictures in this challenge yours was amoung my top 3
03/24/2004 08:45:49 AM
Remiends me of the song" Fire in the sky" Very good
03/24/2004 07:58:51 AM
great orange shot!
03/24/2004 03:54:25 AM
Its a bit crooked i think... or maybe the composition is just not balanced... but a good shot overall! 7
