[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A lovely sunset seen over the Istind (Ice Peak) mountain in Troms.
This picture is actually taken from my living room window, in january. The sun isn`t up for long during winter as you can see from this picture taken at about 2pm. Fortunately it is almost summer now, and the you have the issue that the sun won`t set at all, so no red sunsets for a few months...!

Post processing:
Making two layers: 1)the sky and 2) the mountain
Adjusting levels, curves and colour to bring out the strong sunset feeling as when I captured the image.

hello Torbjorn,
Lovely sunset, with very nice colours. You have doing a good composition. Only a bit of noise in sky.

Hi Torbjorn.
The colours are gorgeous. The warm clouds are a nice contrast to the cool looking ...okay cold mountains. Janice

Hello Torbjorn,
Fantastic capture of this beautiful landscape. Excellent composition, great light and nice soft colours.
Well done,

Hi Torbjorn,
Beautiful colors and a super exposure. Espcialy the colors on this side of the mountain are amazing. I love the simplicity of the composition.

The view from your window! you are so, so very lucky. I once had a view like this as well, but had to leave with much sorrow.

I love the mountain peak with the sky on fire, it is excellent, but I feel that the mountain could be sharper and the sky less noisy. I had a play and did you a WS - see what you think..

Ha!!! This is an amazingly coloured landscape. It's sunset but not the trivial one. Nicely composed and great idea to cpntrast the cold snow with warm colours of the sky. I like the workshop too.
Best greetings,
