[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I live on the shores of Lake Erie, the big lake gives us some big weather sometimes! I see so many beautiful sunrises and sunsets. This one I particulary like because the sky everwhere was this bright bright color..like it was ...on fire..I just stand in my backyard in awe...

There were a few abnormalities to the landscape that I cloned out as well as a wire which crossed the photo in a bad spot.

What beautiful colors. The horizon is positioned appropriately. Cloning's done well. Good job!

you did a very good job on the cloning of the wire. I can't tell where it was origianlly. The picture has a good composition and the forground in stilhoutte is excellent, but I think its a tad over sharpened again (Sorry).


Hello Donna,
Dramatic sky, where I appreciate the lines created by the cloud formations!
Interesting to see the different layers in the sky, and the contrast to the silhouettes on the ground!

Hi Donna,
What a beautiful sunset. Especially the colors of the clouds in the upper part of the sky. Sharpness seems to be OK on my monitor since the details in the silhouttes are perfect. Great job on the cloning, since I can't tell where the wires were.
