What do you all think?
I'm too much of a Noob to C&C, but I love how the bottom clouds look like lips
You have some really nice colors and natural framing (i.e., the trees) in there.
oh god, now all I see are the lips!
I love the colors but the shot isn't too exciting for me.
To be honest: Sunset=cliche (99% of the time). Nice colours, although they look slightly over-processed to me. A good sunset image is generally one in which the sunset is not the main or only subject; eg, the sun setting over a ship on the ocean, behind mountains, etc. Like fireworks, sunsets need something to anchor them.
The lips are the first thing I saw and then thought.....Mick Jagger.
Haha, after looking it over I still don't see the lips.
To me this was all about the colors, nothing else. I climbed up on the roof of my house so that I could get the power lines, light poles, and trees as low in the shot as possible. I still had to crop off the bottom because it had some power lines in it. Although I may just clone those out.
FYI, the only post processing done was a crop, a curves adjustment to brighten the image up a bit and add contrast, a resize for the web, the logo, and a smart sharpen.
Thanks for all the comments so far!
EDIT: nevermind I see the lips now!
