There is always photos like these someone is uploading. However, it is always great to see a wonderful photo like this. You Nova sure do see some of the best stuff around to.

Every photo such as what you upload never get old. Even the colors of the sunset and the clouds covering the sun. Also some of the shine that passes the clouds. Like in this one where the clouds are greyish/orangish, spread out, covering the sun as it goes down. I love how photos like these never get old. Keep it up. You do really well with photo taking.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
28 out of 30 deviants thought this was fair.

This is a very beautiful image. The contrast really gives marvelous strength to both the sun rays, and the clouds, while sharpening the trees at the bottom of the image. The movement and explosive color of the sun changing from orange red to a magenta purple is very smooth without over emphasizing the purple in the sky.

I give the vision a 5 star because you were able to capture such a great image and then alter it just enough without turning it into an over done image which can lose all it's beauty.

I gave only 4 stars to originality because I have seen many images of sunsets before, but I have never seen them quite with this color scheme.

Five stars to technique, because again, I have never seen this color scheme with this type of contrast and movement before, other images where they have all three, one always overshadows the other (there's too much contrast which takes away from the movement or too much color that takes away from the contrast etc)

And finally I gave you 5 stars for impact because I was just strolling along DA and I saw this image and it took my breath away.

Overall wonderful work, it's quite beautiful.
