    You might want to link a larger copy so it's easier to see.

    You may not know you did it, but you followed the rule of thirds. For scenics or landscapes, we want to have the horizon follow along the bottom third line or the top third line. If you will take a look at your shot, you will see you followed both.

    So good job.

    Something that could enhance that image even further is choosing to shoot early or late in the day. This will enrich that scene and add more character.

    For a sunset or sunrise photo, you should further play with manual settings. The reason is because a faster shutter time than what the camera would normally choose, will serve to make those colors pop even more. You would actually be under exposing your image.

    So the only complaint I have is the time of day chosen. You could also try a neutral density filter to help that sky darken up if you really wanted to do this in the middle of the day when it is brighter.

    Over all, good job.

    Thanks. I posted it in the landscape gallery part of this forum (only posted 2 times because never knew to post it there) and the guy said that i must not know about the rule of thirds.
    Anyway yes I think it would be great at dawn or dusk but i was out and wanted to take some pictures. Thanks for your feedback

    I am going to give some constructive criticism. I think the shot has a lot of improvement to be done on it. You shouldn't have set the camera on the grass. If the grass was going to be in the picture, it needs to be in focus. It's also a little over exposed and under saturated for my taste.

    Keep practicing, you will get better!!!

    Imbedding an image from Flickr. Go to the picture you want to use from Flickr and click on "All Sizes" (above your picture). Select the size you want to display and then look below the picture for the #2 box that says "Grab the photo's URL:". Highlight to select it and then right click the selection and hit Cut (or Copy). Now go back to the TPF (The Photo Forum) post you want to imbed the image in. Click on the yellow icon above the message box (the one that looks like a mini-landscape). In the box that pops up, paste the URL in box (make sure you only have 1 "http://" in the URL line before you hit the Ok button). Hit the Ok button. Click on the "Preview Post" button to see if your picture is imbedded in the post.

    Looks like your sensor needs cleaning. I can see some spots in the sky and a big streak in the grass on the right side of the image.

    I'm going to respectfully disagree with that statement, I think the OOF grass could frame the mountains nicely if the exposure & color were better... The trees in the photo are OOF which is way distracting to me... The horizon is crooked... And there's a crazy amount of sensor dust & a smudge (most likely on the lens)

    But not a bad shot.
