    Really great colors, but the cactus is out of place to me...almost looks cut out, not sure if its the crop or just how close it is to the camera. Incredible sunset though must have be nice to see

    Really close to camera, with fill flash, I also have it as a silhouette.

    It's the flash that makes it look a little funny. Still, interesting result.

    Was this taken with a tripod?

    if you would have used a less powerfull flash or a diffuser it would have made the cactus look more real...but still, Thats a picture Id make at least 8x10 or 8x12 and hang it on my wall.

    Love the colours and composition!

    The other thing that makes the cactus look a little odd is the color and direction of the light. With the sunset where it is, for the light to look natural it would need to be coming from way off to the left where the sun is and be that yellow instead of white.

    I like this shot quite a bit the way it is, but it might be interesting to get a cord or wireless for your flash and move it over that way, plus try putting a yellow gel on it.

    Ok, you guys are all talking about the cactus fill flash. Here is a Silhouette version.

    Yep, I still like the flash better. It would be fun to play with the different ideas, but of course you don't get a sunset like that every night. Or do you? :lol:

    Quite often. And yeah, messing around might make it better. Which do you guys prefer?

    I do like the first shot it has some real potential. As mentioned the use of the flash killed it though. It now looks as though it was photoshopped in there.

    Did you use a tripod for these?
