very nice colors, i love the silhouette...with the slight touch of sunset light, on the bottom

good composition....

a suggestion, that, may add or detract...i'm not sure but would be interesting to see....cloning out the smaller plant thats on the lower left hand side of the photo..

nicely done pavaros! great angle and composition!

thanks Vito! i agree with your suggestion, i ve tried it myself and looks good,but due to the graduated colour of the sunset at the background the cloning was not convincing...and the smaller plant, although small, it covers enough resolution to make the clonning difficult.
i haven found the time and the patience to do it properly yet..
feel free to have a try if you want.!

I see that too. With the gradient of the sunset around the area of that plant, it could be a hard close.

Nice pic though. Thanks for sharing.

I think it's great, but hte silhouette seems a little TOO dark, like you deited it. I usually like more natural looking photos. But it's still great. I lov hte foreground element.

ok, i said it would be a hard clone...aaaaand....

i was right..

lol....but i tried a technique i saw geoffs talking about, at another forum (selections with cloning...brilliant idea to say the least).

so, i magic wand(ed) the plant, and only cloned the sky colors, and it only pasted the colors on the sky...it's like a miracle! lol

well...here was my result!
