A very pretty picture - not sure there's anything I would change on it. But then, I love sunrise and sunset pictures and there's lots of delicate detail in the trees (another thing I like). I'd be interested to read what suggestions others might have for it. The only thing I could come up with that I might try if I were taking the picture would be to take several different angles where the tree would block more or less of the sun. However, I suspect what you posted here would be the one I would like best.

I quite liked the silhouette of the branches spreadingall overtheimage like embridery and tasteful framing of theclouds, which, all together, convey a dramatic impression!

I only thought the sun partly blocked by the tree could be given a bit more 'peering'lookby means of lighting.

Hello,

Thanks!

Yeah. I didn't know what to do with the sun.

Also, I love the addition of the sunlight! It's great! I provides some perspective diagonals in this image which it is completely lacking & provides something to draw your eye into the image.

Amazing idea / eye!

I love it!

Thanks!
Glen

I think it's lovely and would not change a thing.

I am a bit of a silhouette fan myself. One of my fave film shots from 30 years ago was a "shot into the sun" on a beach. So:
You get my "great picture" vote for blending both silhouette and sunset.
I've had that "hide sun behind a tree" issue before, and I think you have the right balance.
