Hi Pablo.
You have shared a very colourful and pleasant to eye sunrise picture. Richness of sky colour palette makes a very good impression. I like your cropping and expressive gear line of horizon. This is such case when sharpness looks very nice. My best regards and TFS.

Nice cloud and colour, but a bit more cropping of the shadowy ground might help.

Hi Pablo

This is a formidable moment you managed ti capture here!
The colors of those clouds is simply magnificent and the fact that you managed to integrate those tree tops in the frame is great - it gives a lot of definition to the entire picture!
Alsp the framing and composition is excellent.

bonjour pablo
le ciel s'est embrasé de bonne heure semble t-il!
magnifiques couleurs.

Hello Pablo!
A very versatile morning sky with clouds like bold strokes from the brush of a master artist.
The dark mushroom-shaped cloud hovering over the dark forest seems to have its own pulsating, living identity.
The entire composition is of high artistic value and appeal.
TFS and take care.

Hi Pablo,

A small but fine picture, good vertical frame, splendid colours, wonderful contrast too! Also in Belgium are weather to warm for this period of the year.
Very well done!


Hi Pablo,
A very beautiful sunrise. The composition is perfect, with the perfect balance between mountian and sky. I love the different colors in the clouds, especially the almost purple colors in the top. The shapes of the clouds made this extra beautiful.

Hi Pablo,
A beautiful sunrise shot. Colors and clouds formation are magnificent. Is it suppose to be a clear sky in winter time? Regards,

Hello Pablo !
This picture is truly splendid. I love the colors and the patterns of these clouds, the sky seems to be on fire. The composition and POV are perfect. We have strange weather in France too, much too warm - usually we have frost during the night in november, but this year nothing... Anyway, it is a gorgeous picture, I love it !

Tarde pero seguro... una de la imágenes que había perdido en mi ausencia por unos días frente a las pantallas estimado amigo.
No creo que pueda agregar mucho a lo yo mencionado en todas las críticas.
Un perfecto retrato con los mejores colores que podrías haber captado, de un momento único.
Gracias y hasta la próxima... Ricardo

Late but sure... one of the images that I had lost in my absence for some days in front of the screens esteemed friend.
I don't believe that I can add much to all mentioned in the critiques.
A perfect portrait with the best colors that you could have captured, of an unique moment.
Thank you and until the next one... Ricardo

Ahhh! Thats just beautiful! I love sunrises and this is a most enjoyable view! I like the well balanced exposure and the use of the treeline to contrast the sky! Even though there are not many colours in a sunset, I really like the ones that has a colour spread like yoursm with the orange fire in the clouds and the blue sky in the right part of the picture.
Very nice!

Hello Pablo,
Beautiful sunrise! I love the shape and warm tones in clouds. All this make a magic, calm composition.

Hi dear Pablo ,

It's interesting to see a 9 o'clock sunrising - northern people are industrious, but your sun is a bit lazy... The colors are great! A work of art...

Hi Pablo!
I love the clouds! We can look to the sky all our lives and we will see diferent skies. You took this picture and a few minutes after, they gone forever. And maybe tomorrow you will see something even greater...

Welcome to MY world!

One day -29C , a foot of snow... Then temp shoots up and it rains for a day... Today -9C and a big windchill... But the snow is gone. The ground is bare and frozen.

Beautiful sunrise Pablo! Especially that blue streak, and the hint of blue above the sharply silhouetted trees!
Great compo! I like the "tall view" with the sun reflecting off the bottom of these clouds. Tfs. ;j.

Hi Pablo,

Just come across this one of yours...
Fully deserving of all the points, marvellous shot, such impact with those striking colours and the simple composition!

The little dark cloud is strange, from the thumbnail I thought at first it was a small hill!

Great shot - beautiful.

Hi dear Pablo;great a sunset view,best colors....

Hi Pablo,

This a splendid picture.
Very good POV and superb colors!


hi pablo!

I really like the colors from the sky and clouds and the mood they give to the scene.
The silhouettes of the trees also look beautiful.

Hi Pablo,
Fantastic!!! Sunrises and sunsets presents such glorious sky patterns and colour tones that is so pleasant to the eyes. This is no less. The silhouetted landscape brings in that touch of artistry. Wonderfully done. Kudos.

Very beautiful! Kinda ominous looking, with that dark cloud poised in colors of fire!

Hi Pablo,

Citation from Your intro update: "That in spite I really don’t belong here, or rather my photography doesn’t since I never photograph anything with feathers or four legs! I’m really surprised how well you have received my landscapes during this time…". I have to say: YOU OR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BELONG TO HERE! The fact that someone's a landscape specialist and doesn't capture for example animals doesn't mean his style of photographing is something not fitting to this site. Landscape photography is a serious part of nature photography, and You're very good at that. I know the 3 Trek-sites are so much to You, writing all those countless critiques on each, but I hope You stay here after a little break.

Thank You very much for the magic images - like this - You uploaded, the useful notes and critiques we all have learnt from (at least I did)! I hope You stay with us.

Greetings from Your Hungarian friend, László

Hello Pablo,
thanks again for visiting my post and giving me a motivated view. By sharing such it will greatly improve my knowledge and hope to be able to applly them to enhance my skills.
The strength of sun set or sun rise greatly depend on the richness of its sky,thr colours and uniqueness.
All these present in your shot, making this photo a lovely one, not to mentioned the elements of photography that you already know.
Beautiful and exciting.


Olá Pablo,
uma paisagem bonita essa, e com ótimas cores nesse alvorecer. Gostei das silhuetas das árvores também.
Parabéns e Abraço
