Hi Tony,
I am still hoping to see such a sunrise or sunset one day. I've search a lot, but never got it as intens as this. Rerally stunning colors and shapes in the sky. The way the edges of the cloud have this wonderful warm orange tone while the rest of the cloud has this cool dark blue color is wonderful. You have a bit of noise in the darker parts of the clouds. The way you used the tree to frame the photo is very clever.

A very impressive sky, captured well.

The silhouettes act as a super frame.
The exposure is great.


An amazing sky for sure Tony not only in intensity of colour but also cloud formations. Well done.

Hi Ho,
Just look at that cloud's formations!
It seems like a sci-fi movie or something like this!
The intensity of the colours and the mix of warm and cold tones makes this image a remarkable one.
You were really lucky to presence this wonderful light spectacle.
Many thanks to share it with us.
Warm regards,

Hi Tony,
magnificent sunrise, the sky seems to be on fire.
Gorgeous colors and wonderful textures makes this composition so special.
Very nice division of space, the silhouettes makes a great contrast to those strong colors.

Hi Tony,

A wonderful sunrise! The layers of colors and the texture of the clouds are a beautiful sight. I like the composition with just the tops of the trees showing. Lovely framing by the leaves on the side.

Hello Tony,
This is an amazing sky! Exposure and composition are superb but I must say that it would have been nicer without the house’s roof and antenna ;) Nature could be so flamboyant; well done and TFS,

Title and atmosphere are really impressive! Burning sky! Fantastic photo!

Hey Tony!
I made a mistake here actually..
You know when you mark the note as useful, the entire page disappears and comes back, sometimes with what you've typed in, and sometimes without!So I normally copy the critique and paste it when it comes back blank!This time, I guess, I forgot to copy it, and pasted the critique of the older one!
Sorry about that!
I love the dark silhouette and the almost painting like effect of the clouds, and the natural warm colours!
Very well done!And apologies for the wrong critique getting accidentally posted!
Warm regards,

Hi Tony
This is such a dramatic sunrise. The colours and textures in the clouds are just amazing. It's hard to believe sometimes that our skys can light up so beautifully. Awe inspiring.
Thanks for sharing this sunset.
