[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The setting sun over the African desert is a moment to live for. This is one of a number I experienced in Botswana in late December last year. Taken after a brief rainy spell that afternoon, the clouds cleared to provide this setting. I captured this one through the trees.

I particularly like the way the trees form a frame around the setting sun. Hope you enjoy it too.

Hi Reinier,

Personal assessment of the photo: very good. I would have turned it a little bit clockwise.
Capacity of evocation in me: strong.
Strong visual impact.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.
Thank you very much Reinier.

Reinier, colors are really very nice.

Besides, great pov. Maybe, I'd try a slightly different composition, with less space in the bottom, but that's just an opinion.

I like mood too.

I love the different colours that are shown in this pic. It is very well captured. Well Done. Sheriff

Hello Reinier, this a very nice shot. I love the lighting and the colours are super. I would like to rotate this a little clockwise but that's all. Very well done.
