I really like how the sunlight is the hidden focus, the oranges are smooth and fade to dark which is well played with the darkness of the trees. It gives a sort of contrast that most people don't usually get very often. This is great wallpaper material or for a greeting card or business card. One thing I would work on is the intensity of your colors. Right now people are loving strong opposing colors that seem to clash, so maybe intensifying your hues with more exposure would be a good route to go. Don't be afraid to try other types of angles that are less traditional! Keep up the good work!
You never cease to amaze me with your photos, Nova. Kinda reminds me of a verse from Ghetto Gospel, with Tupac and Elton John:
Those who wish to follow me (my ghetto gospel)
I welcome with my hands. And the red sun sinks at last
into the hills of gold, and peace to this young warrior
without the sound of guns.
Sunsets like these give a great song an even deeper meaning in my eyes, a meaning you can truly see for yourself. I love how the sun is sinking just below the trees which act like the shroud of darkness. The clouds reflecting the sunlight also add to the beauty of this picture. Very well-taken shot, champ! Hope to see more.
