    The Setting Sun

    A light 3-frame HDR processing on this evening's sunset. Not sure if there is enough "wow" in the frame to do anything with, but at least I had fun making it!

    I think for a silhouette to hold its own in any photo the POI has to be something you don't see every day or is a bit out of the ordinary. This tree might make an arborist get a bit excited Ken but its not working for me sorry. It could also be that the bottom third seems to be non contributing negative space. I hope this waffle makes some sort of sense.

    Isn't it a cool thing in nature that the colours never seem to clash...

    Ken, I would crop out the entire bottom 40% of the image, leave just enough to show the foreground (or middle ground) is beginning.

    I agree with GB1. Square crop it and lose most of the foreground

    Re: The Setting Sun

    Thanks guys, I figured that might be the consensus. Some of the vegetation in the lower section had some appeal, but the dark exposure doesn't do it justice.
