    Great contrast and focus. The sunset can tend to get overexposed, but you kept it nicely resolved.

    The orange in this image really stands out. The trees seem to distract just slightly

    This is a great photo! I really like the contrast between the mountains and the clouds with the light illuminating the bottom side of the clouds. Great work!

    – Great clear image of the clouds.
    – I really like the colors in this image and furthermore the darkness of the mountains.

    The golds in this sunset are very cool. The top of the frame stops at the right place but I do wish there was just a little more of the mountains at the bottom.

    I like the feel of the clouds, and the detail in the picture. Clear and crisp.

    I appreciate the natural look of this photo. My only feedback would be trying to minimize the over exposed area at the most intensely lit area near the sun.

    I like the glow on the underside of the clouds. The clouds seem defined especially where the glow is.

    1. The image is wonderfully artistic, and the curves of the flatties really add dimension to the image.
    2. The flow is clearly demonstrated.
    3. The photographic technique is very nice and the sunset colors are very pleasing and highlight the clouds.

    I dont know why but I really like the blacked out foreground in any sunrise/sunset image. I like how you can see the continuous mountain range except for the tree in the bottom right, thats my only criticism. The gold in the clouds really makes this image.

    Good contrast within the image. It was interesting to see the light source only being able to illuminate a little part of the overall cloud structure. Makes more for a very brooding vibe.

    The image is well resolved and cleanly focused on the horizon. The golden tinge in the center is aesthetically pleasing and adds a warmer, contrasting hue to the overall, cool colors in the rest of the image.

    I love the yellow seeping into the clouds. Provides a beautiful contrast to the light blues and greys. Love how the clouds frame the image. I like the little bit of mountain showing, it gives even more contrast to the bright yellow.

    Art: I really like the color contrast with golds and blues.
    Flow: The flow is quickly understandable and easily recognized.
    Photographic technique: The focus of the Clouds is great, especially with the light reflecting off of the bottom of the clouds.

    I am very surprised about the color of the photo. The yellow and grey color of the clouds come out at the same moment. Colorful and enjoyable.

    This sunset was a beautiful one. The yellow glow goes with the blue tones very well.

    Excellent contrast between the deep yellows/golds in the lower clouds and the darkness in the upper clouds. Crisp well focused image. Nice silhouette of the foothills in the bottom of the image.

    This photo shows the clouds really nicely, I like how the sunlight is hitting the bottom of the clouds. The framing of the sky with the mountains and trees at the bottom are nice.

    nice image the way that the sun reflects off of the bottom of the clouds. reminds me of a crisp evening with a cold sky. i like the way the mountains give a slight perspective of the photo.

    The contrasting colors are very interesting. I like the mountain in the left side; it’s a nice supplement but doesn’t distract from the clouds. The yellow clouds aren’t quite as detailed as the darker ones, which is interesting.

    Love the orange colors from the sun hitting the bottom side of the clouds. Really cool to see that bit of rainfall get illuminated as well.

    Really nice colors in this picture. Don’t usually see such yellows, and that contrasts very nicely with the still-blue sky.

    The orange glow from the sunset brings an amazing color to an almost black and white image. This color helped bring out great contrast.
