I photograph a lot of sunsets, and this is one's special.
The most striking part is the reflection. The stillness of the water makes it almost perfect. I like the colors, and I think the saturation is very well chosen. It doesn't blow you away, it's more relaxing. The composition is simple, and I think it works very well.
The foreground is just a bit dark, and that's probably my only complaint. It would be nice to have a Great Heron standing on the foreground, but you can't have it all.
Overall, a very impressive and well-polished work. Well done!
I had to write a critique, because this sunset is one of the beautifullest I've seen. Also, I love nature pictures, and the best ones I've seen are all made in Finland
I adore the grass on the bottom of this picture, it looks interesting with all the kinks. The trees are nice, and I like that the water stands still and doesn't make any waves.
The most amazing details are the clouds, it makes the picture unique, although it isn't very original... But the coulds, they have something that the other sunset-pictures don't have. The colors of the picture are soft, they are making a reassuring feeling.
All in one, I like this picture very much, especially the coulds. I hope you will make more of such beautiful pictures of Finland
This is a wonderful photo. It captured contrast of the jetblack silhouettes at the horizon and the soft colour shadings of the sky and its reflection. You show us again how mother earth surprises us with a wide range of natural colours. The silhouettes work even better with that yellow surrounding it.
The clouds seem to frame the picture and because of their stretched form they almost seem like speedlines pointing towars the horizontal line of this piece, which is lighter. Smart choice of format aswell.
