Au Revoir by MyLifeInFocus Au Revoir by MyLifeInFocus
This was the sunset last night and as I have had little time to find something to put up I went ahead and just used this as I didn't want to dig through my others. Colorado has had amazing sunsets for pretty much the past week and a half or so so I have a lot of pictures from them. I loved this shot as I thought the branches added some nice atmosphere to the photo as well as very simply, well, I'm a sucker for reflections. I was trying to get to the other side of the lake as the sky was lighting up further out east (this is west) but well doing so the horizon started to light up like this so I stopped and went for this instead. Always something amazing about being by the water watching a day end so spectacularly, as the cooler air of the night begins to take over and the warmth of the sun seeps out of the clouds. I hope I helped to convey that mood through this, if even a little bit.

I hope the branches are not too intrusive, and I'm not sure of that myself but nonetheless I hope you like this shot as well! Feel free to tell me what I did right or wrong with it!

BTW, that one tree towards the left is awesome, it's an attention-grabber and keeps visual interest in all the smudgy-ish black silhouette :)

I'm not a big fan of the branches in the top right, but the entire photograph is just GORGEOUS! You do get amazing sunsets there - the reflection is beautiful, I love the silhouette of the trees, and the colors are just so beautiful :'D Great job! Even a crop would look fine to get rid of the branches, but it's totally up to you and what you wanna do :D Either way, great photo!

Yea it cuts both ways, thank you though! The disadvantage is that that tree wasn't really an option to not have unless I were to run back up the trail, not the ideal place but I still like it :D And yes I like the tree as well haha :D

Wow! You are so lucky to be near water!! This photo is just amazing! I love it! :D I think that having branches on the left side would make the ones on the right work, but if you aren't able to have that option, I would go without the ones on the right.

Lucky?..just a bit :D It's amazing how close I am actually, not even a quarter mile I'd say :D And I agree with you about the branches but alas such a thing was not achievable here :D Thank you though!

I think I would like it even better without the branches, but I'm no expert. Nonetheless a great shot with brilliant colors and a very nice reflection if you ask me. =)

Thanks for the opinion :D Expert or no I'm always up to hear opinions. The branch wasn't something I was really planning on having however circumstances put me there with very little choice of not having it, I could crop it but I think I'd rather not :D Thank you though!

I couldn't agree more, cropping would a shame of this beautiful composition! =)
