Couple of shots from yesterday.... shot it on "scene mode- sunset"
C/C If youd like.
nice photograph. but i think is it too dark?
1 comment, really? ...haha.
1. I dont like the branch coming up from the bottom
2. Horizon line is really close to the center, dont really like that
3. I would have to say this is the best out of all three
Over all its a great sunset but the photos really dont do anything to me, i dont know why.
I like number three the best- It's more appealing to my eyes because you chose to put less of the silouhetted foreground in the fame, to get more of the nice orange sky in the frame. The light slop of the hill follows the rule of thirds nicely, as does the position of the brightest area of the sun disappearing into the horizon. Simple, and visually relaxing =)
The other two both have either too much distraction from the tree branches, or less compositional value. I do like the "smoothness" of the colors in the first photo though. Good job, and don't be embarrased to use the scene modes from time to time- they can be a quick way to capture something on the fly, and it seemed to work nicely here!
I like #1 the best
#2 & #3 are sunsets by the dozen, nothing to draw much attention.
#1 is more interesting, as you have mixed a sunset and silhouette together.
It is a little dark.
Try cropping a little off the bottom and some of the dark area on the right side. let us see what it looks like.
