What hit me straight away with this photograph was the striking colours of the sunset. The contrasting silhouette of the foreground plants make the vivid oranges and yellows even more dramatic.

I think that the clouds help give texture to the background avoiding an empty space but it's subtle enough not to compete and overthrough the detail in the plants.

There is one issue that seems to stand out and that's the fuzziness of the silhouetted plants. In a smaller piece, like say a postcard for example, this wouldn't be as much of an issue but I think a larger piece like this on a large canvas - the image may need to much sharper.

However, the overall photograph is very good and is definitely comparible with other good photography on deviantART.

Hmmm, a sunset vista... Well, what I can say, it's very very nice. Although it was a little edited, I like it anyway =) It's obvious that is a well-made photography, and it came out pretty good. Definition is practically perfect, with excellently highlighted colours, magnificent sharpness and a good saturation level. I can't give a fully excellent mark to the originality due to many photos of sunsets that I saw until now, therefore this is not a new thing. Apart from this, I think that the photographer used a very good technique for take a photo of this fantastic twilight, and the crepuscular light in this picture has a fine and remarkable impact. So, in my humble point of view, this is an A-1 work, and I'm rather sure that many watchers will agree with me.

A título de experiência recomendo vivamente tentar tirar esta foto outra vez sem aquelas folhas no canto superior direito.
Por um lado, a imagem ganha perseptiva e profundidade de visão com elas, mas não estou certo uma versão sem esse elemento não teria mais impacto direto, é questão de experimentar mesmo.
De qualquer modo, muito bonita (: As cores estão maravilhosas e o enquadramento está muito bom.

Sim, concordo com você... Eu havia conseguido remover estas folhas usando o Photoshop... Só que preferi deixar assim mesmo(Até porque já havia uma crítica na foto dizendo sobre as tais folhas), talvez outro dia eu tente tirar uma foto novamente neste local sem os ramos.
De qualquer forma, é vivendo e aprendendo! :)
Quando tirei essa foto, não tinha muita idéia de como fazer uma boa foto, pois havia começado a tirar fotos a pouco mais de 2 mêses, a única coisa que tinha aprendido era, principalmente por experiência(antes eu tirava fotos com meu celular) e um pouco em fóruns, sites e livros de fotografia( a maioria meio antigos).

Estou a ver, muitas vezes penso semelhante, e essa sensação de aprendizagem não para (:
Vivendo e aprendendo, é assim mesmo - e nunca esquecer que gostos são gostos, a imagem final deve sempre ficar de modo que lhe agrade mais. As ideias dos outros são boas para experimentar, venham elas de um livro "profissional" ou de algum comentário na internet... mas no fim é a sua visão pessoal que conta, e penso que só deverá aplicar essas ideias se achar realmente que realmente fica a gostar mais das suas imagens, pois só assim serão fotos realmente suas (:
