Hiya,

You say "bad sunset", care to say a little more: I played around with this a photo a little on my own and came up with some ideas of what I like about the photo. You certainly have great scenerey, that is for sure. I can't rightly tell based on the picture, but I would have employed more of the use of thirds, incorporating a tad more of the foreground (if possible)... and I would take a series of different exposures, etc.

I like the picture and appreciate you posting it. All the best. Ned

Thanks Ned I appreciate your reply here's one with more foreground.

I refered to it as "bad" as in badlands.

Ned, feel free to post your ideas with this photo. It would be beneficial to see what others see.

Thanks.
Mike

Hi Mike,

Frankly, I like your foreground... both pictures are really interesting. And, in both pictures I experimented with cropping... and in each photo, just a little less sky (system of thirds thing)... seemed to work for me... I really like the composition of your picture. Thanks for sharing it. Take care.

Beautiful shot Mike! I have to go with the first photo, I think the mountains are much more interesting than the foreground. Breaking the rule of thirds doesn't bother me on this photo.

Mike,

Beautiful pictures. Is it meaningful to use the expression "purple haze" in this context?
