Gem of the Day by 4everN3rdy Gem of the Day by 4everN3rdy
Sometimes I get really lucky with my pictures. I was frantically trying to get set up before the sunset ended and this was actually supposed to just be a "test" photo so I could figure out exposure and such. I didn't even really try to aim my camera but somehow got this out of it. Easily one of the best pictures I've taken this year. Unfortunately none of the others from the day are anywhere near as good.

This is a beautiful photo that I like pretty much.

The landscape is wonderful and the sunset is a lovely addion.
I like the colours in this photo - the green of the Meadow, the blue of the sky, and the golden light of the sun is just amazing.
But from my Point of view there's too much of the ground in the Picture and not enough of the beautiful sky.
I would like it better that way.

But don't get me wrong, well done though!
Good Job :)

Thank you for the compliments!

I believe you are correct in your opinion. This is one of my favorites, and so I have spent much time looking at it. There are a few things that I wish I had done better though. Things like the lens flair on the left, pointing the camera up slightly more ( :) ), and maybe even finding a way to make the sun not quite so...overwhelming.

The moment has passed but hopefully I can use these lessons in the future!

Great shot.... I like the combination in detail of the hills, the clouds, and the sunset with it's beautiful beams of light. Nice shot!
