Another shot from one of the nicest sunsets I've seen this year :)

Location: North arm of the Fraser River, Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Equipment: Nikon D90 + Tokina 11-16mm.
Technique: Photomatix Pro 4.1 and Photoshop CS5 from 3 RAW exposures.

It's interesting to see how the light changes within just a few minutes -

This feels rather left-weighted. In this shot, you have the grass/"shoreline" balance the sun on the other side.

On the other hand, the overall colors and the textures in the clouds are superior and more unique in this shot. But in the end, the better composed shot wins despite the far more interesting subject.

Furthermore, the grass seems to obscure the reflection of the clouds on the left. Another reason, I think, to lessen the amount of grass on the left side.

Good choice of frame size here. I think this particular one works better for this shot than the traditional, longer and horizontal one.

The sun/horizon line are also placed in a nice location.

In fact, aside from the aforementioned problem, this shot approaches perfection.
What do you think?

I've lived for a large part of my life in BC and I don't think I've seen better pictures of it's beauty than I've seen in your gallery. On a cloudy day with the rain moving in it's easy to forget how spectacular this province can be.

These are such Beautiful shots. Beautiful British Columbia. I find it almost ironic, So many people that live in BC, but yet i think a good portion of them have never seen the real Beauty that BC can truly hold. I have lived here all my life, and i have barely seen that many Beautiful landscapes like these. Great Job! :D

This picture has a great sense of motion from the rolling clouds and their super clear reflection in the glassy water. I don't think i've ever seen such calm water on such a cloudy day! And the way it's cropped really adds to the...almost symmetrical look the reflection gives. Added to very calm color scheme with the glowing orange, the cool greys, and the soft blues, this picture gives me the impression of an evening steel with a light breeze. Very relaxing, well done!

Stunning, as for the light change, it's more like a few seconds, usually the time it takes to get your equipment set up, or maybe that's just me not being :sprint: enough !

Попробуй делать само солнце мягче.

It's interesting to see how the light changes within just a few minutes - вот в это и есть бог, а ты просто из-за своей зациклинности на мелочах и фактах, в которых любишь копаться, не понимаешь этого. Просто жаль.
