Burning Sunset by timbodon Burning Sunset by timbodon
Captured on a recent trip down to the snowy mountains in NSW, Australia. I sat on the edge of this lake for over 2 hours just waiting and comtemplating life. And then, in a moment of sheer jubilation, this colour started spreading across the sky. Its moments like these you are glad you have a hobby such as this.

Thanks for looking

It's not just being there that counts, you've got to have the skill to capture the moment, this is a beautifully and classically composed image. If you were looking for a set of images to try and teach or explain the basics of good photography then this would be in that group.

I will concede that being there at the right time is important (I would love to take one of those beautiful macro shots of dragonflies in the early morning dew but I'm too lazy to get both the venue or the time right), however, I can guarantee you that a lot/most people would have got home, after witnessing a view like this, uttering things like "you had to be there, it was amazing" when proudly showing off their more than average shots.

Unfortunately the Exif data is missing on your image, so we can't determine things like the camera, lens, aperture or shutter speed settings but we can guess that you might have used a tripod and a slow shutter speed to maximise the depth of field and perhaps add to the calm atmosphere. It shows, beautifully, how a landscape can be captured in the portrait format and helps to draw the viewer in, right from where they are standing, through to the horizon. This would be a good image to use to show the principle of 'the rule of thirds' and how a landscape or water-scape shot can be improved with the addition of foreground interest.

Sorry for waffling on!

I think what I'm trying to say is I like this :)

Thanks for the info as it's probably one of the most important pieces of information for people trying to learn from each other. Sorry for waffling on before but after reading what I wrote, I think I got it just about write, this is a great image. That lens, by the way, looks like a lovely piece of kit :)
