The Colours can get pretty intense when the sun is setting on the Lake Erie ice this time of year. As always, comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Great sunset Tom. The clouds simply look amazing. To be honest,I wish the tree wasn't there. It kinda distracts from the sunset a little. I've always thought that inluding trees in shots like that is always a trick job. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But great shot overall.

p.s. the frame is kinda industrial though. how about something more personal

Thanks for the comments. They are all valid. The tree thing is kind of hit-and-miss. In this case, it's simply what the world looks like from my window; it's part of the view.

With this shot, I was also concerned that the overall effect was too dark. I resisted the temptation to brighten/flatten it though, as I'm trying to break a bad habit of banishing all shadows.

Thanks again,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Nice shot Tom, I must admit to liking the tree in the pic, particularly with the cloud, it adds a deeper dimension [in my opinion]



Regards

I don't know, maybe it's just me but I like the picture a lot. I also like the tree in the picture and I like the frame. Good job all around in my opinion.

I think the tree is important here. It's part of the world as you say and brings it all into perspective. Oh, and don't banish all shadows.........some are an important statement.
Amazing view you have indeed.

From one sunset lover to another "Great shot Tom"!! I know what you mean about brightening, you made the right call in not doing it.

Very nice shot Tom. I wouldn't worry about the tree with a view like that.
